Former NFL star Terrell Owens is considering suing the Indoor Football League Team that let him go, according to TMZ.com.

The Allen Wranglers, located outside the Dallas area, terminated Owens on Tuesday for missing team appearances and sitting out road games that were pivotal to the team making the playoffs. The report says that the Wranglers gave Owens a $50 buyout for the 50 percent ownership stake Owens had with the team.

"Mr. Owens' legal team is addressing the details of the Wranglers release statement," an Owens representative told TMZ. "(Owens) played all games according to his contractual agreement and was proud to be part of the IFL and the Allen Wranglers."

TMZ also reported that the team notified Owens in writing that he had to vacate the residence the team set him up with and was to also turnover a 2012 Jeep Cherokee the Wranglers provided him for transportation.
