Is Terrell Owens Making A Comeback To Football?

Hall of Famer Terrell Owens is still in amazing shape, and he apparently hasn’t given up on a potential return to professional football. Owens last played in the NFL in 2010, though he spent 20 days with the Seahawks in 2012. Owens has remained adamant that he could still perform at a high level if a team gave him the chance, however, claiming that he could still deliver “800 to 1,000 yards” a season in the right system back in 2016. Last year, Owens said it was a “joke” that he wasn’t on the field.
When the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame class was announced Saturday, there was one noticeable absence. On Tuesday, Owens shared some footage from a workout in L.A., and called out Odell Beckham Jr. and Dez Bryant to come train with him.

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.
