When asked about his chances of returning to the team and signing a new deal, Houshmandzadeh gave it less than a 10 percent chance. The Bengals had contacted his agent, Kennard McGuire, but there wasn’t any contract talk.
Houshmandzadeh also said that he hoped to have a deal done within the first 48 hours of free agency starting.
In other Bengals' WR news... TJ also thinks Chad Ocho Cinco could be on his way out.
“He doesn’t want to be there and if he doesn’t want to be there, let him go,” Houshmandzadeh said.
If the Bengals lose Housh and Ocho Cinco in the same offseason, the next guy wanting out might very well be Carson Palmer.
