Terrell Owens has been making history since he came into the NFL in 1996. He was a braggadocious wide receiver with the skills and play to back his loud-mouthed antics on the field. The Pro Football Hall of Famer and former NFL superstar is now a wide receiver in the FCFL, and he has just been traded within this league.

T.O., 48, has been traded from the FCF Zappers to the Knights of Degen, in the first ever FCFL trade in league history. There were multiple players, and multiple teams involved in this transaction, but ultimately the headliner of these trades was the former NFL wide receiver. 

“The first-ever trade in FCF history has taken place and it involves OG Teams the Zappers and Beasts and Ballerz team The Knights. The three-team deal was proposed by the team’s owners and then sent to a vote by the fans who had the ability to veto the trade for their team – but ultimately each team’s fans decided to lock it in for their squad as they focus on building out their rosters for the stretch run of FCF Season v2.0,” the FCF’s official website showed this week.

Owens is leaving disgraced ex-NFL QB and former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel on the Zappers, going to the Knights of Degen, joining forces with QB Ed Crouch, who is second in the league in passing yards, and touchdowns. This looks to be a great upgrade over Johnny Manziel who’s done little on the field as a signal caller, and the more utilized QB Josh Stewart, whose stats aren’t nearly as prolific as Crouch’s.

Reports sa Manziel’s inept play was a major reason why T.O. had to get up out of there.

 

According to Yahoo Sports, The deal is pretty convoluted. Owens was sent from the Zappers to the Knights of Degen. The Beasts were also involved in the deal. Five total players were moved in the deal, which also included four weekly draft picks. The trade was negotiated by the team’s owners, but fans had to approve the deal. That required a 70% supermajority, which was reached.”

Owens, who put up five consecutive 1,000+ yard seasons from 2000-2004, and then three more consecutive 1,000+ seasons between 2006-2008 in the NFL, now has eight receptions for 102 yards in the FCFL, good for 12th league-wide. He also has a couple of TD grabs.  The five-time Pro Bowl player seems to still be in demand despite being 48 years old. 

The league itself probably prefers T.O. to be the centerpiece of the historic trade in the FCFL. Matching the 6-foot-3 receiver with explosive Ed Crouch could mean a title run, which is definitely a good look for the league.

Being traded away from the 0-4 Zappers, who are winless through the four weeks of football, and joining he 3-1 Knights is more to T.O.’s liking. The Knights’ only loss was to the Bored Apes, who are the top team in the league with an undefeated 4-0 record. The Knights lost a close one to the Apes in their initial matchup without T.O. (36-32). 

There is a lot of optimism surrounding the Knights, way more than that of the Zappers, and their newly acquired veteran receiver looks to not only improve depth but to add some valuable Hall of Fame play starting Saturday, May 14, as the Knights of Degen take on the Bored Apes in a highly anticipated rematch.
