They might be in the market for another wide receiver, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not interested in signing free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens, league sources have told

Owens, 35, was released by the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday in what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones called a salary cap-related move, but some speculation suggests locker room problems contributed to Owens' departure.

The 6-foot-3, 218-pound Owens has played for three teams during his NFL career. However, controversy has followed him in San Francisco (1996-03), Philadelphia (2004-05) and most recently Dallas (2006-08).

Although Owens has had his fair share of spotlight in the media, he's also caught his fair share of passes. Owens has 951 career receptions for 14,122 yards (14.8 avg.) and 139 touchdowns.

The Bucs have several wide receivers, including Antonio Bryant, Michael Clayton, Maurice Stovall, Dexter Jackson, Brian Clark, Paris Warren, Kelly Campbell, Anthony Mix and Cortez Hankton under contract for the 2009 season.

The Bucs are believed to be in the market for another wide receiver, which could come through free agency or the 2009 NFL Draft.
