Terrell Owens, one of the greatest receivers in NFL history, is coming out of retirement and will return to professional football with startup league Fan Controlled Football, a source told Reuters.
Fan Controlled Football is a league that features a 7-on-7 format in an Atlanta indoor facility.
The 48-year-old Owens, whose NFL career ended in 2010, has remained in game shape ever since his last game in the league with hopes he would get another shot in the NFL.
Reuters is reporting that Owens will most likely join the Zappers, which means he would be catching passes from former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.
“The source said Owens will be mic’d up and wearing a helmet camera for games. He will also provide content for streaming provider fuboTV by interviewing team owners and players during games when he is not playing.”
Owens last played professional football for the Seattle Seahawks in 2012.
