dcameron Posted March 17, 2004 Report Share Posted March 17, 2004 Some interesting points from the new bengals.com update: - “I’ve got a smile from ear-to-ear,” said Webster, the Bengals middle linebacker, of the news his new team is pursuing his old teammate. “I’m not sure of the situation. Warren is sacred about that kind of stuff. He’s like a coach on the field and I don’t care how old he is. He’s still the best defensive tackle in football. Watching him is like watching a basketball game the way he leaves those guys hanging with his moves.” - “When I’m watching a game, the only two tackles I watch are him and La’Roi Glover,” Thornton said. “You really learn something from watching a guy like that. I think everybody pretty much patterned their game after him the way he rushes the passer. He’ll help any team he goes to because he brings so much attention to himself on and off the field. There was a little shock value to it because it was such a big name, but you also know Coach (Marvin Lewis) is trying to get those impact players.” - The only thing the Bengals did on the record Wednesday was pull the $628,0000 restricted free agent tag off linebacker Riall Johnson, making him an unrestricted free agent and giving the club more salary-cap room to sign Sapp or Eagles cornerback Bobby Taylor.Thought it was interesting what Webster and Thornton had to say... maybe Webster will be making a call to his "boy" to try to pursued him. And i would expect more "cuts" similar to the one of Riall Johnson... so they can open up as much cap room as they can. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
