Seattle Seahawks Cut Terrel Owens, Colts Acquire Vontae Davis From Dolphins! Who Should Pick T.O Up?

Terrell Owens was among the players notified of his release by the Seattle Seahawks.

NFL teams must reduce their rosters from 90 players to 75 players by Monday. The team has not announced those players who will be cut, but Owens revealed he had been released on his Twitter account.

Owens was signed by Seattle during the second week of training camp. He caught two passes in the two exhibition games he played for 41 yards. Owens was signed to a one-year contract for the veteran minimum, which is just under $1 million for a player of his experience. He was never considered a lock to make the roster, and with Sidney Rice returning from shoulder surgery and Braylon Edwards playing well, he was considered an increasing long shot after his first exhibition game in Denver when he was targeted five times, but had no receptions.

Owens, 38, was signed by Seattle after what was a phenomenal workout for the team. He was time running 40 yards in 4.45 seconds. Owens is No. 2 in receiving yards in league history, but he did not play in the NFL last year after suffering a torn knee ligament in the spring. He played for three different teams in the three seasons before that.

When Seattle signed him, coach Pete Carroll said the team was looking for someone to be a big, physically imposing receiver after the release of Mike Williams. Owens was a candidate. So was Edwards, though the two were playing different positions. After three exhibition games, Edwards ranks second on the team in receiving yards behind tight end Anthony McCoy.

Owens was not made available for comment after either of Seattle's exhibition games.

Jim Irsay showed his cards for days on Twitter and his prediction proved true Sunday: The Indianapolis Colts have agreed to trade a 2013 second-round pick for Miami Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis, FOXSports.com has learned.

Davis, the 25th overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, fills a glaring need for the Colts, who need a starting CB to play opposite Jarraurd Powers. A standout at Illinois, Davis has started 36 of 44 gamers for the Dolphins the past three seasons, collecting 148 tackles, a sack and hauling in nine interceptions.

But Davis, 24, had been battling Sean Smith and Richard Marshall for playing time and was playing mostly in the nickel package his preseason in Miami.
