The Patriots have one former high-profile Bengals receiver on the roster. They could soon have two.
Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that receiver T.J. Houshmandazadeh will visit the Patriots on Monday.
Houshmandzadeh, who played for the Ravens in 2010 after being cut by the Seahawks, has drawn little attention during free agency. Apart from a rumor last week linking him to the Colts, his memorable name rarely has been largely forgotten.
The 10-year veteran joined the Bengals the same year as Chad Ochocinco. Houshmandzadeh has 616 career receptions for 7,091 yards and 43 touchdowns.
Whether it leads to anything more remains to be seen. Informed of the news via IM (remember, we’re 14-year-old girls), resident Patriots homer Rosenthal said, “Ugh. Man, I hope they don’t sign him.”
At least he didn’t say “OMG.”
