We reported earlier today that two teams are interested in receiver Terrell Owens.
One of them, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, is the Bengals.
The disclosure comes as a surprise. Receiver Chad Ochocinco has been lobbying aggressively for T.O. to be added to the team, but all reports have indicated that the Bengals don’t want to bring in another aging wideout.
Hobson says that Owens is one of several receivers in whom the team is interested. Others include Antonio Bryant, Kevin Walter, Chris Chambers, and Josh Reed.
Hobson believes that the Bengals are merely putting out feelers, and that they’ll do a deal when the market settles down.
