Don't Expect a Houshmandzadeh/Bengals Reunion

Cincinnati Enquirer - [Full Article]

Since the $84,000 dollar question of if the Bengals would be interested in a reunion with T.J. Houshmandzadeh, coach Marvin Lewis thinks with the current makeup of the receiving corps that it might not be a good fit.

"If our team were constituted differently this would be a great spot for him to be back at," Lewis said. "But right now where we are I don’t know if it would be good for him."

Lewis said that he spoke with Houshmandzadeh via text messages yesterday and that he has been contacted by other teams about the 10-year veteran.

"It’s unfortunate that T.J. got released. He’s going to get another opportunity. He’ll make the most of that opportunity and I’ll be happy for him," Lewis said. "I had people call and contact me as far as T.J. and I gave him a true, honest appraisal and a very honest one. T.J. helped us get where we are today. He’s a good, young pro and a good man and he did a lot of good leading in this building."

When asked if the Bengals had or would at least consider it, Lewis said: "Well you consider anything. Other than a hole in the head."
