Terrell Owens gets a glowing recommendation from Pete Carroll

“Anybody that thinks he had an attitude around here or something like that got in the way is wrong,” Carroll said (via NFL.com). “They don't know what they're talking about. This guy was great. He did everything we wanted him to do. He practiced hard, he studied hard, he asked questions, he worked hard in the games. He did everything. He was terrific.”

T.O. signed with the Seahawks less than a month ago and Carroll was happy enough with what he saw — despite a couple of drops, he was able to get free from defenders — to give him a glowing recommendation.

“He's got the competitive makeup to do it. He's physically beautifully fit for a guy of his years, and I'll be surprised if he doesn't wind up in somebody's camp and playing for somebody,” he said.

But whom? The New York Jets reportedly have no interest. The Miami Dolphins, fresh from a failed dalliance with Chad Johnson, are “probably not” interested in Owens, General Manager Jeff Ireland said.

Who knows? Maybe T.O. will end up back with the Seahawks. Carroll said he “wouldn't hesitate” to bring Owens back later in the season.
