Terrell Owens got cut by the Allen Wranglers

The Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League announced Tuesday that they have parted ways with Terrell Owens after the wide receiver violated the terms of his contract. As well as being released as a player, Owens loses his ownership stake that he received as part of his deal.

You know it's bad when you own part of the team and still get cut.

Majority owner John Frankel said Owens refused to play in two upcoming road games and did not show up at an event at a local children's hospital. Even though Owens was not required to play in all of the Wranglers' away games under the terms of his contract, the team wanted him to play in the next two contests because of their importance to the team's playoff aspirations.

Add the Wranglers to the list of organizations that Owens has left on bad terms. He apparently saw the IFL as a way back into the NFL when he signed with the Wranglers in February. But at this rate, and with his past history of attitude and character issues as well as his age, Owens' return to the highest level of the sport seems very unlikely.
