Terrell Owens

LOSES 40-YARD DASH

... Against Ex-NFL Players

He's fast ... they were faster. 

Terrell Owens broke out his track cleats today for a 40-yard sprint against two former NFL players -- Justin Tryon (29) and Paul Pratt (28) ... but in the end, he just couldn't keep up. 

It all went down in Calabasas, CA -- where the 40-year-old wide receiver got  off to a slow start and just couldn't make up the gap. 

T.O. ran two different races -- Pratt won the first race ... Tryon won the second.  We're told Owens was right in the thick of things in both races. 

Sources at the race tell us ... it appeared Owens beat Tryon in the first race. But clearly came in 3rd in the 2nd race.

Even though he didn't win, we're told everyone at the track was blown away by Terrell's speed.

We spoke to Pratt, who tells TMZ Sports ... "He's faster than he was ten years ago. He should be a #1 receiver on an NFL team."

I am sure he can still play, but his problem has always been his attitude. He has been TOxic to every team he has been on.

TO is nothing but a promoter for TO the myth, the guy is a joke, he is a media circus clown. My grandmother can run faster then TO.

LOSES! Like he got blown away. It was a tight race and did you see him!? He's twice as big as both those guys and 10yrs younger. On the field, he would dominate both those dudes and probably much of the league, STILL! That was impressive for TO and shameful for the OTHER 2. If you were trying to make TO look bad...you did the exact opposite.
