T.O. will play his second IFL game on Sunday

TO-wranglers AP

When we last left Terrell Owens‘ effort to get back into the NFL by way of the IFL, Owens had completed his debut with the Allen Wranglers.

And he wasn’t due to play again until March 31, because that’s the next time the Wranglers were due to play in Allen.

You see, Owens’ effort to prove that he’s a true team player arises from a contract that requires him to play with the team only when the team plays at home.

But Owens reportedly left the door open to joining his teammates on the road.  If the team the Wranglers will be playing will separately be paying T.O., then Owens may be playing.

Apparently, that’s what will be happening on Sunday in Santa Ana.  The IFL has announced that Owens will join the Wranglers when they take on the New Mexico Stars in Santa Ana.

In his debut with the Wranglers, Owens caught three passes for three touchdowns, all in the second quarter.

    New Mexico has a team in this league?

    I didn’t even know that…and I live in Albuquerque!

    I guess this tool will never learn humility.

    nineroutsider is absolutely right! Let’s put this grudge match on TV.

    He will play if his team’s opponent pays him to? This is just pathetic. Please stop reporting on it.

    The opposing teams have to pay him to show up?? How does that make the slightest bit of sense? I can understand the crowd being drawn in because of the name but seriously, does putting butts in the seats trump W’s in the win column? Or is it part of the contract that the opposing team pays him, they all get good PR, and T.O. rides the pine?

    Regardless of all else, the fans lose on this one.

    3 tds? Crud. I gotta go hit the IFL fantasy waiver wire.

    LOL at the first comment.

    That is awesome, Lets go T.O! He just doesn’t quit! …….more than I can say for Randy Moss (quitter)

  15. foreigncarnut says: Mar 9, 2012 6:16 PM

    I want to make sure I understand this. He won’t play unless the opposing team pays him to be there and try to beat them. And then they actually did that.
    Just making sure lol

    Gee, no wonder why people are annoyed with you and T.O.!!!!

    I don’t think anyone questions that T.O. still has skills. It’s his mouth that has kept him out of the NFL.

  19. thetooloftools says: Mar 9, 2012 6:42 PM

    i suppose that now he’s going to play in away games this makes him more of a team guy. talk about a dog and pony show.

    T.O. is going to be racing horses in Tijuana next year. After that he will be a geek row at the carnival biting the heads off of chickens.

    hey guys, just a heads up the city is named Rio Rancho not Santa Ana. The arena they play in is named Santa Ana Star Center. Santa Ana is a native american tribe thay owns a casino here. I live less than 5 miles from the arena (its in the middle of no where).

    Supposedly, the Stars paid between 10-25k for him to play and one of the conditions was that the hotel he gets was up to a certain standard. Some team player.

    Yep, and mall openings,too.

    Do they have lines on this game? I’d think the FBI may be interested in knowing that a player is accepting money from the opposition to appear in a game.
