Breaking the Barrier: Hall of Fame Receiver Terrell Owens Speaks Out on Unfairly Criticized Quarterbacks and Blackballing in the NFL

Terrell Owens blames NFL for not playing in league at 50

Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens has weighed in on the topic of unfairly hated quarterbacks in the NFL, sharing his thoughts on the criticism that comes with playing that position. In an interview, Owens stressed the importance of physical conditioning and criticized the NFL for what he believes was blackballing him after his last NFL catch in 2010. He drew a comparison to Colin Kaepernick, the former NFL quarterback who protested during the national anthem in 2017.

Owens has been vocal about his induction into the NFL Hall of Fame, not being voted in until 2018 despite his impressive career stats. He compared his experiences and exclusion from the Hall of Fame to what he perceived as lesser players being inducted. In 2022, Owens played for Fan Controlled Football, scoring two touchdowns and continuing to prove his viability as a player. Unfortunately, Fan Controlled Football canceled its season in 2023, which ended Owens’ plans to continue playing.
