Terrell Owens to join the IFL's Allen Wranglers?

Just how low is Terrell Owens willing to go in order to play pro football? Pretty damn low, apparently.

According to the official team website, Owens is close to signing a deal to play with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League*.

*Whatever the hell that is.

As you should know, Owens hasn’t played since he led the Bengals in receiving in 2010, but he’s remained active (you know, recovering from an ACL tear, getting an arrest warrant issued for supposedly failing to pay child support, having various other money problems, NOT trying to commit suicide, and NOT having NFL teams call).

TO's Problems
But Owens apparently is still jonesing to play football, and he’s willing to play in the very minor leagues in order to possibly pique the interest of an NFL team. Either that, or his money problems are very bad indeed.

Players earn $225 per game in the IFL, and they get a bonus for winning. But Allen** says Owens could earn a compensation package between $250,000-$500,000 (!) if he elects to play.

**Major points to you if you knew where the Wranglers are located. I had to look it up, and the answer is Allen, Texas, not too far north of Dallas.

The Wranglers season begins in February, so if Owens actually signs the deal, it’ll have to be relatively soon.

"I'm sure Cowboys fans and all football fans in the area would love to T.O. back." Wranglers coach Patrick Pimmel said. "Terrell would be a great addition to our organization and I hope we can make this happen."

Whoever here mentioned that the Ravens should take a flyer on this guy - That won't happen. TO screwed over the Ravens when he blocked a trade to them and decided he wanted to play in Philly. Ray Lewis was irked and the front office WILL NOT OFFER him jack.

As another poster stated here: Karma is a Bitch.

Maybe he can do some Local Oldsmobile commercials for car dealers.

Nice one. There is an episode of King Of The Hill where an ex-Cowboy moves into the neighborhood and he's a used car salesman. He sells Dale Gribble "Deion Sanders Hyundai".

I would have liked to have seen a team like the Ravens take a shot at Terrell Owens. Using him as the 3rd wr would help out plus Boldin is coming off knee surgery when the playoffs start, you can never have enough weapons. I think he would be on his best behavior because not only is it a chance to go to the Super Bowl but he would be playing for a contract.
Finally a post I can comment on. Yeah, I agree. That would be a great opportunity. He can showcase what he has left and help a team get to the Super Bowl and prehaps peek an interest for other teams. If he can keep the ego in check and produce, sign him and work with him. If he gets out of line cut him and move on. 

So let's all hit the dude when he is down. Isn't it enough already that he is at a place where most with his talent would never want to be? Does it make folks feel better casting stones to a guy down on his luck? T.O. got on my nerves too but I will not wish ill will on the guy.

What price should he pay for his sins? I can't answer that, it's not my watch. Only one being can judge his actions and he will be judged just like the rest of us. We all have something we are not proud of in our lives. 

He want's to play football, let the man do it in peace. It's up to him and only him to work out his demons.
