2016 Bengals Free Agents

Recommended Posts

Eric Winston signed for a million bucks?  That dude spends that much on HGH in a year, he's losing money as an NFL player.

I think they would have survived but good to have him back. Even if he was a grade A dumbass in the playoffs. Haven't seen numbers yet but Hobs suggested it was sizeable given his age.

FWIW Hobs says the Bengals matched the Lions offer for Marvin but he wanted to go somewhere that he would have more opportunity. C'est la vie, I suppose.

Iloka and Adam Jones both re-signed.  That's success.  Losing Reggie almost for sure now.  

Help wanted - NFL receiver, better have a huge catch radius.

I heard Alex Mack signed with the Falcons for less money than the Browns were offering.  Another kick in the balls for fans in the Mistake.

I could see Reggie back if he doesn't find much interest in FA. Same for just about any of their remaining guys, with the possible exception of Vinny.

FWIW Hobs says they are focused on Vinny today. If/when that happens I'd guess they are done in FA aside from vet minimum type deals.

Per the twitters, Nelson is getting a look from DC while Moobs is talking with Minny.

Vinny deal done, per Rapoport. Owczarski at the Enquirer says it's 3 years, $11-12 million. Seems a bit pricey to me but that's how FA goes.

Now if we can just find a way to bring Sanu back, I will be comfortable with what we have done in FA and its on to the draft.

The longer it goes the more likely he comes back.  Remember a week ago people were saying Adam Jones and Iloka were good as gone.

I'm of two minds about Sanu. OTOH when injuries took out Eifert and Jones in 2014 he had a chance to step up to No. 2 and couldn't do it. He couldn't get separation and couldn't get open against top-tier defenders. So if he's just a slot guy that's not too hard to replace.

OTOH if Green and Eifert are healthy they will draw the coverage and that should put him up against less capable coverage. And he does know the system and Dalton. But is that worth the reported $7 million a year? That's hard to justify.

I can't believe anyone would pay $7 mil a year for Sanu and if they do, good luck....I am betting that number is an attempt by his agent to set a negotiating point.

Honestly, the Falcons are fricking crazy.  I love Mo Sanu, but he's just a guy who is sort of jack of all trades, master of none.  Run him on a gadget play, he can break a corner's tackle.  Scheme him into single coverage with a linebacker and he may or may not get open.  Depends on the linebacker.  Good for him to get this kind of payday, I bet when he got drafted he never in his wildest dreams thought he'd pull down this much cash.
