All the talk of Terrell Owens retiring has finally gotten to Drew Rosenhaus. He tried to sit at home quietly while the speculation of Owens’ swirled, but he just couldn’t. So he decided to call into SportsCenter to make it clear that Owens is not retiring because he is a “legendary healer”.
Agent Drew Rosenhaus called in to ESPN’s “SportsCenter” on Tuesday to clarify the reports on Owens’ injury and said the receiver had the surgery in April and will be ready to hit the football field in August.
“He’s many, many months into his recovery now. He’s doing fantastic,” Rosenhaus told ESPN. He said Dr. James Andrews, who performed the surgery on Owens, was confident the 37-year-old receiver had a chance to play as soon as August.
Rosenhaus called speculation that Owens was contemplating retirement “nonsense.”
“He is a legendary healer. He comes back from injury faster than anybody I’ve ever seen,” Rosenhaus said.
Job well done, Drew. That should put NFL owners and GMs at ease about all of this.
