Terrell Owens clarified Wednesday on the ESPYS red carpet that he isn’t “actively seeking to get into the NFL” but would entertain the possibility, “as well as the CFL,” if an opportunity arises.

Owens also discussed his decision to forgo giving his acceptance speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, next month and instead make his speech at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Owens said Wednesday that he is being criticized based on his “reputation” and not his “character.”

Owens’ agent, Jason Staroszik, told ESPN’s Kevin Seifert on Tuesday that the 44-year-old wide receiver “100 percent” wants to play football again, saying “he wants to play in the NFL, but if he can’t, the CFL is the next-best option.” TO somehow manages to stay relevant. Good work Terrell. Not sure how you do it.
