Eskimos add receiver Terrell Owens to their neg list

The Edmonton Eskimos have added former NFL receiver Terrell Owens to their negotiation list.

3DownNation insider Justin Dunk has confirmed the move after TSN reporter Dave Naylor first reported the news.

The 44-year-old Owens has not played in a professional game since 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals. But he can still run – fast. Monday he clocked a 4.43 40-yard dash.

In 2012 he played eight games with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League making 35 receptions for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Seattle Seahawks signed Owens during training camp in 2012 but released him a few weeks later. Owens captained and played for the self-named Team Owens in the inaugural game of the American Flag Football League last June.

During 16 NFL seasons, Owens had 15,934 career receiving yards which rank second all-time in NFL history and 153 receiving touchdowns put him third. He was a five-time first-team All-Pro in the NFL.
