Terrell Owens is a free agent once again. The problem is after you get cut from a minor league football team isn’t it safe to say your career is over?
Owens was cut by the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football league today. He also loses a minority ownership stake he had in the team.
Owens signed with the Wranglers in February, receiving a six-figure salary and an ownership stake in the franchise located about 30 minutes north of Dallas. Owner Jon Frankel said Owens’ ownership stake has been terminated because he violated his contract.
Frankel cited Owens’ refusal to play in two upcoming road games that are critical to the Wranglers’ playoff hopes and Owens’ no-show for a scheduled appearance at a local children’s hospital as the breaking points in the team’s relationship with the receiver.
“Our fans are amongst the best in the league, and it is impossible to maintain a player when even our fans notice and comment on a player’s lack of effort both on and off the field,” Frankel said in a statement released to ESPNDallas.com. “We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community.”
Owens, who was not required to play in all of the Wranglers’ road games, could not be immediately reached for comment.
Owens caught 35 passes for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns in eight games for the Wranglers.
“It’s disappointing and unfortunate,” Frankel said of releasing Owens, “but [he] could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization.”
Damn. And he was just on Dr. Phil whining about his baby mommas.
