The Bengals aren’t only trying to retain free-agent wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh by making a lucrative financial offer. John Clayton of ESPN reports that Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer is making constant calls to his friend in an attempt to keep him in Cincinnati.
Houshmandzadeh will have plenty to think about tonight in his Minneapolis hotel room. The key issue will be financial. The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting the Bengals have an offer on the table higher than the deals Plaxico Burress (five years, $35 million, $11 million guaranteed) and Hines Ward (five years, $33 million) received.
That’s a pretty rich offer considering the Vikings and Seahawks are believed to be offering three-year deals.
~ A nice post to keep everyone on edge. We all want him so bad.... dang it.
