There are bigger names out there, but the first wide receiver to meet with the Bengals this offseason will be Antonio Bryant.

Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports Bryant will visit Cincincinnati on Tuesday. Bryant has been connected to the Bengals less than Terrell Owens and Brandon Marshall, but he makes a lot more sense.

At 29, Bryant is still in his prime. Unlike Owens, Bryant has deep speed to complement Cincinnati's short passing attack. Unlike Marshall, Bryant doesn't cost any trade compensation to acquire. And Bryant fits that whole "second chance" vibe Mike Brown loves so much.

The Bengals hold all the cards here. Bryant's market has been slow to develop and Cincinnati has other options if Bryant seeks too much money.

looks like we have to face this guy again next year (assuming he signs---he will)

This is a marriage that makes a lot of sense for both sides.

I'm sure Smith won't mind being the only talent at WR again.

Any trash heap guys under 27 who'll play on a one year contract out there?

I know I'm not supposed to quote ESPNInsider so take it FWIW. They said supposedly the Panther's would like to have him but he would have to take a price cut. I know Insider isn't exactly the best source but just thought I'd let you guys know. He's visiting the Bengals but don't be shocked if he visits here too.

We already have the WRs that will be on this squad. We'll add more in the Draft.

Bryant is the only FA WR that would actually UPGRADE our WR corps. All the other FA WRs will be no more than role players like Moose, but without the blocking skills.

Front office offseason "to-do" list:

-Cut aging players--check

-Steer clear of any quality players in FA, save some "role players" (scrubs in the average fans vernacular)--check

-Completely *** up any chance of a successful 2010--check
