VIA USA TODAY:
Don’t buy your Terrell Owens Redskins jersey just yet.
Less than a day after Terrell Owens’ agent said the free agent WR wanted to play in Washington, Donovan McNabb said he’s not necessarily on board with the plan.
McNabb told the Washington Post that an ESPN report that he was encouraging the team to acquire Owens was untrue.
Owens’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, also said that Owens was interested in playing with McNabb for the Redskins and added the two had repaired the relationship that soured when they were teammates in Philadelphia.
Rosenhaus said he had reached out to the Redskins on behalf of Owens.
Washington coach Mike Shanahan told ESPN the team had decided not to pursue Owens.
“No, we will not go in that direction right now,” he said.
