07:31 AM ET 07.15 | T.O. upped the ante by lowering his fee, at lease for the right opportunity. Owens told WJMN radio Wednesday that he'd "definitely be open" to joining the Patriots. The Patriots haven't said anything or hinted at all about signing the controversial wide-out, but he could be a viable option especially with Wes Welker's uncertain return timetable following knee surgery. Here's the best part: T.O. is willing to catch passes in Foxboro at a discounted rate, proving he's willing to take less money in order to have a chance to win -- kind of like that LeBron James fellow. "I'm like LeBron," he said. "I can go there and take less of a role, take less money and put everything aside and make it work."

I could see this but they watched him destroy the team chemistry of Philly, first hand.

I see. By comparison, you can hire a high class lady who arrives in a limo or you can drive around and get one off the street corner.

TO seems to be leaning against the lamp post now.

The FN staffers would have a field day, every day.

Yeah... makes a little sense depth wise.

And - G-Men have sufficient leadership to insure his potential crap would be nipped quickly.

Him and Moss would kill eachother.

July 15, 2010  08:15 AM ET

Yes, seems that is exactly what I said this morning

July 15, 2010  08:18 AM ET

TO could not do Welker's job. I'd rather have half a Welker than 2 TOs.

McDonalds is taking applications.

Tough job market eh T.O.? Has he started begging yet? Or do we wait until he says that the Lions would be a good first?

Nah.... I think T.O. would be a good fit with the Giants, as someone stated, yesterday.

I don't believe the Mara family would allow that to happen.

"I'm like LeBron," he said. "I can go there and take less of a role, take less money and put everything aside and make it work."

So ... by "less of a role" does that mean that he'll do a partial implosion for the team? Maybe he should just offer to pay a team to play.

What a ridiculous comment by T.O. At least Lebron can score points. T.O. needs to leave the building - PERMANENTLY!

"T.O. upped the ante by lowering his fee, at lease for the right opportunity. "

Great grammar, FN. "At lease" your punctuation is correct.

I don't either. There are certain organizations that have little tolerance for TO's crap - the Mara's are one.

July 15, 2010  08:44 AM ET

never happen

If the Pats want to continue to get younger, WR would be an important position to start.Thus this probably wouldn't be a good idea.Moss is already wanting out of town, or a new contract, so he too won't probably be there past next season.

If Moss plays this year like he played in that last game against the Ravens he might find himself out looking for a job too

How many miles per year do you get on a TO lease?
