"I'm no longer a Seahawk. I thank the organization for the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief." - @TerrellOwens via Twitter
At approximately 11:00 (PT) Terrell Owens tweeted the news about his release from the Seattle Seahawks' roster.
In what was possibly his last run in the NFL, Terrell had nothing more than an average performance throughout the 2012 preseason.
In his two exhibition games on the Seahawks' roster, Terrell had two catches for 41 yards. He had one notable drop in the preseason opener on a perfectly placed deep ball from Matt Flynn that slipped through his fingers. He was targeted multiple times in both games but was unable to come away with many receptions.
His production wasn't enough to catch a break with Pete Carroll, perhaps this was his last hurrah in the league that's Not For Long.
There might not be another team interested in T.O. as this 38-year-old veteran has reached the twilight of his career. In his time spent with the Seattle Seahawks he wasn't able to prove that he can make a play when it's most important with his hands.
His speed and athleticism are up to par, however he hasn't been reliable.
The key in having a veteran on the roster is to ensure reliability and T.O. hasn't proven that he can be a 'go-to' type of a receiver. With no reliability, there's no true value.
While T.O. doesn't seem very shaken by being cut, as he released the news himself on Twitter, it's very possible that this might be the last we see of his football career on the NFL platform.
