Terrell Owens says he will be back in a month to play this season for the NFL. Owens who underwent knee surgery in his off-season claims that he will be even better next year.
The six-time Pro Bowler at 37 only has one obstacle in his way. He is a free agent and has not currently signed with a team. Last year Owens had 72 receptions for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Owens was born on December 7, 1973. Known as a very dominant wide receiver, his career has had plenty of ups and downs. His playing did not come in play but his controversial antics and his mouth has been his worst enemy. After being drafted in 1996 by the San Francisco 49ers, Owens was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004 after he had differences with players and the managing office of the 49ers. His controversy usually was stronger than his ability on the field and owners got tired of his attitude and trouble.
Owens was again released by the Eagles and signed with the Dallas Cowboys who released him in 2009 before the season started. He played with the Buffalo Bills in 2009 and the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2010 season.
Owens inability to control his emotions on and off of the field have led him to receive many fines from the NFL and well as several key penalties for the teams that he played for. Team player was never one of Owens’ primary duties.
His fame came with the 49ers when Jerry Rice was injured with a torn ACL in the 1997 season. He became Steve Young’s main man winning 13 games that season. That season he had 936 yards and eight touchdowns.
Owens faces several obstacles for coming back to the NFL. His age is one and then the controversy he brings with him. This year his ability will have to outweigh his ego and his mouth.
