Terrell Owens will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame 2018 class on August 4th, but he will not be there to celebrate the accomplishment. Owens has been critical about the voting process to be entered after being denied entry in his first two years of eligibility.
“While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton. I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere.”
T.O. is a five-time all-pro selection, trailing behind only Jerry Rice in career receiving yards (15,934) and ranks third in touchdown catches (153). He played for five teams — the 49ers, Eagles Cowboys, Bills and Bengals — in his 15-year career.
