Owens Receives Contract Offer From Chicago Rush Of The Arena League
No NFL teams may have shown up for Terrell Owens’ workout yesterday in California, but the former Pro Bowl wide receiver was extended a contract offer today. That offer, however, came from the Chicago Rush of the Arena football league.
"We feel that this is an ideal time to approach the future NFL Hall of Famer,” said Rush General Manager and President Gene Nudo in a statement on the team's website. “It would be a fantastic honor to add Terrell to our current roster for the 2012 season.”
The 37-year-old receiver is attempting to make an NFL comeback after suffering a season-ending ACL injury last year. In 14 games last season for the Cincinnati Bengals, Owens pulled in 72 receptions and recorded nine touchdowns. The once dominant Owens has had an accomplished career with nine 1000-yard recieving seasons. He is tied for second all-time in receiving touchdowns and second all-time behind Jerry Rice in receiving yards.
