Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens wants to make a comeback with the Dallas Cowboys at age 49, Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday.
Owens’ Houston-based agent, Gregory D.L. Daniel, confirmed to SI that he has been in contact with the Cowboys and other NFL teams.
“We’ve been in constant communication with Jerry Jones’ office over the last few days about the possibility of him returning to the Cowboys,” Daniel said. “Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small. He’s in outstanding shape. He looks no different than he did years ago. I watched him running routes full-speed with DeSean (Jackson) and he looked great. He didn’t drop a pass.”
Owens, who has been out of the league since 2010, turned 49 on Dec. 7 and would become the oldest player in NFL history.
Quarterback and kicker George Blanda was 48 when he played his final season with the Oakland Raiders in 1976.

“He most recently ran a 4.5 40-yard dash, which was his warmup. He’s a legend,” Daniel said. “We want to make history and see him break these records. If anybody can do it, it’s him. His three Ds are desire, dedication and discipline. He embodies that every day, even running hills at 3 a.m. on Christmas morning.”
Owens played three seasons with Dallas during a 15-year career that saw him catch 1,078 passes for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns in 219 games with the San Francisco 49ers (1996-2003), Philadelphia Eagles (2004-05), Cowboys (2006-08), Buffalo Bills (2009) and Cincinnati Bengals (2010).
The five-time first-team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowl selection was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018. He is third on the all-time list in receiving TDs behind Jerry Rice (197) and Randy Moss (156).
