Terrell Owens: I could ‘absolutely’ help Philadelphia Eagles right now

Saturday October 10th, 2015

The Philadelphia Eagles rank 25th among NFL teams in passing offense, and former Eagles wideout Terrell Owens thinks he can help change that.

Speaking on the 94WIP Mike & Ike Show on Friday, the 41-year-old said he could “absolutely” assist the squad.

“Absolutely, yes,” Owens said. “No question, no question about that sir.”

“I definitely could be playing right now,” he added. “But, based on my character—yeah, people can say, ‘Oh he's 41.’ But I’m not your average 41-year-old ... when I was on that football field, I felt like I was the best thing out there and it was due to how hungry I was and how dedicated I was.”

Owens had 1,078 catches during his 16-year NFL career, piling up 15,934 total yards. He’s a nominee for the NFL Hall of Fame in 2016.
