Terrell Owens Is Going To The AFC East! (And No, It's Not Where You Think)

Despite all that is going on around the college basketball circuit, I think the most surprising headline of the day goes to the NFL. I figured that it would be awhile for teams to sign T.O., but alas, that was not the case. Just mere days after being released, Terrell Owens has found a new home. Yes, he is going to the AFC East. No, he is not going to Newo N England. He is going to New York. Upstate New York, that is. Yep, you guessed it, Terrell Owens has signed with the Buffalo Bills! From

The Buffalo Bills and free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens have reached agreement on a one-year, $6.5 million contract. There will be a press conference at 6:15 p.m. ET at the team’s headquarters.
Um, wow...? Where to start with this one? First of all, Buffalo does not seem like a good fit for T.O. T.O. seems to thrive (and is used to) teams that have stability at the quarterback position. The Bills do not quite have that. It's been an on-going battle between him and J.P. Losman. However, as opposed to who is the better player, the competition has been more along the lines of who can get injured more and/or who can throw away more games. Also T.O. loves the big sports media markets. Look at where he has been. San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Dallas...all major sports markets. And now Buffalo? The team that plays 1 game a year in Canada? Buffalo? T.O. went to Buffalo?

Second of all, this now means that twice a year we are going to have the epic battle of Randy Moss vs. Terrell Owens shoved down our throats. ESPN overkill....HELLO! I may just intentionally avoid The Leader the 4 weeks before and the 4 weeks after both of those games.

Third of all, it's a 1-year deal so that means that surely we're going to have more T.O. controversy at the end of this year and the start of next year. And hold on....T.O. actually agreed to a 1-year deal???? With a team that did not make the playoffs last year???

Well, on the plus side of things, at least he is out of the Eagles' schedule...

  1. I'm sure T.O. is going to enjoy the weather up there.
