Even though Terrell Owens is gainfully employed — finally, right? — the mercurial wideout thinks he’s not too long for the Indoor Football League, as he’s got plans to return to the professional level, ESPNDallas.com reports.

After being officially introduced by the Allen Wrangers on Wednesday, Owens, who will play receiver for the team, stated why took the gig, and made it clear we’ve not seen the last of him in the NFL.

“It was an opportunity for myself and my family,” Owens said. “It’s a way for myself to keep in shape. I haven’t retired from the NFL. I want to play a couple more years. This right here will allow me to do that and assess where I am. I know I’m physically fit to play the game still.”

In addition to catching passes — assuming that surgically repaired knee holds up — T.O. is also on board as 50-percent owner of the Texas-based Wranglers.

He has the potential to earn as much as $500,000, and definitely needs the dough considering his bevy of ongoing legal woes. Hey, money’s money, right?

“I feel like I have been put on this platform to allow people to tell these guys, ‘Be on top of your finances.’ Because they say they are doing one thing and they’re not and they’re doing another. Other than that, however many dollars I have lost, I can still make up those dollars. Other than that, it’s been a rough situation. It’s been a rough year. But overall I am still holding my head up high.”
