How bad are things for the struggling Jets? Even out-of-work disgraced wide receiver Terrell Owens threw a jab at them Wednesday.
While New York was losing its third game of the season Monday night, Owens sent out a tweet reading:
Hey JETS!!! I'm available! I'm ready, willing & able! Call my agent @jordanwoy & let's make it happen.
Then during an interview Wednesday with TSN Canada, Owens defended his desperate-sounding tweet. He said the Jets are the ones who are desperate, considering they had cornerback Antonio Cromartie line up as receiver to help compensate for the loss of Santonio Holmes.
Said Owens: "It's not begging for a job when you know you can still play at a high level, given the opportunity. When you have a defensive back playing offense and running routes, I think that's more desperate than my actual tweet itself."
