Terrell Owens is preparing to be a hall of famer as he will give a speech on August 4 at his alma matter Tennessee-Chattanooga and will not be in Canton, Ohio where the main ceremony is taking place. Aside from getting his gold jacket, Owens still wants to take the field again at 44.
According to 3 Down Nation, the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos own his CFL rights and wants them to offer him a deal or release him from his negotiation list in the next 10 days. Owens has hired Canadian agent Jason Staroszik and he said that pro football is 100% something that he wants to do again.
“He wants to play in the NFL,” Staroszik said to ESPN. “But if he can’t, the CFL is the next-best option.”
Owens to the Eskimos seems unlikely though as he doesn’t want a mininum contract. Owens is in amazing shape but it will be interesting to see if an NFL team will take a chance on him. CFL teams should be all over him due to his stardom and name selling out tickets.
