    Re: AFC North News: Bengals discuss Terrell Owens deal; Rams out

    T.O. drops too many passes for my taste. Our offense finds enough ways to kill a drive without adding a receiver who has the dropsies. Let's develop our young guys so we can continue to stay strong. I'm not a believer in signing these one and two year guys before training camp. If injuries hit the WR corp then think about it but not now.

    The Jets are doing everything they can to establish themselves within the pantheon of hated teams (including Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, New England, Oakland, and Dallas).

    Jets Show Interest In Terrell Owens
    The New York Jets, who once traded for Brett Favre and signed LaDainian Tomlinson this offseason, now are exploring the idea of signing Terrell Owens, according to league sources.

    The Jets have contacted Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and have debated the idea of bringing the high-profile wide receiver to training camp.

    A deal between the Jets and Owens still is considered a long shot; one person estimated the Jets' chances at signing Owens at "20 percent."

    Another NFL source told ESPN.com's Tim Graham that the Jets' interest in Owens was "very minimal."

    Ultimately, this is similar to the situation in which the Jets contacted quarterback JaMarcus Russell but never signed him.

    Still, the Jets are debating Owens' acquisition, as coach Rex Ryan wants any player who improves the team's chances of winning.

    The Cincinnati Bengals remain the favorite to sign Owens.

    The Bengals are offering an incentive-laden contract, and they have told Owens, 36, he has until Wednesday to agree to a deal.

    Even so, now that the Jets have made contact with Owens, the receiver has options in the days ahead.

    If Owens does choose Cincinnati, he could be paired on the outside with Chad Ochocinco. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has said recent acquisition Antonio Bryant could move into an inside slot position.

    I was just about to add the Jets story. It doesn't make sense for him to go to the Jets. They don't pass enough and the media would have a field day with TO. I can see the headlines now. I see him going to the Jets because of those reasons

    I would be fun to keep track of who drops more of Sanchez's passes, Edwards or Owens...they should trade Santonio for Nate Washington to complete the butterfinger trifecta.

    Do the Jets really want to spend that much on receivers? I doubt it. Unless his travails have caused TO to lower his price that much. If so, start spreadin' the news...

    Great, another team in the division adds a talented receiver while the Steelers lose their best receiver. Even the people who try to convince themselves that T.O. is that good anymore must admit that Owens is better than ARE or Battle. Well at least Baby Rooney can scream to run the ball more (like that is going to solve everything).

    Baby Rooney and Goodell must have some great conversations while standing on their supposed moral high ground.
    The Steelers’ went through seven consecutive drafts (2003-09) without taking an offensive lineman in the first two rounds, the longest such streak by any franchise this century.

    The scary part to me is that while both the Ravens and Bengals have upgraded their WR corps in this offseason, they can also claim to have better starting RB's. While Mendy is great, I would say that right now Rice and Benson are better. Ben is the best QB in the division- when he plays, but Lefty will probably compete with Delhomme for the cellar. Granted, an offense is more than the sum of its parts, but it still gives one pause.
