UPDATE: According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, Terrell Owens' visit with the Seahawks (see below) will result in a one-year contract for the wide receiver.
That judge who suggested that Terrell Owens' career is over may have been wrong.
Not long after cutting ties with wideout Mike Williams and bringing in Braylon Edwards, the Seattle Seahawks are still tinkering with their receiving core. The NFC West team has decided to bring in T.O. for a tryout, as was first reported by KJR-AM in Seattle (Via NFL.com).
Owens, who recently cut ties with agent Drew Rosenhaus, last played in the NFL in 2010 and made a brief stint with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. But the Wranglers cut Owens in May due to his lack of commitment to the organization (among other things).
The 38-year-old has been dealing with issues off the field pertaining child support payments and foreclosures. He nearly faced jail time after for not showing up at a court appearance.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Still looking for wide receiver help, the Seattle Seahawks are bringing Terrell Owens in for a tryout.
The Seahawks confirmed a report from KJR-AM in Seattle late Sunday night that Owens would be working out for the Seahawks on Monday. The team is off Monday before returning to practice Tuesday.
Owens hasn't played in the NFL since the 2010 season with Cincinnati when he caught 72 passes for 983 yards and nine touchdowns. The 38-year-old Owens didn't get any NFL offers to play last season after surgery on his left knee. He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing eight of 11 games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. He was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.
