Allen Wranglers to welcome Terrell Owens tonight
By Calvin Watkins
The professional football career of wide receiver Terrell Owens resumes Wednesday night when he'll be introduced as a co-owner/player for the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League.
The team has scheduled a free welcoming party for Owens starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Allen Events Center and it will last about an hour. Fans will be given popcorn as they walk in. The doors open at 6 p.m.
Why is Owens joining a minor league indoor football team?
Owens didn't play in the NFL last season, and he's using this to show NFL teams he can still play. He's also having financial issues, having lost most of his $80 million fortune as he's in litigation to get some of his money back.
As for the Wranglers, Owens told talk show host Wendy Williams of opposing players trying to hit him: "They can't hit what they can't touch."
