Free-agent wide receiver Terrell Owens is letting it be known on his Twitter page that he would like to return to the 49ers.
Owens tweeted to former Bills teammate Donte Whitner:
“@DonteWhitner Let em kno if they need me, I’m ready homie!! I’m ready 2 take em deep!!” Whitner responded via Twitter, “@terrellowens I know u are! And I’m ready to Vouch for and let everyone kno how GREAT of a teamate u were in buffalo!”
In the offseason, Owens had ACL surgery and had a workout this fall that no scouts attended. He has been hounded for child support payments recently and is desperate to get back into the league. There has been speculation that he might latch on with a playoff team that needs a wide receiver.
