As the Super Bowl 58 players weighed in on their thoughts on the most unfairly hated quarterback in the NFL, Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens spoke out about his own experiences with criticism and blackballing. Owens emphasized the importance of physical fitness, arguing that he would still be a valuable player if he were to return to the NFL despite not being in prime condition. He also criticized the NFL for what he believes was blackmail after his last catch in 2010 and compared himself to Colin Kaepernick, who protested during the national anthem in 2017.

Despite his impressive career statistics, Owens was not inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame until 2018. He compared his exclusion from the Hall of Fame to what he perceived as the induction of a lesser player and has been vocal about his process of induction. In 2022, Owens played for fan-controlled football, scoring two touchdowns and continuing to prove his viability as a player. Unfortunately, Fan Control Football canceled its 2023 season, ending Owens’ plans to continue playing.
