44-Year Old Terrell Owens Put on CFL's Edmonton Eskimos' Negotiation List

But if Owens just wants one more chance to play and show he's still got it even at 44 years of age, the CFL may be his best shot at doing so given the lack of interest from the NFL.

Owens ran a 40-yard dash in under 4.45 seconds yesterday at UCLA where he was timed by friends Julio Jones and others. The 44-year-old continues to hold out hope of a possible National Football League comeback.

It's been six years since the 44-year-old receiver, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, has stepped onto the football field.

The debate on the Green Zone had two opinions on the news NFL Hall of Famer Terrell Owens was added to the Edmonton Eskimos negotiation list.

"The fact that he's running around with Terrell Owens has the front office uneasy", D. Orlando Ledbetter, a Falcons beat writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, said on ESPN Radio in Charlotte.

Nonetheless, Ledbetter said he expects Jones to be present when training camp starts.

In a decade and a half south of the border, Owens hauled in over 1,000 passes for almost 16,000 yards and 153 touchdowns.
