T.O. has taken the high road with more details to come.
Here is his statement.
It is unfortunate that the IFL Wranglers released Mr. Owens today in the manner that they did. Mr. Owens played all games according to his contractual agreement and was proud to be a part of the IFL and the Allen Wranglers. He was happy to be playing back in Texas and put a national spotlight of interest on the league like never before.
Upon his release today, Mr. Owens said, “I appreciate the opportunity that Mr. Frankel gave me and wish the Allen Wranglers all the best moving forward.”
Mr. Owens’ legal team is addressing the details of the Wranglers release statement that they shared with the media today. We cannot comment further on this.
Mr. Owens remains positive and is focused on a return to the NFL.
