Former Buffalo Bills WR Terrell Owens To Join IFL

New, comments

Remember when it was a reasonable conclusion to think that the Terrell Owens experiment would extend beyond one year for the Buffalo Bills? Two years after the fact, the star receiver - a year removed from NFL action - is joining the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.

Wow.

Owens spent the 2009 season with the Bills, hauling in 55 passes for 829 yards and five touchdowns while adding a rushing score. When the Bills promoted Buddy Nix to GM, many quickly speculated that Owens could stick around in Buffalo, given that Nix coached Owens collegiately when the two were together at Tennessee-Chattanooga.

Alas, that didn't come to fruition; as the Bills took the youth route at receiver, Owens played a year with Cincinnati, tore a ligament in his knee at some point during the lockout, and has been trying (and failing) to land an NFL gig since. Now he's playing in a football league I'd literally never heard of until today, where he was signed by former Dallas receiver Drew Pearson.

How do you remember the one-year Owens experiment in Buffalo?
