ESPN's Adam Schefter is now reporting that the Cincinnati Bengals have had internal discussions about the possibility of going after Denver Broncos restricted free agent receiver Brandon Marshall.
Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Inquirer reports that the Bengals want to add another receiver opposite of Chad Johnson, narrowing their two choices to Terrell Owens and Antonio Bryant.
The Bengals already released Laveranues Coles, who was supposed to replace T.J. Houshmandzadeh last year.
Even with Cincinnati having a need a receiver, I have a hard time believing a frugal owner like Mike Brown would be willing to pony up the money needed to secure Brandon Marshall's services. The Bengals would have to give up their first rounder, and Cincinnati has used that pick every year since 1989.
