Terrell Ownes is up for grabs in the CFL.
The 44-year-old receiver was released from the Edmonton Eskimos negotiation list, but regardless Owens wants to be back between the white lines on a pro field.
“I want to play football if the right situation comes about. Everybody knows me, they know of my career and the passion that I played with,” Owens told TSN’s Cabbie Richards on the ESPYS red carpet.
“I understand that I could’ve still been playing. People seeing me workout and doing the things that I’ve done the last month or so it’s very obvious that I do have the skill set to still play the game.”
Owens was selected in the third round, No. 89 overall, of the 1996 NFL draft by San Francisco. He played for five teams – the 49ers, Philadelphia, Dallas, Buffalo and Cincinnati – over 16 seasons, registering 1,078 career catches for 15,934 yards and 153 TDs. He’s ranked second all-time in receiving yards and third in receiving TDs. Owens was a five-time first-team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowler.
