Terrell Owens Claims He Will Retire If He Doesn’t Play in 2013

Over the last couple of seasons, Terrell Owens has done everything in his power to attempt an NFL comeback as he hasn’t played in the league since the 2010 season when he was a member of the Cincinnati Bengals. The Seattle Seahawks were willing to give Owens a shot during training camp last year, but that clearly failed to work out as the wide receiver was released in the middle of preseason.

Now, it appears Owens is willing to accept that his time in the NFL may officially be over, but only if he fails to land with a team for the 2013 season.

That’s right, Owens claims that he will retire if he doesn’t end up playing this season–which makes sense considering he’s only a few months away from hitting the big 40 mark. When Owens was in the NFL, he was always praised for having one of the strongest work ethics–so one would think at least one team would consider giving him a shot at making the 53-man roster.

Unfortunately, the actions displayed by Owens throughout his career seem to have played a major factor in teams doing whatever it takes to avoid the controversial wideout. Only time will tell when it comes to whether or not Owens will receive one final shot at making it in the NFL, but with the way things have turned out over the last two seasons–all signs point to the potential future Hall of Fame wideout calling it a career by entering retirement.
