Read this on the forum over at Bengals.com. My response was as follows...
All of it seems both logical and plausible except that last one, those 3 guy are all gone before the Bengals pick IMO. Hope it's all true, that 1st one we should know the truth on soon.
Not sure who this Brian Patterson is, but he is reporting some majoe Bengal news on twitter this past hour. I'm guessing however that this guy is complete fraud and all of this is BS
@1BrianPatterson: bengals have reached tentative deals with cb adam jones, de wallace gilberry and p kevin huber. Gilberry and huber both get 3 years.”
“@bengalsinsider: bengals will speak to agents of laron landry and darnell ellerbe during 3 day "anti tampering" window.”
“@bengalsinsider: bengals have zero interest in bringing andre smith back, per sources. They have plans in place to replace him.”
@bengalsinsider: bengals will also place offer sheet on rfa rb chris ivory of saints, which they dont expect saints to match.”
“@bengalsinsider: bengals top 3 targets for 21st pick...lane johnson, jarvis jones and ezekiel ansah. They think one will drop to them.”
One of the posters over there wrote this...so take all of the above with a bigger than usual grain of salt.
Brian Patterson is the nut job that used to post here. None of what he says is true.
