T.O. is back in buisiness! Terrell Owens has another opportunity to have a career in the NFL….as he’s been offered a deal with the Seattle Seahawks for a one-year contract reportedly worth $1 million. He worked out for the team on Monday and apparently things went well.
On Monday night he tweeted: “God is good. Thankful. Grateful. To ALL my new teammates & the “12th Man”… Let’s Do This!!”
Owens, a 15-year veteran, is one of the most productive receivers in NFL history. He sits second all-time in receiving yards (15,934) and touchdowns (153), and sixth in receptions (1,078). His nine seasons with at least 1,000 yards receiving and 13 years with at least 50 catches rank third. His total receptions are sixth on the NFL career list.
After surgery on his left knee, Owens didn’t receive any offers to play last season. He did play in eight games for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League this spring, but he was released and lost an ownership stake in the team in May.
After spending his first eight seasons with San Francisco, Owens played the next seven with four teams. He last played in 2010 with Cincinnati. He had 72 catches for 983 yards and nine TDs that season.
T.O. was open to fans about his struggle with his career, his child support issues, commitment issues, financial issues and lack of being a father to his children on his reality show on VH1, the T.O. Show. It was sad to see his career come to an end as well as his friendship with his publicist Mo and Kita, who were the co-stars of his show. He has since been on Dr. Phil where he tried to make steps to become a better father to his children. I hope this is another step in the right direction, to him getting his life on track. Good luck Terrell!
