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.Google+
