Terrell Owens to New York Jets not happening

Terrell Owens to the Jets seems like it would be a match made in heaven, but the Jets reportedly have no interest

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Terrell Owens is looking for a job and the New York Jets are thin on receivers, but the two making a connection seems unlikely.

Rex Ryan said "never say never" to signing Owens after Monday's 23-17 loss to the Texans, but New York Daily News columnist Gary Myers tweeted differently.

New York's top receiver Monday was Jeremy Kerley, who hauled in five passes for 94 yards. Jeff Cumberland picked up 51 yards on two catches, including a touchdown.

Owens signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks on Aug. 6. He was cut 20 days later.

Owens has played in 219 games over 15 years in the NFL. He last played with Cincinnati in 2010 before a six-month stint with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League in 2011.
