Baltimore Ravens are interested in Terrell Owens?

New, comments

Chad Ochocinco has been working Mike Brown, at least through the media, to sign veteran wide receiver Terrell Owens. Chad even offered a pay cut to bring the receiver to Cincinnati. Little, if anything, has been reported in terms of interest from the Bengals for the receiver, who will be the third player in NFL history to surpass 15,000 yards receiving next season; Owens' 147 total touchdowns ranks third in NFL history.

Adam Schefter recently tweeted that the Bengals signing Owens "isn't happening" and on Friday, Marvin Lewis elected not to comment.

However, that's not necessarily the end of the whole Owens story from a Bengals perspective. Geoff Hobson writes:

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Saturday at the NFL scouting combine that his club has interest in Owens and that they feel he is coming off a good year in Buffalo at age 36. Harbaugh smiled when asked about his relationship with Owens while they were both with the Eagles.

"I was coaching special teams and he played wide receiver so he was on the hands team," Harbaugh said. "I related to him through that.

 "I’ve always said I’ve got a lot of respect for T.O.," Harbaugh said. "I think he’s a good guy and a good player."

Owens has had relative success against the Bengals. In three of the four regular season games, he's scored a touchdown with 90 yards receiving or more in three times.
