Terrell Owens has his sights set on playing football again.

Canada-based agent Jason Staroszik told TSN that his client "absolutely 100 percent" wants to play in the CFL.

"He still feels like he has some football years left in him," Staroszik said. "He just loves the game and wants to get back to playing whether it's the CFL or NFL."

The CFL's Edmonton Eskimos added the retired wide receiver to their negotiations list in June, giving the team his exclusive rights in the league. Owens then activated his 10-day clause with the Eskimos on July 14, which will give Edmonton until July 24 to either offer Owens a contract or release his rights.

Owens, 44, last played in an NFL game with the Bengals in 2010 and finished his 15-year career with 15,934 receiving yards and 153 touchdowns.

The six-time Pro Bowl and five-time All-Pro selection is set to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August, though he will host his own ceremony at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
