I got a few angry emails and tweets last week after leaving Donte Whitner after the PFT top-80 free agents. The former top ten player just didn’t seem like a guy who would attract a lot of interest.
After spending a week on the market, Whitner was able to find an interested team. He agreed to a two-year contract with the Bengals, according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Whitner figures to start opposite Chris Crocker. While Whitner isn’t a huge difference maker, he can be a good tackler and he upgrades one of the Bengals’ worst positions. It’s a nice spot for Whitner to turn his career around.
