Ravens’ Marcus Peters wants to see HOF Terrell Owens back in the NFL
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters is up for a challenge this season, and that could feature a delectable matchup against a Hall-of-Fame wideout.
Peters is currently rehabbing a torn ACL but should be fit to start the 2022 season. The veteran corner has been busy getting back into elite shape but also has used his free time to endorse a famous wide receiver: Terrell Owens.
In an interview with fuboSports, Peters backed the Hall of Famer to return to football and said he hopes Owens can find a team this season.
Peters specifically said that he was “spitting facts” and that “T.O. ready to play ball,” sending a clear message to all 32 teams in the league to take a second look at Owens.
Peters noted that Owens’ passion, leadership, and skills make him ready to re-enter professional football despite being 48 years old — while Owens may be an easy target for several NFL teams, we certainly hope the Ravens don’t take a chance on him.
Baltimore Ravens are happy to pass on wide receiver Terrell Owens
In Owens’ 15 years in the league, he racked up 1,078 catches for 15,934 receiving yards and 153 touchdowns, but his best and most productive seasons arguably came and went two decades ago.
Back when Owens was on the San Francisco 49ers, he was stringing together 1,000-plus yard seasons like it was a piece of cake, but now he’s 12 years removed from his last career game and simply can’t be as effective against younger and more talented players.
Peters can talk all he wants about Owens deserving another shot in the NFL, but even he knows it’s a long shot, and it’s one the Ravens definitely won’t bite at.
Heading into 2022, Baltimore has one of the weaker receiver corps in the league with Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche, and they may yet sign a veteran by the end of the offseason.
Will Fuller, DeSean Jackson, and T.Y. Hilton are some names to keep an eye on, but Terrell Owens should not be included in the list.
The Ravens’ offense isn’t that desperate to add a vet, and Owens is better off finding a home elsewhere. Perhaps on his former team, the Cincinnati Bengals?
