You can squash all the Terrell Owens to the Tennessee Titans talk.
After Coach Mike Munchak phrased an answer to a question about the Titans bringing in Owens with an answer that they wouldn't necessarily rule it if he were healthy, Munchak clarified those comments on Wednesday regarding the veteran wide receiver.
“He's not a guy specifically. It's rare that we would talk about anything in the future. Anything could happen weeks from now,” Munchak said. “I have no idea on his situation, his health. I don't even know if he'd have a chance to pass a physical this year, for all I know. But it was asked of me if he was completely healthy, would we take a look at him.
“And I said, well, depending on our situation. Like we've done every Monday or Tuesday here, we take a look at a group of guys and work them out and see if there is someone there that can help us win football games. And that's what you look at. If the timing was all perfectly right, would we bring a guy in and look at him? Sure. Not just him, but like we've been doing. Whoever that person may be. Not just necessarily him.”
Owens' agent Drew Rosenhaus said Wednesday via Twitter that Owens is ready to return to the NFL after working out. Owens tore his ACL playing basketball in the off-season and has been working to make a comeback.
He spent last season with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Also, Munchak is eager to bring along Donnie Avery, whom they signed three weeks ago when Kenny Britt was lost for the year with a torn ACL and MCL.
“We're happy with Damian. We're happy with Hawk. They're just young guys that have to continue to improve,” Munchak said. “Bringing Donnie in, he really hasn't had the opportunity to show us. But I think now, he's getting to the point where there is a comfort level between him and Matt to where he can get into the equation here in the next couple of weeks.”
