Earlier this week, the Indoor Football League Allen Wranglers cut ties with former NFL star Terrell Owens. It is now being eported that T.O. is lawyering up and considering taking legal action against the Allen Wranglers over breach of contract, according to TMZ.com.
It was revealed that the Allen Wranglers might’ve signed Terrell Owens as a publicity stunt. Bad move.
The Wranglers severed ties with Owens on Tuesday for missing a team appearance and opting to sit out two crucial road games. Incredibly, the team gave him a piddling $50 buyout for the 50 percent ownership stake Owens had in the team.
Owens’ original contract stipulated that he didn’t have to play in road games unless certain financial conditions were met. He blamed his missed appearance at a children’s hospital on a Wranglers publicist.
“Mr. Owens’ legal team is addressing the details of the Wranglers release statement,” an Owens representative told TMZ. “(Owens) played all games according to his contractual agreement and was proud to be part of the IFL and the Allen Wranglers.”
Citing sources close to the player, TMZ reported Thursday that the Wranglers notified Owens, in writing, that he had 48 hours to leave the house in which they set him up. He also was asked to hand over the keys to the 2012 Jeep Cherokee the team provided him for transportation. Stay tuned to the ocnnreport.com for further details as this story continues to unfold.
