When is it time for Terrel Owens, Randy Moss, and Chad Johnson to retire?  Does any team want them?  Do they have what it takes to be a NFL wide receiver again? Of course not!  They might catch a few balls here and there and may be a good offensive asset on a team, but what they lack is leadership.  Yea they can teach  players how to run a route, how to read coverages, but can they teach you how to be a winner?  HELL NO!  Can they teach players how to conduct themselves on and off the field?  HELL NAH!  Can they lead by example?  HECK NO!  Based on their history, as a NFL team you got to go Whitney Houston and say “HELLS TO THE NO!”

First, all of them need to stay away from social media, reality shows, or just being in the media (making news).  Chad can’t stay away from trouble or twitter. Clearly he tweets about everything else but football.  Would you want that on your hopefully budding franchise?  Then you have Randy who is probably sitting in corner somewhere saying to himself “I’m the best receiver in the league”, yet alligator arms passes in the Super Bowl, and telling people how he pays off fines (“Straight Cash Homie”).  T.O is either bowling, playing softball, basketball, tennis, golf, diving off something, or maybe even playing badmitting for a charity event. With all the headaches and distractions, they have going on it’s no wonder nobody wants them.  Yet they are looking at the league and can’t understand why they don’t have a job.

Who knows what these guys are doing, or what they can bring to the table for a team.  Why would a team waste their time for an older, slower, or average hand receiver.  Remember that the G.O.A.T. Jerry Rice at an extended age led the Raiders to a Super Bowl appearance, but after the Raider stint, he couldn’t find a job as a starter.  Mike Shannahan was on record saying that Jerry would have started for his team if he wasn’t in his 40’s.  Now that is the greatest, and he had no outside issues, and he couldn’t get a job late in his career.  Then these guys have no chance, they might as well retire and move on because majority of teams needs are not a receiver especially an older one.

Either way all of them have question marks about their game and character.  Bringing unwanted attention, destroying locker rooms, or feeling they are above the team.  If they could have just kept their mouths closed, they might still have a job, instead of sitting at home (I bet Randy Moss is smoking a Blunt right now!)  Maybe it would have been different for them if they could have ever got the concept of there’s no “I” in team. Instead of the concept of there’s a “me, me, me”.  The thing that T.O., Moss, and Johnson love the most!

Veteran guys like them you just don’t need!
