article imageOp-Ed: Terrell Owens cut by IFL

By Akeem Smith
May 30, 2012 in Sports
Terrell Owens was cut yesterday from the indoor football league team, the Allen Wranglers. Owens was a no-show for children's hospital appearance as well as refusing to play in two road games with playoff implications.
This is just another sad chapter in the life that is Terrell Owens. The owner of the football team John Frankel had this to say in response to the release:
"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. "We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community."
Owens, who was trying to make a comeback to the NFL, has now put that in jeopardy also. Is there any team out there that is willing to take a chance on a 38-year-old wide receiver who's coming off a major knee surgery just over a year ago? Also with this next stunt Owens has also proved that he still thinks everything is about him. This just might be the end to what should be a hall of fame career but is now most surely tainted with repeated on and off the field antics. I don't believe any team will take a chance on him. So what's next for Owens?
Owens is second all-time in the NFL for receiving yards and touchdowns and should be a first ballot Hall of Famer. But due to the way in which his career has ended and how far he continue to falls into obscurity; hall of fame voters just might shy away from Owens. The next question we must ask ourselves is what life after football will mean to Terrell Owens. Owens who has always been in the spotlight and the center attention could struggle. I'm personally scared for the man and hope he finds something to help with this transition. One thing is for sure no one ever questioned T.O's football knowledge, so maybe a career as an analysis could fit especially with a personality that is Terrell Owens.
