The week after he was released by an Indoor Football League team, Terrell Owens made a high-profile release of his own Monday night.

Owens announced on his website that he had hired a new agent, which ends his longtime partnership with agent Drew Rosenhaus. Owens' new agent is Jordan Woy, of Willis & Woy Sports Group.

In the statement on his website, Owens made it clear that he wants a return to the NFL, where he hasn't played since 2010. He said he was "making changes in my life so I can continue my career as a professional football player."

It was important for me to hire someone who believes in my ability to help an NFL team and believes in me as a person.  I love the game of football and I know I can help a team.  I have had to go through some humbling times but I am more determined than ever to show a team that I can be a huge asset to them as a player and a team leader in the locker room.

With the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010, Owens caught nine touchdown passes and had 983 receiving yards. He is now reportedly demanding a public apology from the IFL's Allen Wranglers, as well as $160,000.

The end of the Owens-Rosenhaus relationship means we can take a look back at some of the more memorable moments the duo produced.

When Owens was with Philadelphia and mired in a contract dispute, he and Rosenhaus held a now-infamous news conference in the driveway of his New Jersey home. Rosenhaus answered questions while Owens did sit-ups. Then there was the "next question" press conference in 2005, after Owens had gotten into an altercation with former Eagle Hugh Douglas.
