Post Bengals agree to contract with WR Owens

CINCINNATI (AP)—The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a contract with receiver Terrell Owens(notes), who is expected to report to training camp in a couple of days, a person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press.

Owens wanted to play for the Bengals, who offered a deal on Monday looking to add another deep threat to their offense. He accepted the offer on Tuesday, said the person who confirmed the deal, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had made no announcement.

The Bengals report for training camp Wednesday in Georgetown, Ky. Owens is expected to arrive for the first day of workouts Thursday.

Receiver Chad Ochocinco(notes) is one of Owens’ close friends, and welcomed him on his Twitter feed. Ochocinco lobbied for the team to sign Owens and has dubbed the two of them Batman and Robin.

I don't like the move. They added Antonio Bryant earlier in the offseason so they must really hate what they've seen of him. In addition, they have several younger WR's who need playing time to develop. Lastly, can TO and Ocho coexist?

At minimum, you'll be able to make a short 30 min SNL type show just on their antics...

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP)—Terrell Owens(notes) is a late arrival.

The Cincinnati Bengals’ latest addition missed his overnight flight and had to take a later one Thursday, delaying his debut during the first day of workouts at training camp.

The Bengals had planned on him arriving early in the day, taking his physical and signing his contract while the rest of the team worked out in the morning. They’d scheduled an introductory news conference after the morning practice, then expected him to join in an evening workout.

The news conference was rescheduled until after the evening practice.

makes no sense, they have a ton of young, quality receivers.

Float some of those cuts this way.

IF he's cut from the Bengals b/c of this.. I'd take a look at Quan Crosby.

It is an interesting pick up, but it can only make that team better. I'm not sure if they just played over their heads last year and got lucky that the Steelers didn't play like the Steelers, or if they were really that good. I tend to think that they played over their heads. I can see them going 8-8 this year and missing the playoffs. I think Baltimore is coming out of the AFC North this year.

Terrell Owens carries Chad Ochocinco's pads
Posted by Michael David Smith on July 31, 2010 8:53 AM ET
We never expected players carrying each other's pads back to the locker room after training camp practices to become one of the most talked-about stories during the summer of 2010, but here we are: New Bengals receiver Terrell Owens is carrying the pads for teammate Chad Ochocinco.

Owens isn't a rookie, but he is the new guy in Cincinnati, and he says he's fine with carrying Ochocinco's pads for as long as he's no longer considered the new guy.

"I guess until he tells me I'm good to go," Owens said. "I don't have a problem with it. Whatever Chad says, Chad gets."

That attitude puts Owens in the same company as Rams rookie Mardy Gilyard, but in contrast to Cowboys rookie Dez Bryant, who first refused to carry Roy Williams' pads, then said he didn't know he was breaking with NFL tradition, and now has much more important things to worry about.

Overall, Owens says he's happy in Cincinnati and just doing his best to fit into the offense.

"It's getting better, and that's the thing with this offense," Owens said. "It's not easy, but I feel like I'm a rookie all over again, but it will come around."

Did you guys hear when the commentator said that it should've been the other way around? He said Roy should've carried Bryant's pads but he would probably drop them
