Well, he is right about one thing.

That is a bold prediction.

I just don't see it.

We have a bunch of cap room because of our really young roster... Let's get all of OUR guys signed long term first.

Mike Brown said that he isn't really involved anymore, and, even if we did overpay a few of our guys, we'd still have a ton of work left to hit the salary floor.

We have been doing things a little differently than we used to that is for sure, signing them would be a sign that we are committed to winning NOW (I believe we have already shown that). I wont keep my fingers crossed but we shall see.


I am an advocate of signing Ahmad Bradhshaw, I feel like he fits us better!

Bradshaw would be a square peg in a round hole here.

100% correct. Plus Bradshaw can catch the ball. Although injured he had over 1000 yards last season.

He's better than BJGE too.

Don't be brainwashed into thinking all of our money is accounted for to resign our own. We have the most cap space of any team in the NFL and only 2 free agents that should cost a lot to keep. Then Atkins and Dunlap next year.

If Wallace and Bush would do 3 year deals it works great.

No, we have more cap space because we have almost no players under contract compared to other teams. Our cap room needs to be used just to fill out the roster.

I would be very happy to see that, if it still meant we could keep our own core guys too. That Woolf be a boost the offense needs to keep up with d. Opens the draft too. I would go safety, lb and after that I don't care because I would be stoked outta my mind.

Don't see us signing either one though.

Whoa there buddy, calm down.

I'd take Bush over Bradshaw in a heartbeat.

Ok, well if there was a chance of picking up Wallace and Bradshaw/Bush, who would you give up to in turn get those guys?


I think Michael Johnson, as good as he is, is somewhat expendable if we could get 2 Marquee players like that! They would provide a GREAT deal of speed to our team!!!!

I would keep Johnson. We need pass rushing too and he's one of our own. I said I would be stoked adding those guys if it meant keeping our own. In this case I would not sign bush and draft a rb, or two.

Oddly enough, this is somewhat true. I know a guy that works for the bengals, and he told me a few things. I won't tell all of them here so I dont risk his job, but one thing he has told me is that katie blackburn and troy make most of the decisions nowadays, because age is really starting to catch up with brown mentally. Dont get me wrong he hasnt lost his mind ala Al Davis before he died, but he has been slowly giving katie and troy more responsibility year after year so that when he does in fact pass away, she will be capable of running the team. Now I have been told that you cant post inside info without being able to back it up, so if the mods would like I have something that 99% of bengals fans dont know about the brown family, and would gladly PM it.

I wouldn't mind signing Reggie, but I am not sold on Mike Wallace. I do believe that we have enough cap space to sign all of our FAs and bring in Reggie.

Reggie is a dynamic back that can take over games. He has good receiving skills and has shown the ability to run between the tackles while staying healthy. He does want to be a feature and doesn't want to be a by committee type back. He has what a lot of draftees don't have and that is quality production. We could get a RB in the draft but none would be proven. Now there are some RBs in the draft that have the same, take over games, type of play to them. However they look to be found later in the draft due to injury concerns or being overshadowed.

Wallace was never impressive to me. Yes the guy is fast, however he doesn't have the most reliable hands as well as not polished in his route running. I think he is good, but not worth a huge contract, like he wants. He will probably receive offers but turn most of them down until he realizes that he won't get top dollar. Then he will either go to the team that pays the most, or gives him the best chance at winning. Though we are on an upward trajectory, we do not offer the best chance of winning a championship.

Good ol' Bengals fans....we've practically "sour graped" ourselves into believing that FA's are simply toxic to success.

Yeah read it the other day. Think both signings would be an improvement, Bush and Wallace give us the ability to run slightly more unpredictable offences, due to their speed.

We've still got a lotta money to invest in re-signing the guys who are already here though. The media keep saying about us making a splash with our money, I think we're more likely to pay our own guys and go after a few mid-range FA's.

If we make a "splash" in free agency then a vet wide receiver would be nice, but if Wallace an option then I'd rather go after Bowe. I want no part on wasting the money it would take to bring a rb like Bush in when we can grab a couple younger options in the draft. We should use that money to go after a vet SS.

We've had 22 years of bargain hunting. People are brainwashed.

I could give 2 example of a free agent success for every failure people list.

Funny thing is, if we actually did sign a Reggie Bush or a Mike Wallace, I bet all these FA haters would be just as excited as everyone else.

I don't see a lot of free agent haters. I see a lot of us as being more realistic in our views and strongly believe the draft is where you build long term. I say it all the time, I would love for us to get the right piece to the puzzle and like others believe we could have been a better team if we would have spent money on a Garcon or Reggie Wayne. But then again, we could wasted on money on a Meachem as well. The problem with free agency is it can be a crap shoot. The draft money wise (post new CBA) has become more relevant versus risking 8 to 10 million a year for 4 or 5 years on an older guy that is available because someone else did not want him.

I hope we do sign our own and go after 1 or 2 high profile guys. I just hope and pray we get the right guys signed if we do go that route. But in the end, I hope we do our homework and have a stellar draft again.

well our issues have been going after older FA. especially WR. Then when we signed Bryant he had the knee.

No doubt Bush and Wallace fit needs and would open up our draft bigtime. Wallace signing is like when we brought in Ashley Ambrose, coming off a strong first contract, and we got him in the sweet spot of his career.

No doubt Bush fits exactly the type of back we need here to compliment green, and I think we still draft a guy. Big question will be who else will be in the market for him?

As for Wallance 3-4 year deal is perfect for him.


there is a certain number we have to spend now, and I am not sure where we will be once we pencil in our own guys. So its all moot i suppose.

The key is we have to spend more now than ever. This is not 5 years ago and pre new CBA era so now the rules are far different. All I know is I would much rather be in our shoes cap wise than about a third of the NFL teams. We are young, we are building and we have cash to spend.

At a minimum, we can sign our own without heart ache. As far as bargain hunting goes, there is nothing wrong with a great bargain. dalton making $800K a year versus Palmer making $14 million year. Burfict making $400K a year versus a host of other LBers making $5 million a year.

All of these young steals give us leverage with the cap situation long term. It is a great position to be in so we need to capitilize on it.
