Terrell Owens still has it.
The bombastic receiver, who last played in the NFL 12 years ago, caught a touchdown pass on his Fan Controlled Football League debut Saturday night and went into the corner of the end zone to land a throw from Laquan Horton.
Owens plays for the Zappers, a team owned by Vikings running back Dalvin Cook and Mets pitcher Trevor May. His score, scored on the last play of the game, didn’t affect the outcome, although it’s amazing to see Owens on a football field at 48.
The FCF is a spring football league trying to gain a foothold where fans control a seven-a-side game and vote on offensive plays in real-time. There are also a number of gimmick rules, including eliminating kicks and jabs.
Owens has suggested a return in the past, speaking about the Canadian Football League in 2018 and saying he could “absolutely” replace Antonio Brown at the Buccaneers after Brown left the team mid-game this season.
Of course, such a scenario would be a step beyond the Fan Controlled Football League, and it borders on the impossible to say that Owens would even be able to play in the CFL, let alone the NFL. However, he clearly still has some skills, and he’s using them.
