Terrell Owens won’t be attending the Pro Football Hall of Fame ceremony in Canton, Ohio next month, but he still plans to celebrate the momentous occasion with his fellow Class of 2018 inductees.
Owens took to social media yesterday to reveal custom Vans slip-ons for Brian Dawkins, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss, Brian Urlacher, Jerry Kramer, Bobby Beathard and Robert Brazile, to commemorate their enshrinement.

T.O’s kind gesture came on the same day that Hall of Fame executive director Joe Horrigan told the Talk of Fame Sports Network that Owens would not be acknowledged during the ceremony, since he has decided to decline the invitation.
Owens had previously announced that he wouldn’t be attending the event, saying he’d rather celebrate elsewhere. He released a statement that reads, “While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton,” Owens said in a statement released Thursday. “… After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere.”
