Terrell Owens catches a touchdown in Fan Controlled Football League game

The year is 2022, not 2002, but Terrell Owens is still catching touchdown passes.

Owens, 48, declared his return to the grid earlier this month by joining the Fan Controlled Football League, which entered its second season on Saturday.

Playing for the Zappers, the same team as Johnny Manziel, Owens got his touchdown off another quarterback (Laquan Horton) as time expired in the first half.

Horton stepped into the pocket and threw a pass between two defenders in the end zone. Owens came up and secured the ball for the score.

After Owens stopped playing, he settled into the broadcast booth and interviewed players and coaches during the game.

The Fan Controlled Football League has seven players from each team on the field (three-man lines) on a 50-yard field. There are no special teams and matches are supposed to last one hour. Fans help select games for the attack in real time.

Owens was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018 after a career that spanned from 1996 to 2010 with five All-Pro selections. He played for the San Francisco 49ers (1996-2003), Philadelphia Eagles (2004-05) and Dallas Cowboys (2006-08).

His NFL days ended with the Buffalo Bills (2009) and Cincinnati Bengals (2010). Owens caught 153 touchdowns and had almost 16,000 receiving yards.
