Titans coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday on his radio show on 104.5-FM that when WR Terrell Owens is healthy enough to pass a physical, the team would likely take a look at him..
Owens, a 15-year veteran, suffered a knee injury that required surgery during the offseason. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Oct. 7 that Owens should be medically cleared to return to the NFL in two to three weeks.
The Titans have been looking for help at wide receiver since Kenny Britt was lost for the year with a torn ACL and MCL in the third week of the season.
“That’s something that at some point when (Owens’) health is better and he can pass a physical – people thought the midpoint of the season, maybe – he might be a guy that may be able to to work out to prove where he’s at,” Munchak said. “So of course us, or whoever else, is going to take a look, just like we have with other free agents, to see what kind of shape he’s in.”
“A lot is going to depend for us on how we are producing at that (wide receiver) postion three weeks or two weeks from now, and how we’re doing (overall),” Munchak said. “All those things will factor into it. But I’m sure whenever you’ve got a player that has his capabilities, everyone’s going to know exactly where he’s at. If he has a way of helping our team win, then for sure you’re going to take a look at him.”
