Terrell Owens NFL Career
February 5, 2012 by staff
Terrell Owens NFL Career, Terrell Eldorado Owens ( born on December 7, 1973) is an American football wide receiver currently playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, of which he is also a co-owner. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Owens holds or shares several National Football League records, and features in the all-time top-five in several receiving categories, including yards and touchdowns.
Based as much on his size and speed as on his demonstrated ability, the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers drafted Owens in the third round of the 1996 NFL Draft. Owens played his first professional game against the New Orleans Saints, where he served as a member of the 49ers’ special teams.
His first catches were recorded against the Carolina Panthers on September 22, 1996 (two catches for a net six yards). Against the Atlanta Falcons a week later Owens had a 17-yard kick return and one catch for 26 yards. His first touchdown came on October 20 against the Cincinnati Bengals; in the fourth quarter he caught a 45-yard touchdown throw from Steve Young that tied a game eventually won by the Niners 28-21.
Before an arbitrator could make a ruling on Owens’ grievance, the NFL and the three teams involved in the controversy reached a settlement on March 16, 2004. The Ravens got their second-round pick back from San Francisco, and the 49ers in turn received a conditional fifth-round pick and defensive end Brandon Whiting from the Eagles in exchange for the rights to Owens.
Owens’ contract with the Eagles was reported to be worth $49 million for seven years, including a $10 million signing bonus.
In September 2004, Terrell Owens released a purported autobiography: Catch This! Going Deep with the NFL’s Sharpest Weapon. The 288-page book was ghostwritten by Stephen Singular.
Terrell Owens was in a Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday to try to lower payment on two of his four paternity cases. Inadvertently, judge Mark Mariani may have told Owens what everyone else seems to already know. That his NFL playing days are officially over.
“His NFL career seems to be over. I mean no disrespect,” said Mariani, according to TMZ, which then led Owens apparently to nod his head in acknowledgment.
The former Dallas Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals receiver was in court following the issuing of a warrant for his arrest following failure to appear for a child support hearing on Oct. 24.
Owens does have a rumored mid-six-figures offer on the table from the Indoor Football League’s Allen Wranglers, whom you are hearing about for the first time. It’s unknown if this is a real possibility for just a publicly stunt, which, sums up Owens career in the last 3-4 years perfectly.
