Terrell Owens is the most talented Eagles wide receiver I've ever seen. His 2004 season in Philly was transcendent. If he was still playing in the NFL at the ripe ol' age of 48, he still may look like one of the most talented dudes around.
Owens suited up for the Zappers and then the Knights of Degen in the 2022 season of Fan Controlled Football, a professional 7-on-7 indoor football league. The Hall of Famer hasn't played in the NFL since 2010, but he's still bringing the speed.

I have some doubts about that exact timing and lean heavily on the "unofficial" part, but the guy still remains an absurdly great athlete.
Is Richard Rodgers ready to surrender No. 81 when Owens makes his NFL return? I'm only half-joking.
