Terrell Owens is using his latest media tour to not only promote his reality show, but to remind NFL teams that he’s still available.
The latest team Owens declared fit for his services? The New England Patriots.
The 36-year-old outspoken wide receiver told WJMN radio that he’d “definitely be open” to playing for the Patriots, per Christopher Price at WEEI.com.
Owens also reiterated that the public has a misconception of him and that it’s not all about the money and how many passes are thrown his way.
He is open to taking a smaller roll with a smaller paycheck with a team that has the potential to win a championship.
“People think that they have that perception about me,” Owens said. “What receiver that’s out there that’s had great stats, great careers that didn’t want the ball? I’m no different… But of course — I mean, you’ve got Brady there. You’ve got the great mind, coach Belichick.
“I’m like LeBron. I can go there and take less of a role, take less money and put everything aside and make it work.”
One place he won’t try to make it work is Kansas City. In a radio interview earlier this week Owens stated he’s still sour on Chiefs coach Todd Haley after their time together with the Dallas Cowboys.
