Terrell Owens Holds Workout At Calabasas High; No NFL Scouts Show
CALABASAS (CBS) — Free-agent wide receiver Terrell Owens worked out at Calabasas High School on Tuesday afternoon, trying to show he is completely recovered from left knee surgery.
No NFL scouts were there, but the workout was televised live on NFL Network and ESPN for teams to see.
Owens, 37, played just 14 games for the Cincinnati Bengals last season after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in April.
“I definitely feel there are some teams out there that are interested,” he told ESPN. “Just because they weren’t there doesn’t mean they weren’t interested. I can guarantee that all 32 teams were interested.”
Owens’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN Radio that the workout was designed to “create interest. We were trying to create a buzz.”
“I think that teams see that Terrell is healthy, that he is ready to play football,” he added.
Owens, a six-time pro bowler, had 72 receptions for 983 yards last season when Carson Palmer, who was traded to the Oakland Raiders last week, was quarterback.
