Former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens worked out for the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders in nearby South Pittsburg, Tennessee.

The workout, overseen by Roughriders head coach and general manager Chris Jones, was held Sunday at South Pittsburg High School and featured a handful of attendees, among them former UCF quarterback Justin Holman and former South Carolina defensive back Rico McWilliams.

“I know I’m truly blessed and I can still play the game,” Owens, 44, told the Chattanooga Times Free Press after the hour-plus workout. “What I did out there today is just a small little snippet of what I can do. I just appreciate Coach for the opportunity. I guess he wanted to assess and see where I am physically.

“It’s key when you’re trying out to put your best foot forward, and I’m very pleased with what they saw and what I did out there. To be inducted into the Hall of Fame and come back and play, why not me? I know I can do it; it’s just a matter of someone giving me the opportunity.”

“I think Johnny Manziel found out last week just how tough the competition is in our league,” Coach Jones said, referring to the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL quarterback’s CFL debut with Montreal on Friday, when he threw four interceptions.

If anyone can pull this off, it’s T.O. He’s a freak of nature, and can probably last a few games before he rubs everyone the wrong way.
