Report: TO Pays Off $430 K Tax Debt

Owens was officially released from the tax lien last Thursday



    Terrell Owens’ financial troubles of late have been well publicized, but last week, the former Cowboys’ receiver got squared up with the federal government, which placed a tax lien on him back in February.

    According to, Owens paid off a tax debt worth north of $430,000 from the years 2005, 2007 and 2009. The lien was officially released last Thursday, June 27, meaning that Owens can go back to trying to find an NFL team in need of a 39-year-old receiver with Hall of Fame numbers and a long history of controversy.

    Owens was invited to Seahawks’ camp a year ago but was quickly cut. He last played an organized game of football in 2012 as a member of the Allen Wranglers and last played a down in the NFL in 2010, as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Owens will turn 40 in December.
