You know it’s a busy day when the suggestion of Terrell Owens joining Chad Ochocinco in Cincinnati flies completely below the radar. But we’re getting around to this one now.

It was during Super Bowl week when Ochocinco lobbied publically for Owens to join him as a teammate. Now, per Geoff Hobson of, indications are the Bengals indeed are one of the teams interested in Owens.

Hobson includes Owens on a list of veteran receivers — now sans Kevin Walter — the Bengals will investigate on the free-agent market, joining Antonio BryantChris Chambers and Josh Reed. While he suggests the Bengals are in favor of a one-year deal and won’t pay top dollar, it also appears the team won’t stick with the status quo, either — the release of 32-year-old WR Laveranues Coles one year into a four-year, $28 million contract is proof positive.

Owens is joined on the list of unrestricted free agent receivers by Bryant, Chambers, Reed, Torry Holt and Derrick Mason. The Lions nabbed Nate Burleson off the market early, and Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy suggests the Dolphins remain the favorite to land Bryant.

As the thin list becomes even more thin, maybe T.O. joining Ochocinco isn’t that far-fetched after all.
