Terrell Owens blames NFL for not playing in the league at 50


Feb 11, 2024

At the Super Bowl 58, an array of athletes were asked who they feel gets the most unfair amount of criticism as an NFL quarterback. Terrell Owens, a Hall of Fame receiver, still looks like he’s fit enough to play in the NFL even at 50 years old. He attributes this to the condition in which he keeps his body, and qualifies that he would be able to play in key situations for a team if given the chance to do so. Owens has played for several teams and has impressive stats, but he hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010, something he attributes to the league “blackballing” him. He has also compared his situation to that of Colin Kaepernick, a former NFL quarterback who protested during the national anthem and was not given the opportunity to play again. Owens was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2018, three years after he was eligible. He skipped the induction ceremony and instead delivered his speech at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga. In 2022, Owens played for Fan Controlled Football, an indoor league, and still proved to be a successful player. However, the league canceled its 2023 season.
