There are some who argue he is one of the best to ever play the game, aside from one of the greatest receivers in football history.

Still, induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio was never a sure thing for Terrell Owens.

In the end, there was no denying the inevitable truth: Owens was elite among the elite.

In 2012, the Seahawks saw that legacy of talent and wondered if he still had enough juice for one more NFL season.

Owens played only a few preseason games, but had some big drops that led to his departure as the team made cuts to the 53-man roster.

According to NFL.com, Owens was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and holds or shares several NFL records having play over 16 seasons. Owens has 15,934 career receiving yards ranked second in NFL history and his 153 receiving touchdowns rank third.
