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).
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."
