Together again? McNabb, T.O. reunion not so far-fetched
Posted Apr. 20 at 03:28 AM
Could Donovan McNabb be throwing passes to Terrell Owens for another NFC East team, just a few years after the two led the Eagles to the Super Bowl -- and then saw their relationship, and team, disintegrate a year later? According to an ESPN report, McNabb is lobbying for it.
Ed Werder says that the team "may have to go Owens" to upgrade its receiving corps, in a story at ESPN.com. He admits the move would be made reluctantly, but notes that McNabb and Owens have apparently mended fences since their previous problems, highlighted by Owens slamming McNabb with the "I wasn't the one who got tired in the Super Bowl" remark.
The Washington Post isn't so sure; Jason Reid says the team isn't known to have had any interest in Owens.
There are a few reasons why such a pairing does make sense. Washington does need wide receivers, with only Santana Moss and Devin Thomas clear NFL-caliber players at the position. And at this point, they only have four draft picks, so they might not be able to do much at the position in the draft.
And Owens himself, of course, needs a job. Thus far, no serious rumors have indicated any interest in the 36-year-old wideout.
For now we'll call this just a rumor, but you never know.
