There was no drama, only a self-proclaimed “humble” Owens, in shape and focused on playing in the league again for the first time since 2010.

“I think a lot of people don't probably expect me to use that word, ‘humble,’ ” he said after his first workout with the Seattle Seahawks. “But again, there has been a lot of moments within the last two years that have had me face, and say, that word.”

“It's all about, for me, now, being a part of something rather than being the center of something,” Owens said. “And I understand. Obviously, a lot of the media is here because of me, and again, I've changed in a lot of ways in a lot of things that have occurred in the last two years.”
