Hall of Fame wide receiver Terrell Owens is considering an NFL return after celebrating his 49th birthday earlier this month.

Owens is in contact with a number of NFL teams, but is targeting a return to the Cowboys, according to Sports Illustrated.

“We have been in constant communication with [Cowboys owner] Jerry Jones’ office over the past few days on the possibility of him returning to the Cowboys,” Houston-based Owens’ agent Gregory DL Daniel said. “Terrell is ready to contribute and play any role, big or small.

“He is in exceptional shape. He doesn’t look any different than he did years ago. I watched him run full speed with DeSean [Jackson] and he looked great. He didn’t drop a pass.

Owens worked with Ravens wide receiver DeSean Jackson this year before Jackson, 36, signed with Baltimore.
