Carroll says TO can still play despite being cut

Seattle coach Pete Carroll says that despite the Seahawks’

decision to release Terrell Owens he still believes the 38-year-old

wide receiver can play in the NFL.

Carroll said Monday he has no doubt that Owens can still play

and would be surprised if he didn’t catch on with another team.

Owens was released by the Seahawks on Sunday as they made their

initial round of cuts to reach the 75-man league-mandated roster

limit.

Owens arrived at Seahawks camp in terrific shape and looked good

on the practice field, but couldn’t transfer it to the games. He

had just two catches for 41 yards in two preseason games that were

more notable for his drops.

But Carroll said the team would not rule out looking at Owens

later in the season if needed. Carroll said Owens was great and did

everything asked of him.
