How the mighty have fallen: the Arena Football League, specifically the Chicago Rush, have made Terrell Owens a contract offer. No, this is not a joke.
A spokeswoman for the team told me the offer was the standard Areana League contract: $400 per week.
Now, this is a total grandstanding move and Owens would never play in the AFL but it's damn smart of the AFL to make the offer and then publicize it. Damn smart. It'll never work but you can't blam them for trying.
Remember, Owens was once one of the highest paid players in the NFL making tens of millions.
Now, he's being offered the football equivalent of sub-standard wages. Wow.
Again, how the mighty have fallen.
