Don’t forget rookie deals

Posted by hobsonschoice1 on July 27, 2010 – 11:25 am

No matter what happens with Terrell Owens, the Bengals are probably going to announce at least one rookie signing Tuesday and maybe another one with the report date 26 hours away.

They are apparently close to getting fourth-rounder Roddrick Muckelroy into the fold officially and the hope is that third-rounder Jordan Shipley isn’t far behind. That would leave the top two picks, tight end Jermaine Gresham and defensive end Carlos Dunlap, unsigned as the players begin to move into Georgetown College.

As for Owens, it sounds like if the Bengals can’t get him on the field by Thursday’s first practice at 9 a.m. they’ll move on, but you’d have to say the situation is fluid with ESPN reporting the Jets are interested in Owens.
