Owens heads indoors for return to pro football
Question of the Day
ALLEN, TEXAS (AP) - Terrell Owens is going indoors for his return to pro football.
The six-time Pro Bowl receiver has accepted an offer to be a player and will have an ownership stake in the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.
The Wranglers, who open their season Feb. 25 at home, extended the offer to Owens last month. They posted on their website Thursday that they were excited to announce it was official.
"Uh-oh, it's official," Owens exclaimed in a video message posted on his Twitter page. "I'm headed back to Texas. That's right, IFL, here I come. Allen, Texas, here I come. I'm going to be me. ... Allen, Texas, I'll see you in the end zone."
The 38-year-old Owens didn't get any NFL offers to play last season after surgery on his left knee. Allen is a suburb north of Dallas.
Over 15 NFL seasons with five teams, Owens had 1,078 catches for 15,934 yards with 153 touchdowns. He is sixth in career receptions, and second in yards receiving and touchdowns behind Jerry Rice.
Owens began his career with San Francisco (1996-2003), where he was teammates with Rice for five seasons, and then played in Philadelphia (2004-05), Dallas (2006-08), Buffalo (2009) and Cincinnati (2010).
In late October, Owens held a workout in California to show teams he was healthy. No NFL teams showed up or offered deals after the workout shown by ESPN and NFL Network.
