Terrell Owens -- I'd Cut My Salary in Half for Cincy

7/27/2010 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Still unemployed wide receiver Terrell Owens told us just how far he'd cut his salary to play for the Cincinnati Bengals - saying he'd play for "half" of what he made last year with the Buffalo Bills.



We spoke to T.O. yesterday in L.A. - and he told us he definitely wants to play for a contender (and alongside his buddy Chad Ochocinco) -- but the money's got to be right too.  Owens made $6.5 million last year in Buffalo.

As TMZ first reported on Friday - T.O. remains very close to a deal with the Bengals, and if the two sides can agree on money he could be in Cincy for the start of training camp on Thursday.

Does washed up Terrell Owens really think he can make or break a team. His better days are about 3 years behind him. He's a has-been and Cincy sucks pig butt. They'll finish 6-10 this year.

I feel that Terrell Owens is doing what he can to keep his career afloat, and anyone who has watched his reality show can clearly see that he is a genuine person. The Bengals should be honored to have a black man of his talent on their team as he shows a side of himself in the media that a lot of black men have, which is sensitivity, but is never exposed for the public eye. Instead of the angry, untrusting black man exposure we often see. Besides he's very handsome,lol.

For all u genuine haters out there..."don't hate, participate,oops,oh,so u are one of those athlete haters,huh? Well, try investing more of your time into something you have control over-like your own life." Terrell is going to be a success at what he's doing regardless as to whether he makes 2mil, and besides-life is more fulfilling to an individual who doesn't hold animosity, just keep it moving...but in a more positive direction.Terrel is not going to stop doing what he does best, so lets just keep it moving...
