Terrell Owens Will Sue Over Indoor Football League Firing
Terrell Owens is not taking his firing from the Allen Wranglers lightly. Yesterday we reported that the wide receiver was dropped from the team due to his bad performance, and absence at a charity event, but according to TMZ, he plans to take legal action against the team.
Sources close to the former NFL player told the website that the discrepancy over Owens' failure to appear with his teammates at a children's hospital is unfounded because the event was not mandatory. "Mr. Owens' legal team is addressing the details of the Wranglers release statement," said his rep in a statement. The rep also noted that the 38-year-old "played all games according to his contractual agreement and was proud to be part of the IFL and the Allen Wranglers," and wishes the team "all the best moving forward."
Getting kicked off the team is among a laundry list of unfortunate situations that have plagued the Alabama native, including nearly getting arrested for failing to pay child support.
