If you believe what NFL players post on Twitter, then in a matter of hours, Terrell Owens will be a Cincinnati Bengal. 

Late this afternoon, Owens replied to a tweet by the Bengals' Chad Ochocinco, all but saying he was on his way to Cincinnati to sign a contract with the Bengals.

As far as how "conversations" go on Twitter, here's how it went down between Ocho and T.O.:

OGOchoCinco @terrellowens  hey where you at? You sign on that dotted line yet
terrellowens @OGOchoCinco  i'm on the plane!

So what does this mean for Bengals fans? It means that Carson Palmer has the best one-two receiving combination that he's had since T.J. Houshmandzadeh left for Seattle after the 2008 season. 

It also means that the Bengals will have the two most over-hyped bad boys (in perception only) amongst wide receivers in the league. And quite honestly, that should be good for the Bengals. 

Both receivers are huge competitors, and should only make each other better as they compete for passes from Palmer. They also respect each other immensely and are friends off the field, which should negate any finger pointing that may have gone on in past years for either player. 

It's a dream combination for Bengals fans, and it looks like that dream will likely come true in the next few hours. 

Let the media circus and celebratory antics begin!
