Terrell Owens' Allen Wranglers Debut: Ex-NFL Receiver Scores Three Touchdowns (VIDEO)

Terrell Owens may have not garnered much attention from NFL teams back in October with his own personal workout, but he certainly turned a few heads on Saturday night during his Indoor Football League debut with the Allen Wranglers.

After a year away from the game, the six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver made quite a first impression with his new team. He scored three touchdowns on three catches -- all in the first half -- and finished with 53 yards as the Wranglers beat the Wichita Wild 50-30.

"I thought I did all right. I think we should have had more points on the board," Owens said after the game. "From an overall team standpoint, we had too many penalties and obviously we have to do better in that department offensively and defensively."

Not only did the 38-year-old shine in his debut, but he also drew what Wranglers owner Jon Frankel said was a larger home attendance than the entire 2011 season.

Was this the start of his path back to the National Football League? Owens, who will just play in the Wranglers home games, said earlier this month that he has not retired from the NFL and still plans on playing a couple more years.

Owens missed the entire 2011 season after undergoing surgery in April on a torn ACL. He was set to return in the middle of the season, but no team was willing to sign him.

Owens recently revealed to GQ for their February issue that he is friendless and nearly broke, having squandered the bulk of the $80 million he earned during his NFL career.
