Report: Terrell Owens eyes Cowboys comeback at 49

Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens wants to make a comeback with the Dallas Cowboys at age 49, Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday.

Owens’ Houston-based agent, Gregory D.L. Daniel, confirmed to SI that he has been in contact with the Cowboys and other NFL teams.

“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.”

Owens, who has been out of the league since 2010, turned 49 on Dec. 7 and would become the oldest player in NFL history.

Quarterback and kicker George Blanda was 48 when he played his final season with the Oakland Raiders in 1976.

“He most recently ran a 4.5 40-yard dash, which was his warmup. He’s a legend,” Daniel said. “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.”

Owens played three seasons with Dallas during a 15-year career that saw him catch 1,078 passes for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns in 219 games with the San Francisco 49ers (1996-2003), Philadelphia Eagles (2004-05), Cowboys (2006-08), Buffalo Bills (2009) and Cincinnati Bengals (2010).

The five-time first-team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowl selection was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018. He is third on the all-time list in receiving TDs behind Jerry Rice (197) and Randy Moss (156).

Terrell Owens punches heckler outside L.A. store

Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens punched a heckler outside a CVS in Los Angeles last Saturday, telling a news outlet Wednesday that it was done to protect himself and a fan who were being threatened.

TMZ posted a video of the altercation, showing Owens landing a punch that dropped the alleged aggressor to the ground.

Witnesses told TMZ the alleged aggressor threatened to beat up Owens and the other man, who was wearing a 49ers jersey, outside of the store.

Witnesses told TMZ that Owens was playing peacemaker between the two men until the alleged aggressor took a swing at Owens, who then landed a haymaker.

“I made verbal demands asking the aggressor to stop his threatening behavior,” Owens told the Associated Press. “… Unfortunately, I had to act using self-defense to end a threat towards myself and the fan.”

Owens subsequently got into his Tesla and drove off. It’s unclear if police were summoned.

Owens was inducted into the Pro Football HOF in 2018 after a career that included 15,934 yards receiving and 153 touchdowns.

The Fan Controlled Football League, an indoor football league that allows fans to call plays, saw a Pro Football Hall of Famer score a touchdown on Saturday … at the age of 48.

Terrell Owens, who concluded a Hall of Fame career in 2010, scored a touchdown reception 12 years later on a jump ball for the Zappers.

The league announced Owens would join former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel as a member of the Zappers on Thursday.

“I’m happy to be part of a league that is redefining the game and bringing a level of fan interaction to sports that has never been done before,” Owens said in a league press release. “I’m pumped to have fans dial up the plays for me and will see you all on April 16!”

Owens was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and five-time All Pro over a 15-year NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.

He finished his NFL tenure with 1,078 receptions (eighth all-time) for 15,934 yards (third all-time) and 153 touchdowns (also third all-time).

Will They Play in the Pros – Tim Tebow and Terrell Owens Props

Will Tim Tebow play in an MLB Game in 2018?

Yes      +150     (3/2)

No        -180     (5/9)

Note: The former Heisman winner and Florida Gator HOFer is having a successful second season in the minors. After being called up to AA he is batting .273 with 36 RBI and 6 HR on the season for the Binghampton Rumble Ponies, an affiliate of the New York Mets. Being called up to the majors would likely be a marketing ploy but if Tebow continues to improve, the last place Mets could turn to him to sell some extra tickets when out of the playoffs in August or September. 

 

Will Terrell Owens play in the CFL in 2018?

Yes      +240     (12/5)

No        -300     (1/3)

Note: After being released by the Edmonton Eskimos negotiation list on Friday, this soon to be NFL Hall of Famer is officially a CFL free agent. The 44-year-old WR still has a lot of desire to play professional football. Owens told TSN: “I know that I do have the ability to play. I know everybody sees the shape that I’m in. There’s a lot of athletes that play their prospective sports, but there are few guys that defy the odds. I think I’m one of those guys.”
