Wide Receiver 2: Terrell Owens
Terrell Owens wasn’t the first player to go through ups and downs as a member of the 49ers.
What separated him from many of his peers was that Owens was absolutely amazing at his craft.
For those who weren’t blessed to witness his otherworldly play in red and gold, his induction into the Hall of Fame last year is evidence enough.
After being drafted by the front office of Dwight Clark and Bill Walsh in 1996, Owens went on to play for the 49ers until 2003. He finished his tenure in the Bay Area with 592 catches for 8,572 yards and 81 touchdowns.
After riding to superstardom, when he caught the game-winning pass in the 1998 Wild Card game against the Green Bay Packers, Owens fell out of favor with the 49ers. Amid a myriad of on-field antics and clashing with then-head coach Steve Mariucci, Owens was ultimately traded to the Philadelphia Eagles after the 2003 season.
That does not erase the fact that he is the second greatest 49ers receiver of all time.
