Terrell Owens and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, sources have told FOXSports.com. The deal, which has not been signed, comes on the heels of the veteran receiver’s impressive workout with the club earlier Monday.
The Associated Press later reported Monday that the Seahawks confirmed the agreement, though it did not divulge the length of the deal.
Owens, a 15-year veteran, is one of the most productive receivers in NFL history. He sits second all-time in receiving yards (15,934) and touchdowns (153), and sixth in receptions (1,078). His nine seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving and 13 years with at least 50 catches rank third. His total receptions are sixth on the NFL career list.
After surgery on his left knee, Owens didn’t receive any offers to play last season. He did play in eight games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League this spring, but he was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.
After spending his first eight seasons with San Francisco, Owens played the next seven with four teams. He last played in 2010 with Cincinnati. He had 72 catches for 983 yards and nine TDs that season.
His last 1,000-yard season was in 2008 with Dallas.
The Seahawks were 7-9 in 2011 and beefed up their quarterback corps this offseason with free-agent Matt Flynn and third-round pick Russell Wilson.
The Seahawks also brought in veteran receiver Antonio Bryant this offseason, but he was cut late last week. Seattle also signed Braylon Edwards, who played sparingly in 2011 with San Francisco.
Seattle is seeking both insurance and a complement for Sidney Rice, who had surgery on both shoulders in the offseason and concussion issues last season. He is being held out of contact drills during training camp as the Seahawks try to get him to the start of the regular season healthy.
Owens could be on the practice field Tuesday morning when the Seahawks return from their off day.
