Default ESPN Rumor Terrell Owens to Bears?

Craig Kanalley on 10.13.09


The hottest NFL rumor this morning involves the Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens.

The origin actually appears to be ESPN's NFL Rumors page and the idea has gathered plenty of steam since, appearing on multiple blogs, Twitter, and elsewhere.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said it makes sense for Buffalo to consider trading T.O. now that it's fallen to 1-4 after an ugly 6-3 home loss to the Cleveland Browns. Now is the chance for the team to get something in return by dealing him to a contender.

Two "overinflated heads" in one locker room. They could blame each other for their failures on the field.

Ehhh... Hope not, he would be a major upgrade in Chicago for this season. I like the thought of our pick being in the teens.


Next year he would probably implode the team.

I would think so as well, except that would give Cutler a Target to force the ball to. He's played better as a manager these past few games, a TO ratio might just put Cutler back into throw into coverage mode.

I'd rather them not get the talent though. I could care less about the future of Cutler or the Bears, but I want them to crash and burn this season.

That would be hysterical.

Would Chicago actually sell their souls TWICE in one season?

TO is terrible this year. He has aged out and has more interest in his reality show. Send him there and watch the implosion.

Yeah, I just hate the thought of him having another Brandon Marshall to throw to... At this point it's just a rumor, hope it doesn't materialize.

Reasons to trade TO: save $4-plus million and get back a draft pick for player in last year of deal who can walk away after season for zip.


4 minutes ago from UberTwitter RT @jrpaar You got everyone in Buffalo thinking TO is going to be traded. <---Let me repeat: I don't expect them to trade him but should.

I would have thought that the Bears would have got involved in the Braylon Edwards action.

T.O. would just be train wreck.

That is true, but not so much for the Bills this year.

They probably wanted to but after giving up two 1sts and a starting QB they have nothing left to deal with.

I still can't believe they gave us 2 1STs, a 5th and our new franchise QB for Cutler.

Orton, 2 #1's, and a 3rd

Cutler and a 5th (Johnny Knox)

Until TO blows an assignment that causes an INT. Cutler blames TO in the media. TO complains about a bad pass. Then TO complains that he isn't getting the ball enough, so Cutler continues to throw into triple and quadruple coverage. Meanwhile the INTs mount up. Bears morale and work ethic does down, and they're stuck in 6-10 limbo.

That might be the most valuable part of the deal we gave up.

Know has really light it up, both receiving and returning.
