Terrell Owens Released By Seattle Seahawks
Terrell Owens is no longer with the Seattle Seahawks.
The NFL veteran announced on Twitter today that the he was released by the Seahawks.
The Seattle Times reports that teams around the NFL are finalizing their rosters this weekend. The Seahawks have not announced who else has been cut, but Owens, who has more than a million followers on Twitter, announced the news this afternoon.
“I’m no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I’m truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.”
Owens has the second most receiving yards in NFL history. He spent the 2011 season on the sidelines due to an injury and was hoping to make a comeback this year. He signed with the Seahawks during the second week of training camp but at 38-years-old and with a year of rust on his bones he was considered a long shot to make the roster.
It’s unclear if Owens will try to find a new home before the start of the season or if any other teams are willing to give him a chance. Owens, for the moment, is putting his faith in God.
Owens wrote on Twitter: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jer 29:11.”
