It was just announced that Terrell Owens who was released just a few days ago has agreed to a deal with the Buffalo Bills for 6.5 million dollars. It is a one year contract that was announced in a press conference that the Bills had at 6:15 eastern time. The Cowboys, who released T.O. to help with team unity, took a big hit to their salary cap when they released Owens, approximately 9 million dollars. There had been rumors about different places that he might end up, but in all honesty Buffalo was not my guess.
T.O. had 69 catches for 1,052 yards and 10 Touchdowns last season. Lee Evans was the Bills leading receiver last year with 63 catches for 1,017 yards and 3 TDs. He should be able to do even better this year with Owens there to draw more of the defensive attention. This should also help Trent Edwards with only one full year as a starter under his belt, that is of course assuming that T.O. doesn’t get too frustrated with him which we can’t rule out.
The Bills were 22nd in passing offense last year. That should change this year.
