At 8:36 a.m. today, Terrell Owens tweeted the following:

"Miami bound..."

And about 10 seconds later I got a bunch of twitter followers asking if this meant Owens is going to sign with the Dolphins. From what I can see, many of Owens' own followers recognized the same possibility and asked him if he's coming to sign.

Ah, the Internet.

Anyway, I cannot confirm for you the specific reason Owens is coming to Miami. He has a place here, I know that. He often trains down here.

But I can confirm for you that T.O. is not coming to join the Dolphins, according to a club source. I think the Dolphins generally like their receiver corps now that Brandon Marshall is part of the group

I wouldn't be necessarily opposed to adding his talent to our roster, but I don't see how that would help the development of our young promising receivers, nor do I see that helping our team chemistry much. He certainly has talent, but he also has a knack for dropping the ball a lot. While the guy still have the physical talent to be a dominant receiver, I question whether or not he still has the drive to live up to his potential.

at this point in Owens career I do not see the need for him? The Fins already have Marshall as the #1 guy.......

not sure if Owens is much of an upgrade over the other WR's on the roster as he has a bad case of the dropsies!(which is why TG got traded)

I don't see the fit, especially when you factor in all the hype that would come along with TO. :boo:

Pro Football Focus compared the different positions in the AFC East and they think our wide receivers are fine as they are. I think adding Owens will hinder the growth of our young receivers.

Red - Priority action needed
Orange - Some problems which need addressing
White - Could use upgrade
Lt Green - Starters good but issues with depth
Green - Confirmed Starters and depth

Plus, I doubt that Tuna would allow "The Player" to come here.

I think we have a deep WR core, we needed that true #1 that will draw attention, we got that in Marshall. Now our other guys can get single coverege and see how things progress.. I expect big things for Hartline. Bess and Camarillo should be improved with that addition...

Owens wont help for more than one season. Lets not turn into the Jests...

I'm with you guys, this one probably won't happen for more reasons than I can count. But if it did go down, what a pair that would be! Yes TO is nearing the end of his career, but with Brandon Marshall drawing all of the double teams he would be wide open all day. It's an interesting idea, too bad it will probably not happen.

Yeah don't think this story has any legs to walk with. Anytime a famous person tweets something people make a big deal out of it. His tweet was just to let ppl know that he was coming down there and to get ready to party or something like that.
