I think you can criticize Brown for be cheap in free agency but I don't understand the desire to pay a right tackle, left tackle money after one good year.
Contrary to the opinions in this thread, I don't think right tackle is the position that will decide the season. If he wants too much money, I don't mind the Bengals letting him walk and using that money on green, Atkins, and Dalton. Looking at the money for flacco, all three of them are going to be looking for huge deals.
