The Bengals upgraded their WR core this past week with the signing of Antonio Bryant, but according to NFL Network, it doesn’t mean that the team isn’t still taking a look at Terrell Owens, who remains the highest profile wide out without a team. The station says the Raiders are also in the mix:
The idea of Terrell Owens landing in Cincinnati is still possible, NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora said Thursday, but recent rumors surfacing of T.O. headed to Oakland? Not so much. La Canfora opines that if the Raiders had serious interest in Owens, they already could have brought him in for a visit. “He’s going to be a bargain play for anyone now,” La Canfora told host Fran Charles. “That’s where he is in his career. That’s the reality. That was the reality last year.”
No one is going to put a long term deal in front of T.O. right now, just look at what Buffalo did last season, and that’s likely to be the same type of deal he’ll get this time around.
