Owens sets off Dolfan frenzy with tweet

At 8:36 a.m. today, Terrell Owens tweeted the following:

"Miami bound..."

And about 10 seconds later I got a bunch of twitter followers asking if this meant Owens is going to sign with the Dolphins. From what I can see, many of Owens' own followers recognized the same possibility and asked him if he's coming to sign.

Ah, the Internet.

Anyway, I cannot confirm for you the specific reason Owens is coming to Miami. He has a place here, I know that. He often trains down here.

But I can confirm for you that T.O. is not coming to join the Dolphins, according to a club source. I think the Dolphins generally like their receiver corps now that Brandon Marshall is part of the group. And I do not see them currently adding anyone who is 36 years old and will be 37 during the season, regardless of whether he has gas in the tank or not.

Simply, I think the Dolphins don't need someone to take catches away from Marshall and Owens might either do that or be unhappy that he's not seeing enough passes his way.

Having said that, I do think Owens still can be a solid contributor for some team in the right situation.

But do I think he's "miami bound," to make the Dolphins that team and that situation?

Nope.

[Update: Owens was asked by one of his followers if he meant he's headed for Miami or the team and he replied, "city." So that should be that.]

Roger that.... Bossanova.... Not my chair not my problem....

Oh rodge, go lie down and do some life therapy on some poor unfortunate soul, will ya****

Look at Mr. Fin hands....

ahhh thank you Rodge finally a Marlin fan I thought they were extinct!

ALoco, come out and plaaay....

why NY????I dont like the yanks or mets, but ur right i aint a marlin fan either, and not a lot of ppl in florida are either in regards to the crowds they have***thanks for the offer but i'll pass!!!

Ok superphinfan. Then maybe you should lay down and blah blah blah. Thanks fir nothing, Go Marlins...

I don't know much about baseball but I support all Miami teams go Marlins!

Signing T.O should be a no Brainer... Do we win more games next season with Marshall and T.O ? No doubt about it !!!!! This is not the same old T.O who caused problems in San Fran,Philly & Dallas. This is the T.O who is still in great shape and played for the Bills last season who had no QB. and still put up better numbers than any of our boys. And didnt cause any problems.. I think he would come in and help us out more than most of the doubters on this blog think . Marshall is our only threat and will be double teamed every time its 3rd and long because nobody is worried about our other average receivers who are # 3 guys at best... Wish Bill and Jeff would consider it.. T.O has never been so humble and wants to win a superbowl just like us...

TO can be a great player when properly managed but Miami already has a great WR in Marshall and a group of talented young receivers who need the touches to compete with each other and provide strength long term. Adding TO would be a development retarder for our young receivers.

B.Marsh's new # will be 81 in honor of OJ! Best WR since.... No dissrespect to the current core.....Haynos.... Get paid....

Better miami team?sign T.O.JUST DO IT

T.O. will teach Miami Dolphins receivers how to drop the ball, complain when you don't get the ball, fake cry at press conference, turn on the qb, be a locker room caner, and sit ups in the driveway!!!

Are you people crazy?? There is already 2 many receivers on the roster... most of which are young and talented! Can you imagine the type of complaining T.O. would come up with for not getting the ball because its going to Marshall, Ronnie, Ricky, Hartline, or Bess???? LOL.... Tuna is not touching this past his prime, self-centered cancer

Owens Schhmowens...we don't need that guy, we good enough. Now if u said Andre Johnson...I would say add him!
Owens = Owned, he's g a y

Philm...check your resources man, Terrell (got) Owned did cause issues in Buff.
