33rd Team: Bills once had a top-10 all-time NFL wide receiver

He might not be known for his time with the Buffalo Bills, but you can’t deny that it happened.

The 33rd Team has published their list of the top-10 wide receivers in NFL history. Terrell Owens, yes a former Bill, made the cut.

In 2009, Owens signed a one-year deal with the Bills. During his only season in Buffalo, he caught 55 passes for 829 yards with six touchdowns. He also scored one rushing TD.

Now a Hall of Famer, Owens might have just had a lone season with the Bills but he did previously want to remain with the team for another year. Owens is often positive toward his season in Buffalo as well, having shown up at home games in Orchard Park since his retirement.

The 33rd Team’s analysis of Owens is right here:

Owens was incredibly reliable and explosive, boasting the physique of a Greek God, a matching physical play style, and surprising speed for his bulkiness. He never led the league in yards in one season but did lap the field thrice in touchdowns. Only in his rookie season did he tally fewer than 754 yards and broke the 1,000-yard mark a whopping nine times in 15 years.

Owens was so good that he still produced 983 yards and nine scores in only 14 games during his swan-song season with the Bengals at 37 years old. He finished his career third in yards and touchdowns and eighth in receptions.

Because of his brash personality, he was often considered his own worst enemy, but it’s hard to fathom that he might’ve produced even more had he continued playing.

The full list from The 33rd Team, including Owens, can be found below:
