When Terrell Owens held his open workout sessions in Casablanca, California on Tuesday, no NFL reps were present. Although the big teams were absent from observing T.O.’s tryout, the free agent WR and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, say all 32 teams were interested, but weren’t making it known, according to ESPN.
“I definitely feel there are some teams out there that are interested,” Terrell Owns told the sports network.
As for Rosenhaus, he agreed with that statement.
“Just because they weren’’t there doesn’t mean they weren’’t interested,” he said. “I can guarantee that all 32 teams were interested.”
Rosenhaus told ESPN that from the conversations he held with the NFL teams, no one would be present for Owens’ practice sessions. He said the tryouts were organized to “create interest” and “buzz.”
The practice workout sessions were designed to prove Terrell Owens is healthy and fully recovered from his ACL surgery done in April.
If T.O. doesn’t sign on with anyone this year, he’ll pursue his NFL career in 2012. He’s not discouraged from the fact no one appeared for his tryouts, in which he caught passes from Casey Hansen, who played quarterback at Norfolk State and has played in the Arena Football League.
“I only need one team,” Owens is told the NFL Network on Tuesday. “I only need one chance.”
