Terrell Owens picks former receivers coach as his presenter
Terrell Owens has selected one of his former receivers coaches to present him at his induction in Canton this summer. George Stewart, Owens’ position coach in San Francisco, will have that honor, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Wednesday.
He knew what to get out of me. He became a father figure to me, Owens said, via quotes distributed by the Hall of Fame.
Osweiler played there from 2012 through 2015, although the 2015 campaign was the only year he saw extensive time, throwing for 1,967 yards, 10 touchdowns and six interceptions.
He signed with the Houston Texans for the 2016 campaign but failed to live up to expectations with 15 touchdown passes and 16 interceptions. Houston traded him to the Cleveland Browns, who cut him before the 2017 season even started, prompting Osweiler to once again sign with Denver.
Tannehill missed the entire 2017 season with a knee injury, so Miami needed some type of insurance policy behind him.
Osweiler is at least familiar with Gase’s system and provides experience, should Tannehill suffer another injury or fail to meet expectations on the field.
Drew Brees has said it. Sean Payton has said it. Mickey Loomis has said it. Brees is, and will continue to be, a Saint.
But here we are, seven weeks and one day removed from his team’s last game of the season and nine days away from the launch of free agency, and Brees still doesn’t have a contract. The Scouting Combine isn’t over yet (it almost is), which means there’s still a chance a contract will be hammered out before Loomis and agent Tom Condon leave Indianapolis.
The two teams that presumably would interest Brees the most are the Vikings and Broncos, if for some reason the Saints can’t or won’t put the kind of offer on the table that either of those teams should rush to compile. And while there’s still no specific reason to envision Brees swapping his fleur-de-lis for some other helmet decal, each passing day without news of a new deal for Drew will make the small chance of a departure slightly bigger.
