T.O. Brings his act to Cincinnati

The Bengals today signed flamboyant Wide Receiver Terrell Owens to a one year deal for $2 million, with another $2 million possible with incentives.  T.O. will join Chad Ochocinco, in an effort to improve Cincinnati's weak passing game, which ranked only 25th in the NFL last season.

If it doesn't make the Bengals better, at least it makes them more interesting.  Chad Ochocinco is already referring to the duo as Batman and Robin, although I prefer to call them the "Ambiguously Gay Duo".

Kevin Says:  I really don't think this move makes Cincinnati a better team.  The Bengals rode a power running game featuring Cedric Benson last season, so a vertical passing game may not be in the works.  The Bengals already signed WR Antonio Bryant earlier in the offseason, and drafted a TE in the first round.  At the end of the day, there might not be enough receptions to go around.  Neither Ochocinco nor Owens strike me as team-first players.  The Bengals should be competitive nonetheless.
