Terrell Owens: 'I could be a 1,000-yard receiver right now'
Tuesday January 13th, 2015

Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens hasn't played in the league since 2010, but the NFL's second-leading all-time pass catcher says he might not be done with football. 

"I haven't retired," Owens told SI Now host Maggie Gray while teasing a potential comeback, noting that he's spent recent offseasons training with current NFL players and keeping in shape in case a team had a need at wide receiver. 

Owens went on to guarantee "an 1,100 to 1,200-yard" season if he were in the NFL right now. 

"People see me and they've see me train the last couple of years. I've trained with a lot of guys prior to this season, and you know, guys like Antonio Cromartie and some guys from the Jets, and they're like, 'Dude. Why aren't you playin'? You should be playin,'" Owens said.

The 40-year-old 'sharpie' legend's most recent NFL comeback came two seasons ago with the Seahawks when the team signed him to its preseason roster, but cut Owens before the regular season started.

Owens amassed 968 yards as a 37 year old during his last full season in 2010 as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.
