Terrell Owens: I Can Break Jerry Rice’s Records If…
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens may have just created another firestorm. The controversial National Football League star has blamed the lack of quality quarterbacks in his previous teams for his failure to get close to Jerry Rice’s records.
Owens, a six-time Pro Bowl selection, said that had he been blessed with quality quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, or Drew Brees throughout his career, he would be within reach of breaking the records held by Rice, who is arguably the best wide receiver in history.
Despite being a fodder for controversy, Owens is not all talk, as he has the numbers to back up his claims. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga alumnus holds the record for being the only player to score a touchdown against all NFL teams and is third all-time in receiving touchdowns, just behind Rice and Randy Moss.
Owens was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 1996 and had played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys before being signed by the Bills in March last year.
