Terrell Owens raised a lot of eyebrows with a recent appearance on "Dr. Phil," where he discussed his personal and financial issues. Owens has not played in the NFL since 2010, but he remains adamant that he wants to return to the league.
Eric Schmoldt at Sports Radio Interviews transcribed Owens' interview with 790 The Zone in Atlanta where he talked about his appearance on Dr. Phil and his continued attempts to return to the NFL.
What were your thoughts after your in-season workout last year where nobody showed up?:
"I kind of anticipated that. Getting into the nature and the time of the workout, at the end of October ... it wasn't discouraging to me. I just wanted to put out there considering where I was and the timing of post-surgery, just to give people an idea of where I was. ... Now I'm far in better shape and further along in my rehab process."
Owens also spoke about his past dealings with teammates in his younger years and whether he has any regrets.
If you could do it all over again with your quarterback relationships in the past, would you change anything?:
"I've always said that there are things and situations that I would have done differently when it comes to those situations. To say I'm black-balled, that's a strong topic. I really don't want to take it there. My thing is, just let me have an opportunity to go out on my own terms. ... I know I can still play. I'm working out every week. ... The things that have happened throughout the course of my career, I was younger then and I made mistakes. We all do."
Owens continues to play in the Indoor Football League and is still available to any team that wants to sign him.
