NFL Rumors: Terrell Owens in Talks to Come Out of Retirement

49-year-old Terrell Owens is looking to make NFL history as the polarizing wide receiver is trying to come out of retirement and return to the league. Owens would become the oldest player in NFL history and it's likely going to come down to what kind of interest Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys have in reuniting with T.O.

Owens has reportedly reached out to the Cowboys to see if a reunion could be in the works. Dallas has been trying for weeks to add some depth at wide out but haven't been able to land anyone just yet. They were close to signing Odell Beckham Jr, however his return date was in question and Jones and the Cowboys didn't want to take the gamble.

Owens agent Gregory D.L Daniel has confirmed T.O has been in contact with the Cowboys, among other teams as well. T.O is in game shape as he's been constantly training, and ready for action should a GM come calling. Daniel had this to say about his client's intentions:

We've been in constant communication with Jerry Jones' office over the last few days about the possibility of him returning to the Cowboys. Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small. He's in outstanding shape. He looks no different than he did years ago. I watched him running routes full-speed with DeSean and he looked great. He didn't drop a pass. He most recently ran a 4.5 40-yard dash, which was his warm-up. He's a legend. We want to make history and see him break these records. If anybody can do it, it's him. His three Ds are desire, dedication and discipline. He embodies that every day, even running hills at 3 a.m. on Christmas morning.

Owens was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. He's caught 1,078 passes for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns during his 15 season career.
