Get Your Popcorn Ready: Terrell Owens Wants To Be A Buc

Videos by OutKick

In the unlikely event the Tampa Bay Buccaneers miss the theatrics that Antonio Brown often brought to their squad, they have a fill-in waiting in the wings: 48-year-old Terrell Owens, who just so happens to be well-versed in the finer points of receiving the football and creating drama.

“I know I can do it… Let me go out there and show you,” Owens said on the Getcha Popcorn Ready with T.O. and Hatch podcast.

Tampa is, of course, down a playmaker (and a headache) since Brown abruptly left the team mid-game on Sunday. Owens, who once held an AB-like press conference from his driveway — wearing no shirt but doing plenty of sit-ups — hasn’t played in the NFL since 2010, but he still believes he can contribute for the defending champs.

“If you think about where they are in the season, they don’t need me for a 16-game season,” Owens said via his podcast. “Three to four games at the max. So, yes, I feel like I can go in, I can contribute at a high level and can be productive.”

Owens already has a bust in Canton, OH and 1,078 career catches, but apparently he wants another chance at a ring.

“We are supposed to be a country of second, third chances. Look at the chances AB had,” Owens added. “Who’s to say that I can’t go out there and do it?”

T.O. — who is two years shy of his fiftieth birthday — insists he’s ready to run around with players half his age.

“I’ve been working out the course of this entire season. There was an owner that reached out to me at the beginning of the season and told me to keep myself in shape just in case anything happens, and I have done that.”

The thought of watching Tom Brady toss a 48-year-old T.O. the ball in a playoff game would no doubt be appointment viewing. But it’s safe to say, there’s a better chance of Antonio Brown paying his chef, with interest, than of Owens again cooking NFL defensive backs.

  1. I’d be interested to see a TO workout for teams at 48 years old. I want to see him run a 40. I would think he’s lost a step or two and some quickness, but the guy always took legendary care of his body. I’m fairly sure I recall he used to sleep in a hyperbolic chamber with Dallas. He’s a physical freak for sure. Probably still strong as an ox, would manhandle DBs, and catch everything his way, but I’d want to see the speed and quickness first.

  2. If “we” have Blonde Jokes … and Polak Jokes … and Little Moron Jokes … and … and … why not NFL WR Jokes?
    Is there any subset in all of Sports that is more predictably stereotypically Diva Dumb ? … “A rabbi, a blonde and an NFL WR walk into a bar ……”

  3. Well now when you talk about mental head case diva distractions no one can hold a candle to T.O. He was an extremely productive player literally one of the very best WR’s to ever play the game, but he got kicked off of every team he played for. I mean can you realize what kind of headache you have to be when you’re capable of putting up 1500 yards and a team says you’re not worth it?
