Terrell Owens is on the move – as long as the fans agree.
The league on Tuesday confirmed its first-ever fan-controlled football trade, a three-team deal that includes the 48-year-old perimeter player from the Zappers to the Cavaliers.
However, fans of the league still need to approve the acquisition. In FCF, fans have the right to veto deals. Each team will vote to accept the transaction, requiring 70% of the votes to cancel the transaction.
Owens made his FCF debut with the Zappers in April with a 12-yard touchdown. It was Owens’ first touchdown since December 5, 2010.
that year? 2022. Touchdown scorer? Terrell Owens.

Owens, along with former Browns quarterback Johnny Manzier, is the most high-profile player in the FCF. The two have teamed up for the Zappers in recent weeks and scored their first touchdown in late April.

Fan Controlled Football is a 7-on-7 indoor league that allows fans to initiate offense and make other decisions for the team.
One of the best wide receivers the NFL has ever seen, Owens was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018. There was controversy over his failure to attend his enshrinement ceremony due to what he believed to be the poor treatment of the media during his career.
In 15 NFL seasons with the 49ers, Hawks, Cowboys, Bills and Bengals, he finished with 153 touchdowns for 15,934 yards.
