BOSTON (CBS SPORTS) – The Patriots are in desperate need of experienced wide receivers, and Terrell Owens, who last played in a regular-season game in 2010, desperately wants back in the league. So, it stands to reason that T.O. would make a case for the Patriots giving him another chance at NFL redemption.

“Obviously the situation with the Patriots, they are starting out with a lot of new guys,” Owens told the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn. “You never know how management is thinking, what their process is as far as bringing in veterans.”

“I understand they may look at my age as an issue but I’m not your average 39-year-old,” Owens added. “I think if you watch me work out, I’m not really concerned about injuries or anything like that. Plus, I’ll be getting paid the vet minimum, so it’s not like I am asking for any extra incentive in my contract.”

Owens is right. Compared to other 39-year-olds, he’s a freak of nature. But that still doesn’t translate in a league where the average career is less than five years.
