Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens dropped a man with a right cross outside a CVS in Los Angeles, according to reports. The man was allegedly harassing and heckling patrons inside the store and once outside took a swing at Owens.

Terrell Owens Knocks Out Man Outside CVS

Maybe this individual wasn’t in his right mind, or maybe he saw T.O. and thought it was his opportunity at 10 minutes of fame. Either way, it was a bad look.

Terrell Owens Is An Ex-NFL Player And In Great Physical Shape

The average American male stands at 5 fee 9 and weighs 197 pounds. T.O. is 6-foot-3 and at his peak playing weight was 224 pounds. Let’s say he’s up to 235 now. Regardless, that’s not a fight you want to get into.

That isn’t to say that professional athletes are also the best fighters and can’t be beaten. They’re generally bigger and stronger than you think, and in a fight that matters.

Owens maintains peak physical condition even in his late 40s.

In August of this year he supposedly was clocked running a sub 4.5 40-yard dash.

The five-time All-Pro at his peak was the best receiver in football. His five All-Pro selections were all first team. He was also a six-time Pro-Bowl selection, led the league in receiving touchdowns three times and is a member of the NFL’s 2000s All-Decade team.

He is the only player in NFL history to score a TD against all 32 NFL teams and the only player in NFL history to score two or more touchdowns against all 32 teams.

Terrell Owens Is One Of The Greatest NFL Players

T.O. is also the only player in NFL history to have an 800-yard receiving season with five different teams (Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers). He is the only player in league history to have a 150-yard receiving game with five different teams (Bengals, Bills, Cowboys, Eagles, 49ers), and the only player in NFL history to have a 200-yard receiving game with three different teams (Bengals, Cowboys, 49ers).

His 2001 season as a member of the San Francisco 49ers was probably his best. Owens had 93 receptions, 1,412 yards and 16 touchdowns. Leading the league in the latter. The 49ers were 12-4 that season, but lost in the wild card round to the Green Bay Packers. Owens only had four catches and 40 yards receiving in a not-so-stellar day from the 49ers offense and quarterback Jeff Garcia.

In 2005 as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles T.O. broke his leg seven weeks before the Super Bowl. Unsure if he would return in time for a chance to win a title, the Eagles marched on and advanced to the big game.

In one of the great performances in Super Bowl history, Owens returned and played in 62 of 72 offensive snaps. He caught nine passes for 122 yards on 14 targets, the most of any player in the game. The Eagles lost to the New England Patriots, but Owens’ performance cemented him as a big-time championship-level player.

Is Terrell Owens Facing Criminal Assault Charges?

According to reports, T.O. was trying to play peacemaker as two men argued. No police were called to the scene and after the incident, Owens hopped in his Tesla and left with no further physical confrontation.

Owens has been in the news quite a bit recently dealing with non-sports related issues. A white neighbor in his Florida community called the cops on him for “threatening” her. That proved to be untrue, and now this man was wanting to fight him outside a CVS.
