Terrell Owens (pictured), the mercurial wide receiver known for his infamous antics as much as his formidable athletic ability, is eking out what’s left of his career in what is billed a “comeback” with the Indoor Football League.
As part owner of the Allen Wranglers in Texas, Owens is only slated to play in home games for the team as he works his way back into NFL playing shape. In his debut with the team this past Saturday, Owens showed flourishes of his former dominance on the field, scoring multiple times.
Owens, 38, looked spry suiting up for the Wranglers, hauling in three touchdown passes in as many catches. His team vanquished the visiting Wichita Wild to the tune of 50-30. Owens’ latest football stop could prove to be a brief one if a NFL team sees a need to add a receiver to their ranks.
Owens’ abrasive personality and flashy ways have carved a path of loneliness and piling debt, and a recent GQ interview supports claims that his main goal for attempting to return to the NFL is based on mounting child support payments.
Owens has not yet commented on the game or his performance.
