Terrell Owens Biography - The Beginnings

Terrell Owens was born on December 7, 1973 in Alexander City, Alabama. He was a four-sport athlete in high school, where he played football, baseball, basketball and track and field. Owens never enjoyed football as much as basketball, but when he was offered a football scholarship from the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, he jumped at the chance. At UTC, Terrell Owens was a starter on both the school's basketball and football teams - and also anchored the school's 4x100 relay team. After four years at UTC, Terrell Owens was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the third round of the 1996 NFL Draft.

Terrell Owens Biography - Pro Bowl Reciever

Terrell Owens was thrilled to be drafted by the 49ers because it gave him a chance to play with his idol, the legendary Jerry Rice. In his fifth season with the 49ers, Owens scored 13 touchdowns and replaced Rice as the team's top receiver. After eight years in San Francisco, Owens was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, who needed to add a deep threat to their offense. In his first year with the Eagles, Terrell scored 14 touchdowns before breaking his ankle with two games left in the season. He returned from his injury, against doctors' orders, to play in Super Bowl XXXIX. In 2005, Terrell Owens soon wore out his welcome with the Eagles. He skipped the start of training camp because of a contract dispute and was suspended by the team half way through the season for fighting with teammates and training staff. He signed a $25 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys, one of the Eagles' biggest rivals, in March 2006.
