Seahawks sign WR Terrell Owens
August 9, 2012 · 2:40 PM
The Seahawks signed 38-year-old wide receiver Terrell Owens to a one-year deal Tuesday. Owens made his practice debut with the team Wednesday.
Owens didn't play in the NFL last year after suffering a torn ACL in April 2011. He came back late in the season to play for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.
Owens caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010. For his career, he had 1,078 catches for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns. Owens has only twice failed to top 55 catches in a season (1996 and 2009).
Owens gained a reputation for being a problem in the locker room during some of his previous stops, but Seattle isn't take much of a risk signing Owens to a one-year deal.
