Ex-49er Terrell Owens Takes Up Competitive Bowling

(CBS Sports) – Former 49er wide receiver Terrell Owens has been eyeing a return to the league, but the 39-year-old seems to have a backup plan in place should no teams take a chance on him.


Owens made his United States Bowling Congress Open Championships debut at the National Bowling Stadium Wednesday, rolling a 475 series with games of 185, 129, and 161.

“The first game went pretty well,” Owens told Bowl.com. “I’m still new to this, so when I saw some of the guys switching balls, I felt I should switch, too. I probably should have stayed with the same ball. I ended up going back to the first ball I used and made some other minor adjustments with my feet and eyes.”
