Free agent WR Terrell Owens isn’t ready to call it quits on his prismatic NFL career.

Owens is in South Korea on a three-day visit for stem-cell therapy on his surgically repaired ACL, according to The Korea Times, South Korea’s oldest english-language newspaper.

Unable to garner any interest in free agency, Owens might be interested in speeding his recovery time from offseason surgery. Peyton Manning underwent a similar procedure in Europe to heal his surgically-repaired neck, according to a report.

Read full story after the jumpDr. Lee Jung-no, president of the Chaum Anti-Aging center, confirmed Owens’ visit to the newspaper.

“Mr. Owens starts with therapy Monday followed by the collecting and storing of his stem cells the next day,” Lee said.

The Times reports that the six-time Pro Bowler was recommended to Lee by renowned American surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

“We do have our branch hospital in the United States, and Dr. Andrews advised Owens to contact it first, which then led him to visit our office here,” Lee said.

Illegal in the U.S., stem-cell therapy is legal in many parts of the world, including South Korea.
