According to our friends at ProFootballTalk.com -- which broke the story -- Owens signed a one year deal and will earn a base salary of $2 million ... with an opportunity to make an extra $2 mil if he hits certain performance-based incentives.

We told you on Friday that the two sides were "very close" to a deal -- and after hammering out the particulars ... T.O. will finally be united with his pal and fellow wide receiver Chad Ochocinco.

Congrats to T.O. he made the right 'decision' and didn't even have to have an hour special, unlike LeBron, to say where he wanted to play! LOL! Ocho & T.O. together is going to be the BEST! As Ocho says: Batman & Robin! May the Bengals go to the Superbowl! Now Ohio has 2 Superstars! ...who needs LeBron now?

This has the possibility of being a good signing, only if TO realizes that he's lost a step or two and decides to play football to his strengths and not work at disrupting the teams chemistry!

I never liked TO until I saw his reality show. Though he has his issues, he truly seems like a nice person, but misunderstood. When I saw the one episode where he went to see his Dad, and it was explained that the father he never knew lived 2 doors down from his home....well, it really broke my heart. And, the love he showed for his Grandma...it just melted my heart. Congrats TO...and I'm now a Bengals fan. :-)
