NFL: Bills decline to offer contract to Terrell Owens
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Terrell Owens is on the market after the Buffalo Bills announced Saturday they do not plan to offer him a contract.
The Bills also declined to offer contracts to defensive end Ryan Denney and wide receiver Josh Reed, allowing them to become unrestricted free agents at midnight on March 5.
Owens, who will turn 37 in December, caught 55 passes for 829 yards and five touchdowns in his only season in Buffalo. He recorded the 1,000th catch of his career in Week 16 at Atlanta to become the sixth player in league history to reach the milestone.
Denney was picked by Buffalo in the second round of the 2002 draft, and has 318 tackles and 23½ sacks in his career. Reed was drafted the same year and is fifth on the club's receiving list with 311 catches for 3,575 yards.
