Terrell Owens has not played in the NFL since 2010, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018 and he’s now 48 years old. Despite all that, Owens is still in demand… in the Fan Controlled Football (FCF) league. Owens was part of the league’s first-ever trade Wednesday, and was sent to the Knights of Degen.
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 into 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 and former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel are among the biggest names in the Fan Controlled Football league. Owens has eight catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns since joining the FCF.
What is the Fan Controlled Football league?
On the surface, the Fan Controlled Football league appears to be an NFT scheme masquerading as a football league. Games, which feature 7-on-7 action, are streamed on Twitch. The field is only 50 yards and fans can call plays.
Owens will suit up with the Knights of Degen on Saturday. They’ll take on Bored Ape FC. If that matchup doesn’t strike you, there’s always the Glacier Boyz vs. Beasts.
If you’re going to support a team, you better jump on the bandwagon soon. With cryptocurrencies crashing, there might not be a Fan Controlled Football league much longer.
