Whur CHad At? Posted March 1, 2007 Report Share Posted March 1, 2007 from foxsports.comThe veteran has been a major cog on the Bengals offensive machine the past few years. Steinbach is sturdy, smart, never makes mistakes and is versatile. He can play guard, tackle and center in a pinch. That versatility is a huge key. When the inevitable injury strikes, he has the physical and mental makeup to simply shift on the offensive line.Chad Johnson has said forever that he considers Steinbach a star.Linemate Willie Anderson has echoed those sentiments.Yesterday on the radio show, T.J. Houshmandzadeh made a plea for the Bengals to re-sign Steinbach."I don't like to do business, but Eric Steinbach is a great player," Houshmandzadeh said. "I hope management has a change of heart. He can do everything for you. He helps out Rudi Johnson and the running game. The way he pulls is amazing. He is a body guard for Carson (Palmer). He is a tremendous worker. Steinbach is a great person in the locker room. I have always believed, when healthy, we have as good a line as any in the NFL. And Steinbach is a huge part of that."Teams are going to line up for a player like this.Expect teams ranging from Dallas, Cleveland, Arizona, Miami, Houston, and Jacksonville to find out how much it will cost to bring Steinbach into their respective cities.Also expect the Bengals to do everything possible to bring Steinbach back without disrupting their salary structure.
