Bengals and WR Terrell Owens Appear to Be a Match

It seems growing that the Bengals appear to have interest in Terrell Owens, and the connection to the Bengals is growing according to sources.

ESPN’s James Walker, the AFC North blogger, wrote the following Friday about Owens and the chances of him possibly being a Bengal at somepoint:

Quarterback Carson Palmer has been working out regularly with Owens in California and has been highly impressed, according to a team source. Palmer has gone so far as to tell Bengals officials what an asset Owens could be and how much talent he still has.

If nothing else, it has gotten Cincinnati thinking and talking about a receiver it hosted for a free-agent visit in March. Back then the Bengals opted for Antonio Bryant, but a team that has been short-handed at wide receiver knows it never hurts to stockpile talent at the position.

Owens also has another strong supporter in Chad Ochocinco, his close friend and reality TV colleague. The two have helped each other promote their respective shows on VH1.

Another Bengals source said Owens’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, visited Cincinnati this week, though it is possible he was there for Ochocinco’s football camp.

Earlier this week, Rosenhaus said he was “very confident” that Owens would have a new team “within the next few weeks.”

The Bengals have been consistent in being one of the teams mentioned in the Owens sweepstakes, even though no team has stepped up to take his services. Now more than ever though, the Bengals could be the top team to want to take a chance on his services.

  1. Just what the Bengals need – not one but two problem children. Paul Brown must be rolling over in his grave right about now.

    Hopefully, this is nothing but a rumor.

  2. James Brown says:

    LOOK OUT AFC NORTH!!!!!.Great Move I hope they sign him.
