A couple weeks ago the San Francisco 49ers announced that they were inducting former wide receiver great Terrell Owens into the teams Hall of Fame. Owens will become the 28th inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame. The initial announcement was just a tease, as the team didn’t announce a date.
From the horses mouth himself:

Not bad. You have to imagine the energy will be better than ever for the opener.
Here’s Owens on being inducted:
“I am so humbled to be mentioned with the likes and greats of Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice and many others that have represented the San Francisco 49ers organization,” Owens said in a statement. “I wouldn’t be who I am and have accomplished what I did, number one, without God and without the push of my teammates and coaches, especially Coach Larry Kirksey and Coach George Stewart. The Bay Area is where I began my career, and I will forever be indebted to the 49ers and recognized as one of the 49ers greats. I am honored to be inducted in the 49ers Hall of Fame as this is a special moment with a special group of individuals. Thank you, again, to the 49ers organization and 49ers Faithful.”
Owens may have been the most physically dominating WR ever.
