Terrell Owens Announces He's Joining IFL's Allen Wranglers

Terrell Owens is, apparently back in football. On Wednesday evening, Owens hopped on something called beeyoo to release a video to his fans, announcing his next career move. But he won't be in a Dallas Cowboys uniform, or any other NFL uniform this time around. Owens is joining the Allen Wranglers of the IFL.

Here's the video, in which Owens implores fans to "get your popcorn ready." Popcorn is a big deal in the arena world, apparently.

For Owens, the fall from grace has been astounding. Once a supreme physical specimen with all the talent in the world, Owens' career has slid all the way down to the point where the only party interested in his services hails from a small Texas town and operates out of the IFL.

Reports of the Allen Wranglers' interest in Owens have been swirling for quite some time, with nobody quite sure whether this was for real or a publicity stunt. With Owens announcement that "it's official" on Wednesday, we've got our answer, and it's still somewhat surprising.

If nothing else, this gives the Wranglers an easy way to draw in fans. But who knows how well Owens will hold up -- remember, he tore his ACL during the last offseason -- as he tries to hang on to his player career until the bitter end.


Terrell Owens' Workout Attracts No NFL Teams, According To Report

Free agent Terrell Owens has been rehabbing a torn ACL suffered six months ago and hopes to play in the NFL this season. He's conducting a workout on Tuesday in California and was able to attract....zero NFL teams. Indeed, NFL Network's Lindsay Soto no NFL teams were in attendance.

There's no word on who, if any teams will be interested in Owens, provides he demonstrates he's healthy. The Titans were one team rumored to be interested, according to Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus. But the Titans have said publicly they're not sending anyone to the workout and probably aren't interested.

The real question is whether any NFL team will sign the 37-year old receiver. He had over 70 catches and 900 yards with the Bengals last season so physically it seems he can still do it but teams wonder if T.O. is worth the distraction he brings off the field (and, to be fair, he wasn't much of a distraction in Cincinnati last season).

Time will tell if some team gets desperate at receiver and needs to add someone like Owens.


Terrell Owens Could Make Comeback With Tennessee Titans, According To Mike Munchak

Terrell Owens has had quite an interesting off-season as the All-Pro wide receiver went to Korea for knee surgerypretended he retired during an interview with ESPN and was recently rushed to the hospital for reasons unbeknownst to the general public. After all of that, however, the Tennessee Titans are still considering adding Owens once he is healthy according to head coach Mike Munchak.

Muchak did his local radio show earlier in the week and the topic of wide receivers was brought up in the wake of the season-ending injury to Kenny Britt just a few weeks ago. The Titans head coach revealed that he was interested in trading for Brandon Lloyd, which makes sense, and that the team's next option might be to take a look at Owens.

"That's something that at some point when (Owens') health is better and he can pass a physical - people thought the midpoint of the season, maybe - he might be a guy that may be able to to work out to prove where he's at," Munchak said. "So of course us, or whoever else, is going to take a look, just like we have with other free agents, to see what kind of shape he's in."

As Pro Football Talk's Michael David Smith notes, this apparently means that the 3-2 Titans are in win-now mode -- a spot not many onlookers thought they might be through six weeks of an NFL season that didn't look promising this summer.
