Sorry T.O., you're not a good fit in K.C.
By Bill Williamson
Terrell Owens says he might be a good fit for Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Is that supposed to make us wonder what T.O. would look like in Chiefs red or, more importantly, should it make us wonder whether the Chiefs will bring Owens aboard?
This is Owens doing what he does. He’s trying to create a market for himself.
I always take the never-say-never approach when it comes to NFL moves. Anything is possible. Maybe the Chiefs will decide to pursue Owens. If so, it won’t be because Owens is trying to sell it.
This became a topic Wednesday morning when Owens said on the NFL Network that the Chiefs might be one of the teams that are a good fit for him. Owens played for new Kansas City coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia and had some success before it ended like most of Owens’ tenures with his six NFL teams -- badly.
While Owens thinks Kansas City would be a good fit for him, I can’t agree.
He is 39 and last played in 2010. Plus, the Chiefs are trying to build something, and there are a lot of good vibes around the team. I have serious doubts that Reid would bring in a player who majored in being a distraction into his first Kansas City locker room. It doesn’t seem plausible.
So right now, all this T.O. talk is just that: talk.
