Former San Francisco 49ers WR Terrell Owens joins former WR Chad Johnson in a head-to-head round table with Skip Bayless on ESPN's First Take. The trio debate on whether or not, despite his impressive stats, Owens deserved to get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the first ballot.
Owens and Johnson make the case that he should have been elected and Bayless makes the case that he actually made his numerous teams worse by being a disruption.
Watch the debate below.
Owens, who was drafted by San Francisco in the third round of the 1996 NFL Draft, was with the 49ers from 1996 until 2003. He also spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.
The six-time Pro Bowler and five-time first team All-Star has 1,078 career receptions for 15,934 yards and 153 touchdowns. He ranks sixth all-time in receptions, and is second only to Jerry Rice in all-time receiving yards. He also ranks third in all-time receiving touchdowns.
In 2000, he broke to record for catches in a game. That record would later be broken in 2009 by Brandon Marshall.

During Mooch's reign as coach he fined TO for being late to team meetings but others like Jeff Garcia had option to buy team lunch instead.— Ryan Sakamoto (@SakamotoRyan) February 13, 2016
