Bengals cut Frazier, Sign Dhani Jones

Recommended Posts

Or Nicholson.

I'm not sure about this one... already thin at linebacker, and he contributed on special teams too (even if they've been anything but special thus far).

If by contribute you mean he gave a half ass effort and watched guys run up and down the field, then yeah he contributed.

Something has to be up - they are one under the roster limit. Surely of all the teams out there, the Bengals' are the last one who can afford to be short even one player.

Bringing back Hartwell? A trade? Nothing?

BTW - and I'm sure this won't happen - but if they could trade Levi and his salary for a solid LB, to someone outside of the division - I make that move.

Pure conjecture here! I know Levi's in Marv's dog house and that's the only reason I mentioned it.

Of course i'd rather have a healthy Levi over Whitworth - what I'd like them to lose is some of that cap $ for the off season, if they're just going to keep playing Whitworth and let $40 million man sit on the bench, and "earn his job back." Great investment there BTW.

How about trade Levi to the Dolphins for Channing Crowder? I live in South Florida and see a lot Dolphins games and their oline is awful and he would help the Dolphins a lot. Crowder is a solid player for their D.

How about starting Levi and saving Carson's backside and then fixing the defense some other way? I'm tired of hearing the ref repeatedly announcing false start on #77 and seeing Carson getting pressured to throw the ball early.

But wouldn't we lose money for cutting levi because of his new deal?

Just to completely put a downer on peoples already frayed nerves, could this move say more about Brooks.

Whoever they bring in is going to have very little time to prepare. Hobson was spouting some s**te about WR's being thin but I don't buy hurting an already pressurized ST's unit and a valuable backup option (before I get grief over that, I'm looking at the bigger picture not just last Sunday) for aWR, especially when we have plenty but they're all hurt. Why a LB.

I for one am just glad Marvin is making some kind of move. While I liked what frazier brought in special teams in the past, maybe this move will scare the poop out of the others on Special teams and defense to make them wake up and hit someone.

Frazier did nothing to impress me, or the coaches it now appears. Considering how thin they are at LB this move is a bit of a surprise and must indicate they have something cooking.

Coincidentally, King Goodell lifted suspensions today on 5 players including AJ Nicholson...so maybe they will give him another chance...surely he could not make the D or ST any worse.

There are no impact guys out there for us to snag. A Levi trade is too stupid to merit discussion, stupid.

If he really wanted to scare the poop out of them he would have cut a player like Caleb Miller and not a mraginal player that barely made the team in the first place

from Mark Curnutte

The Bengals this afternoon announced they have waived linebacker Andre Frazier. He played in the first two games and had two total tackles on special teams.

No replacement has been announced for Frazier's spot on the 53-man roster.

The Bengals had a visit this week from former Giants and Eagles linebacker Dhani Jones.

Especially since it would mean an $8 million cap hit and the bengals only have about $2-3 million in cap space.

As for Frazier, my initial reaction was...ehhh. I share TDB's qualms about shedding yet another special teamer, but the bottom line is no one on STs ought to be safe the way they've played so far.

They almost have to be bringing in another LB, and I would think on the strong side. Beyond that tho, who knows.

Im not an eagles fan ive been a bengals fan since Mr. Anderson but if i had a faviorite team in the NFC it would be the eagles and yes my brother is not happy right now. He watches bengals games with me and i watch eagles games with him since we are die hard football fans, but trust me u do not want Jones he is worse then what we have hear not to metion if he does a good play we have to see that stupid air guitar thing he does.

When I said "Eagles Fan" I meant your bro. It's obvious you stand with us as a Bengals fan.
