Terrell Owens: Not Done Yet

Wide Receiver Terrell Owens had surgery to repair a torn ACL this offseason. TO is now 37 years old and many analysts/writers have been speculating on a possible retirement.

But I don't think that's going to happen.

TO is not one of those stars whose going to hang up his cleats on anyone else's terms. He may have zero impact, but he's not leaving until he absolutely can't play any longer.

This is the same athlete who came back from a fractured fibula and sprained ankle in December only to start in the Super Bowl weeks later while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles. His performance: 9 receptions for 122 yards. MVP caliber if his team had been on the winning side. The Eagles fell to the New England Patriots by three.

TO is older now, so it obviously won't be as easy to come back. But he will. The six-time Pro Bowl selection is second in NFL history receiving yards and third in touchdowns. Plus, he had 72 catches for 983 yards just last season while playing in Cincinnati.

I don't know who he'll play for in 2011 or how productive he will be, but we haven't seen the last of TO in the League.

Get your popcorn ready. It's gonna be a show.
