The Patriots need some healthy offensive weapons. Dion Lewis is done for the season. Julian Edelman might be back for the playoffs. Rob Gronkowski is ailing with a bad knee. After winning their first 10 games, the Patriots have lost to Denver and Philadelphia.
The answer to their problems? It's Terrell Owens, according to Terrell Owens.
Here's how badly T.O. wants back into the NFL:
He hasn't played since 2010 when he had 72 receptions for 983 yards and seven touchdowns with the Bengals.
Owens, 42, is entering his first year of eligibility for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He ranks sixth on the NFL's all-time list with 1,078 receptions.
