Is Terrell Owens a first ballot Hall of Famer? Being in HOF doesn’t mean much to him

Terrell Owens the former Tennessee Chattanooga wide receiver is eligble for the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year, but he is not really too concerned if he makes it or not.

Owens was on the Rich Eisen show this week and said he doesn’t really stress or think about him getting in the Hall of Fame.

 “I can’t wrap my head around that whole process because it really, literally, doesn’t mean that much to me. I understand what I’ve done on the field and it’s probably well deserving of [the Hall], but I’m being honest, it really doesn’t bother me whether I get in or not.

“I guess [being in the Hall] from a standpoint of a legacy or what my kids can really see what I’ve done, the body of work and appreciate it, then yeah, and my family. But me, personally, it really doesn’t do anything for me because I never played the game for that. I played it because I was competitive. I played it to the point that I realized my talent and I became pretty good at it. That was my motivation. I wanted to win at all costs.”

Do you think he should be a first ballot Hall of Famer?
