Terrell Owens works out, but no NFL teams show up

Remember last week when super agent Drew Rosenhaus declared free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens “100 % healthy & ready to play right now”?

And how about earlier this month when T.O. said he had already recovered from ACL surgery in April and that teams “know what you gonna get” should they chose to sign the 38 37-year-old?

Well, apparently NFL teams missed the memo — or simply chose to ignore it.

Owens was eager to back up his talk on Tuesday at a private workout at Calabasas High School in Calabasas, Ca. There was just one problem: no NFL team representatives showed up.

The NFL Network’s Linsday Soto was one of the few in attendance for Owens’ workout and reported that no teams were on the sidelines with her. Not even the wide-receiver-starved Tennessee Titans or Washington Redskins.

Owens ran routes, catching passes from former Norfolk State quarterback Casey Hansen, but decided not to run the 40-yard dash. He showed up in a T-shirt with “I am” written on the front and “ready” on the back — but in typical T.O. fashion, the shirt didn’t stay on his body for long.

Despite the no-shows, Owens told the NFL Network he was not discouraged.

“I only need one team. I only need one chance.”
