The Terrell Owens saga took yet another interesting turn on Tuesday.
Owens is the NFL's second all-time leader in receiving yards, but after burning one bridge after another in the league, he cannot find a team willing to use a roster spot on him. And now he cannot even hold a job in the Indoor Football League.
In a statement released Tuesday, the Allen (Texas) Wranglers announced that Owens had been cut from the team and would lose his ownership stake in the franchise as well. Wranglers owner Jon Frankel cited Owens' refusal to play in two upcoming road games with possible playoff implications, as well as his no-show for a scheduled appearance at a local children's hospital, as reasons for the dismissal.
"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 of Owens, who was not contractually obligated to play in all of the team's road games. "We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community."
