chrishcovga Posted February 24, 2004 Report Share Posted February 24, 2004 OK, since 12/28/03 we Bengal fans have been in an uproar that Corey Dillon has got to go since his tirade leaving the field after the Browns loss.His comments have seemingly drived a wedge between him and his teammates ,and his fans.A funny thing happened though... Rudi turned out to be pretty good... and also a free agent when we have the least amount of cap space to keep him if another team offers the big bucks.One thing that everyone has said would work out for the Bengals the best would be to let Rudi go for that 1st,and 3rd and retain Dillon.. On the other hand.. The other half of you say . trade Dillon,sign Rudi for a one year offer (to see if he could handle the load Dillon did for 8 years) and draft another running back.It looks to me like all of these Dillon-haters still admit that he's our best option at running back and would rather have him toting the rock 22 times a game than to hand over the duties to Rudi and his one year rise to fame..?Marvin Lewis stated recently that he thinks he could get Dillon's teammated to welcome him back ...So Here's the Question: Do we keep Dillon and let Rudi go (when that offer comes) or Do we Sign Rudi to a longterm deal that would keep him out of Free Agency and let Dillon go along his marry ways..? Before you answer this question .. consider this years Salary Cap.. Next year's running back crop in the '05 draft..i.e..( Cadillac williams and Cedric Benson )... and whether or not you think Marvin Lewis could convince Dillon and his teammates to let bygones be bygones..?
