Sources have confirmed that Terrell Owens has signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Owens, the wide receiver who has made a splash everywhere he has went (including Buffalo...BUFFALO!), will join forces with Chad Ochocinco.

After playing for the San Francisco 49ers, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Bills wide receiver was rumored to be joining to the Bengals earlier in the offseason, but the likelihood of it was shot down soon after the team decided to sign Antonio Bryant, formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bryant, who is coming off an injury plagued season in Tampa, is likely to end up beginning the season of the PUP list for the Bengals.

Enter, Terrell Owens.

What will Owens bring to the Bengals?

Maybe he can revive his career with Carson Palmer at the quarterback position? Maybe his production will skyrocket now that Ochocinco is lining up opposite him? Or maybe he'll simply be just another wide receiver that goes by a nickname instead of his actual name?

All wrong. Well, minus the last thing. That's actually true.

With T.O. and Ochocinco heading the receiving corps for the Bengals, Cincinnati is now the dynamic monopoly of the national television.

Say what?

Come on, man. Don't you guys watch the T.O. ShowChad Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch?

VH1, the network that brilliantly paired the two wideouts on Sunday evenings for families around the world to watch together, now can begin its next project: The Cincinnati Bengals: Where Do We Go From  Here?

The show will feature what only Ochocinco's show has provided on a limited basis - both divas. Owens and Ochocinco. The hot spot that is Cincinnati. A team that can only make good decisions.

With both wideouts in the mix, the new program will combine the drama of the T.O. show - Owens going on dates, yelling at his agents, sitting in a hyperbaric chamber, eating popcorn and doing sit-ups.

As for Ochocinco's element, the show will not be cheap when it comes to forcing women to doing random exercises, getting drunk and going to sleep and trashy white females. Did I mention a tournament-style bracket will somehow be mixed in?

Cincinnati Bengals fans and VH1 viewers alike can only hope for one more thing: B-Twice.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver and deep threat, Bernard Berrian, has made a weekly appearance on The Ultimate Catch, providing Ochocinco with terrific insight and shedding knowledge on all situations.

One can only hope that at least the program can remain on cable television for us all to watch and enjoy, and wait to erupt.
