It’s obvious the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not be utilizing Brown’s services indefinitely, which brought fans, once again, to the idea that a replacement is needed. Every name under the sun has been thrown out there in Social Media Land, from Larry Fitzgerald to Calvin “Megatron: Johnson to even Julian Edleman. I say, “Nay!” — Although, I would not mind the prospect of Larry Fitz.
Ever since Tom Brady joined the Bucs in 2020, the team’s lure has been dangling, tantalizing to many cats in the NFL world. Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, and Leonard Forunette all bit down and won the prize. This year, Giovani Bernard was drawn to the team like a moth to the flame, and recently Le’Veon Bell has joined up with the team to take a final shot at winning a ring.
Recently, a Hall of Fame wide receiver made a sales pitch during his “Getcha Popcorn Ready” podcast to join Tom Brady and the Buccaneers for their playoff run to the Super Bowl.
Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens let it be known that he is more than capable of returning to the NFL:
“At the end of the day, I know that I can do it. When you think about this country and what it’s based off of, we are supposed to be a country of second, third, whatever chances. Look at the chances AB had. Who’s to say that I can’t go out there and do it?” He also stated that he had been working out this entire season due to an unnamed NFL team owner saying that he should be prepared.
According to Owens, he had reached out to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and made his case to play for the team. As far-fetched as it sounds, a retired, even a Hall of Fame inductee, may return to the field of play. There is no rule written that would keep Terrell Owens from returning to the NFL as a player. It is unlikely that the Buccaneers would bring the Hall of Fame receiver in as they run through the playoffs. As fun as it sounds, we just do not need him. But hey, crazier stuff has happened.
