Following a TMZ report that T.O. was “very close” to signing, a source close to the situation told PFT that it wasn’t true. Carson Palmer reportedly hopes that changes soon.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Palmer and Owens have been working out regularly together in California, and Palmer has been “highly impressed.” The quarterback reportedly told the Bengals that Owens could be an asset to the team.
(Apparently Palmer just doesn’t have enough reality show divas in his life.)
It sounds like the Bengals are at least contemplating a move. Perhaps they want to see how Antonio Bryant and Matt Jones look first.
Jones resides squarely on the roster bubble, and ESPN’s Chris Mortensen writes that Bryant’s knee was still a problem during the offseason. Should Bryant’s knee not recover, perhaps the Bengals would be ready to take on another problem waiting to happen.
