Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason believes that Terrell Owens could still be a factor on a contending team.
Whether or not he wants him to join the Ravens remains to be seen, but he did also say that Owens got a bum wrap for the Buffalo Bills’ 2009 season.
“Sometimes, the perception becomes reality and it’s not fair,” Mason said in a recent Sporting News interview, via Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun. “Looking at him, you can see he’s in great shape, that he can still fare well and produce numbers. But now he’s been treated like a scapegoat for what happened in Buffalo; it’s unfair. After a while, right or wrong, there are just some teams that don’t want to deal with a potential headache. He can be still an asset for some contending team.”
The most recent Owens rumor has the Seattle Seahawks interested in acquiring his services. They aren’t expected to be a contender, but there is little doubt the 36-year-old could make a difference for Pete Carroll and company.
