Terrell Owens has been making noises about playing again, even though the star wide receiver is scheduled to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 6 1/2 weeks.

The 44-year-old wide receiver last played in the NFL in 2010, but continues to insist he can still play and showed he has plenty of spring in his steps by clocking a 4.44 in the 40-yard dash over the weekend.

Whether any NFL team will entertain the thought of bringing in Owens remains to be seen, but there may be interest in the flamboyant wideout from north of the border.

According to TSN, the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League placed Owens on their negotiation list.

That doesn't necessarily mean anything, but could provide Owens another option if he is determined to attempt a return to the field. Owens did try a comeback in 2012 before being cut in training camp by the Seattle Seahawks.

A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Owens made more headlines earlier this month by publicly declining his invitation to attend the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Aug. 4 in Canton, Ohio.

Owens was selected for enshrinement in the Class of 2018 along with linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher, wide receiver Randy Moss and safety Brian Dawkins. They will be joined by Bobby Beathard (contributor) and seniors committee nominees Jerry Kramer and Robert Brazile.

A 16-year veteran, Owens resides second in the NFL in career receiving yards (15,934), eighth in all-time receptions (1,078) and fifth in total touchdowns (156) while playing for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.
