The more information that comes out, the more we realize the Allen Wranglers must really dislike Terrell Owens. Similar to what happened toward the end of Owens’ career with a number of NFL teams, it sounds like the receiver quickly wore out his welcome with the Indoor Football League. The Wranglers may have released T.O. earlier this week and demanded he give back the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee that they provided him with, but at least they had the decency to buy back his ownership stake in the company — for $50.

As TMZ.com pointed out, T.O. had a 50 percent stake in the company. The Wranglers are no Pittsburgh Steelers, but I’m guessing the team is worth more than $100. In all likelihood, the incredibly insulting “buyout” is another way for the Wranglers to show that they believe T.O. violated his contract by skipping two road games and missing a charity event.

As we told you on Tuesday, Owens’ lawyers are looking into details of the release. T.O.’s initial contract with the team stated that he was only required to play in home games and that visiting teams were responsible for compensating him for road games. Unless there is more than meets the eye, Owens could have a legitimate case for wrongful termination. If nothing else, the $50 check simply reinforces how much the Wranglers grew to dislike T.O.

  • When will the TO bashing stop?! Leave this man alone. There is much more to this story than being reported.
  • He is a moron he was trying to prove he can still play to NFL teams.

    He proved he is still a child, no team will touch him. I hoped TO would be back but not after all this.

    REMEMBER when the Bengals finished 10-6 won division signed him they started like 1-9 and TO was on the news bashing his Owner, HC, and QB. No player is worth that ATTN even if he was still 30 and 40 and yes he will be 40 by the time the season ends...
