Still better than most Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times There aren't many athletes who could overcome a devastating knee injury this late in a career and come back to make a contribution. Then again, Terrell Owens is a physical freak who has defied long odds before — think of the way he recovered to play in the Super Bowl against the Patriots. Yes, his abilities have been on the decline, but I don't see him ending his career on such a quiet note. While there's always a chance he could retire before the start of the season, I think it's more likely he tries to bounce back in time to hook on in the last quarter of the season with a team making a playoff run. Even at 38, which he'll be then, he'll likely be better than a lot of third or fourth receivers around the league.

Divas still in demand Ron Fritz Baltimore Sun Will Chad Johnson get another shot in the NFL? I hope not. The tired acts of Terrell Owens, Plaxico Burress and Johnson need to be shelved for good. After allegedly assaulting his wife, Johnson should worry more about staying out of jail than trying to get back onto the football field. Are NFL teams really hurting that badly for wide receivers that these divas keep getting chances? Maybe. Randy Moss got his third — or is it fourth?

Terrell Owens didn't play in the NFL in 2011, and the 38-year-old is currently playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. T.O. said Wednesday that there is no question he can still help an NFL team. And he cited the Ravens as a team that proves his point (that sound you hear is the rumor mill beginning to churn). “I know I can play. That's not even a question that I can play. You look at the NFC Championship and the AFC Championship. You look at those games, especially the NFC championship.

It's more than a feeling Nick Fierro, The Morning Call When deciding on Hall of Fame qualifications, sometimes you go on instant feel, sometimes on sheer statistics and sometimes both. In Terrell Owens' case, it's both. From a performance standpoint, the numbers don't lie - 1,002 catches, 14,886 yards and a staggering 143 touchdowns. The TD total is more than recent electees Art Monk and Michael Irvin combined. From a feel standpoint, it's also overwhelming.

NFL Network continues to reveal its list of the top 100 players in the NFL for 2011, which is determined by a player poll. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was voted the NFL’s 90th best player and running back Ray Rice came off the board Sunday as the 56th best. It looks like at least three Ravens should crack the top 50. One of those players will most certainly be safety Ed Reed (Ray Lewis, Haloti Ngata and Terrell Suggs are also contenders). NFL.com recently released a sneak preview of Terrell Owens hyping up Reed for the list , and the outspoken wideout said Reed is one of the best safeties in the game and will be a Hall-of-Famer.

PHILADELPHIA -- The venomous contempt that Philadelphia Eagles fans have for Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens is the type of animosity often reserved for the most vile and hurtful of sins: betrayal. When a local sports talk show offered free tickets to tomorrow's game here to the fan who could be most creative if he had the chance to confront Owens, the vitriol was unbridled. "Maggot," "scumbag" and "malignant tumor" were just a few of the more printable epithets. "If Owens and [Eagles quarterback]

SAN FRANCISCO - As Terrell Owens fights his trade to the Ravens, offering a crash course in what a royal pain he can be, the question is: Is he worth the trouble? Do his talents as a game-breaking receiver offset the many controversies he stimulates? There isn't a clear consensus in the city where he played eight seasons for the 49ers. In a canvass of players, team officials and fans, some believe he is worth the fuss and others think otherwise. "If I had it my way, I would have liked for him to [still]

The pre-game score is Eagles 4, Patriots 1. That's the number of active players on both Super Bowl teams who have been operated on by Dr. Mark Myerson; at least the ones he can remember off the top of his head. Myerson, who's based at Mercy Medical Center, is the country's go-to guy for foot and ankle surgery or consultations. Although athletes represent only a small part of his patient base, dozens have sought him out. They range from Ravens tight end Todd Heap to the NBA's Steve Blake and Grant Hill, although the latter recently denounced Myerson's two operations on his ankle as "a waste of time."

Trio well past prime Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune Signing Terrell Owens gives the Bengals a very good group of wide receivers. But best in the NFL? Maybe Owens, Chad Ochocinco and Antonio Bryant would have formed the best receiving corps two or three years ago, when each was really humming. But T.O. is 36 now, Ochocinco is 32 and Bryant was allowed to leave the Bucs because his knee was in bad shape, and there are indications it still might be a problem.

The Bengals have agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with wide receiver Terrell Owens , who is expected to report to training camp in Georgetown, Ky., in a couple of days, according to various reports. Receiver Chad Ochocinco is one of Owens' close friends, and welcomed him on his Twitter feed. Ochocinco lobbied for the team to sign Owens and has dubbed the two of them Batman and Robin. • Jack Tatum , the Pro Bowl safety for the Raiders best known for his crushing hit that paralyzed Darryl Stingley in a 1978 exhibition game, died of a heart attack in an Oakland, Calif.

Tennessee Football Inc., the company that owns the Titans, filed the lawsuit Monday in Davidson County (Tenn.) Chancery Court against both the university and Kiffin. The lawsuit accuses Southern California and Kiffin of violating Pola's contract that required him to have written permission to discuss a job with anyone other than the Titans.

She was 54. Cowher died Friday in her native North Carolina, where the family relocated at her urging during Cowher's final year as coach in 2006, one season after the Steelers won the Super Bowl. The family had lived in Raleigh since. The Cowhers met at North Carolina State, where Bill played linebacker.

If Terrell Owens has his way, the mercurial Pro Bowl wide receiver will never play for the Ravens. A day after he was traded from the San Francisco 49ers for a second-round draft pick, Owens wrote on his Web site, "I'm a Raven for now, but not for long," and reiterated his desire to play for the Philadelphia Eagles on Fox Sports' Best Damn Sports Show Period. The Ravens, meanwhile, remain firm on keeping Owens despite his repeated protests, and attributed his troubling remarks as a tactic to renegotiate his current contract.

The Ravens completed what could become the signature acquisition of their season yesterday. Filling the biggest void on the team, the Ravens traded their second-round pick in this year's NFL draft to the San Francisco 49ers for former All-Pro receiver Terrell Owens. The deal is contingent on the controversial star's passing a physical, which may be conducted as late as Monday. His Hall of Fame ability transforms the Ravens into legitimate Super Bowl contenders. His infamous antics - from autographing a ball on the field after a touchdown to berating his offensive coordinator on the sideline - raise some concerns.

Bristol is beckoning Kevin Van Valkenburg Baltimore Sun I think I've solved the Terrell Owens issue. I know the perfect franchise for him. His inflated ego will fit right in, and so will his declining skills. It just isn't an NFL team. It's ESPN. Think about it. This is a match made in self-promoting heaven. T.O. isn't an elite NFL wide receiver anymore, but he'd be the perfect fit in Bristol. He could do weekly podcasts with Bill Simmons, corny humor segments with Kenny Mayne and Rick Reilly, a daily shouting contest with Colin Cowherd or Skip Bayless, and he could even give Hannah Storm fashion advice.

It's not a secret that the Ravens are desperate to upgrade their wide receivers this offseason. But are they desperate enough to consider pursuing a 36-year-old Terrell Owens? It depends on whether you think Ravens coach John Harbaugh was speaking candidly or bluffing a bit during his question-and-answer session with reporters Saturday at the NFL scouting combine. Owens is an unrestricted free agent coming off a one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills under which he made $6.5 million.
