Terrell Owens is one of the best wide receivers to ever play in the NFL. Owens, a Pro Football Hall Of Famer, probably should have gone in on the first ballot.

Owens made six Pro Bowls and was a five-time First-Team All-Pro selection. He ranks sixth all-time with 1,078 career receptions, third all-time with 15,934 yards, and third all-time with 153 receiving touchdowns.

12 years out from his last NFL game, Owens believes he could still play in the NFL. In a recent interview on San Francisco radio station 95.7 The Game, he told hosts that a return to playing isn’t out of the question.

“Hey look, man, I’ve already kind of sprinkled some words out there. Like yo, if you guys need a receiver, I’m good. Listen here: third down, red zone, trust me. I’m a very valuable asset.

“I’ve been training … I’m already ready, I’ve already reached out to Jed York, I’ve already told him, ‘Yo, if you need somebody, I’m definitely a viable.

York is the CEO of the 49ers.

The Internet’s been buzzing with rumors that a new James Bond has been found. Though unverified, many are reporting that Aaron Taylor-Johnson will be the seventh man to play 007.  He was most recently seen with Brad Pitt in “Bullet Train” and was the title character in the two “Kick Ass” films. 

Doritos is giving away two Super Bowl tickets.  But to win them, you have to shave a Dorito-shaped triangle into your head.  It’s based on Bills linebacker Von Miller, who’s been rocking a triangle hairdo for a while.

You also have to come up with a name for the haircut, and post a photo online with “#NameThatTriangle” and “#Entry”.

You’ve got until January 15th to shave a triangle into your head, anywhere you like . . . come up with a name . . . and tag them in your post.
