Terrell Owens placed on IR, done as a Bengal?

The Bengals placed wide receiver Terrell Owens on injured reserve Tuesday, officially ending his season and, most likely, his career with the Bengals.

The Bengals announced the move via Twitter (of course), but they failed to mention whether or not Owens would be in the 'Nati next year. That's probably because he won't be -- Adam Schefter of ESPN cites a source indicating Owens' time is done there, and it's a logical conclusion to reach for a number of reasons.

First of all, the Bengals are cheap and Owens won't be signing as cheaply in his second run with them (especially considering he outproduced Chad Ochocinco this year). Secondly, Marvin Lewis is likely gone when his contract runs up. There's a chance Carson Palmer is gone too. Heck, Ocho could be shown the door. It's pretty obvious Owens is going with them (them = whoever goes).

Finally, it was pretty obvious that once the team really sunk into the depths of a losing season that Owens wasn't playing the happy camper role like he did with the Bills last season. Even if the Bengals' ability to manage personnel is terrible (and it is), they'll at least realize the stink he'd make if he returned for a second losing season in Cincy.

And, hey, maybe Owens doesn't want to be there. Although at this stage, it's hard to imagine him turning down any sort of contract that guarantees him playing time and money, especially considering he's likely to end up as a one-year rental once again in 2011.

This was TO's wake up season, and it should have happened about five years ago.  He had the crap scared out of him earlier when NO BODY wanted him and he had to SETTLE for the Bengals.  He put up decent numbers and kept his mouth shut fONLY because he wants another try with a decent team next year, and a good contract.  TEAMS beware, next year will be his LAST and keeping his mouth shut will be a monumentall task, especially if he doesn't have a good year.  Teh best thing he could do for himself and the NFL is RETIRE and take "What's his NUMBER" with him.

USMEagle, he has been arrogant with the media on his own talk show calling out his own coaches, calling out old teammates, calling out players he hasnt changed, he is still an arsehole. I am glad he will never be part of a super bowl team. I would rather the im gonna say it..see the cowboys win a super bowl before TO does. haha ugh i just upset my stomach..

the o-line stinks, livings is a backup, whittworth should be at guard! Palmer takes alot of hits, it's not all about sacks! It doesnt matter who is coaching the team, if Brown won't let them choose their own staff and players! I'm not ready to give up #9 just yet! Although; he definitely can't carry the team by himself, like Peyton can!!!

Cbuck:   Until then I'll just look forward to every fifth year having a good team.

It's nice to see you are catching on to things finally!
