Terrell Owens blames NFL for not playing in league at 50

In Super Bowl 58, NFL players weighed in on the most unfairly hated quarterbacks in the league and shared their thoughts on the criticism that comes with playing that position. One of the players who spoke out was Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens, who believes that his own abilities and conditioning should not be dismissed if he wanted to try playing in the NFL again.

Owens stressed the importance of physical conditioning, stating that he would still be a valuable player if he were on a team, even though he is not in the right condition to play 70 snaps. He also criticized the NFL for what he believes was blackballing him after his last NFL catch in 2010 and drew a comparison to Colin Kaepernick, who protested during the national anthem in 2017.

Owens has been vocal about his exclusion from the NFL Hall of Fame, where he was not voted in until 2018 despite his impressive career stats. He compared his experiences to what he perceived as lesser players being inducted and played for Fan Controlled Football in 2022, scoring two touchdowns and proving his viability as a player. Unfortunately, Fan Controlled Football canceled its season in 2023, ending Owens’ plans to continue playing.
