Would you take T.O. on the Dolphins?
And if you've seen the Burger King commercials, you know that T.O.'s agent is Drew Rosenhaus, who resides in Miami Beach and has close connections to the Dolphins. I know that Rosenhaus would have loved to get Owens on the Dolphins.
I also know the Dolphins looked at the situation seriously before bowing out.
"We certainly evaluated him," coach Nick Saban said. "We think he’s an outstanding player, but the business decision part of it was not in the cards for us.”
Translation: T.O. cost too much money.
But it says here the Dallas Cowboys, following their experience with Owens this year, may part ways with the guy. At that point, Owens likely would not be sooo expensive because he would then be a three-time and three-team loser (SF, Philly, Dallas).
So would you, as Dolphins fans, like to see Owens on the Dolphins for cheap?
Please remember that your best option now if either Marty Booker or Chris Chambers get hurt is ... yikes. Inexperience in Derek Hagan. Unproven quality in Cliff Russell.
The Dolphins clearly are worried about the WR position. That is the reason they've worked out guys such as Tyrone Calico, Craphonso Thorpe, Charles Rogers and others.
So would you take T.O., knowing everything you know about him, if the price were right?
Personally, I'd take him. But I wish he was a complete left tackle more than a WR.
