So what will the Bengals do, now that they’ve added Terrell Owens to a receiver depth chart that includes Chad Ochocinco and Antonio Bryant?
Per a league source, Bryant is a strong candidate to land on the Physically Unable to Perform list to start training camp. The source says that it’s believed Bryant won’t be ready to practice when camp opens, given lingering knee problems.
The move would open the door for Owens to earn a starting spot across from Chad Ochocinco, which would also make it easier for T.O. to reach all or most of the $2 million in performance-based incentives he is eligible to earn.
The Bengals signed Bryant to a four-year, $28 million contract in March, not long after T.O. visited the team. There has been some scuttlebutt that the Bengals could cut the cord on Bryant; much of that depends on the amount of money they’d lose by cutting him, versus the amount of additional money they’d avoid paying out by not having him around.
