To nobody’s surprise Terrell Owens is broke. Between T.O. and Ochocinco, he always seemed like the financially responsible one. He has made over $80 million bucks over his career and when you look at the numbers, he is probably one of the top five wide receivers of all time. (1,078 receptions, 15,934 yards, 153 touchdowns).
T.O. is also depressed and does not understand why nobody would give him a contract. He’s “In Hell” without football. I have a few ideas why nobody signed you, T.O. and it has nothing to do with a knee injury. We saw you go for 9 catches for 122 yards on a broken leg in Super Bowl XXXIX, we know you are tough and a fast healer.
Look at Jerry Rice, clearly the Greatest Wideout of All Time. Did he ever throw not one but two quarterbacks under the bus, calling one fat and out of shape after a loss in the Super Bowl and accuse the other of being gay? Did he ever do shirtless situps in his driveway for attention? Did he ever overdose on pills? Did he ever say “I love me some me”? Nope. He worked his ass off every day and was universally loved and respected. He played out his career with honor and now works for ESPN, where they call him The G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time). You could have been right there with him.
Side Note: One thing you have in common is starring on reality shows, except Rice won Dancing with the Stars and you stood there while two skanks yelled at each other on The T.O. Show.
Why would anyone want you on their team? Do you think a team with a developing young quarterback wants you killing their confidence by throwing them under the bus? Do you think any veteran quarterback wants to be yelled at for overthrowing you? Do you think any coach wants you criticizing their play calling to the media? You can’t blame anyone. You did this to yourself. You aren’t asking for a second chance, it’s more like your twelfth, and you’re lucky you are so damn gifted or it would have been a lot less than that.
You turned your career into a sideshow, pissed off a,lot of people, and are looked at as a spotlight hogging asshole. If I were you T.O. I would teach the young receivers of today what NOT to do. They could learn a lot from your experiences. Start with that clown DeSean Jackson.
