His former team, the Cincinnati Bengals have no room for him after the signing WR Terrell Owens and the drafting of WR Jordan Shipley to the team along with WR Chad Ochocinco.
“If our team is constituted differently this would be a great place for him to be back in” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “But at this point where we do not know it would be good for him in regard to where we are.”
Houshmandzadeh played eight seasons for the Bengals before bolting to Seattle last year.
“It’s unfortunate that TJ was released.’s going to have another chance.’s Going to take advantage of this opportunity and I’ll be happy for him,” said Lewis.
“I had people call and contact me as far as TJ and I gave him a true assessment, honest and very sincere. TJ helped us get where we are today. It is a good, young pro and did a good man a very well highlighted in this building. ”
Apparently, there is no possibility of returning to Ohio Houshmandzadeh with Browns GM Tom Heckert Sunday saying: “I think we’ll be good with the guys we have now,” despite the lack of experience in Cleveland wide receiver.
The Minnesota Vikings, who courted Houshmandzadeh in 2009 before losing to Seattle, also appear to be steering clear, despite the absence of WR Sidney Rice for at least a good part of the season.
“I would be more likely to see if we could find a younger man or someone who has been on a West Coast offense,” said Vikings coach Brad Childress, who seems more inclined to bring back the veteran Javon Walker, who was cut over the weekend.
