Terrell Owens “absolutely 100 percent” committed to a comeback

Terrell Owens is “absolutely 100 percent” committed to a return to the football field, his agent told Dave Naylor of TSN.

Owens activated a 10-day clause Saturday that forces the Edmonton Eskimos — the Canadian Football League that owns his rights — to either offer him a contract or release him.

“He still feels like he has some football years left in him,” Canadian-based agent Jason Staroszik told Naylor. “He just loves the game and wants to get back to playing, whether it’s the CFL or NFL.”

Owens, 44, recently posted video showing a hand-held time of 4.43 in the 40-yard dash, while training with Julio Jones. But he hasn’t played since 2012 when he suited up for eight games with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, and his last NFL snap came in 2010 as a member of the Bengals.

Owens enters the Pro Football Hall of Fame next month, though, as everyone now knows, he is not attending the induction ceremony and instead holding his own event in Tennessee.

  1. Only man 44 or older who could still play WR in the NFL is Willie Gault. He’d make your 4.43 40 time look like amateur hour. Dude still runs around 10 flat in the 100 in his mid 50s. Teams would HAVE to respect his deep speed.

  2. So, if they release him, what’s his backup plan besides calling attention to himself?

  3. classic example of a narcissistic moron. Washed up ex NFL player making a fool of himself and disrespecting the Hall of Fame in the process.. Rescind the enshrinement !!

  4. This is an old joke waiting to happen: It’s funny until somebody gets hurt – then it’s hilarious!

  5. He is still faster and better than some of the WR’s that are currently on NFL and CFL rosters. He should market his workout/motivation/diet routine.

  6. Why do so many football players who have been out of the game for years talk about making a comeback? Every one of them was terrible in his last year in the NFL, but now they’re supposed to be able to play well after being out for 5 to 10 years?

  7. I get the feeling that perhaps T.O. is desperate for money. He just cannot hang up the cleats, can he? Hope he gets exposed as the loser he really is, up there in Canada, hey?

  8. I wonder if his snarky little agent will come out and say “He has $54,000.00 a year to live for!”

  9. The haters baffle me. Best case scenario for TO, he plays football in the CFL (which isn’t even a farm league for the NFL). Worst case, he doesn’t play. No idea why people are upset. Let the guy spin his wheels and watch what happens – it won’t affect your favorite NFL team.

    It’s because people don’t like Owens. Does he ever do anything likable?

  11. Sorry, any college game is better than the CFL. At least the kids put up the ole college try. In the pros you never know who’s going to show up and play from week to week.

  12. No one cares man!! Go do some sit ups in your driveway!! That is if
    you haven’t lost your house and still have a driveway! :/ Dolt!!

  13. The “100%” comment reminds me of what I saw in my high school teacher’s classroom. Above the blackboard there was a printed banner that read: “10% ability, 90% attitude.” That means attitude is far more important than ability. It is indeed T.O.’s attitude, not his ability, which resulted in his early retirement. Teams were fed up with his attitude. It did not matter how good he was, his attitude was what got him in trouble with every team he played for.

    Based on what? Guy hasn’t played a game in six years.

  15. I hope T.O. brings his longjohns. Edmonton gets pretty chilly in November. Cold enough to make Green Bay and Chicago look like sunspot holiday destinations. Looking firward to seeing what he can do.

  16. TO, if you’re THAT hungry, and THAT committed, WHY WAIT SO FREAKIN LONG???

    Come on man, you’re done. Being in great shape doesn’t make you a world-class football player anymore.

  17. Honestly, if he wasn’t a head case, Id love to have him back on the Eagles.

    The dude could always run a great route. And hes magic with the ball in his hands. If hes still that fast, hed make a great inside receiver. 6’3″ 226…and a 4.43. That’s not shabby for 44.
