The last we saw of Terrell Owens was his sad appearance on Dr. Phil, when he confronted the multiple mothers of his children. He has said that he is running out of money and is in a real dark place in his life right now. Could it get any lower?
TO’s latest episode is not good. The Allen Wranglers, an IFL team located in Allen, Texas, released Owens on Tuesday. He signed with the Wranglers in February, receiving a six-figure salary and an ownership stake. That ownership stake has now been revoked.
Wranglers owner Jon Frankel cited Owens' refusal to play in two upcoming road games with possible playoff implications, as well as his no-show for a scheduled appearance at a local children's hospital, as reasons for the dismissal.
Make no mistake, TO has—or maybe had—serious talent. In addition to being the NFL’s second all-time leading receiver in yards, the 38-year-old is the oldest player to have a 200-yard receiving game (36 years old, 300 days). He also led the league in receiving TDs in 2001, 2002 and 2006.
He last played for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010.
That was then. This is now.
