Tom Brady, Terrell Owens connect
A day after being spotted with new New England Patriots teammate Danny Amendola working out at USC, Tom Brady was back on the field at the Trojans' facility and throwing passes to an unlikely target Wednesday: Terrell Owens.
Anything Left in The Tank?
Terrell Owens had one of the best seasons by a receiver at least 37 years of age in 2010 with 72 catches (fourth best) and tying Jerry Rice with nine touchdowns. But Owens is now 39 and only three receivers in NFL history have recorded catches at 39 or older:
The 39-year-old wide receiver spent just more than three weeks with the Seattle Seahawks during training camp last August but eventually was released prior to the start of the regular season. He spent the 2010 season with the Cincinnati Bengals, starting 11 of 14 games with 72 catches for 983 yards and nine touchdowns.
Owens is second in the NFL all time in receiving yards and third in receiving touchdowns.
Prior to signing with the Seahawks, Owens played in eight games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He also became a co-owner of that team upon signing.
The Patriots begin their offseason workout program April 15. Organized team activities start May 20.
