Free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens is willing to play for the Washington Redskins.
"Well you know what? Definitely that's something that was on the radar," Owens told Nashville's WGFX this week, when asked if a reunion with Donovan McNabb was still a possibility. "And if that's a possibility and they want to bring me in and make that happen, then I'm open arms to it. And I think Donovan has come out and said that things that have happened in the past sometimes were overblown with the media. It's surprising how it takes some years to go by for things like that to come out, but Donovan and I are good friends now and we've talked. We just played in Pros vs. Joes with myself, him and Antonio Gates against some NBA champions - Hakeem Olajuwon, Rick Fox and Kenny Smith."
The conversation then switched to a less footbally tone, but later, the hosts asked Owens about which quarterbacks he'd like to play with. After mentioning Philip Rivers, he came back to McNabb.
"Obviously you mentioned reuniting with Donovan," Owens said, "but I think going to Washington and playing with him obviously would be a good thing, because I feel like their team is on the cusp of really getting to the playoffs and really making something happen. I'm just looking for a team that's in the hunt, obviously to get to the playoffs and obviously win it all. Because honestly, once you get to the playoffs, you never know what can happen."
Owens appeared to be a player on the decline in Buffalo last season, but playing with McNabb could rejuvenate him. However, just because Owens wants to play in Washington doesn't mean it will happen. The Redskins have to decide they want him and right now, a signing doesn't appear likely. Owens could offer fantasy value if he lands in the right situation, but until he actually signs with someone, there's no need to give him serious thought.
