Terrell Owens will be 56-years-old and still trying to get back into the National Football League.
Owens hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010, but the Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver isn’t shutting the door on getting back in the league as he told TMZ Sports.
“If it happens, it happens,” he said. “But at the end of the day, like I said, my main focus honestly is to have fun and, like I said, getting paid a little bit.”
Owens joined the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League for the 2012 season.
He had 35 receptions, 420 yards, and 10 touchdowns in eight games for the Wranglers, but was released midway through the season after he refused to play in two road games and failed to show up for a scheduled appearance at a children’s hospital.
Despite not playing in the NFL for 12 years, Owens has remained around the game as he served as a team captain for Team Owens against a team led by Michael Vick in the American Flag Football League when the league was formed in 2017.
Owens was on the negotiating list for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League in July 2018. He didn’t reach a deal with the club before the 10-day window closed. After his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction in August 2018, Owens worked out for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The six-time Pro Bowler ranks third in NFL history in both receiving yards (15,934) and touchdowns (153).
