The New England Patriots’ wide receiver corps has been ravaged by injuries this season, and Terrell Owens obviously thinks he could lend a hand or two.

The 41-year-old wide receiver hasn’t played an NFL game in five years, but that didn’t stop Owens from reposting a photo on Instagram from a Patriots fan account that called for New England to sign him.

Just last week, Owens raised the possibility of playing for the Patriots, telling the Boston Globe: "Am I capable of playing? Absolutely."

T.O. told Sports Illustrated in January that he hasn’t retired and that he’s been training with NFL players in an attempt at a comeback. Owens, who spent most of his 15-year career with the San Francisco 49ers, played his last NFL game on Dec. 19, 2010, for the Cincinnati Bengals.
