Buffalo Bills receiver Terrell Owens is looking to get his GQ on after signing a deal this week with top modeling agency Wilhelmina.
“Well, I’m always putting my hands in and feeding into something,” Owens said after practice Wednesday, noting Wilhelmina approached him with the offer. “When you’ve got some good looks like myself, you’ve got to take full advantage of it.”
Wilhelmina issued a statement describing the partnership as natural, given T.O.’s popularity.
“Owens has achieved what most athletes can only dream of: record books highlighting his name, fans sporting his jersey and a nickname of just two letters that is recognized by sports enthusiasts nationwide,” said Wilhelmina, according to the Associated Press.
The firm, which has offices in New York, Los Angeles and Miami, signed Owens to its sports division, which also promotes boxer Roy Jones Jr., NBA star Andrei Kirilenko and U.S. speedskater Allison Baver. Wilhelmina will represent Owens in seeking endorsements and sponsorship deals in personal care and fashion industries.
