Watch highlights of Terrell Owens’ Hall of Fame speech

New, comments

He had plenty of people to thank, and of course some grievances to air. It was a solid speech overall.

Former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Terrell Owens was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, and as has been well-reported, he put on his gold jacket and made his speech in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The full speech has not been made available, but ESPN and NFL Network have compiled some clips of the highlights. You can watch the ESPN version above, and the NFL Network version here. By all accounts, it was mostly a conventional speech. It included some airing of grievances at the beginning and mixed in elsewhere, but it was nothing too spicy.

He got particularly emotional when talking about his mother and his now deceased grandmother. He had people stand up if, “they had ever been outcast, isolated, misunderstood, been lied about or mischaracterized.”

We’ll keep an eye out for a full video as well as a transcript, but I think the ESPN video gives a good flavor of the speech and is worth a watch. If you find more video, drop in a link below.
