Terrell Owens flew home because he was too nervous about Hall of Fame
Don’t ever let Terrell Owens tell you he doesn’t care about the Hall of Fame.
Owens was not in Minnesota when Pro Football Hall of Fame president David Baker went knocking on doors to notify players of their induction into Canton. Why? According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press’ Chris Tomasson, Owens flew home to California because he got nervous about whether he would make the Hall.
I asked Hall of Fame president David Baker about Terrell Owens. He said he got nervous and flew home to California from Minnesota and he’s now flying back after making the Hall. “He flew home yesterday. He told some of my staff. I was not available.’’

Owens was one of seven people to make the Hall as part of the Class of 2018. He joins Randy Moss, Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher, Brian Dawkins, Bobby Beathard, Jerry Kramer and Robert Brazile in what is one of the best classes ever.
Though Owens wasn’t in Minnesota for the announcement, he did find time to get in a shot at a sports writer.
