Former Bengals DT John Thornton says on his blog All Pro Blogger that T.J. Houshmandzadeh has made up his mind, and will sign with a “West Coast” team. That would tend to indicate Seattle…unless John is hazy on his geography and thinks Minneapolis is actually on the ocean. Of course this is hardly confirmation. And, last we heard, T.J. was still at Winter Park being given the tour. So you can believe Mr. Thornton or not.
Update: John Thornton has retracted his earlier assertion that T.J. Houshmandzadeh had signed with a west coast team, presumed to be Seattle, and now says he’s out of the breaking news business. Here’s what I learned from the experience: Just cause a guy used to be teammates with a guy, that doesn’t mean he knows what’s going on with that guy. Oh, and bloggers are full of it. But then I already knew that from reading myself.
