Terrell Owens may be pushing 50, but he remains in tip-top shape and refuses to give up on the idea of playing in the league again. Despite him being 12 years removed since he last played a game, it has never stopped the Pro Football Hall of Famer from trying to get back in the league at age 49.
Owens’ agent, Gregory D.L. Daniel, informed Aaron Wilson of SI.com that he contacted the Dallas Cowboys and other teams about trying to secure a workout.
“We’ve been in constant communication with Jerry Jones’ office over the last few days about the possibility of him returning to the Cowboys,” Daniel said. “Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small. He’s in outstanding shape. He looks no different than he did years ago. I watched him running routes full-speed with DeSean [Jackson] and he looked great. He didn’t drop a pass.”

“He most recently ran a 4.5 40-yard dash, which was his warm-up. He’s a legend. We want to make history and see him break these records. If anybody can do it, it’s him. His three Ds are desire, dedication and discipline. He embodies that every day, even running hills at 3 a.m. on Christmas morning.”
The Cowboys are in the midst of a playoff run but could be open to signing Owens to the practice squad. It will be interesting to see if Jerry Jones opts to give Terrell Owens a chance.
As you are well aware, Owens has tried for years to sign to a team. He still works out like a man who may step foot on that field again. In fact, Owens worked out with Baltimore Ravens wide receiver DeSean Jackson this year before the veteran Jackson signed with the AFC North playoff team.
If signed, Owens would become the oldest player to play in the NFL in league history.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
