Even as it nears the end, Terrell Owens football career makes unique twists. This time around, he was cut by a team of which he was part-owner.
The former 49er, Cowboy, Eagle, Bill and Bengal was released by the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League on Tuesday.
Team owner Jon Frankel said a in statement to ESPNDallas.com: "Our fans are amongst the best in the league, and it is impossible to maintain a player when even our fans notice and comment on a player's lack of effort both on and off the field. We need to do what is best for this team, our fans and this community."
Owens, 38, had received a piece of the team along with a six-figure salary from the Wranglers, but Frankel said both were terminated. The former Pro Bowl wide receiver was refusing to play in two coming road games for the Wranglers his contract didnt require him to play every road game though the team is chasing a playoff berth. Frankel said Owens also failed to show for an appearance at childrens hospital in the area. Allen is located about 30 miles north of Dallas.
"It's disappointing and unfortunate," Frankel said, "but he could no longer be tolerated by the Wrangler organization."
Lets go out on a limb and say this wont help Owens latch on with another NFL team.
