NFL: Terrell Owens Pays Off $430K in Income Tax Debt

Jul 1 2013, 9:24pm CDT | by

Free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens recently paid off more than $430,000 in income tax debt.

Free agent wide receiver Terrell Owens recently paid off a tax debt amounting to $430,000. 

The story dates back to February of this year when TMZ reported Owens was on the receiving end of a tax lien filed by the IRS. The breakdown includes major income tax dollars for 2005 ($294,661.71), 2007 ($46,504.00) and 2009 ($97,747.81). The precise total amounts to $438,913.52. 

TMZ attributes the outlandish income tax totals to Owens' salary when he was playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills. He reportedly paid off the entire amount with the tax lien officially released on June 27.

Some NFL observers consider the controversial Owens to be Pro Football Hall of Fame material had it not been for his attitude. At 37 hears of age in 2010, he proved he can still haul in receiving yards (983) and touchdowns (nine) when he played for the Cincinnati Bengals alongside beleaguered friend Chad Johnson. 

He suffered a torn ACL in the following offseason, and hasn't played a single down in the NFL since. The closest he's ever been to playing again was with the Seattle Seahawks last offseason, but he got cut even before the regular season began. 

Owens declared last  month in a radio program that he would be a good fit for the Kansas City Chiefs, citing familiarity with new head coach Andy Reid's offense. However, Reid's knowledge of Owens' behavior and the presence of Dwayne Bowe make it clear the Chiefs have literally no room for him on their roster. 

 

Owens has played in 15 NFL seasons for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. He has amassed 15,934 receiving yards with 1,078 receptions for a 14.8 average per catch. He also has 153 career touchdowns, per ESPN stats.
