Owens’ days in the NFL are over and the Eagles probably aren’t even considering signing the 42-year-old to save their receiving corps. But it’s impossible to say that wouldn’t be at least a little bit fun.
T.O. played for the Eagles in 2004 and 2005 before complaining his way out of Philadelphia. But despite his off-field antics, Owens was a game-changing player for the Eagles during the short time he was wearing midnight green. In only 21 games with the Eagles, Owens caught 124 balls for nearly 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns. The man could not be stopped and that didn’t change when he joined the Dallas Cowboys in 2006.
Owens hasn’t played a down in the NFL since 2010, but he has stated that he’s still yet to officially retire from the league and would be open to a return given the right situation. A reunion between Owens and the Eagles would be funny, but it won’t happen because it would be kind of stupid and ill-advised.
