RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle coach Pete Carroll says that despite the Seahawks’ decision to release Terrell Owens he still believes the 38-year-old wide receiver can play in the NFL.
Carroll said Monday he has no doubt that Owens can still play and would be surprised if he didn’t catch on with another team. Owens was released by the Seahawks on Sunday as they made their initial round of cuts to reach the 75-man league-mandated roster limit.
Owens arrived at Seahawks camp in terrific shape and looked good on the practice field, but couldn’t transfer it to the games. He had just two catches for 41 yards in two preseason games that were more notable for his drops.
But Carroll said the team would not rule out looking at Owens later in the season if needed. Carroll said Owens was great and did everything asked of him.
