Terrell Owens says he's returning to the NFL this season

October 6, 2011 | 11:53 am


Whoa, T.O. (No, I'm not signaling for a timeout.)

In an interview with ESPN, Terrell Owens said he could return to the NFL "in a month or less."

"I'm going to come back," said Owens, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament in April.

Owens, a six-time Pro Bowler, had 983 yards and nine touchdowns with the Cincinnati Bengals last season. He said whatever team signs him will get exactly what it expects.

That could be a good thing -- he's one of the NFL's elite wideouts. It could also bring a bit of drama -- he's known as a controversial figure who can be moody at times.

"They gonna get the T.O. that they expect," he said. "Don't expect anything less.

"I'm not gonna waste your time, so I wouldn't expect you to waste my time. When I step on the field, you know what you gonna get."
