Terrell Owens coming out of retirement at age 48

Terrell Owens has been trying unsuccessfully for years to convince NFL teams that he can still contribute, but he has finally found a league willing to give him a shot.

Owens has agreed to a deal to play in the Fan Controlled Football league, according to a report from Frank Pingue of Reuters. The Hall of Famer is expected to join the Zappers, which is the same team Johnny Manziel recently revealed he will play for again this year.

Owens, 48, is said to be in excellent shape. The Hall of Famer reportedly plans to wear a microphone and helmet camera during games. He will also provide content for streaming partner FuboTV by interviewing other players when he isn’t playing.

FCF is a 7-on-7 league played on an indoor 50-yard field. The league is expanding from four to eight teams for its second season.

Owens hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010, but he tried to convince one team to sign him just earlier this year. A league like the FCF definitely makes more sense for him at this point, even if he thinks he is still worthy of the big show.
