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."

What did T.O. do with all his money?
He spent it all polishing his ego.  Next after this will be a 3 round boxing exhibition against Lindsay Lohan's father or maybe Lindsay herself.  He's on an express train to celebrity rehab with Dr. Drew.

Indoor Football League? Wow. I've heard of the Arena Football League and they're pretty good. When I was living in Spokane, they have an awesome arena football team there. Kurt Warner is one of the arena football league qg before he went to play in the NFL. What did T.O. do with all his money?

No matter how low TO acts, it is not right for the writer to make fun of a suicide attempt, whether it was legit or not...What kind of serious writer laughs at suicide? Do you troll on message boards too?

It is truly poetic justice how far this whiny child has fallen.  Indoor football is just a small slice above WWE.  The only thing that would make this better was if the team was in Angola or some other god forsaken 3rd world nation.

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.
