There will not be any mention of Terrell Owens during the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony in August.

In fact, the Hall of Fame is excluding Owens from the event entirely, according to executive director Joe Horrigan.

“The focus is on the guys who are here," Horrigan told Talk of Fame Network. "There’s no reason to bring him up as an individual. He’s not here.”

Owens will have to wait a little longer to get his gold jacket as well. Players typically receive their gold jackets at Friday's Gold Jacket dinner that will happen Aug. 3, but the Hall of Fame will instead mail Owens' gold jacket to him the following day.

Last month Owens announced his intention to pass on the induction ceremony to do things his way in typical T.O. fashion. He unveiled plans to host his own Hall of Fame ceremony at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee Chattanooga.

The 2018 Hall of Fame class will be a strong one that includes Randy Moss, Brian Dawkins, Brian Urlacher, Ray Lewis, Robert Brazile, Bobby Beathard, and Jerry Kramer.
