T.O. tells Jets he’s available

In the event the receiver-needy Jets weren’t already aware that Terrell Owens is among the free agents available at that position, T.O. decided to give them a reminder.

During Monday night’s game.

“Hey JETS!!! I’m available! I’m ready, willing & able! Call my agent [Jordan Woy] & let’s make it happen,” Owens posted on Twitter at 10:29 p.m. ET Monday.

The Jets possibly are resisting due to concerns that Owens’ presence would confirm the existence of a circus in New York. But pretty much everyone who’s paying attention already knows it’s a circus; adding T.O. would be the equivalent of slightly expanding the big top.

The bottom line is that they need help at the position, if they want to be competitive. Owens showed during his preseason stint with the Seahawks that he can still gain separation on defensive back -- and that he still will drop a ball from time to time once he does. It still makes him better than no-name options like Jason Hill, the player whom the Jets ultimately signed to replace injured No. 1 wideout Santonio Holmes on the roster.

If the Jets hope to win as many games as possible in 2012, they’d dump Hill and add Owens.
