Julio Jones times Terrell Owens at 4.43 seconds in 40-yard dash

Local Olympic gold medalist challenges former Eagles WR Terrell Owens to a race

A 16-year veteran, Owens resides second in the National Football League 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 Bengals. Jones, who skipped last week's minicamp, was one of the people who clocked Owens' 40-yard-dash on Monday, too.

After running a (hand-timed) 4.43, T.O. The other had him at 4.44.

"Ya boy just ran under 4.5".

For me. I just don't get it. But the six-time NFL Pro Bowl selection has entertained the notion as recently as this year, when he was interviewed while speaking at the BC Lions' Orange Helmet Awards.

A little over a week ago, Owens blasted Michael Irvin of the NFL Network and Jason Whitlock of Fox Sports 1 for criticizing his decision to miss his ceremony in Canton, Ohio. And Owens - who played in the NFL from 1996-2010, most notably with the San Francisco 49ers - likely still has the football knowledge to step back on the field and pick up any team's playbook fairly quickly.
