Despite never holding the distinction of Super Bowl champion, Terrell Owens has enjoyed a long and successful NFL career. Sadly, this career is seemingly coming to an end. Following a semi-successful run with the Philadelphia Eagles, Owens began being swapped around the league. His unsuccessful stint with the Dallas Cowboys left a stigma on the aging star.

Last season, Owens teamed up with Chad Ochocinco in hopes of creating the Miami Heat of the NFL. While both teams had early struggles and both came up short of the title, it was done in different ways. The duo of Owens and Ochocinco failed to produce a winning record or a playoff berth. As a result, the Cincinnati Bengals reportedly have no interest in re-signing Terrell Owens.

Outside of football, Terrell Owens has become the face of VH1 with his series, "The T.O. Show." The show has shown a different side of the NFL baller. More of his childhood, growing up in Alabama, has begun to show. Perhaps, due to his luck with the television show, Terrell Owens decided to try his hand at being a casino. Along with twenty-five other NFL players, Owens invested in a casion based out of Alabama. The casino has since been shut down and is currently under investigation, according to reports.

If enough evidence is found, Terrell Owens and the other investors could be fined by the NFL, suspended by the NFL, or forced to abandon their investment, which was over $20 million.
