Could T.O. be making an NFL comeback?

By Gino Terrell

Voters chose not to enshrine Terrell Owens in the Hall of Fame, again.

Appearing as a finalist for the second consecutive year once again the outspoken wide receiver was snubbed from a Hall of Fame induction. His career statistics speaks volumes with 1,078 catches, 15,934 receiving yards and 153 receiving touchdowns. What was even more impressive was seeing his skills on display along with his flashy dances on the gridiron, which made him a fan favorite. After the announcement fans, former teammates and Owens took to Twitter their frustration with the snub.

In the aftermath of it all, Owens appreciates his fans and claims the snub will not change what he has accomplished.

It also didn’t stop T.O. from bloviating about the dance moves he put on display during his Super Bowl commercial with music icon Justin Beiber. Earlier on Super Bowl Sunday he also participated in a charity bowling event, the PBA Super Clash on ESPN with actor Quinton Aaron (The Blindside), NFL athlete Devin Hester and his former teammate Chad “Ochocinco”Johnson.

One positive this snub may have is the fact he would still be eligible to play next season. An option Owens is not ruling out.
