Terrell Owens ‘ Hall of Fame wait is over: WR selected in third year of eligibility
MINNEAPOLIS – Terrell Owens’ Hall of Fame wait is finally over.
The former 49ers, Eagles, Cowboys, Bengals and Bills receiver was elected to the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday after being snubbed the past two years.
Owens’ on-field credentials made him appear like a lock for Canton, with 1,078 career receptions, 15,934 yards and 156 touchdowns in his 16-year career. But Owens’ case was complicated, given his contentious relationships both in
the locker rooms where he played and with the media that covered him.
“He should be in. Period,” Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley told USA TODAY Sports this week about his former teammate.
