I’m sure after holding a private workout last month both Terrell Owens and agent Drew Rosenhaus figured T.O. would be snagging passes in the NFL by now. Unfortunately that hasn’t happened. I don’t think any of us expected Owens to accept the offer from the Chicago Rush of the Arena Football League, but with child support to pay T.O. has found another source of income with no football checks to cash.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Mr. O says he makes between $2,800 – $6,400 per tweet. In one instance, he pulled in $2,800 to tweet for Cutters — a football glove company. He raked in $4,800 for tweeting on behalf of Old Navy. And he got $6,400 for tweeting about Fantapper — a sports social networking site.
T.O. also discloses he’s earned residual money for an episode of “Punk’d” and for his appearances on “Any Given Sunday” and “Necessary Roughness.”
And get this … T.O. scored $10 grand for promoting Yahoo Fantasy Football and $20 grand for promoting a Super Bowl party.
It’s been a month since Owens held his workout and it doesn’t appear a team is serious about acquiring his services so that ship appears to have sailed at this point. I’m not going to knock another man’s hustle because we all do what we have to do. Basketball Hall of Famer Julius Erving recently auctioned off memorabilia from his personal collection that sold for over $3 million. I’m not sure what T.O. has stashed away, but that could be an option also.
