There has been, as far as I know, very little scuttlebutt this off-season about Terrell Owens being pursued by the Vikings.
And if you were thinking of starting some kind of T.O.-to-Minnesota rumor…well, you can forget it. Because the Vikings categorically are not interested in the controversial wide receiver.
This news comes via no less a personage than Rick Spielman, who apparently discussed the matter with KSTP-TV (Minneapolis) sports director Joe Schmitt while they were playing golf.
And then Schmitt tweeted about it. So now we all know that the Vikings don’t want T.O.
Unless it’s all a smokescreen created via this elaborate plan involving Spielman, his golfing buddy and Twitter.
Interestingly, in the same tweet, Schmitt passed along the information that the Vikings are no longer in the running for the services of offensive lineman Chester Pitts, who had been scheduled to work out with the team at one point.
That was one informative tweet. Much better than mine, which are usually something like “That peanut tasted funny.”
