You don’t exactly think of dropped guaranteed touchdowns and a preseason cut when thinking of Hall of Fame wideouts, but that’s exactly the image Terrell Owens left us with after departing from the Seattle Seahawks. TO has scored more touchdowns than all but one pass catcher in NFL history, and with that guy considered the greatest of all time, you’ve gotta feel like 81 will have his tearful day at the Canton podium some day soon.
The man whose touchdown record he chased in vain is paired with arguably the best WR doing it today in a new duo of LunarLon cushioned crosstrainers released in conjunction with the latest Madden franchise release. The EA Sports x Nike Lunar TR1+ celebrates the statistically incomparable Jerry Rice as the ‘Greatest of All Time’ on a 49ers-like red and gold getup, while the hottest hands in the league show up on Calvin ‘Megatron’ Johnson‘s Detroit blue edition. These are packaged in deluxe foam-lined boxes and feature their namesake athletes flanking the footbeds, and will be available at the Toronto and Las Vegas Niketown locations as well as Willowbrook, NJ’s Champs Sports (a curious selection that leaves the two associated cities out in the cold) coming up on Saturday, September 1st. Let us know which came out better once you’ve seen more photos below and stick with Sneaker News to see if a wider release is to follow.
