Renton, WA (Sports Network) - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Terrell Owens
spoke with the media on Wednesday after his first practice as a member of the
"It was good. A little rusty, but just glad to be out here and grateful for
the opportunity that the Seahawks have given me," said Owens after agreeing to
a one-year deal with Seattle on Monday.
The 38-year-old, who spent last season with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor
Football League, spoke of the humbling experience that came from his two-year
hiatus from the NFL.
"A lot of people don't expect me to use that word humble, but there's been a
lot of moments within the last two years that have had me to face and use that
word," remarked Owens.
The six-time Pro Bowler also acknowledged the fact that he will not be handed
a starting role, saying, "I have to earn my spot on this team like everyone
else, I understand that, and I just have to take it one step at a time."
Owens, a 15-year veteran, will get his first shot to prove his worth in game
action on Saturday as the Seahawks open preseason play with a matchup against
the Tennessee Titans.
