Terrell Owens Still Hopes to Play in the NFL Again

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- He hasn't played in the NFL since 2010, but former wide receiver Terrell Owens is still looking for one more shot with an NFL team.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter has reported that Owens' agent, Jordan Woy, has been in touch with a "bunch of teams."

Owens, now 39-years-old, last played for the Cincinatti Bengals and had a productive year. In 14 games, Owens caught 72 passes for 983 yards as well as nine touchdowns.

But since then, he hasn't been able to land on an NFL roster. He was part of the Seattle Seahawks last season, but was cut during training camp.

Still, Woy thinks there's still a place for Owens in the NFL.

"I know if he goes out there and gets a shot, he'll make a team," Woy said. "We've talked to a lot of teams that have said he's a great talent, we're set as of right now, but if we have injuries, we may reach back out."

Owens' number are Hall of Fame worthy. In 16 seasons, Owens has 1,078 cathces for 15,934 yards and caught 153 touchdowns. But his attitude off the field has rubbed many the wrong way. His physical abilities were never an issue for Owens, but his interaction with teammates and coaches during his career has been.

Terrell Owens Cut by Seahawks

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- Terrell Owens was waived by the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. 

The 38-year-old wide receiver announced on his Twitter page that he will no longer be a member of the team.  He signed with the Seahawks on August 6.

"I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver," he wrote.

Terrell Owens Cut by Indoor Football League Team

MONICA M. DAVEY/AFP/Getty Images(DALLAS) -- Terrell Owens days as an Indoor Football League receiver are over. The Allen Wranglers cut Owens on Tuesday after the team said the former NFL wide receiver didn't plan to play in two upcoming road games with possible playoff implications.

Owens, who signed with the team in February, receiving a six-figure salary and an ownership stake in the team will also no longer have that stake after the team terminated that for violating the terms his contract.

"It's disappointing and unfortunate," Owner Jon Frankel told ESPNDallas.com on Tuesday, "but [he] could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization."

Owens was also a no-show for a scheduled local children's hospital event, which marked the end of the road for T.O. in Dallas.

"Our fans are amongst the best in the league, and it is impossible to maintain a player when even our fans notice and comment on a player's lack of effort both on and off the field," Frankel said in a statement released to ESPNDallas.com.

Terrell Owens Still Wants To Play In the NFL

MONICA M. DAVEY/AFP/​Getty Images(ALLEN, Texas) -- Even though he didn't play for anyone during the 2011 season, former NFL All-Pro wide receiver Terrell Owens still wants to play in the NFL. Whether anyone wants him, however, is a whole different subject.

The 38-year old Owens recently signed with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. Owens will have 50 percent ownership group of the team, and can earn as much as $500,000 with the Wranglers. Despite his new IFL fame, Owens still thinks he can play at a high level in the NFL.

"It was an opportunity for myself and my family," Owens said. "It's a way for myself to keep in shape. I haven't retired from the NFL. I want to play a couple more years. This right here will allow me to do that and assess where I am. I know I'm physically fit to play the game still."

After suffering a knee injury in the off-season, Owens worked his way back to make a return to the NFL, but never garnered the interest he thought he would get.
