Terrell Owens knows an opportunity when he sees one.
With the New York Jets struggling on national TV Monday night, the one-time great, but now unemployed, NFL receiver Terrell Owens picked up his phone and tweeted out a message to Coach Rex Ryan and company:
"Hey JETS!!! I'm available! I'm ready, willing & able! Call my agent& let's make it happen."
Owens does have a point. The Jets do need some help in the receiving department, particularly with star Santonio Holmes on season-ending injured reserve. And there were several dropped passes during the team's 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans that night.
But is Owens the guy they need? He's one of the all-time best at his position but has not played in a game in more than a season. He was signed by the Seattle Seahawks during the off-season but was cut before the regular season.
