Terrell Owens, the wide receiver who brought the Eagles within a eyelash of winning the Super Bowl in 2005, might have made it to the Hall of Fame in voting last week but his personality seems to have stopped him.

He didn’t get the votes, and at least one voter says that failure was due to Owens’ inability to work well with others.

“I’ll take you inside the room on this, and it was the second-longest discussion we had other than Eddie DeBartolo,” Gary Myers of the New York Daily News told The Dan Patrick Show. “The bottom line on T.O. is he was so disruptive.”

Asked by guest host Ross Tucker why the evaluation shouldn’t just stop at what happened on the field, Myers said “because I think the locker room is extension of that.”

Myers went on to say that Owens was a Hall of Fame-level player that “five teams couldn’t wait to get rid of.”

Research by nbcsports.com didn’t seem to support Myers’ contention. NBC said a source with knowledge of the situation said it was inaccurate to conclude that the entire room accepted the idea that Owens’ on-field achievements should be ignored because of the fact that Owens played for multiple teams and/or had a reputation for being a pain in the butt.

Myers said he believes that Owens will get in the Hall of Fame eventually.
