Buffalo Bills WR Terrell Owens to get his modeling career started

Thumbnail image for terrell-owens-glasses-hat.jpgBuffalo Bills wide receiver Terrell Owens is not always the model teammate, but from now on, everything he does will be model behavior.

That's because the often verbose pass-catching enthusiast signed a contract with the Wilhelmina Agency this week. Owens said he was approached by the firm, which was founded by former supermodel Wilhelmina Cooper and has offices in the model-friendly cities of Los Angeles, New York and Miami.

Seeking to capitalize on Owens' popularity, the agency will represent him in future endorsements and sponsorship deals in the fashion and personal care industries.

"Well, I'm always putting my hands in and feeding into something," Owens said. "When you've got some good looks like myself, you've got to take full advantage of it."

Owens got another bit of good off-the-field news recently when VH1 decided to pick up his reality show for a second season.

All is not peachy for the symmetrically-faced one, however. Owens' Bills are 4-8 on the year.

I just read a terrific interview on Terrell Owens at: www.ebmpublishing.com. The interview showed a different side to Terrell. He's a much smarter guy then they give him credit for.
