If the Bears are in play for free-agent wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, it's news to his agent.
Contacted Friday afternoon, Chicago-based agent Kennard McGuire said he wasn't aware of any interest the Bears may have in his client. It was reported in the Cincinnati Enquirer in Thursday that the Bears were one of three leading candidates to land the top wide receiver on the market. Not so.
"Not that I know of,'' McGuire said when asked if the Bears were in play for Houshmandzadeh.
FoxSports.com reported that Houshmandzadeh will visit the Seattle Seahawks.
Houshmandzadeh said on ESPN Thursday night that he also had interest in Minnesota, the New York Giants and Philadelphia.
