Re: 2013 Bengals Discussion
They can franchise Andre Smith at $9.6 Million. But they have plenty of space left in this current league year to get a deal done with him and Michael Johnson. The cap number for a DE and lets face it, Michael Johnson isn't a top 10 overall defensive end, is $10.98 Million. My guess is they get something done with both of them before they have to file for free agency.
I am unclear about the carryover rules, but I suspect that gives them the space to sign Geno Atkins to a nice extension.
Whenever you get mad over a called strike or ball on a close pitch, it's the equivalent of being mad at the QB pump-faking one time before throwing a pass in your average NFL game. ---Caveat Emperor
