The legendary NFL receiver explores the journey through his Hall of Fame career and how he became the infamous 'T.O.'
NFL Hall of Fame
During his 16-year NFL career, Terrell Owens established himself as one of the greatest wide receivers in the history of pro football. A five-time All-Pro, he ranks eighth in NFL history in all-time receptions (1,078) and third in both receiving yards (15,934) and receiving touchdowns (153). He was selected to six Pro Bowls during his career, and played for five different teams: the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. Born in 1973, Alexander City, Alabama, Owens played four sports (football, baseball, basketball and track) at Benjamin Russell High before enrolling at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He played football, basketball and ran track for the Moccasins, but it was on the gridiron where he truly excelled. In four seasons at UTC, Owens caught 144 passes for 2,320 yards and 19 touchdowns. He earned All–Southern Conference honors as a senior and was taken by the 49ers in the third round of the 1996 NFL draft. In seven years in San Francisco, Owens led the league in receiving touchdowns twice and the team in catches four times. In 2004, San Francisco traded him to the Baltimore Ravens, who then promptly dealt him to the Eagles. Owens only played two seasons in Philadelphia, but he caught 20 touchdowns and 21 games, and in 2005 helped lead the team to Super Bowl XXXIX, where Philly lost 24–21 to the New England Patriots. He caught nine passes for 122 yards in the loss. Owens signed as a free agent with the Cowboys in March 2008. In his first season in Dallas he again led the NFL in receiving touchdowns and was named to his final All-Pro team.
