Yeah, it’s official. Terrell Ochouno has joined the Cincy Bengals right next to Chad. As I predicted some time ago. =)
The Cincinnati Bengals and the controversial wide receiver agreed to a one-year contract today, according to multiple reports. The deal is worth $4 million ($2 million in base salary, $2 million in incentives), according to Profootballtalk.com.
Fellow Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco confirmed the news on his Twitter account with:
“My homeboy is a Bengal all our games have been moved to pay-per-view.”
The Bengals report for training camp Wednesday in Georgetown, Ky. Owens is expected to arrive for the first day of workouts Thursday. The 36-year-old Owens is playing for his sixth NFL team. He played for the 49ers from 1996-2003, the Eagles from 2004-2005, the Cowboys from 2006-2008 and the Bills in 2009.
The Bengals signed free-agent WR Antonio Bryant to a four-year, $29 million deal back in March and were seemingly looking good at the receiver position. Bryant was signed to start opposite Ochocinco, but Bryant dealt with knee problems most of last season.
