TAMPA – Former Bucs receiver Antonio Bryant has found a couple of suitors for his services.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Washignton Redskins have reached out to the 28-year-old wideout, who is expected to visit Cincinnati today, according to his agent.

The Bengals are believed to see Bryant as a second receiver behind Chad Ochocinco, but with the Bengals holding an option for 2011 on Ochocinco, Bryant could eventually move up to the No. 1 spot.

Though he did not name them, Bryant’s agent said two other teams have expressed an interest in Bryant, who may see either Washington or one of the other teams as a better option for him than Cincinnati.

Bryant is coming off a season hampered by knee injuries in which he caught 39 passes for the Bucs, who decided to move on and look for someone who can grow with quarterback Josh Freeman.
