Richie Incognito drawing interest

According to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Richie Incognito, who was voted by his peers as the NFL's dirtiest player last season, will visit the Miami Dolphins.

Fined nearly six figures for various on-field incidents so far in his brief NFL career, Incognito is a former third-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts could also be interested in the controversial offensive guard.

Incognito almost joined the Dolphins in December, but Miami lost out on their waiver claim to the Buffalo Bills, who were lower in the standings.

T.O. pays visit to Cincinnati

All the clamoring from Chad Ochocinco has apparently paid off, as Terrell Owens has officially landed at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports .

Meanwhile, Antonio Bryant has reportedly left town and will possibly visit more teams, but is still considered the best option for a Bengals contract, the story notes.

Owens told the Enquirer he is optimistic about the prospect of putting on a Bengals uniform this season.

"There's always been the speculation and perception out there [about coming to Cincinnati] and Chad kick started it and lobbied to have me here as a teammate and I welcome it with open arms."

Bengals interested in Georgia RB Moreno

With the NFL draft 19 days away, the Cincinnati Bengals are beginning to narrow down their choices of potential prospects as possible draft day selections.

According to the Dayton Daily News, University of Georgia redshirt sophomore sensation Knowshon Moreno is a player long believed to be high on the team's list.

The Bengals own the sixth overall pick in the draft and wouldn't be opposed to trading down to stockpile draft picks. But, the team could consider using their first round selection on Moreno in either scenario.

The Denver Broncos own the No. 12 and 18 overall picks and are said to be very high on Moreno. He has already visited Denver.

Although Moreno's speed has come under scrutiny lately, Georgia Bulldogs running backs coach, Tony Ball, is a firm believer in the player's ability.

O'Sullivan could sign as backup QB

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals are close to an agreement to sign J.T. O'Sullivan as a backup quarterback.

O'Sullivan started eight games for San Francisco last year; this would mark his seventh team in seven seasons.

If O'Sullivan falls through, Rex Grossman will visit today and J.P. Losman might follow.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh free agency tour

According to the Seattle Times, the Seahawks put T.J. Houshmandzadeh's name up in lights during a tour of Qwest Field on Friday.

That was just a part of their campaign to get Houshmandzadeh's name on a free-agent contract.

Houshmandzadeh is also interested in Minnesota, the New York Giants and Philadelphia.

Life after Bengals?

T.J. Houshmandzadeh could be one of the top players on the market, when free agency begins.

Houshmandzadeh tied for the league lead in receptions last season with 112 catches. He also led the Bengals with 92 receptions for 904 yards and four touchdowns. In 2007, he tied for the league lead in receptions with 112 and also had 1,143 yards and 12 TDs.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, it has been frustrating for Houshmandzadeh. Since winning the AFC North in 2005 and a 3-0 start in 2006, the Bengals have gone 16-28-1, including last season's 4-11-1 campaign. Even a winning second half, where the Bengals went 4-3-1, wasn't enough to ease the frustration.

Whether or not Houshmandzadeh is available won't be known for another two weeks. He is an unrestricted free agent, but the Bengals could still use the franchise tag on him. The period for teams to designate franchise players began Thursday and will continue until 4 p.m. on Feb. 19.
