Antonio Bryant Headed to Cincinnati?

Hopefully they take TO and we can still get Bryant cheap.

Bryant is the only FA WR that would actually UPGRADE our WR corps. All the other FA WRs will be no more than role players like Moose, but without the blocking skills.

Front office offseason "to-do" list:

-Cut aging players--check

-Steer clear of any quality players in FA, save some "role players" (scrubs in the average fans vernacular)--check

-Completely *** up any chance of a successful 2010--check

waaaahhhh

Bryant's agent, Lamont Smith, said Bryant had also arranged a visit with the Washington Redskins that could prove more enticing as Bryant would apparently be a second receiver behind Chad Ochocinco in Cincinnati.

There's still rumblings the Panthers are still interested in him according to Insider. Again, we all know Insider could be full of it.

Former Bucs receiver Antonio Bryant is in Cincinnati visiting with the Bengals. This much we know. What's not so certain is what his next stop is.

Bryant's agent is denying reports he identified the Redskins as Bryant's next visit, though he admits his client does have another couple of visits lined up. The agent, Lamont Smith, wouldn't identify the teams.

Bryant would seem to be a good fit with the Bengals, who are looking for someone to pair with Chad Ochocinco. The latest word out of Cincinnati is that Terrell Owens, another free agent receiver who was scheduled to visit today, is not coming in until tomorrow.

Could that mean Bryant is closing in on a deal? Perhaps. Stay tuned.

Just heard on Sirius Radio that he left Cinncinnati without a contract....and that TO was going there tomorrow.

At least he is still on the market.

OH GOD WE CUT OUR FULLBACK AND WASHED UP QUARTERBACK. NOOO. 2010 IS HOPELESS!

Antonio Bryant would be a good 1 year signing, though. Nothing more than that since he's a lazy 'only-produce-in-contract-years' player.

...and let go of our key role palyers only to put in unproven "talent"!!! Whoo hoo, I love learning curves!!!

Rebuilding makes so much sense when one or two player additions would have solidified the team. The next time I go in for an oil change for my car, I'll inform them that they'll need to tear out the enigne and rebuild it becasue it may improve my car's performance....though it's running just fine now.

Problem with your analogy is that it WAS NOT running fine.

We were starting to hear knocks and pings all over the place.

Understand that NFL players get old very quickly. Today's stud is tomorrow's old news....seee Shaun Alexander and LT for examples of that.

Kemo and Lewis were servicable...no more. Our DT position has not been strong for years. Leonard, Tyler, and Irvin are as good....and I believe will out perform next year.

Diggs was easily replaceable with Anderson and Conner. Anderson has been with us for 4 seasons and has performed well the last two.

Brayton needs to be re-signed...or they need to re-sign a similar solid vet to help out with depth and mentor our two young guys.

Jake...enough said.

Hoover...we were carrying 3 FB's. That is hard to do with the roster limits. Sutton and Fiametta are big and young. This one may be the one that I see a slight fall-off.

Vincent...he was the weak link last season. Mackey and Schwartz played great in their games.

We are taking a risk, but the long term upside more than outweighs the risk.

I think we will be better than last season based on QB play alone.

Man Na'il Diggs sure was amazing. so was that Landon Johnson fellow. They were the heart and soul of our linebacker core. There can be no one, draft or other wise, to replace them.

Lewis and Kemoeatu were gods compared to everyone the left on the Dline. The reason we lost most of those games was because of the absence of Kemo.

We are f**cked.

The only players that were cut that can affect us are Peppers and Hoover. Get over it.
