Terrell Owens will sue the Allen Wranglers. Unless he doesn’t.
That pretty much summarizes the status of Owens’ threat to sue his most recent former employer.
He threatened to sue the Wranglers if they didn’t give him by Tuesday $160,000 and retract comments about his failure to show up for an event at a children’s hospital. The Wranglers told him politely (or not) to shove it.
As of Thursday, Owens reportedly told the Wranglers that a suit would be coming if he didn’t get what he wanted by the end of the day. The end of the day came and went, and Owens has yet to sue.
Perhaps Owens realizes that if he sues the Wranglers he’ll wipe out whatever slim hope he may have left to get back into the NFL. Or maybe he realizes that filing suit would be a waste of time, because the Wranglers surely don’t have the money to pay him, via settlement or verdict.
Or maybe he wants to milk this thing for as much attention as possible before making a decision.
We’ll choose all of the above.
