The New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady are reportedly closing in on a contract extension with the NFL regular season just around the corner. When asked about the pending negotiations, Brady chose to avoid the topic while holding the Cincinnati Bengals as his number one priority. “The reality is I have a job to do and my job isn’t revolved around worrying about what my future is right now,” he said. “My job is to be the best leader for this team that I can be, and really to get ready to play the Bengals, and play really well. Because of that, I think it’s pretty selfish if I sit here and that’s all I’m worried about — myself.”
Veteran wide-out Randy Moss recently expressed his feelings in regards to contract issues with the Patriots. The 7x Pro Bowler caught 83 passes for 1,264 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. “We’re glad he’s here from the game on Sunday and that’s what we’re worried about,” said team director of play personnel Nick Caserio. “He’s going to help our football team, I’m sure. That’s what we’re focused on right now.” Patriots vs. Bengals kickoff is set for September 12th at 1:00 PM in Foxboro.
Veteran wide-out Terrell Owens will not only share VH1 time slots with Chad Ochocinco this fall but also receptions from QB Carson Palmer, as he just signed a one-year $2 million contract with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday. The premier receivers/reality television stars are ecstatic to be working together in the same unit, already dubbing themselves Batman and Robin.
Both players were quick to spread the news through their respective Twitter accounts. Ochocinco welcomed Owens and jokingly stated that “all of our games have been moved to pay-per-view, you got to pay to see this.” Owens soon responded with “Ocho Uno is coming 2 town!! Hey Robin, Batman will b there soon!” Chad has been lobbying for the organization to acquire T.O. since the end of the 2009-2010 regular season.
Bengals owner Mike Brown is confident that there won’t be any locker room issues despite the high profile personalities involved. “Yes, people can make mistakes,” he said. “It doesn’t mean that they go on the rest of their lives making mistakes. They can get their ship pointed in the right direction. This is a 36-year-old man. He’s been through a lot. He’s proven as a player and as a person.” Owens proved to be quiet both on and off the field last season with the Buffalo Bills, catching 55 passes for 829 yards and five touchdowns. Cincinnati Bengals tickets are now available!
Veteran wide-out Terrell Owens is traveling to Cincinnati to discuss a potential future with the Bengals organization. Chad Ochocinco has been pushing for T.O. to sign with the squad since the end of the 2009-2010 regular season. “There’s always been the speculation and perception out there,” said Owens. “Chad kick-started it and lobbied to have me here as a teammate and I welcome it with open arms.”
Owens is coming off his least productive season to date, producing five touchdowns and 829 yards from 55 catches for the Buffalo Bills. In 2008 for the Dallas Cowboys he caught 69 passes for 1,052 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Bengals have yet to publicly address their interest in Owens. They also recently met with former Tampa Bay receiver Antonio Bryant on Tuesday. Check back for more 2010 NFL off-season updates!
Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco just recently signed up to entertain once again. The NFL’s most outgoing personality is scheduled to appear on the next season of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Ochocinco has been fined a number of times due to end zone celebrations, but commissioner Roger Goodell will certainly find it difficult to punish the Pro Bowler this time around on center stage.
The upcoming season will feature some of the most popular celebrities to date. The 2010 cast consists of Evan Lysacek, Erin Andrews, Pamela Anderson, Buzz Aldrin, Nicole Scherzinger, Shannen Doherty, Aiden Turner, Niecy Nash, Kate Gosselin and Jake Pavelka. “It’s definitely one of our strongest cast lineups ever,” said executive producer Conrad Green. “Pound for pound, it should be really fascinating watching.” “Dancing With the Stars” will return to national television Monday, March 22nd.
Rookie Mark Sanchez produced a near perfect 139.4 QB rating on his way to leading the New York Jets past the AFC North Division champion Cincinnati Bengals 24-14 Saturday at Paul Brown Stadium. The 23-year old showed a great amount of poise in his post-season debut following New York’s rollercoaster-like season. “I see him getting better and better each day on the practice field,” said Jets head coach Rex Ryan. “What a job he’s done. I think he’s tired of hearing he’s the weak link on this football team.”
Cincinnati posted the initial points with a Carson Palmer Laveranues Coles connection eight minutes into the first quarter. Shonn Green broke free for 39 yards early in the second to tie it up at seven apiece. Sanchez produced the go-ahead score minutes later with a 45 yard pass to Dustin Keller.
The second half featured a TD from each squad before Jay Feely increased the deficit to 10 with a 20 yard field goal with five minutes to play.

The New York Jets (9-7) are set to rematch the Cincinnati Bengals (10-6) to kick off this year’s NFL post-season. After ending the Indianapolis Colts run at perfection in Week 15, Mark Sanchez and crew put on a show at home during a convincing 37-0 win over Cincinnati to notch the remaining AFC Wild Card spot.
This time around it may not be so easy for New York as they travel to Paul Brown Stadium, where the well rested Carson Palmer and Cedric Benson wait to give the league’s top ranked defense a run for their money. “We’re trying to win the thing,” said NY head coach Rex Ryan. “That’s our goal. To get to this point and not have that as your ultimate goal, then I don’t think you’re going to be successful. I think you have to visualize yourself being successful and then try to go out and make it happen.”
Chad Ochocinco has been struggling lately with knee problems but should be cleared to suit up on Saturday. In his last matchup against stand-out cornerback Darrelle Revis, #85 was held to zero receptions for the first time since 2003. Earlier this week Chad was concerned about the injury but later found himself practicing just two days later. He commended his teammates through his Twitter account, saying “really good practice today on both sides of the ball, we had Popeye’s for snack after practice, best 2 piece I’ve had n a while.”

The NFL just recently fined Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver and marketing specialist Chad Ochocinco $30,000 for wearing a sombrero after scoring a touchdown in their week 13 win over the Detroit Lions. Ochocinco, a man who’s already been in trouble for his previously hilarious antics, was sent the following statement from league officials:
“During the second quarter of the Bengals game, you were observed gesturing for, and then wearing, a decorative poncho and sombrero in the bench area…Compounding your violation is the fact that your actions were premeditated and deliberate. Prior to the game on your publicly accessible Twitter account, you posted the following: ‘What I’ve planned for today will get me fined when I score but it’s so worth it.’”
The Bengals are currently 9-3 and sitting atop the NFC North Division heading into their next game on Sunday against the NFL North leading Minnesota Vikings. Chad has already mapped out his next big performance, tweeting on Tuesday: “Adam this Sunday when I score I’m taking that loud horn from the Viking mascot and using it<–is that a fine to?”
