Terrell Owens is returning to professional football to catch more passes. Owens, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018, is joining the Fan Controlled Football league for its second season. Furthermore, he wants Colin Kaepernick to join him as well.
“I never really retired,” Owens said recently. “This is just an opportunity to partner with Fan Controlled Football and what they’re doing, giving guys an opportunity to really play football. And then, hey, you never know. This could be a springboard for those guys to either go to the CFL, NFL, whatever the case may be.”
Terrell Owens is now urging Colin Kaepernick to join forces with him in the Fan Controlled Football league. According to TMZ, he thinks it could ultimately help the QB in his goal to get back to the NFL. He believes the league’s platform could benefit Kaepernick greatly if the former 49ers star would suit up for a few games.
“I feel like he could come in and really use this to really sharpen his skill set. Especially because there’s some questions about him not playing for such a long time.”
Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016 season. Kaepernick being in the league would obviously give owners and GMs another chance to see the QB in a competitive setting. Owens thinks it could actually improve the 33-year-old’s game too.
Owens says because the FCF is played on a much smaller field, Kaepernick’s decision-making and accuracy could improve in a short amount of time in the league. On the other hand, Kaepernick is doing everything he can to get another chance at the NFL.
The FCF is slated to begin its season later this month. Keep following Thirsty for more update.
