Former Cowboys WR Drew Pearson just announced on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM that the Allen Wrangers of the Indoor Football League is close to signing Terrell Owens.
Allen Wranglers GM and former Cowboy Drew Pearson announces that the team is closing in on a deal with mercurial wide reiever Terrell Owens.
Pearson is the teamís GM. He said the deal is for salary and part-ownership of the team.
ďIt wonít be T.O. anymore. It will be Terrell Owens," Pearson said on Galloway and Company. "Weíre very close. John Franco, our owner, has been working on this for quite some time now. When he started, he felt there was maybe about a zero percent chance he could get it done, but through his persistent efforts and really wanting to make this happen, he has been able to make contact with their people. Now itís in a stage where he thinks itís at the point where itís about 70 percent done and close to being finalized, so weíll see how it shakes out from this point.
"But T.O. is interested. Itís a deal that includes salary and ownership, and I think thatís why heís attracted to it Ė the ownership aspect more than anything. We all could use the money. But the ownership aspect Ė what is T.O. going to do with his life after football, which is almost here and a reality to him. So heís probably thinking about that. He sees that as an opportunity."
