Terrell Owens is reportedly returning to the gridiron. According to a report from Reuters, the Hall of Fame wide receiver will join Fan Controlled Football.

Apparently, Owens is in great shape and wants to show the sports world that he can still play at a high level.

Owens, 48, last played professional football for the Seattle Seahawks in 2012. He has flirted with the idea of making a comeback in the past though, so this report isn't that surprising.

Reuters is reporting that Owens will most likely join the Zappers. That means he could end up catching passes from former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

Not only is Owens expected to make an impact on the field, he'll reportedly interview owners and players from Fan Controlled Football.

From Reuters:

The source said Owens will be mic'd up and wearing a helmet camera for games. He will also provide content for streaming provider fuboTV by interviewing team owners and players during games when he is not playing.

Fan Controlled Football is a league that features a 7-on-7 format in an Atlanta indoor facility.

The league would certainly benefit from having Owens on one of their rosters.
