With all the drama going on with the NBA, yall been sleep’n on the NFL huh. Well the NFL has been action packed son. Sources are saying theres no deal yet but Mr Owens has been working out with Mr Palmer.

Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer has been working out regularly with Owens in California and has been highly impressed, according to a team source. Palmer has gone so far as to tell Bengals officials what an asset Owens could be and how much talent he still has.

If nothing else, it has gotten Cincinnati thinking and talking about a receiver it hosted for a free-agent visit in March. Back then the Bengals opted forAntonio Bryant, but a team that has been short-handed at wide receiver knows it never hurts to stockpile talent at the position.

Owens also has another strong supporter in Chad Ochocinco, his close friend and reality TV colleague. The two have helped each other promote their respective shows on VH1.

Another Bengals source said Owens’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, visited Cincinnati this week, though it is possible he was there for Ochocinco’s football camp.

Earlier this week, Rosenhaus said he was “very confident” that Owens would have a new team “within the next few weeks.”

“We will see as we get closer [to training camp],” a Bengals source said Friday night. “Nothing now that I know of.”
