Terrell Owens May Have A Hard Time Hitting Incentive Numbers

ESPN's Adam Schefter has details on the incentives Terrell Owens would need to hit to earn an extra $2 million.

T.O. would receive an extra $330,000 for each of these:

60 catches, 100 catches, 900 yards, 1300 yards, 10 touchdowns, 14 touchdowns.

The total would be $2 million.

For a reference, last year T.O. had 55 catches, 829 yards and five touchdowns so he wouldn't have hit any of the benchmarks to earn extra cash.

SB Nation's Cincy Jungle isn't sure if he'll hit those numbers but they do think the T.O. signing will bring a more balanced attack in Cincinnati.

Will he reach those incentives? It should be noted that through all of this, the Bengals still consider themselves a smash mouth offense. Will that change? Probably. But even if they become more balanced, in terms of play-calling, ball distribution might not be enough for Owens to achieve those incentives. Either way, the Bengals literally could have the most balanced offense they've had since the 2005 season.
