Terrell Owens might really be on his way back to the NFL ahead of the 2022/23 playoffs.
Rumors of the Hall of Fame wide receiver returning have picked up speed this week and, according to a league source cited by MLFootball, the Baltimore Ravens have reached out to Owens and his agent, Gregory Daniel, in the hopes of getting the former star in their uniform. The five-time First-Team All-Pro is believed to have worked out with DeSean Jackson before he went to Baltimore.
Owens, who turned 49 this month, has also been in contact with a number of Super Bowl contenders.

The Dallas Cowboys have been named as one such team but a potential deal is also reported to have fallen through as they weren’t willing to agree to the sum he asked for. Daniel told Sports Illustrated this week that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in communication with him and Owens, but it appears the Cowboys won’t be the ones who land the Hall of Famer.
Terrell Owens Could Become The NFL’s Oldest-Ever Player
Should Owens return to the league, he would be its oldest player and would unseat Tom Brady as the NFL’s granddad, as he’s been called. He will also be the oldest active player in NFL history and surpass George Blanda, who retired at the age of 48 in 1976 after playing for 26 seasons.
Owens’ 15,934 receiving yards are the third most in league history. But he hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
