Brown Wants Owens; Palmer’s Approval Could Go A Long Way

National Football Post has the latest on the T.O. situation, basically saying that Mike Brown wants him, and it will come down to if the veteran wide out wants to join the defending AFC North champs or not.

“There’s a reason why the Rams pulled out of the TO bidding—the asking price hasn’t come down,” the Enquirer reports.

Earlier this offseason, it was reported that Owens was looking for at least $5 million per year.

“I would rather have him line up on our side of the ball compared to the other side,” Bengals owner Mike Brown said. “He’s a good player. He changes field position. He makes a lot of long plays that win games. I’ve seen him do it against us. I’d like him to be here and do it against someone else.”

A recommendation from Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer is carrying some weight.

“I think Carson’s comments to me they resonate well,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “I know when Carson has something important to say that when he calls me and I call back from an unknown number and he answers I know he wants to talk. I know something was important on his mind.”

    Owens makes sense to strengthen the offense of the Bengals and COULD make the offense one of the best in the NFL.

    However, let’s not lose sight of the fact that unless a strong offensive line is in place, the best receivers become irrelevant if Palmer doesn’t have time to find an open receiver.
