The age of players competing in the NFL just keeps getting older and older.
But if Terrell Owens comes back, he will be one of the oldest NFL players to ever be in the league.
That’s right – Terrell Owens could make a comeback in the NFL and you won’t believe what team he’s considering.
There is something wrong with our society’s older generations.
Usually, generations have their fun then step aside and let the next generation step up to the plate and take the mantle of running the show.
But someone must have forgotten to tell Baby Boomers or Generation X this is how it’s done.
Just think about it.
Freakin’ Mick Jagger with the Rolling Stones is still going on tour at the age of 79.

And in politics, we literally have Senators and members of Congress pushing 90 years old.
71 members of the Senate are over the age of 60 years old. The oldest is Feinstein at 87.

But the same goes for football.
Tom Brady is 45 years old and no signs of retirement are in the future for the old geezer.
But it looks like Tom Brady might not be the oldest member of the NFL if this legend rejoins the league.
Terrell Owens used to be a stud wide receiver in the NFL.
The man was a touchdown-catching machine with over 150 touchdowns in his career.

But Terrell Owens has been out of the league for nearly twelve years now.
And he even became an NFL Hall of Famer in 2018.
But his age, time out of the NFL, and Hall of Fame status aren’t keeping him from trying to make a run back into the league.
According to TO’s agent, Gregory D.L. Daniel, Owens is “in constant communication with Jerry Jones’ office over the last few days about the possibility of him returning to the Cowboys. Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small. He’s in outstanding shape. He looks no different than he did years ago. I watched him running routes full-speed with DeSean [Jackson] and he looked great. He didn’t drop a pass.”
After the Cowboys signed the fossil T.Y. Hilton, no one would really be in shock if they signed TO to the team too.
But for now it looks like the deal to get TO playing again is in limbo as Jerry Jones is playing hardball with his money.
Update: Despite the communication, Terrell Owens won't be signing with the #Cowboys at this time, according to a source.
The source tells me that one of the reasons it isn't happening is Owens is asking for more money from the team.
