Terrell Owens Thinks He Can Still Stay Play In The NFL

Friday February 10th, 2012

Terrell Owens says he thinks he has the ability to still play in the NFL and that he has no plans on retiring, according to ESPN.

“I haven't retired from the NFL. I want to play a couple more years. This right here (playing for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League) will allow me to do that and assess where I am. I know I'm physically fit to play the game still,” he told ESPN.

Owens was signed by the Wranglers in a deal that gave him 50% ownership of the team, and he can make as much as $500,000 this season. Owens, who turned 38 in December, did not play in the NFL last season. He had 72 catches for 983 yards in 2010 for the Cincinnati Bengals, then underwent surgery for a torn ACL in April 2011. He was medically cleared to play in 2011 but remained unsigned.
