Owens Could Sign Soon
Chris Mortensen is   reporting the Rams are “seriously pursuing”   wide receiver Terrell Owens.


Mortensen said the Bengals are very interested as well.

Analysis
Owens was always going to sign with somebody, and both of these teams would present good situations for him.

The Bengals would definitely be the better option fantasy wise.

Carson Palmer is still a good quarterback, and Ochocinco and the running game would take a lot of pressure off Owens.

The problem in Cincinnati would be playing time, but with Bryant’s knee flaring up (see below), Owens might be able to start.

In St. Louis, Owens would be the unquestioned guy, but he would likely have to deal with a rookie quarterback and most of the opposing defenses attention on passing downs.

Owens finished as the 25th best wide out last season, and he should land somewhere around there again with either of these teams this season.  

Bryant’s Knee a Problem
Chris Mortensen is   reporting Antonio Bryant’s   knee was still a problem this offseason.

Analysis
This report clarifies why the Bengals would be interested in Terrell Owens.

Antonio Bryant is a guy I loved, and, until further notice, still love, going into the season.

Playing opposite Chad Ochocinco should give him a lot of opportunities, and, unlike Laveranues Coles last season, Bryant is actually young enough to take advantage of those opportunities.

If his knee is bothering him, however, he will not be able to be very effective.

I still like Bryant as a sleeper, but do not reach to high to get him.  

Cutler Ready for a Breakout?
Tom Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily-News   made some great points about how well Cutler will do in Mike Martz system.

Domowitch does think Cutler will throw for a lot of yards and touchdowns, but does not expect his interception numbers to improve.

Domowitch points to Warner’s 40 picks in two seasons with Martz and Bulger’s 22 in ’03 as signs Cutler’s decision making will not improve.

Analysis
There is not much more to say.

Cutler should put up huge numbers, but will also throw a lot of picks.

Martz has said Cutler is the most talented quarterback he has worked with, but he is certainly not the most judicious passer.

Cutler has an opportunity to throw for 35 touchdowns this season, but he also could throw 30 interceptions.

Continue to draft him as a low-end number one quarterback.
