At some training camps, 15-year veterans are tasked with carrying helmets and shoulder pads for others, and it doesn’t turn in to a national storyline.
We fully expect to see and hear a little bit of everything out of the Bengals this season, and we’re hearing from those on ground that it was Terrell Owens who carried Chad Ochocinco’s helmet and pads back to the locker room after Friday’s practice. It was just two days ago that Ochocinco declared Owens a Hall of Famer and the team’s No. 1 receiver, but that doesn’t mean he’s above hooking up the franchise’s all-time leading receiver.
Apparently with no complaints, either. On Day 2, all is well in The Jungle.
“Whatever Chad says, Chad gets,” Owens said. “I’m not worried at this point in time. I’ve got to get this offense down as quick as I can, get in sync with Carson (Palmer). The most important thing for me at this point is to get on the field and know what I’m doing.”
