The St. Louis Rams have intensified discussions in hopes of signing free agent Terrell Owens, according to sources close to the player and team.
The Cincinnati Bengals, as reported by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, are also engaged in talks with Owens.
The Bengals signed free-agent receiver Antonio Bryant during the offseason but Bryant has struggled so far. According to a team source, that has motivated the Bengals to take another look at Owens.
One source said the Rams have gotten very aggressive in their pursuit of Owens and it's possible that Owens will sign with the Rams or Bengals within the next 48 to 72 hours.
Once Owens lands on a roster, we'll analyze his position in the fantasy world. He would have more value in Cincinnati than St. Louis, because while he might take a back seat to Chad Ochocinco in the Queen City, the Bengals are a much better team than the Rams and have Carson Palmer at quarterback as opposed to journeyman A.J. Feeley and unproven Sam Bradford.
