The latest team to contact WR Terrell Owens? The New York Jets. Filed this to ESPN.com: http://is.gd/dM7ur

In the article posted, Schefter goes on to say:

The Jets have contacted Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and have debated the idea of bringing the high-profile wide receiver to training camp.

A deal between the Jets and Owens still is considered a longshot; one person estimated the Jets' chances at signing the high-profile wide receiver at "20 percent."

I just can't see it, sure we need someone to step in for the first four games, but are we willing to sign Owens with that knowledge. Would we cut him after that, because he's not getting snaps over Edwards/Holmes or Cotchery. The last thing we need to give Sanchez is a disgruntled Owens, who will not hesitate to make a spectacle.

Bold favors the brave, but not in this case. I think it was exploratory, and we all know Mike leaves no stone unturned but I would be surprised if we signed him. It doesn't make sense to me to give a QB a wide receiver who's effort on the field is questioned. We don't need Owens at all. Our receiving core is one of the better ones in the league, we can mange 4 games with Edwards/Cotchery/Keller/Allison/Clowney.
