It has been reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Cincinnati Bengals will not bring wide receiver Terrell Owens back for a second season.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated also reported the same thing on Sunday.
Owens was injured in Week 15 and had surgery on his knee on Monday, but that will not bring him back to play for the Bengals next season.
Owens performed at a high level this season after a miserable year in Buffalo in 2009.
Owens bounced back for 72 receptions for 983 yards and nine touchdowns.
However, it has not been the play of T.O., but is has been his comments that hurt him once again.
How fitting for Owens?
Owens has been known for controversial statements throughout his successful career in the NFL and this time he blamed Bengals coaches for their recent struggles on offense.
There are many teams that can use a wide receiver with Owens' talents, but that does not necessarily mean they would want to sign Terrell Owens.
Despite the history of T.O., he will likely find somewhere to play next season as he has done the past two years with the Bills and the Bengals.
Owens played his final game as a Bengal this past Sunday.
