Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who is 40 years old, led an Indy win the other night.
So, naturally, 41-year-old Terrell Owens thinks he could step in a help the Eagles, for whom he lit up the sky in 2004.
During a radio interview on Friday, the former receiver, who’s been out of the NFL for five years, was asked if he thinks he could help the 2015 Eagles — and T.O. gave the most T.O answer possible.
“Absolutely, yes,” Owens told WIP’s Mike & Ike Show. “No question, no question about that.”
If Owens watched Hasselbeck play on Thursday night, then T.O. is probably now completely convinced that he can still play. Age hasn’t appeared to slow down the 40-year-old Hasselbeck, who threw for 213 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts 27-20 win over Houston.
Owens doesn’t think age would slow him down either.
“I definitely could be playing right now, but based on my character — yeah, people can say, ‘Oh he’s 41.’ But I’m not your average 41-year-old and Ike you can attest to that,” Owens said. “And when I was on that football field, I felt like I was the best thing out there and it was due to how hungry I was and how dedicated I was.”
This isn’t the first time Owens has said he can still play and it probably won’t be the last. The former Cowboys, Eagles, Bengals, Bills and 49ers receiver said in September that he was trying to convince the Cowboys to bring him back.
