Is T.O. A Future Hall of Famer?

NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens made his preseason debut with his new team the Buffalo Bills last night during the annual preseason Hall of Fame Game last night. At 35 years of age, the debate can be made whether Owens is Hall of Fame worthy. Owens always plays the good soldier when he first arrives with a new team, but over time he eventually wears out his welcome by complaining about the lack of passes being thrown to him or throwing temper tantrums on the sidelines.

Owens' talent and statistics are definitely Hall of Fame worthy, but the extra baggage that he brings will probably delay any entrance into the Hall when he is eligible 5 years after his retirement. With his career clearly winding down, he still has a chance to regain some much needed credibility if he can prove that he's a changed man with his new team.
