Terrell Owens had a very impressive workout Monday in Seattle and the Seahawks are engaged in contract negotiations with the free-agent wide receiver and expects to complete a deal soon, league sources told ESPN's Ed Werder.
Owens' time in the 40 was 4.45 seconds, sources said.
Owens hasn't played in the NFL since the 2010 season with Cincinnati when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns.
The 38-year-old Owens didn't get any NFL offers to play last season after surgery on his left knee.
If Owens makes the Seahawks' roster, expecting production from him might be a long shot based on recent history. According to ESPN Stats and Information, of the 187 NFL players with at least 20 catches last season, Donald Driver was the only one older than 35. Hines Ward and Tony Gonzalez each had more than 20 catches, but were just 35 last season.
Owens had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing eight of 11 games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.
4.45 secpnds in the 40 (if true) means the guy's in serious shape, must be motivated and hungry for action. Hope it works out well for him so he can finally retire with some dignity and money for his family.
I have never been an Owens fan but the guy works harder then most and knows the game well. Even after he lost his speed was still making plays. The Seahawks have 2 QB they say they are looking at as starters so My guess is they need as many WR as they can get to keep those QBs going in practice. I have heard Carrol raving about Wilson but in the same breath says he can't start unless he gets a full camp. That is hard to do with 3 QBs competing.
