CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

Terrell Owens notified the Pro Football Hall of Fame that he will not attend this year’s induction ceremony in Canton.

“After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere. At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction.”

Owens was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the eight-man Class of 2018 on the eve of Super Bowl LII. The Enshrinement takes place on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, as the focal point of a weeklong celebration in Canton honoring the new class.

Hall of Fame representatives call this “unprecedented.”
