AFL Team Offers Terrell Owens, Chicago Rush, Not Bears Step Up


Well at least one Chicago professional football team offered Terrell Owens. No, not the Bears of the NFL. But instead the Rush of the Arena Football League.

Go here to see why I think the Bears should step up to the T.O. plate.

According to a Rush team statement, the team “extended a contract to six-time NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Terrell Owens for the 2012 season. The contract will be good for the standard player agreement.”

As you no doubt have heard, Owens worked out Tuesday for NFL scouts, and zero teams showed up.

He last played for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010, putting up a 72-983-9. He was with Buffalo in ’09, played three for the Dallas Cowboys, two with the Philadelphia and eight with the San Francisco 49ers.

His career numbers read like this: 1,078 receptions, 15,934 yards and 153 TDs.

No doubt the Rush would get a huge attendance and public visibility boost should TO sign with the team, The team that calls Allstate Arena (or as I still call it, the Rosemont Horizon) home went 13-5 in 2011. Obviously bringing in Owens could mean championship in 2012.
