Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb has encouraged the team’s coaching staff to consider signing free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens, despite the acrimony that marked their time as Philadelphia Eagles teammates, according to multiple sources.
Coach Mike Shanahan told ESPN’s Ed Werder that the Redskins are not actively pursuing Owens. A team source said the Redskins have made upgrading their wide receiver position a high priority, but prefer to avoid bringing Owens to their locker room if another solution can be found.
A source close to McNabb told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that McNabb and Owens recently talked about the possibility of reuniting while recently shooting an episode for a television show in Los Angeles. The “Pros v. Joes” episode features McNabb and T.O. playing together on the same basketball team. The episode is scheduled to air on Spike in July.
Oh man, let the speculation begin. I said McNabb wouldn’t come here, and now look.
