Terrell Owens will not sign with New England. Phew.

Yesterday we put up a poll asking if Patriots fans wanted the team to sign Terrell Owens.

Somehow, despite Terell Owens being cut by the Seahawks in about three weeks last year, and not having seen an NFL field in three years, Pats fans responded with a resounding "YES".

The reason TO has been linked to the Pats is because he was seen working out with Tom Brady, which of course had led to some wild speculation. All of that has been put to rest today by the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe.

Boston Herald:
There is nothing cooking between free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens and the Patriots, according to a league source.

Owens does want to keep playing in the NFL and has been in discussion with teams throughout the offseason, but there isn't anything going on with Owens and the Pats at this time.

To that I say, "Thank God."

The Patriots already have on old and slow wide receiver since they signed Michael Jenkins. At least Jenkins can hold on to the ball though, unlike TO.
