05:11 PM ET 06.07 | His past is well documented, but it's Terrell Owens' future that remains the only undiscovered aspect of what has been a fantastic, tumultuous, brilliant, and frustrating career. We may soon have an indication of where that future is headed. "If I play this year, that'd be awesome," Owens said in an interview with CBSSports.com. "If I don't play this year, I'm retiring." "That's just me being realistic," he said. "I want to play again. I want to go out on top with a team. I think I can still play, but if I don't sign with a team, it would be time to retire. I have to be honest with myself." "I'm not chasing a dream," Owens added. "I can still play football. If you're a team looking for a wide receiver and don't think I can play, tell me why. If it's because you don't like me, then that's fine, but don't tell me I can't still play."

Thought he retired awhile ago. The NFL sure thought so!

Well, at least he's being honest with himself.

Last played in 2010 season.

Same way Barry Bonds retired.

Has he had hand transplants?

All this gun violence ... why can't someone find this guy?

Maybe TO is the last to get the message we all got.

Don't you need to be employed first in order to have something to retire from?
