Terrell Owens drove defenders crazy on the field and teams nuts off of it.

As a player, TO was a talent like no other. His career stats place him in the discussion on the greatest receivers of all time. He ranks second in all time receiving yards (15,934), third in all time receiving TDs (153), fifth in all time TDs (156) and eighth all time in receptions (1,078). Amazing stats for sure, but when it comes to discussions around hall of fame induction worthy, crickets come out.

After TO's fifteen year career, he has been a semifinalist for the Hall for the last three years, including being named among the 27 semifinalists for the class of 2018. Joining him is Randy Moss, another superstar receiver who has had his own set of issues of the field.

TO has never been one to hold his tongue, so when he was asked about his feelings on the Hall of Fame, TO pulled no punches.

"It's politics. I appreciate the years that I played, but now life goes on." Watch the full interview with TMZ below.
