Former Bills WR Terrell Owens elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – For Terrell Owens, the third time was the charm.

After missing out on Hall of Fame induction each of the last two years, Owens finally received his call to join the best-of-the-best in Canton.

The wide receiver posted on Instagram on Saturday “Congrats to the HOF Class of 2018.  We’re GOLDEN!”

Owens ranks second all-time in career receiving yards (15,934) and third all-time in touchdowns with 153.  In his lone year with the Bills in 2008, the receiver had 829 yards and five touchdowns. He also had one rushing touchdown that season.
