A day after 37-year-old wide receiver Terrell Owens staged a reality TV type workout before a live audience in hopes of drumming up potential offers from interested NFL teams, his first contract proposal arrived - from the Arena Football League.

"We feel that this is an ideal time to approach the future NFL Hall of Famer," said Rush General Manager and President Gene Nudo. "It would be a fantastic honor to add Terrell to our current roster for the 2012 season."
Owens, who has been rehabbing from ACL surgery since injuring his knee last season in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns, held a public workout yesterday in Calabasas, California. However, not one NFL scout showed up for the nationally-televised event.
Drew Rosenhaus, Owens' agent, said he'll send tapes of his client's workout to all 32 NFL teams and expects to attract some interest in the coming weeks.
Owens had 72 receptions for 983 yards and 9 touchdowns last season with the Cincinnati Bengals.
