Re: 2013 Bengals Discussion
when is the draft? Next week? Seems time is running out for Andre to score a decent size deal. I have yet to hear any word of him visiting other teams, which tells me the money his agent is asking for is significantly more than teams are willing to dish out. It also tells me that there are few teams out there that feel like they have a glaring hole at RT that only Andre can fill moving forward. Once the draft hits, a draft that is allegedly strong with RT types, the number of teams that feel like they still need to address RT is going to diminish further.
If Andre doesn't sign by draft day, he may be looking at a 1 year, $5 mil type contract w/ a minimal signing bonus. I don't know what the Bengals have on the table, but I've got to think that offer is starting to look better and better with each passing day. If teams weren't willing to meet his alleged $9 mil/per demands at the start of free agency, I can't imagine they're going to meet them today, and they're certainly not going to be in the same neighborhood once the draft has concluded.
