Bryant to Bengals: Good move


The Cincinnati Bengals probably won't be adding Terrell Owens, but they are adding receiver Antonio Bryant.

That is a great move for the Bengals.  Bryant reportedly agreed to a four-year deal for $28 million from the Bengals.

Bryant has some off-field issues, but he is a big-play receiver who should be a nice compliment to Chad Ochocinco.

There aren't a lot of free-agent moves that I've liked, but this is one of them. The Bengals had big problems stretching the field last season when Chris Henry went down with an injury and then was tragically killed.

The Bengals became more of a running team last year, but they need to give the ball more to Carson Palmer again. With Bryant, that probably will happen.

This is a passing league and the Bengals need to get back more to an up-tempo offense. The addition of Bryant will help open things up for Ochocinco.

Bryant was bothered by knee problems last year and had 39 catches for 600 yards and four touchdowns. He had 83 catches for 1,248 yards and seven touchdowns in 2008 for the Bucs. That's the kind of production the Bengals need to get out of Bryant. If they do, watch out for that passing game.
