The Buffalo Bills have signed controversial former Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens on a $6.5 million, one year contract.
Owen’s agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed the news, telling ESPN “When you have a great player like Terrell Owens, it shouldn’t take a very long time to get him signed. It was clear to us that Buffalo was the best opportunity and the team that wanted him the most and the team he wanted the most. They wanted to add a superstar to the mix.”
Owens brilliant form on the field, holding second position in the all time highest number of touchdowns, has been mixed with on and off-field controversy at every team he’s played with, including an attempted suicide in 2006.
Bills owner Ralph Wilson said in a written statement “We are happy to announce that we have signed Terrell Owens to our team. We all know of his tremendous ability and look forward to what he will bring to our offense. This is a very exciting day for the Buffalo Bills.”
