Owens was introduced as a member of the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League on Wednesday night, and he said it’s a step toward getting back into the NFL.
“I have no answers as for why I’m here,” Owens told the Star-Telegram. “I know God works in mysterious ways. It was an opportunity for myself and my family. It’s a way for myself to keep in shape. I haven’t retired from the NFL. I want to play a couple more years. I know I’m physically fit to play the game still.”
Owens says it still bothers him that the Cowboys released him after saying they were committed to having him as part of their future.
“It was very disappointing,” Owens said. “It was one of those things where again, it’s a lot of lip service, people saying they’re going to do one thing and do another. I’ve learned a lot within the last three to five years about life in general and even people in general.”
And Owens is hoping he can apply what he learned to a future in the NFL.
