Hall of Fame receiver Terrell Owens periodically has been trying to get back to the NFL for the better part of a decade. He won’t be among the initial wave of players available to be drafted by XFL teams.
After a report emerged on Friday that Owens would be part of the draft pool from which eight teams will select players in order to fill out 71-player rosters, a clarification resulted in a conclusion that Owens won’t be in the XFL.
Owens, who turns 46 in December, last played in a regular-season game in 2010. He spent some time on the roster of the Seahawks in 2012, but he didn’t make it to the final 53.
