Is Terrell Owens Making A Comeback To Football?
Dawkins was a teammate of Owens on the 2004 Eagles team that reached the Super Bowl. Owens had been critical of the Hall of Fame voting process, but Dawkins hopes Owens can let go of the grudge.
“I’m happy for him, I really am,” Dawkins told reporters Saturday, via Yahoo. “I hope he can take this and just enjoy it, and I guess call off the dogs a little bit.”
Joining Owens in the 2018 Hall of Fame Class were fellow receiver Randy Moss, linebackers Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher and Robert Brazile, former Packers guard Jerry Kramer, former Eagles and Broncos safety Brian Dawkins and former NFL general manager Bobby Beathard. When Hall of Fame president David Baker, who knocked on the hotel room doors of the other Hall of Famers, called Owens to tell him he had been voted in, Baker said Owens displayed humility.
“He was very calm, but very respectful. I would even say kind of humbled,” said Baker.
