Terrell Owens, former 49ers star and current wide receiverfor the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League, will have two of hisDallas condominiums auctioned off in early March.While he earned around 80 million during his NFL career, Owens is now making amore pedestrian wage with the Wranglers despite three touchdown catches in hisfirst game action -- and is facing foreclosure on two of his properties. According to Yardbarker.com, citing a real estate site thattracks foreclosures, Owens owns two homes within three miles of each other in Dallas that are under water. Owens told GQ that he is broke due to misguided financialinvestments.
"I hate myself for letting this happen," he said in the Februaryissue. "I believed that my advisors had my back when they said, 'Youtake care of the football, and we'll do the rest.' And in the end, they justbasically stole from me." GQs feature on Owens also included the news that his Atlanta home is for sale and he sold a residence in New Jersey for less thanhalf what he paid.This leaves us with a simple question: Do you feel bad for Terrell Owens or doyou think hes deserving of this fate?

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent. His uncertain status has led to speculation presumptive 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan will be interested in acquiring him in the offseason.
On Sunday, Cousins got a first-hand look at his former coach’s offense.
Cousins posted a photo on Instagram from the stands at the Georgia Dome, where the Atlanta Falcons and their high-octane offense blasted the Green Bay Packers, 44-21, in the NFC Championship game.
Cousins wrote the caption, “Watching two of the best in the world do what they do & taking notes to make it to this game next year -score a lot of points!”
Washington finished third in the NFC East and out of the playoffs with an 8-7-1 record.
Shanahan, the Falcons’ offensive coordinator, coached Cousins for the first two seasons of his NFL career with Washington on the staff of his father, Mike Shanahan. Cousins appeared in just eight games with four starts in 2012 and ’13.
Cousins' career has taken off in the past two seasons while starting all 32 regular-season games. He completed 67 percent of his passes this season with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and a passer rating of 97.2.
Washington placed the franchise tag on Cousins this season at nearly $20 million. He franchise tag is expected to be approximately $24 million in 2017.
If Washington places the non-exclusive franchise tag on Cousins, a team could sign him to an offer sheet at the cost of two first-round draft picks or negotiate a trade with Washington for a lesser amount.
Former 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula reportedly might be back in the NFL after a one-year hiatus.
Tomsula, who spent his first eight NFL seasons as a defensive line coach, could be returning to that job with Washington, Carol Maloney of NBC4 reported on Sunday. But according to the Washington Post, a deal is not done between the two sides.
If the deal were to happen Tomsula would be rejoining Washington defensive coordinator Greg Manusky and general manager Scot McCloughan, both of whom he worked with while members of the 49ers organization.
Tomsula was promoted to the head-coaching job over finalist Adam Gase two years ago after the 49ers' “mututal parting” with coach Jim Harbaugh. Tomsula was fired after the 49ers went 5-11 in 2015. Chip Kelly was hired to replace Tomsula. Kelly was fired after the 49ers went 2-14, including a franchise-worst 13-game losing streak.
