Terrell Owens released by Allen Wranglers, loses ownership stake
So much for the magical partnership between Terrell Owens and the Allen Wranglers. The Indoor Football League team released the receiver and pulled his ownership stake in the club because he violated his contract.
Team owner Jon Frankel reportedly said T.O. refused to play in two upcoming road games and also missed an appearance at a local childrens’ hospital.
“It’s disappointing and unfortunate,” Frankel said of releasing Owens, “but (he) could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization.”
It was only last December when Wranglers GM and former Cowboys receiver Drew Pearson was giddy about adding Owens to the team. T.O. officially joined the club in January, and had three touchdown catches in his February debut.
The Wranglers started off the season 5-1 but have gone 1-4 since then. Owens had 4 catches for 29 yards in last Saturday’s loss to the Wichita Wild.
