|CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to a contract with receiver Terrell Owens, who is expected to report to training camp in a couple of days, a person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press.
Owens wanted to play for the Bengals, who offered a deal on Monday looking to add another deep threat to their offense. He accepted the offer on Tuesday, said the person who confirmed the deal, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had made no announcement.
