07:26 AM ET 07.14 | Terrell Owens believes he's being treated unfairly. In reality, Owens says, he proved in Buffalo that he can go through a season without causing his team any headaches. Of course, it could be that teams are staying away from Owens less because he'll be a distraction and more because he's a 36-year-old coming off a mediocre season. That's not how Owens sees it, though. "I feel like I have enough talent to be a starter on any team," he said. "That's what's so frustrating."

Just way too much baggage on top of a diminishing skill set - he doesn't get it.

TO spent years shamelessly seeking the media spotlight, and look what it did to him. He went from all-time great player to all-time bad caricature in no time flat.

His time in Buffalo was quiet, but all that proves is that even TO can't generate any media interest in Buffalo.

You went through 1 season with Philly and did not cause trouble. It is always the second year. Ask Dallas.

Otis you correct too much baggage for an older NFL player.

I'm still waiting for Drew Rosenhaus to try convincing everyone there are actually teams interested in the guy.

Maybe once training camp starts...

"I feel like I have enough talent to be a starter on any team,*" he said. "That's what's so frustrating."

He forgot to finish the quote with "*in the Arena Football League".

Wait until 2011 and you can be a lockout scab, TO.

Have you done "Dancing with the Stars" yet? Maybe you can get a job cleaning oil off seagulls?

He also thought taking a bottle of pain killers was a good idea. Then again, that idea had merit.

July 14, 2010  08:24 AM ET

he's still complaining! speak with your actions, not your words TO.

We should take a minute to cherish this, it's possible that we are approaching the last TO thread ever

This is humorous. The T.O bashing. Not fully understood by me. The media created him and he played it up. Funny how fans defend actions/players when they are on their team........

The guy is a moron. He says he kept quiet last year but now complains about it. Anyone who signs him has to have a week to week contract with him, or league minimum with 2 million bonus if he's on the roster for the whole year. It is the only way to shut him up.

I for one have nothing against TO, in fact I found several of his antics to be quite humorous. But let's face facts, at 36 a WR is pretty much past his expiration date, and TO hasn't made a lot of friends in management

"I feel like I have enough talent to be a starter on any team ..."

How's about the national Russian Roulette team?

July 14, 2010  08:36 AM ET

doesn't even matter about his mouth, he just doesn't produce anymore. don't get me wrong, Buffalo isn't exactly receiver heaven, but TO still tied for 4th in dropped balls

He'd drop the gun!

Simply BEAUTIFUL and so appropriate! TO is so in love with himself and so useless to any professional football team that it would be supremely nice if that MORON would go away, never to be heard from again.

That's possible..................................naaah.................I think we have to wait for the publication of his autobiography: "Just Shut Up, Play Ball & Support Your Team!"

What happened to all of the teams he said his agents were in contact with a few months ago?

They found out that the USFL folded in 1984.
