That changed the following year. In early August 2012, Owens, an almost certain Hall of Famer who has earned six Pro Bowl appearances and is second all-time in career touchdown receptions and receiving yards, inked a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
Throughout his long NFL career, Owens has been plagued by problems off the field. His issues made front-page headlines in 2006, when stories circulated that Owens had tried to take his own life by overdosing on medication. Owens quickly dismissed the story, telling reporters he'd been hospitalized for an allergic reaction to a medicine he'd been prescribed.
More recently, Owens, the father of four children, was hauled into court for neglecting to pay child support. Owens, who ended up appearing on the Dr. Phil show with the mothers of his children, claimed he had lost all his money and was unable to give his kids any kind of financial assistance. In July 2012, shortly before signing with Seattle, Owens was reported to have caught up on his child support payments.
