Free agent Terrell Owens conducted a workout on Tuesday that was open to the media but no NFL teams showed up to see where Owens stood on his recovery from a torn ACL six months early. That's not a huge surprise because any team looking to sign him will bring him in for a visit.
Agent Drew Rosenhaus has said he hasn't gotten any calls from NFL teams but there is one football team out there that's offered a contract -- an Arena Football league team. The Chicago Rush, looking to capitalize on the T.O. attention, announced on Wednesday that they've extended a contract offer to Owens.
"We feel that this is an ideal time to approach the future NFL Hall of Famer," said Rush General Manager and President Gene Nudo. "It would be a fantastic honor to add Terrell to our current roster for the 2012 season."
"Terrell would absolutely complement our current wide receiving corps," said Rush Head Coach Bob McMillen. "His animation and over-the-top energy would be an excellent addition in the locker room, and the Chicago fans would undoubtedly welcome him here in Chicago."
Unfortunately for T.O. this may be his best shot at getting on the field this season.
