Antonio Bryant Headed to Cincinnati?

There are bigger names out there, but the first wide receiver to meet with the Bengals this offseason will be Antonio Bryant.

Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports Bryant will visit Cincincinnati on Tuesday. Bryant has been connected to the Bengals less than Terrell Owens and Brandon Marshall, but he makes a lot more sense.

At 29, Bryant is still in his prime. Unlike Owens, Bryant has deep speed to complement Cincinnati's short passing attack. Unlike Marshall, Bryant doesn't cost any trade compensation to acquire. And Bryant fits that whole "second chance" vibe Mike Brown loves so much.

The Bengals hold all the cards here. Bryant's market has been slow to develop and Cincinnati has other options if Bryant seeks too much money.

looks like we have to face this guy again next year (assuming he signs---he will)

This is a marriage that makes a lot of sense for both sides.

I'm sure Smith won't mind being the only talent at WR again.

Any trash heap guys under 27 who'll play on a one year contract out there?

I know I'm not supposed to quote ESPNInsider so take it FWIW. They said supposedly the Panther's would like to have him but he would have to take a price cut. I know Insider isn't exactly the best source but just thought I'd let you guys know. He's visiting the Bengals but don't be shocked if he visits here too.

We already have the WRs that will be on this squad. We'll add more in the Draft.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
