Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens said he’s still interested in making an NFL comeback at age 47.
Owens, who last played for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2010, told TMZ Sports in an interview released Thursday he recently ran a 4.4-second 40-yard dash.
“I’m not washed up,” T.O. said. “… Once you know how to ride a bike, you know, you don’t forget how to ride that bike. … There’s no doubt, 100 percent, that I can play in the National Football League today.”
Owens told TMZ he recently spoke with somebody in the NFL who told him to stay prepared in case his phone rings.
“With that conversation that I had, they asked me to keep myself in shape—anything can happen, and, so, that’s what I’m doing.”
While T.O.’s physical conditioning was always an advantage when he was terrorizing his opponents on a weekly basis in the late 1990s and early 2000s, trying to compete with players in their 20s when he’s a few years from 50 may be an incredibly difficult task…
