Former NFL superstar Terrell Owens was recently released form the IFL team he played for and had an ownership stake in.
TMZ was first to report that Terrell Owens is gearing up to sue his former team for wrongful termination. Following being released from the team for contract violations, the Wranglers insisted that Owens return the 2012 Jeep Cherokee he was given, sent him an eviction notice and wrote him a check for his ownership share in the team… a check totaling $50.
Wranglers owner John Frankel supported the teams’ decision to release Owens. He commented, “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. We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community.”
Terrell Owens accepted the position with the Wranglers in hopes he would spring back to the NFL, however; is numbers with the IFL were not exactly eye-popping. He caught 35 passes for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Don’t expect anyone from the NFL come knocking at his door any time soon.
