Former Bengals Wide Receiver Antonio Bryant Being Given A Shot At An NFL Comeback In Seattle

Talk about a trend. Former Bengals wide receivers are making the rounds and we can't help but to observe from our cushy couches, inhaling butter-saturated popcorn while a far more stabilizing situation emerges from Paul Brown Stadium. Terrell Owens, who missed a couple of games and a charity event, was released as a player and owner from the Allen Wranglers. He also fired super-agent Drew Rosenhaus and appeared on the Dr. Phil show.

In the span of four days, Chad Ochocinco was released by the New England Patriots and signed by the Miami Dolphins. Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson officially received a three-game suspension to start the 2012 regular season.

And now according to NFL Insider Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, Antonio Bryant is being given a shot to revive his NFL career, participating at the Seattle Seahawks minicamp, which starts on Tuesday. No contract, that we know of, has been signed but at the very least Bryant will have a shot.

In one respect Bryant isn't like the others. Whereas Batman and Robin left Cincinnati as distractions (either not returning or via trade), and Simpson being a distraction as much upon himself as anyone, Bryant simply signed a contract after the team's on lots of crack medical team gave the front office an all-clear to sign the receiver. After much embarrassment, including the irresponsibility of letting him practice during the first session of training camp (which made Bryant ineligible for PUP), the team released him. Bryant kept a good chunk of his $8 million guaranteed.

We'll be putting together an office pool soon to predict the next former Bengals wide receiver to make the news. Maurice Purify anyone?
