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.]

Dude, get over yourself. TO tweeting anything is usually news. It's kinda the equivalent of Brittany Spears saying she has a new tattoo in a discreet location.. Love it or hate it, you gotta listen.

Tvegas, well said. The little man takes himself too seriously

Had the Dolphins on My Wish List

Signing Dansby
Signing Marshall

Firing Ginn

Hoping 4 Mike Iupati as Dolphins 1st Pick after trading 4 Brandon Marshall

Really Like 330 LB Blocking Guard
"Big John"& His Humble Upbringing

So Must Say:
Home Is Very Happy with
The Direction The Miami Dolphins are Moving

***** The Dynasty Be Fins! *****

Oh, flack from the T.O. lovers....


the fact is I don't have to listen... thats why I don't have twitter garbage

Dear Mr. Salguero

I had no idea T.O. had any Journalistic value till I recently came accross this....

"TO tweeting anything is usually news,Love it or hate it, you gotta listen"

What is T.O.'s target audiance and age group.

Does he report serious news ?...will he be getting an Anchor job at any of the major networks when he is done with football ?

Will T.O. be the next Ron Burgandy

Soiled :)

Soiled, I think OchoCinqo is gunning for that job.

If I remember correctly the Tuna didn't like "The Player" very much and was pretty much forced to deal with him because of Jones.... Serously doubt the Phins sign this old gas bag...

With "Big John" & "Dirty Richie"
Miami Starting O-Line Averages
over 6.5 & over 320 LBs
of 100% Dolphin Run & Pass Blocking Power

***** The Dynasty Be Fins! *****

Soiled,

I don't know if you've heard, but T.O. is kind of a big deal. He has many leather bound books and his apartment smells of rich mahogany

He can be in the best "shape" of his life. What's in question is not his shape, its his skills. And they have diminished. And he's shown he's not mature enough to deal with the fact he's not elite anymore. He's good but not great. When things don't go his way he tends to lose his mind and that's not what this team needs. He'd be OK to have if he could handle being second fiddle, but he can't.

Miami Dolphins Might Even Be Able To Cover Opposing Teams TEs In 2010

Imagine That!

***** The Dynasty Be Fins! *****

unbelievable the morons who think T.O. coming to this team is a good thing.....

Simply The Bess
Should Earn More RAC Yards with the double coverage on Marshall

Henne Must Learn A Good Pump Fake to go with that

Brian Hartline Will Now
Not Start in 2 Receiver Set

Home Wants Physical Speedster & Heads Up Player
Brian Hartline as KR

Hartline Has Brass Balls

I can't believe I am seeing all these posts wanting TO to come to Miami. He is the last thing this team needs. He has been a cancerous leision for every QB he has played for. That is the last thing a young 2nd year starter at QB needs. We have Marshall who is younger and better than TO. You bring in TO to the mix he is going to be bitter and jealous that he is not getting the ball as much just like he complained about Witten in Dallas. No matter how good TO may or may not be he will be bad for the development of Henne. Say no to TO.

I think its bad news if he comes to the Dolphins but if its true, I wont complain. I mean someone mentioned distractions and I think an offensive distraction is good. It will especially minimize any teams defensive scheme to doubleteam Marshall.

Again...before signing Brandon, I would have taken TO in a heartbeat. If he signs with us, I definitely think it would be an improvement.

He's probably down here to go rollerblading on south beach or something.

And that's the problem with Twitter. Now, communication is only as good as it's weakest link (since we're all in the same boat pretty much). So any idiot that misreads something can make a whole hubbbub about it and get people worked up for nothing.

Twitter is the first step to Hell on Earth. You sheep who follow it are pretty much destroying yourselves.

I love scotch, scotch, scotch, scotch!

carlito he can also teach them how to be a 6 time pro bowler make it to a super bowl..catch 1006 passes for almost 15,000 yards and 147 Td's..third all time in recieving yards & td's.9 1,000 yard seaons five straight..and the only player to score a td on all 32 teams..2 td's on 31

Brandon Marshall Is Ten Years Younger than TO

Home Was Pounding The Table 4 Brandon Marshall Relentlessly Since Last Year

***** The Dynasty Be Fins! *****

DC, excellent use of hubbub.

Twitter Tracker Alert: This just in from Larry King: Chicken tastes good.

Thank heaven for little girls.

Joe McKnight, Jets running back: The fourth-round draft pick out of USC had a rough start at rookie minicamp. McKnight wasn't sure if it was his nerves, the heat or the aggressive pace compared to what he went through with the Trojans, but he struggled to hold onto the ball and his stomach contents. He repeatedly dropped passes in drills, needed extra medical attention, suffered from cramps and generally looked exhausted.

If TO can play TIGHT END I would love to have him ..... but, he doesnt ..... so I prefer sticking with our current corps of receivers, maybe adding Bess' old teammate, mainly as a return man

Tuna + TO = not gonna happen

WELCOME, HOME ........YOUR POSTS ALWYS NICE AND UP BEAT .

I don't want TO near this team. It is very young and very impressionable.

As for those throwing LT under the bus, no one know the facts of the case yet. What were the extenuating circumstances. Can we please let all the facts come out before we mock or crucify the man?

Obviously, he is not a saint, but in America, I thought you were innocent toll proven guilty. Unfortunately, with the TMZ and ESPN 24/7 gossip cycle people convicted before the process begins.

IF TO COMES TO MIAMI ,THE FINS ARE FOR SURE IN THE PLAYOFFS .

GREECE IN REVOLT .

Yeah sure, he probably won't be a Dolphin. But you 'experts' were wrong about Marshall. So, don't fool yourselves into believing you know what Parcells will do. In other words, sit back and let it play out.

TO is probably here for some cafe con leche and pastelitos.

A guy tweets he's coming to south beach , a popular vacation spot and where TO owns a home , during his offseason and THE T.O.. SHEEP start coming out in droves. MY GOD !!! LOL !! Good day folks , see you later , there's nothing here.

Sign him up and make him a TE!!!! He's big enough.... That would be a nightmare matchup for any defense. Just think of all the possibilities. Wow!!!!

And people bash guys like ireland and parcells for asking the personal questions they do in interviews....THanks LT, hopefully ur dire situation now will start to shed more truth to the problems and the ignorance of others* Its more than just a business decision, its an investment in that person and any baggage they might bring with them!!!

I think we do need another WR to compliment Marshall. We need a true burner with great routes and hands.
TO ain't that guy.
Someone mentioned TO as a mentor for Marshall. That's ridiculous. All TO has ever cared about is TO. He's simply not mentoring material.
I think the the only Mentor Marshall needs is Chad Henne. Likewise the only mentor Henne needs is Marshall.

Just say NO to TO!

Agree Pistol
Add Italy to your list also

There also is a growing sense that any collapse of Greece could trigger a wave of defaults across Europe and even the world.

God Bless

I agree,
Theres no amount of money i would want TO for, and i think thats why this guy is out of job still. Also he is about one person (HIMSELF),not a team player as we saw in buffalo last year. His talent doesn't come close to overshadowing his ego------NO THANKS***

Even with Marshall our wr's are below average. No explosive wr's who can get open and make big plays. T.O. even at 37 is leaps and bounds better than a very slow Hartline...Camirillo and Bess. There has to be more to the position than just catching the football for 5 and 6yd completions....(sure hands).

Just say no to T.O.

With T.O. in the fold, that would only make the younger recievers work harder to get playing time, and I think that would be a good thing. Everyone knows that T.O. has had his not so bright moments, but hell, we parden murders for worse things than he has done. That's history, and hopefully he has learned from his mistakes, and gets at least one more shot somewhere. "GO TO"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
