Veteran wide receiver Terrell Owens could potentially be a good fit with the Minnesota Vikings.
At least, Owens seems to think so.
Owens, who hasn't found work since he was cut by the Seattle Seahawks in training camp last season, told NFL Network Wednesday that both the Vikings and Kansas City Chiefs would be suitable options for him to make a comeback with.
Owens cited the Vikings' offense and his relationship with wide receivers coach George Stewart as reasons for marking Minnesota as a favorable destination. Kansas City, on the other hand, is now under the guidance of Owens' former coach with the Philadelphia Eagles, Andy Reid.
The 39-year-old receiver has yet to be contacted by any NFL teams about a potential deal since parting with Seattle.
"So I understand the process. Obviously teams are really taking a closer look in evaluating their younger players," Owens said on NFL Network's "NFL AM". "Being a free agent, I understand that later in the months as training camp starts, they'll start looking for veterans."
It has been more than two years since Owens last recorded a catch in the NFL. In his last season, 2010, Owens caught 72 passes for 983 yards with the Cincinnati Bengals. He spent last year with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.
