Terrell Owens Officially Joining Allen Wranglers of Indoor Football League
Three weeks after GM Drew Pearson announced that the Allen Wranglers were close to signing Terrell Owens, the receiver made the announcement official.
“I’m headed back to Texas. IFL, here I come. Allen, Texas, here I come,” he said in a video linked on his Twitter account. “Allen, Texas … I’ll see you in the end zone.”
T.O.’s tweet linking to the video aptly said “Getcha popcorn ready.”
Owens will be a wide receiver and co-owner for the Indoor Football League franchise.
“[Owens] has an ownership stake,” co-owner Jon Frankel said. “This is a business decision. I’m glad everybody looks at the players’ aspects. I can’t believe T.O. will come out of that tunnel for the Allen Wranglers.”
T.O. played 15 seasons in the NFL but was unable to land a job this season after recovering from knee surgery. He’s apparently ready to play in the team’s February 25th season opener.
