  1. To me, this is the Bengals' biggest signing since Antwan Odom in '08. However, it's interesting because I can't believe getting a linebacker was near the top their priorities list. It almost seems like they employed their "best player available" draft strategy in free agency. It doesn't come close to offsetting the damage done to the O-line, but it's a really strong signing.

  2. http://www.cincyjungle.com/2017/3/18/14969342/bengals-signing-kevin-minter-per-espn I'd be SHOCKED if the Bengals take a LB with the 9th pick. If they trade down, though... Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  3. Per Josina Anderson, the Bengals have a deal in place with LB Kevin Minter Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com

  6. I'm not saying that guards have no value. However, if you were building an offense from the ground up and had the opportunity to choose one Pro Bowl-caliber player for any position group, where would Guard be on that list. For me, probably just above Tight End at the bottom of the list. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  7. I know I'm in the minority, but I'm not ready to throw in the towel. We lost two guys of an offensive line that was pretty bad. As a unit, the five guys that line up on Sundays have to play better than the five that were there last year. That's not a terribly high bar. At the risk of sounding all "sour grapes", Andrew Whitworth is not the same guy he was three or four years ago. That doesn't mean he's easily replaced, but it's still possible. As for Kevin Zeitler, in a vacuum, he has performed well. You're still, though, talking about the position (guard) that is arguably the least important on then team. I'm interested to see what the Bengals have up their sleeve. Surely they intended to re-sign Whitworth, Zeitler, and Kirkpatrick. The timing of the LaFell deal might indicate that they did NOT know for certain there'd b space to re-sign him. If you figure they wanted Whit and Zeitler back at around $10mil/yr, subtracting LaFell's $5mil would leave them about $15mil to repair the holes. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  8. I stand corrected. The first report I saw said $21mil guaranteed. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  9. It doesn't. Don't get me wrong. Losing Zeitler sucks. It's a shame Whitworth is gone, but the Rams' offer is the type of contract that could easily blow up in their faces. I'm not trying to justify any of this. I'm simply stating that Geoff Hobson sucks at math - and has for a very long time. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  10. Every year, Geoff prints some BS like this, and every year the Bengals spend right up to the cap. They'll do another $10-12 million in free agents. The dust will settle in a few days, and they'll pick off a couple guys like D.J. Fluker. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  11. Well since he's a restricted free agent next year, I'm going to respectfully disagree. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com

  13. Don't worry. Paul Alexander can coach him up. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  14. Interesting thought. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
  15. Nope, but I guarantee you it wasn't a three year deal. Sent from my iPhone using Go-Bengals.com
