Terrell Owens made just $4,342.86 during his short stint with the Seattle Seahawks, according to court documents filed in his child support case obtained by TMZ.

The Seahawks employed him for just 152 hours. That works out to $28.57 an hour.

Owens would have collected $925,000 had he made the team. But the Seahawks cut him after just two preseason games. He only caught two passes during those games.

Owens, who is currently a free agent wide receiver, is a six-time Pro Bowl selection. He holds or shares several NFL records.  He has 1,078 receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns — the second most in league history.

Owens made $80 million during his 14 years in the league. He said he’s broke after his business ventures went bad. That’s the reason he’s struggled to pay $44,600 in monthly child support payments to the four different mothers of his four children, ages 5-12.

Imagine. He made just $28.57 an hour with the Seahawks. What a fall from grace.

  • Fall from grace?...dont you actually have to actually HAVE some grace before you can fall from it? This dimwit has always been a self absorbed jerkoff...couldnt happen to a nicer guy. Its too bad that his children are robbed of a chance to live a comfortable life...way to go daddy!
  • So true, and what about wearing a CONDOM?? 4 kids with 4 women? common stupid women. and stupid him. feel for the kids..they have an arrogant dad!!
  • So true. What about a CONDOM ARROGANT fellow!! and those woman too!! Shame on them, they thought, let me trap this rich guy with a kid! i do feel for the children, NOT THERE FAULT the parents suck!!
  • i feel no pity for Mr Owens,he made 80 millions dollars over 14 years. Thats 5 mil a year and if he had bad agents and bad investmaent thats his fault. get out and get a real job.
  • And Pride always comes before the FALL.. I never wish bad upon any body and never have to ~karma remains to be the balancer of all, and then they must face their maker.. Seriously 4 kids and all different mothers.. do you think the baby momma's knew what they were doing? I'm sure they all loved their celebrity T.O. right to the bank. Back to another argument, there should be a cap on child support PERIOD. It would keep these skanks from running off and trapping these players in to 18+ year pymnts. Owens whos stats are the second most in the league also must hold the title of second most hated player in the league as well..
  • How could anyone feel sorry for someone that put at least 30 million in his pocket in 15 years and is broke today. What a waste of skin.
  • I remember a few years ago when TO was playing against Seattle and pulled a black sharpie out of his sock after scoring a touchdown against the Seahawks signing the ball and handed it to a fan in celebration in a showboating against the Hawk fans. And now the poor guy couldn't even make the Seahawks team as a backup receiver. I guess what goes around, comes around. Time to apply for a spot on Dr. Drew show now I guess.
  • Its too bad that the media/tabloits constantly follow around celebrities- totally ruining thier careers-All over the world-people f-up-Some more than others-If i recall at 1 time OUR OWN President F- up,But WE forgave him??? :)theres a lot of troubled players in the league -RIGHT NOW- but they are getting 2nd chances,Think of the things these people do GOOD-YOU JUST DONT SEE OR HEAR ABOUT IT-BECAUSE its not SHOCKING enough-its 1 thing to remember Terrell cant afford his Child support- if Terrell were to visit a childs hospital- -You ONLY remember him not going-HUH??? :) lol P.S -Its sad to know (Since i was born into the movie buis)That People actually Believe EVERYTHING they see an hear on t.v too funny--After all was'nt it HOLLYWOOD that landed on the moon 1st --:) :) :) LMAO.. P E A C E .
  • @imwithurmomnow------huh? such a long drawn out what did you say comment. But since you were "born into the movie buis" that certainly explains your obvious lack of education. Try try again
  • 44,600 a month for child support. no way. How about 6 payments of 44,600 and that kid should be taken care of until the age of 18 period. That number is being generous too.
  • I think the an even bigger tragedy is that some court thinks his kids need $11,000 A MONTH EACH. I have kids, there are very expensive, but 11K a month? Even with a nice college saving plan, that's excessive!
  • But it's not just for the kids. Its so the mommy doesn't have to work but can have all the bling, fancy clothes, and polished nails she wants
