Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson go head-to-head with Skip Bayless on HOF snub

Feb 13, 2016 at 6:52 PM--


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.

It seemed like the San Francisco 49ers had some serious issues at cornerback entering their Week 3 matchup against the New York Giants. Richard Sherman isn't eligible to return from his calf injury until October 11 against the Miami Dolphins. Then, before the game, the 49ers listed his replacement, Ahkello Witherspoon, as inactive due to a hamstring injury. That left veteran Jason Verrett and Emmanuel Moseley to start against quarterback Daniel Jones and the Giants. The 49ers won the game 36-9 and departed back-to-back games at MetLife Stadium with a 2-1 record and a two-game win streak. "I was so happy for Jason Verrett," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "Jason Verrett is a stud. He's been a great player in this league, and he's been through maybe
