FOOTBALL: Owens close to deal with IFL's Allen Wranglers

The Allen Wranglers said wide receiver Terrell Owens is close to agreeing to a deal with the Indoor Football League team. He also would receive an ownership stake of “likely 50 percent,” owner Jon Frankel told ESPN Dallas.

According to the Wranglers’ website, the compensation package would range from $250,000-$500,000.

In 15 NFL seasons, Owens, 38, was a six-time Pro Bowl selection. He last played in the NFL in 2010 with the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Wranglers are not on the Tri-Cities Fever’s 2012 schedule, but they will be in Everett twice next year.
