The recent addition of USC defensive end Frostee Rucker and Florida State linebacker A. J. Nicholson has prompted one high-level league source to question the continued collection of players of questionable character by Bengals coach Marvin Lewis.

"What the f--- are they doing?" said the source. "Rucker and Nicholson? Give me a break. They are sabotaging the organization by picking bad players like [Odell] Thurman, [Chris] Henry, and those two."

Nicholson was suspended by the Seminoles prior to the Orange Bowl after an alleged sexual assault. Rucker had been removed from the draft boards of multiple teams for reasons, as we hear it, unrelated to his performance or skill.

The Bengals selected Thurman and Henry in 2005. Thurman was benched for the early portion of a game during his rookie season, and there were constant whispers and rumblings of repeated violations of team rules. He was actually kicked off of the Georgia team during his freshman year due to multiple disciplinary issues, including a bar fight. Henry was arrested in December for possession of marijuana, and he faces far more serious charges of felony assault in Florida after allegedly pointing a gun at a group of folks in the offseason.

Meanwhile, there continue to be concerns that Lewis is showing excessively favorable treatment to receiver Chad Johnson, who recently scored an extension to a contract that still had four years left on it -- even after reportedly sparking a locker room brouhaha during halftime of the team's playoff loss to the Steelers.

Lol knocks on odell? man theyll try anything OH and gotta love them being hypocrits

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Jonathan Joseph, CB, South Carolina.

(PFT pre-pick projection: Jimmy Williams, CB, Virginia Tech.)

We went with Williams over Joseph because we figured Marvin Lewis wouldn't be scared off by Williams' character questions. But it appears that even Marvin is now paying some mind to a guy's turd potential.

PFT loves to bust on the Bengals for "character." :lol: Sorry to tell Pitt fan Florio the truth but only Henry has been an issue. And certainly the Bengals have no more character issues than any other team. Meanwhile, they are b*tchin' about a 3rd and 5th round pick? Sheesh. Florio is really reaching here.
