Still waiting for one more chance to prove his worth in the NFL seems to be taking a slightly windier road than usual for current NFL free agent Terrell Owens, as he has decided to make a move into the world of semi professional bowling.
Owens, whose NFL CV’s most up to date entry included being dropped by the Seattle Seahawks before the beginning of the 2012 season, is publicly believed to be broke and in fact heavily in debt. In what I really hope is not his latest attempt to make some money and be able to pay his multitude of baby momma’s their child support, has now taken part ownership of a five-man PBA bowling league team called the Dallas Strikers and entered in the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships.
According to Chris Partlow of Next Impulse Sports, Owens, when asked what made him decide to move into bowling replied:
“I have a lot of stuff going on right now, but there happened to be a break in my schedule. “I wanted to experience this tournament, and the experience was good. I’m really into bowling, and I like it a lot.”
At this point, Owens really needs to take what he can get, he’s heavily indebted and has no NFL prospects at the moment. According to the Seahawks last year after they released Owens, he still has great hands and it doesn’t really look like he’s lost a step, so the big question is, even after being left out in the cold by the NFL teams, is he still carrying on like a diva?
Hopefully, the move into bowling will humble him in time for one more chance at the NFL.
