The Cincinnati Bengals are in serious need of re-building from the ground up. With Terrell Owens deciding to have knee surgery on Monday, he has officially put himself out of the Bengals locker room. He will no longer partner with Chad Ochocinco, as the Bengals have decided not to resign Terrell Owens for next year. Currently, Owens is ranked among the top six receivers in the NFL in yards and catches. But that won’t do him any good while he’s recovering from surgery and without a contract for next season, if there is one. Owens signed a one-year deal with the Bengals with a $2 million base salary prior to training camp of this season, and the Bengals have fulfilled their end of the agreement. Again…Owen’s big mouth got him in trouble, as he was pointing at the coaching staff for their continuous losses and at least partially inclined the staff to suggest his departure from the Bengals team.
Now he’s without a team for next year. Again. Unfortunately, this may put him in a tight spot, much like Randy Moss has currently with the Tennessee Titans. Few teams may want him, but also quite a few may need him. Perhaps the Seattle Seahawks, the Cleveland Browns or perhaps a reunion with his former quarterback Donovan McNabb somewhere. Wouldn’t that be a sight to see? Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens together again…but dreams can turn into nightmares for either of them.
