DDOGG Posted March 14, 2008 Report Share Posted March 14, 2008 The Bengals have some things on their plate as the week nears an end with what are believed to be offers on the table to a couple of pass catchers. One of their own in wide receiver Tab Perry and one in Colts tight end Ben Utecht. And with old friend Takeo Spikes beginning to make some visits, they may decide whether or not to inquire abut their former No. 1 pick. The Bengals have been talking to the agents for Perry and Utecht virtually since free agency began two weeks ago. Perry and Utecht have also been talking to other teams, with Miami and Green Bay looking to be the most interested in Perry and the Jets courting Utecht. Spikes' visit to San Francisco on Thursday comes as the Bengals mull a linebacker corps that has precious few NFL starts. His two strikes are his age of 31 and his release from the Eagles after reports said he failed a physical. His selling points are his experience and passion. The Bengals wouldn't be ready to drop a big deal on him and their priority right now seems to be trying to get something done with Utecht. Since he's a restricted free agent, the Colts have the right to match within a week he signs an offer sheet. Chris Murray, Utecht's agent, said as of Thursday night no deal had been finalized.
