Terrell Owens on Antonio Brown: ‘If I say anything to him, it will be in private’

Sep 22, 2019 at 12:41 PM--

Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens knows a thing or two about being controversial.

Yet Owens, who will be inducted into the San Francisco 49ers Edward J. DeBartolo Hall of Fame at halftime, during the Niners' Week 3 contest at Levi's Stadium against the Pittsburgh Steelers, never underwent anything close to the crazy period that former Steelers, Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown is currently undergoing.

Brown, whose travels to Oakland, out of Oakland and then quickly to New England, only to find himself released after one game, has been the off-field storyline around the NFL.

And that story gained even more attention on Sunday, as Brown sent off a series of tweets, including one which suggested he was going to end his NFL career:

Owens was asked about Brown during a pregame interview with media ahead of Sunday's game.

"I don't want to answer questions about Brown," Owens said. "What I can say is you're innocent until proven guilty. ...If I say anything to him, it will be in private."

Owens also said he's close friends with Brown and hopes the newly unemployed wideout will be able to address his situations as best as possible.

Meanwhile, the 49ers and Steelers will prepare for kickoff on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET from Levi's Stadium. Owens' induction ceremony takes place at halftime.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Richard Sherman potentially playing safety: "I wouldn't put anything past him"

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman has indicated that he plans to play until he is about 35 years old. That means maybe three more years. At least, that was the plan a couple of years ago. "I think 35 is probably my cutoff," Sherman said in his first season with the 49ers. "They'd have a hard time getting me out of the bed at 35 to go play." Would Sherman consider a move to safety before then, if necessary? He's spoken to Charles Woodson, who successfully did so during his career, about the idea. "At some point, everybody makes the transition to safety if you're smart enough to play that game," Sherman said. "I'll probably do that in

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Nick Mullens: 'He gives us a chance to win, but we've got to play better around him'

Quarterback Nick Mullens hasn't been thrown into the best situation. He has taken over an injury-ravaged San Francisco 49ers roster that is just now starting to get some of its key players back. Yet, it remains far from full-strength. With Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined with a high-ankle sprain until at least Week 15, it's Mullens at the helm of the 49ers offense for now. He has completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 1,390 yards with six touchdowns through six games and four starts this season. The quarterback has also thrown six interceptions and posted a passer rating of over 90.0 just twice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan can't deny that Mullens has been up and down this season. Not all of it is his fault, though. The quarterback has been dealt a difficult hand. In one
