Seahawks say ADIOS to Terrell Owens, cut him
Owens tweeted on Sunday that he is no longer a member of the Seattle Seahakws, part of the league-mandated roster reductions from 90 to 75 players.
TO making a comeback after not playing since 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals just didn't have it in the 2 preseason games he played in.
The 38-year-old posted a message on his Twitter account shortly before 11 a.m. PDT that he had been released.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver.</p>— Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) <a href="https://twitter.com/terrellowens/status/239783536058564608" data-datetime="2012-08-26T17:57:04+00:00">August 26, 2012</a></blockquote>

Owens signed a one-year deal with Seattle on Aug. 7.
All we saw in two games from TO was drop after drop after drop.
He failed to make a catch in any of his five targets against the Broncos and then had another glaring drop against Kansas City on Friday night. He finished the preseason with just two receptions _ a 40-yard catch from Russell Wilson where Owens had to slow down and lean back to haul in the pass and a 1-yard reception on a screen.
For as impressive as his long catch was in Seattle's 44-14 win over the Chiefs, it served as Owens' only highlight in a Seahawks uniform.
