Indoor Football League
December 30, 2011 by staff
Indoor Football League, Terrell Owens might finally have a contract. Owens, who has tried in vain to hook on with an NFL team, reportedly was offered a deal to play for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, with a salary between $250,000 to $500,000 and an ownership stake in the suburban Dallas team.
“We’re very close,” said Wranglers general manager Drew Pearson, a former Cowboys receiving star. “Jon Frankel, our owner, has been working on this for quite some time now. When he started, he felt there was maybe about a zero percent chance he could get it done, but through his persistent efforts and really wanting to make this happen, he has been able to make contact with their people. Now it’s in a stage where he thinks it’s at the point where it’s about 70 percent done and close to being finalized, so we’ll see how it shakes out from this point.”
Owens, 38, had 72 catches for 983 yards and nine touchdown for the Bengals last season but is recovering from knee surgery for an offseason injury.
“There’s no question he can play,” Pearson said. “I think right now he’s probably better than over half the receivers in the NFL. You see as the season is shaking out all the injuries at the wide receiver position and they’re signing guys off practice squads … but no one took a chance on Terrell Owens. A lot of it has to do with his past history, his attitude.”
