T.O. signs with Bills after considering offers from 'like, a bunch of teams'

Terrell Owens has selected the Buffalo Bills as the team he will play for in 2009. According to the six-time Pro Bowler and perennial locker room distraction, countless teams had been “banging down the door with contract offers” in the recent days following his release from the Cowboys.

“Everybody thinks because of my past that no one would want me,” said Owens at his Buffalo Bills press conference. “I had like a billion teams that wanted me to play for them, but I chose the Bills because it was the best fit for me, and not because it was my only option besides the Raiders. If you think that I was considering signing with the Raiders for the past couple of days and then the Bills called and I was like ‘holy balls, I had no idea a halfway decent team actually wanted to sign me…hell yeah I’ll take that deal’, then you’re crazy…because that’s not what happened at all.”

The one-year $6.5 million deal with the Bills will give Owens an opportunity to prove that he’s still capable of performing at an elite level at the age of 35 and that he’s able to walk into an NFL locker room without the drama of a pre-teen obsessed with The Hills or something.
