Owens, now 44, spent 16 seasons in the NFL. The five-time all-pro spent time with the: San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals. In his 16 year career, Owens had 15,934 receiving yards which is ranked second most all-time on 1,078 receptions. Owens also hauled in 153 touchdowns which ranks third all-time in the NFL.
As Owens mentions above, he will be releasing his plans for his big day on a later date, but for now we'll all have to sit around and imagine just how great that induction speech could have been from a personality like Terrell Owens. He will forever be one of the all-time greats at the wide receiver position.
