T.O. wants to join Gang Green
By Mike Mazzeo
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- T.O. wants in on the circus.
During Monday night’s game against the Houston Texans, free agent Terrell Owens tweeted that the Jets should pick him up.
“Hey JETS!!! I’m available! I’m ready, willing & able! Call my agent @jordanwoy & let’s make it happen,” Owens tweeted.
The Jets' No. 1 wide receiver, Santonio Holmes, is already out for the season, while rookie wideout Stephen Hill missed Monday night’s game due to a hamstring injury. Against the Texans, slot man Jeremy Kerley was elevated to the top of the depth chart.
Jets coach Rex Ryan didn’t want to bring back veteran Plaxico Burress because he wanted to stay young at the position, so there’s little chance he’d change his mind and bring in Owens.
Owens, 38, last played in the NFL in 2010 as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.
