During Super Bowl 58, several athletes were asked who they believe gets the most unfair amount of criticism as an NFL quarterback. Terrell Owens, a Hall of Fame receiver who is still in excellent shape at the age of 50, was one of those questioned. He attributes his ability to maintain his body to the conditioning regimen he follows and believes that he could still play in key situations for a team if given the chance.
Owens has played for several teams throughout his career and has impressive statistics, but he hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010. He believes that this was due to the league “blackballing” him and comparing his situation to that of Colin Kaepernick, a former NFL quarterback who protested during the national anthem and was not given another opportunity to play. Despite this, Owens was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2018, three years after he became eligible. However, he skipped the induction ceremony and instead delivered his speech at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga. In 2022, Owens played for Fan Controlled Football, an indoor league, and proved to be a successful player once again. Unfortunately, the league canceled its 2023 season.
