Terrell Owens has always been a physical marvel.

The veteran receiver, listed at 6-foot-3 and 224 pounds, added to his legend Monday by running 40 yards in less than 4.5 seconds at age 38 and following surgery to repair a torn ACL.

It's no wonder, then, that the Seahawks are expected to sign Owens, as ESPN's Ed Werder reported.

Owens' reputation as a high-maintenance, somewhat unstable force precedes him. It raises legitimate questions about the wisdom of adding him to a locker room filled with quite a few young players and no established starting quarterback.

But if Owens can play at a high level -- and he should be motivated after encountering financial difficulties -- he can help a team.

More on this as the day progresses.
