Bengals, Rams Are Reportedly Pursuing Terrell Owens

Back in March, Terrell Owens' agent said he was in active discussions with three teams.

Of course we know by now nothing came of those discussions as he's still a free agent. But all of a sudden, T.O. is drawing interest from at least two teams.

A report surfaced over the weekend that the Rams are in "serious pursuit" of Owens.

The Rams are meeting on Monday morning to make a "firm decision" on Owens. Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports it will be head coach Steve Spagnuolo and GM Billy Devaney making the decision. For the Rams, the move may make sense in that they need weapons for Sam Bradford, who is expected to take over the starting role at some point in 2010. Then again, I'm not sure why someone would want T.O. around their rookie quarterback.

Meanwhile, the Bengals who hosted Owens for a workout early in the offseason, have jumped back into the T.O. sweepstakes.

Per the club's official Twitter account:

Mike brown on t.o. It is up to him. We have interest. We are talking to him

SB Nation's Cincy Jungle suggests this confirms that Antonio Bryant's knee is a concern moving forward.

This, of course, solidifies the theory that Antonio Bryant's knee is a concern -- which we've been suspecting since Friday evening when news of an imminent deal was reported by TMZ. We have a hard time believing that the Bengals would stall the development of their younger receivers for a 37-year old Owens whose skills have largely diminished.
