If Owens returns, he would be the oldest player in NFL history, surpassing George Blanda, who was under the Oakland Raiders’ center at age 48 in 1975.
«Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small,» Gregory DL Daniel told Sports Illustrated. «He’s in great shape. He doesn’t look any different than he did years ago. I watched him run sprint routes with DeSean [Jackson] and it looked great. She didn’t drop a pass.»
Daniel claims that Owens recently ran a 4.50 40-yard dash, «which was his warm-up.»
«He’s a legend. We want to make history and see him break these records. If anyone can do it, it’s him,» added Daniel. «His three D’s from him are desire, dedication and discipline. He embodies that every day, even running down hills at 3am on Christmas morning.»
