The big news today is the arrival of Terrel Owens to the Bengals' training camp. But that is not the only story coming out of Georgetown.
Antonio Bryant's Knee – Don't want to be an alarmist but the ink is barely dry on that $28 million contract. He's admittedly not 100% and the fact he had surgery on said knee a year ago makes it much more likely this is a chronic problem and not something he'll get over quickly. Talked to one "football guy" at practice this morning who said after watching Bryant run, "well, I can see why they signed T.O." Hmmmmm.
Cedric Benson's Meeting With the Commish – Benson said today he had a good meeting with Roger Goodell but stopped short of saying he doesn't expect to be suspended. Even if he does miss time I doubt it would be more than a game. Benson has done a great job keeping his nose clean since he got here but what would you do? Stay home during the off season while your agent works on a big $$$ contract with the Bengals or put yourself in a bar with a bunch of drunk college kids and allow yourself to be "sucker-punched?" Be smart Ced.
Andre Smith – this one should really be higher on the list. Can't practice now and could be at least 2 or 3 weeks away from taking the field. C'mon. Marvin told us Monday that Smith had issues related to his surgically repaired foot AND HIS WEIGHT. Translation – his foot still hurts because that's what being just south of four bills does to your joints. Too early to call Smith a bust? Probably. But it's trending in that direction.
