NFL: UNEMPLOYED WR Terrell Owens Tweets The Jets That He Is AVAILABLE! 0

Posted on October 09, 2012 by Joe Gill

“Hey Jets! I am AVAILABLE!”

Terrell Owens is UNEMPLOYED.

Terrell Owens is BROKE.

Terrell Owens is DESPERATE.

During the Monday Night football game between the Texans and Jets, T.O. tweeted the following:

The Jets are definitely in need of wide receiver help after Santonio Holmes was lost for the season after an injury against the 49ers.

But how much is Terrell Owens an UPGRADE? He is 38 years old and has not played in the NFL since 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals where he had 72 catches for 938 yards and 9 touchdowns.

He was cut in training camp by the Seattle Seahawks back in August.

Have to give credit to Terrell Owens for thinking outside the box using social media to find a new gig.

      Rusty Staub

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is a former major league baseball player who came into the game as a teenager and stayed until he was in his 40s. In between, Rusty Staub put up a solid career that was primarily spent on expansion or rebuilding teams.

      Originally signed by the Colt .45s at age 17, he made his major league debut as a 19-year old rookie and became only the second player in the modern era to play in more than 150 games as a teenager.

      Though he hit only .224 splitting time between first base and rightfield, Staub did start building a foundation that would turn him into an All-Star by 1967 when he finished fifth in the league with a .333 batting average.
