You’ve certainly heard by now that Terrell Owens was cut by the Dallas Cowboys (and if you haven’t…how’s that coma working out for you?). This means T.O. is now free to shop his services (and the considerable baggage that comes with them) to other teams, including the Vikings, who signaled by their pursuit of T.J. Houshmandzadeh that they are absolutely in the market for a veteran wide-out. Unfortunately, when it comes to the Vikings and Owens…let’s just say there are certain considerations that have nothing to do with whatever T.O. may or may not still be able to do on the field. I refer of course to T.O.’s history with Brad Childress, who was offensive coordinator during that whole nightmare in Philadelphia. The story goes that Owens became so fed up with Chilly that he ordered Chilly not to talk to him, an order Chilly ignored by yelling “Hey Terrell” every time Owens walked by (very mature). And then there’s the fact that Chilly testified against Owens when his grievance against the Eagles was finally heard by the league. There have been reports that the two eventually buried the hatchet…but the issue isn’t really any lingering animosity between them, it’s simply Chilly’s experience with Owens and his certainty that, no matter how pleasant T.O. behaved in the beginning, things would end up going down the crapper as soon as anything didn’t go T.O.’s say.
So no…there’s no way. Don’t even suggest it.
