The Bengals have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Antonio Bryant on a four-year contract, reported Jocklife.com, a Web site owned by his agent, C. Lamont Smith. Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco also tweeted about the deal Wednesday and said it was signed.
The news comes on the same day that free-agent WR Terrell Owens is visiting the Bengals.
Bryant had a career-high 83 catches for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns in 2008 with the Buccaneers, but he was bothered by knee issues last season and finished with just 39 receptions for 600 yards and four TDs.
UPDATE: The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Bryant signed a four-year, $28 million contract that could reach $29 million with incentives. According to the newspaper, the deal might not be announced until later Wednesday or Thursday because Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is out of town for competition committee meetings.
