  1. Congrats BUNGALS!!!
    maybe now you can find a 36 year old broken down replacement and save a lot more millions.

  2. Ughhh! This is so typical of the Bengals. Yet again, they have a very good, young player and let him walk away in Free Agency. I’m so tired of watching ex-Bengals excel on other teams, while the Bengals themselves continue to stink. They behave more like a farm system for the rest of the NFL than a team that actually intends to compete and win.

  3. Someone may want to wake Mike Brown up. You just lost your best pass rusher on a team with no pass rushers. Bengals will Bungle I guess.

  4. Carl almost gets there. A lot. Good luck in NY, man. Seems like the Bengals just want different players. We’ll see if they keep WJIII.

  5. Hate to see him go, but careers are short and you need to get paid when you have the opportunity.

  6. Very good signing. A under the radar player. He will have good production under Saleh. With Williams playing much better too the line is quietly being built right. They need to sign someone else though or draft.

  7. Hilarious. Could of got a 3rd round pass rusher for that production at a fraction of the price.
