Can you spell Scott Pioli without using a T or an O? No you can't, so with every passing day T.O. goes without a contract I think perhaps we might be the landing spot of T.O. After all, Scott Pioli brought a certain Randy Moss to the New England Patriots and transformed him from an overpaid loudmouth selfish jerk into a still overpaid, somewhat humble, consistant wide receiver. Could this story play out again in Kansas City with the likes of the one and only Terrell Owens?
After the jump a reminder of the Randy Moss deal and a little T.O. bio.
April 29, 2007...."The New England Patriots acquired veteran wide receiver Randy Moss from the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a fourth-round selection in the 2007 NFL Draft (110th overall). New England acquired the 110th overall selection from the San Francisco 49ers on April 28 along with the 49ers' 2008 first-round selection in exchange for a 2007 first-round selection.
Moss, 30, is a veteran of nine NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings (1998-2004) and Oakland Raiders (2005-2006). The 6-foot-4-inch, 210-pound wide receiver has played in 138 career games with 132 starts and has caught 676 passes for 10,700 yards (15.8 average) and 101 touchdowns. Moss is one of seven players in NFL history to record more than 100 receiving touchdowns and is one of 27 players in the league with more than 10,000 receiving yards. His 101 career receiving touchdowns rank fifth on the NFL's all-time list, his 10,700 career receiving yards rank 21st and his 676 career receptions rank 29th. Moss has recorded seven seasons with 1,000 or more receiving yards and has caught 10 or more touchdown passes in 6 seasons."
Now alittle info a Terrell Owens. Perhaps you have heard about him, but here are his stats:
Terrell Owens, 36, is a veteran of fifteen NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, and San Francisco 49ers. The 6-foot-3-inch, 224-pound wide receiver has played in 205 career games and has caught 1,006 passes for 14,951 yards (average of 14.9 yards/reception) and a career total of 144 touchdowns. T.O. averages 72.9 yards per game and he has only fumbled the ball 10-times in his career. Most recently Terrell Owens played 16-games in the 2009 season with Buffalo where he had 55-receptions for 829-yards (15.1 average) and 5 touchdowns.
Now if the price was right would Scott Pioli pull the trigger and bring Terrell Owens to the Kansas City Chiefs for his 16th season in the NFL? Now that we don't have Larry Johnson on our team would we be able to handle Terrell Owens? What would be the right price? Would T.O.'s presense on the field provide greater opportunity for Dwayne Bowe and Chris Chambers to be open? What are your thoughts when recalling Scott Pioli bringing Randy Moss to the Patriots?
