Troubled NFL player will try his hand at posing.
Terrell Owens's recent struggles to make ends meet in the NFL have been no secret, so the once-celebrated football player is entering a new line of work.
Yardbarker.com reports that the future Hall of Famer, who insiders believe ruined his NFL career because of attitude problems, has signed with Los Angeles-based agency Next Model Management to try his hand at modeling — Owens' publicist confirmed the news on Monday.
The 39-year-old athlete has long been infatuated with his own looks, coining the catchphrase "I love me some me!" Though this new gig will surely stroke his vanity, hopefully it will also help T.O. out of debt. After struggling for years with property foreclosures and custody battles, Owens alleged that he was improperly guided by his former financial advisor Jeff Rubin into making bad investments.
Perhaps this fresh start will put T.O. on a better path.
