The man at the very top of the Bengals organization has ended any speculation about the team’s interest in Terrell Owens by freely admitting the team wants the VH1 star/possession receiver.
“It is up to him,” Bengals owner Mike Brown said today at the team’s annual training camp media luncheon Monday. “We have interest. We are talking to him.”
The Rams are also reportedly considering making an offer, which could help decide Owens’ priorities. If he truly wants to contend, he’ll take whatever the Bengals offer him.
If money remains the priority, St. Louis will probably get the nod.
Then again, Owens may be more concerned with star power and the ability to generate headlines than any dollar amount. If that’s the case, becoming the Joker to Chad Ochocinco’s Batman makes the most sense.
