TERRELL OWENS TO THE BENGALS
Just when you thought the Cincinnati Bengals had began to right the ship, this happens… It appears that the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms with disgruntled wide out and reality show star Terrell Owens, $2 million for 2 years (a bargain in my opinion). We all know Owens’ history with his quarterbacks: Jeff Garcia, Donovan McNabb, Tony Romo. I don’t think the Buffalo Bills ever had a quarterback for Owens to tear apart. The Bengals made the playoffs last year, the first time in a long time, only to get bounced out in the first round. They couldn’t make it work with a Chad Ochocinco and a humble T.J. Housmanzadeh combo. What’s to say they can do it with an Owens and Ocho combo? I fear for Carson Palmer’s reputation, let alone life. He’s always been one of those silent leaders and with Owens inevitable blowup midway through the season, who knows how this one’s gonna turn out. On the plus side, Owens still has a couple prime year left over. At $2 million for 2 years, this can turn out to be the steal of the offseason, if Marv Lewis can keep control of his team. I’ll tell you one more thing, I’m glad Owens is headed to the AFC North. Remember when Owens mocked Ray Lewis a few years ago by doing his dance in the endzone. Payback time for Ray Ray and the rest of the Ravens defense.
