T.O. to the Bengals is Only a Signature Away From Happening

Just what the world needed: the new TMZ Sports Department to start gaining credibility. On the totem pole of respectable sports sites, TMZ ranks right below us and right above this blog. However, thanks to their Terrell Owens report Friday, they are slowly moving up.

On Friday, the same website that shows live feeds of Linsday Lohan court hearings, one upped everyone in the NFL world (Adam Schefter, Everyone at ESPN, Profootballtalk, Chris Mortensen, Jay Glazer, Jason La Canfora, Peter King) when they reported that Terrell Owens signing with the Bengals was 'imminent.'

(Was Adam Schefter asleep at the wheel when the T.O. rumors started. ESPN's favorite insider refuted TMZ's initial Terrell Owens to the Bengals report)

After TMZ broke the news, every sports reporter in the country laughed at them, then they laughed some more and then when they were finally done laughing, they 'rebuked' the Terrell Owens to the Bengals story with their own 'sources.'

Today, it looks like TMZ's tip paid off. At 4:42 p.m., Enquirer Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy tweeted:

Why did this all happen?

Why didn't we just sign T.O. in March?

Great questions.

Back in March, the Bengals went with Antonio Bryant, even though everybody knows that there are middle school chess players with more receiving talent than Antonio Bryant.

The Bengals finally realized this and now they're trying to bring T.O. to town.

Anyway, lets just point out one more thing: there is a currently someone on the Bengals coaching staff that is going to have a resume that looks like this:

Convinced Cincinnati to sign untalented, washed up receiver Laveranues Coles to completely overpriced contract.

Convinced Cincinnati to sign untalented, washed up receiver Antonio Bryant to completely overpriced contract.

Alright, we're going to close with this, here's our final take from Bryant's March signing, as we wrote on March 10:

Final Take: If we were Mike Brown, besides selling the team to a really rich, win-at-all costs owner, we would probably have gone with T.O. It would have been cheaper and we would have only had to sign him to a one or two year deal.

Coming tomorrow: TNT NBA sideline reporter Craig Sager doesn't just wear ridiculous outfits on the basketball court, he wears them on the golf course.
