I thought the organization made a point by drafting many WRs... I don't see them signing T.O. to a one year.
But the front office is becoming a little more open minded to making moves like this. I hope not.

so I guess credible sources no longer exist...
Is it your own credible source?

it would be awesome if we could sign him with a clause that says if he causes any trouble in the locker-room whatsoever, that he gets automatically cut, with no pay gaunteed. of course he wouldnt sign something like that though

I'd say 1 year him, as long as foxy can make him understand that the diva attitude is checked at the door.

Terrell E. Owens will NEVER, EVER, NEVER be a Carolina Panther. Ever, in or after life, infinity...

Jarrett is not going to be a safety valve by no means, neither will any other WR. Smitty will get doubled more often than not. The TEs are okay but are not "go to" like a Clark or Witten. And while Williams and Stewart can catch out of the backfield, it's best if the majority of their touches came more from running the ball and not a 50/50 split like Westbrook endured in Philly with McNabb.
Even if TO doesn't score a lot of TDs or gain a lot of yards, having a safety valve for Moore/Clausen is very valuable. Or it could be like another poster suggested and Smitty ends up not getting doubled all the time and it opens him up to be the safety valve, which is an even better situation.
And as much as I hate the guy, he wasn't a problem in Buffalo last season. IMO, it was because the QB's weren't Garcia or McNabb or Romo. Moore and Clausen don't have the ego or standing yet to get into TO's way. Now Smith is a different story.
It really is a wash with the pros and cons.

Well, we are not on a Super Bowl or even a playoffs push at this moment.
Disagree we are winning the Super Bowl.

T.O. has had many issues in the past but this league is not based on your personal life, if that was the case then Ben Rothlisberger, Michael Vick, Ray Lewis, Marshawn Lynch, Chad Ochocinco, and many others would not have a job. Terrell Owens is a hell of an athlete and can still play ball. He is a Hall of Famer and can make any team better. Sure T.O. has his problems but so does everyone else on this world. For those that think the Panthers roster is full of angles then check your sources.
1. Tyler Brayton- Fined $25,000 for kneeing Jeremy Stevens in the balls.
2. Ed Johnson- Arrested for speeding and possession of marijuana.
3. Jon Beason- Was involved in the recording of the song "7th Floor Crew", rap song about sexual activities on the seventh floor of Mahoney Hall.
4. Jimmy Clausen- Cited for illegal transportation of alcohol, got in an altercation at a bar which resulted in a black eye.
5. Mike Goodson- Fined $7,500 for making a throat slashing gesture toward the crowd.
6. Dwayne Jarrett- Arrested and charged for DUI.
7. Steve Smith- Arrested for misdemeanor assault for breaking Anthony Bryant's nose, Smith also punched and brok Ken Lucas's nose.
The Panthers have players with personal problems just like any other team. Also another thing to look at is who T.O. has played for in the past, and I am not talking about coaches; I am talking about owners. There is not a better guy than the big cat himself Jerry Richardson to help a man turn his life around.
If the Panthers want T.O. than I will welcome him with open arms.
Plus what defense is going to stop Matt Moore, Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, Steve Smith, and Terrell Owens?
