When receiver Terrell Owens began to indicate that he’s interested in playing football again, the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos moved quickly to call dibs on him, adding T.O. to their negotiating list. Apparently, T.O. is now interested.
According to 3downnation.com, Owens has invoked the 10-day clause that gives the Eskimos a window to offer him a deal or to release his rights. Owens made the request on July 14.
Agent Jason Staroszik reportedly is handling the matter on Owens’ behalf.
For his part, Young has wasted no time embracing his new city. He said he’s looking forward to attending his first NFL game by checking out the Falcons, and planning to drop by a Braves game as well. And he’s already friends with the city’s currently most celebrated sons, the rap trio Migos, whom he met at a concert in Oklahoma City. When he found out Young was heading to Atlanta, Migos member Quavo sent a congratulatory text to the point guard who has said he believes he is the best player in this draft. Now Hawks fans will hope Young walks it like he talks it.
Unfortunately, he made some bad decisions this past season or whenever he did it. I don’t know exactly when that was. But I still love him. If you’re ever around him, you’ll understand what I mean. There’s not a better team player, a guy who works as much as [anyone].
But he made he made a mistake, and obviously he’ll pay the consequences for that, and we’ll move on.
Green Bay signaled their most important area for improvement in their top two draft picks—cornerback Jaire Alexander in the first round and cornerback Josh Jackson in the second. By drafting two highly-touted cornerback prospects, there’s a better chance that one of them will pan out. Green Bay also signed veterans Tramon Williams and Davon House to round out the depth in the secondary. This is an area the Packers have to get right if they want to maximize Aaron Rodgers’s championship window.
A healthy Aaron Rodgers with a new weapon in Jimmy Graham should lead the Packers return to their usual playoff berth.
