Terrell Owens in negotiations with the Edmonton Eskimos
The CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos moved quickly to call dibs on him when Owens began talking about continuing his playing career, adding T.O. to their negotiating list. This did not make news when it happened because who actually believed he would become an Eskimo?
Well, now Owens is interested.
According to 3downnation.com, Owens has invoked the 10-day clause that gives the Eskimos a window to offer him a deal or to release his rights. Owens made the request on July 14.
Agent Jason Staroszik reportedly is handling the matter on Owens’ behalf.
Interesting enough, if Owens joins the Eskimos, he could make his debut on Thursday, August 2, at home again against the Saskatchewan RoughRidgers, in a game that would start during the NFL’s annual Hall of Fame game.
Don’t expect T.O. to rake in the dough, the league minimum contract in the CFL is $54,000. But hey, it’s paycheck and Owens can finally show off that 4.4 40-speed on an actual football field.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/terrell-owens-in-negotiations-with-the-edmonton-eskimos/https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Terrell-Owens.jpg?fit=960%2C540&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Terrell-Owens.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NFLRecent PostsCFL,Edmonton Eskimos,NFL,Terrell OwensSince he played his last NFL game in 2010, Terrell Owens has been vocal about his ability to continue his playing career.
