I hate to be one to perpetuate rumors when they are merely that, especially if they have negative connotations for another person, but I thought given light of recent events I would share this with the Bengal fans on this board...

There are wide rumors circulating amongst Bengal insiders that Odell Thurman is addicted to meth, (some say its crank), and has lost 50 lbs this offseason alone. He has recently checked into a rehab facilitiy, and the Bengals are prepared to be without him for the rest of this season, and maybe for the rest of his career. I hope these prove to be unsubstantiated rumors, but given his recent suspension, and the shadiness of the situation surrounding it (including his missing minicamp for "personal reasons"), I am preparing for the worst.

Hopefully its not true, but if it is would shed a LOT more light on the recent drafting of Ahmad Brooks despite the presence of Landon Johnson, Caleb Miller, et al.
