Terrell Owens' latest attempt to resuscitate his NFL career has been derailed.  Owens, No. 2 in NFL career receiving yards, revealed his release from the Seattle Seahawks on his Twitter account.

A surprisingly good workout -- including a 40-yard time of 4.45 seconds -- earned Owens a one-year veteran minimum contract early in the Seahawks' training camp.

Owens signed a one-year veteran minimum contract with the Seahawks during the second week of training camp, but was never considered to have a lock on a roster spot. The impressive preseason play of Braylon Edwards made Owens more expendable.

His comeback bid came into question when he didn't record a reception among the five passes targeted his way during the Seahawks first preseason game. He caught two passes for 41 yards in his second preseason appearance. Owens' shaky financial situation is one of the main reasons the 38-year-old receiver is trying to catch on with an NFL team, after being released in May by the Allen Wranglers,  indoor arena team, located in a suburb of Dallas.
