8. Terrell Owens
Hands down, this has to be the most interesting player on this list to seek entry into Canton is Terrell Owens.

Statistically speaking, T.O. has the resume. As of this writing, he is number two in Receiving Yards, third in Receiving Touchdowns and sixth in receptions. He had seasons as a dominating player, earning five First Team All Pro nods and six Pro Bowls, and in his lone Super Bowl appearance he was a beast with 122 Yards despite coming off a horse collar tackle injury. That’s what should put him in; now here is what could keep him out.

Owens was not exactly a team player and a notorious Quarterback killer who slapped gay rumors on Jeff Garcia and essentially blamed Donovan McNabb for not winning the Super Bowl. He has been a sideshow on more than one occasion and is featured on TMZ as much as he was on ESPN. Is this a Hall of Fame entry? We think so, but we also suspect they will make him wait.

Should Terrell Owens be in the Hall of Fame?

No way! - 11.8%
