Terrell Owens, was by the bell, which means no jail time for non-payments of his child support bills.
After rehabbing a knee injury and entering into a contentious relationship with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, Seattle Seahawks brought the player into their Renton, Wash., facility on Monday to see what the six-time Pro Bowler had left in the tank.
When Shutdown Corner caught up with Owens in early July at Travelle Gaines’ training facility in Los Angeles, he seemed relaxed and confident regarding his recovery from injury, and his eventual return to the league.
“I’ve been trying to keep in shape since I had my knee surgery, I started my rehab in Carson [Calif.] with Athletes Performance, and Travelle was very instrumental in that process,” Owens said. “Along with some of the guys in Pensacola, Florida. But I developed a great relationship with Travelle, and we’re going to continue that here at Performance Gaines.”
The NFL baller struggled to accelerate and get separation, and seemed a step slow through the process. Perhaps a healthier Owens will have more to give.
“I know how the business works,” Owens told Shutdown Corner. “I’m just hoping that someone can give me a chance. I’m just going to continue to work hard, training camp is going to come up here pretty soon, there are going to be injuries, and things of that nature. I know that there are some teams that need a veteran receiver — whether it’s a No. 1, 2 or 3 — I feel like I can fill all those voids.”
He better not mess up, or else its the CHILD SUPPORT PRISON with inmates fighting for that behind!
