UPDATE: NFL HOFer Terrell Owens not included in XFL Draft pool

XFL Schedule 2020

Terrell Owens may or may not be done with football, despite having already been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.

The legendary receiver had reportedly accepted an invite to be a part of the inaugural XFL Draft, which takes place on Oct. 15, but then the league announced an update after the news spread, indicating he will not be included in the draft.

Owens last played in the NFL during the 2010 season as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals. He last played professionally during the 2012 Indoor Football League season as a member of the Allen Wranglers.

During his legendary 16 season as an NFL star, Owens caught 1,078 passes for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns.

Needless to say, if he did in fact become available for the XFL in 2020 it would be a major draw for the upstart league.
