Terrell Owens has been released by indoor Allen Wranglers and loses ownership stake.
Yes, the sixth-leading receiver in NFL history Terrell Owens, has been released by the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League for what team owner Jon Frankel described as “lack of effort both on and off the field.”
Frankel also cited Owens’ refusal to play in two upcoming road games that were 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. “It’s disappointing and unfortunate,” Frankel said of releasing Owens, “but (he) could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization.”
The 38-year-old Owens didn’t get any NFL offers to play last season after surgery on his left knee. He had 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns while playing eight of Allen’s 11 games.
