Terrell Owens agrees to sign with Seahawks on one-year deal

Tuesday August 7th, 2012

UPDATE (11:30 p.m. ET): Owens saluted his new teammates and Seattle fans via his Twitter account late Monday night after he agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a one-year deal with wide receiver Terrell Owens, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported Monday night.

The move comes after the 38-year-old Owens tried out with the Seahawks earlier Monday and ran the 40-yard dash in less than 4.5 seconds.

Seattle is giving Owens his first shot at the NFL since the 2010 season, when he played with the Cincinnati Bengals.  He underwent knee surgery after the 2010 season, during which he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns.

Since then, Owens has gone through a much-maligned year. Owens was released by the Indoor Football League's Allen Wranglers, and then split with longtime high-profile agent Drew Rosenhaus.
