Shanny’s Foot Down: No T.O.

With the only remaining big-name free agent on the market doing everything he can to generate interest, the fate of Terrell Owens has emerged as a key topic for those of us who follow this stuff on a regular basis.

And so when Redskins coach Mike Shanahan appeared on WFAN from the American Century Championship, a celebrity golf event produced annually by our friends at NBC, the former Broncos coach was asked about his potential interest in Owens.

In April, Shanahan said on ESPN’s schedule-release show as to T.O., “We will not go in that direction right now.”  On Thursday, Shanahan said that “right now” continues to apply.

“I made a commitment relative to T.O., that we were not gonna go in that direction,” Shanahan said, via Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog.  “There’s a lot of factors involved, but bottom line is . . .”  (And, apparently, Shanahan’s phone cut out at that point.)

When Shanahan made his “right now” comments on ESPN, his demeanor suggested that the door is shut — and that it won’t open in the future.  Right now, that appears to be the case.
