The 2011 season has begun, and for the first time since 1997 Terrell Owens doesn’t have a job in the NFL.

He doesn’t expect it to last.  The receiver-turned-reality-star-turned-aspiring-actor tells (who else?) TMZ.com that he’ll definitely play this year.

It’s just a matter of time,” Owens said.

Owens suffered a torn ACL earlier this year.  He has said repeatedly that he plans to play.  To make that happen, he’ll need to find a team to be interested in his services.

While many will surely say no, it only takes one to say yes.
