Bengals WR Terrell Owens' first and likely only season with the Bengals has ended with a knee injury.
The team announced today following their win over the Browns that Owens would miss the remainder of the year because of an injury he sustained in the first quarter of the Week 15 game. He finished the season with 72 receptions for 983 yards for the 3-11 Bengals.
Owens made headlines last week when he blamed the team's coaches for the poor season. Speaking on his VH1 reality show, the receiver said: "I think there's underachieving from the top down. You start with the owner, you start with the coaches. And obviously we as players, we are a product of what the coaches are coaching us throughout the course of the week."
The way we see it
It will be interesting to see what the market is for Owens this offseason. Two years ago, after being released by the Cowboys, the Bills were the only team interested in the wideout. Then when Buffalo had enough, Cincinnati came through with a contract. It is hard to imagine a team lacking strong leadership taking a chance on Owens based on his history for criticizing teammates and coaches.
