Last month, word emerged that former (not by choice) NFL receiver Terrell Owens is considering a lucrative (by arena football standards) offer from the Allen (Texas) Wranglers of the IFL.  After Saturday’s game-winning catch from 49ers tight end Vernon Davis conjured memories of T.O.’s epic postseason touchdown reception from 13 years earlier in nearly the same spot of the same end zone, we decided to roll up the sleeves, put on the fedora with the “press” card sticking out of it, and track down an update.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, discussion between the Wranglers and Owens continue, and a decision is expected within the next week or so.

It could be that Owens wants to be completely sure that no one will need him for the conference title games or the Super Bowl before making the commitment to the IFL team, which begins its season in late February.

Regardless, Owens could soon loving him some him at a lower level of the sport.

    TO is planning on broadcasting his “decision.”

    “I think I should take my talents to the Indoor Football League,” Owens said.

    All this hype about the catch II. What about the one he dropped in the e3ndzone that proved to be the losing play for the 49ers? VD more clutch than T.O. FACT

    “Regardless, Owens could soon loving him some him at a lower level of the sport.”

    Great word choice.

    Is he broke, desperate for attention, or both?

  17. foul83 says: Jan 15, 2012 5:27 PM

    He’ll kill himself before he signs.

    Plenty of busses in the IFL for him to throw his QB’s under.

  19. lilrob10201 says: Jan 15, 2012 6:39 PM

    He will dominate.People say T.O is done but before he got injured for the Beangles he had 9 TDs and 983 receiving yards and the runner up behind Vick for comeback player of the year.
