    That's a great move. As long as he can stay on the field, he's a beast.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    I saw it posted on another forum, but haven't seen it comfirmed yet.

    If its true then it will really help out the defensive line.
    Put Geathers next to him and we will likely see Geathers sacks increase.

    Bengals.com is saying its for a 3rd and 5th round pick.

    A NFL source confirmed Friday the Bengals have swung one of their biggest deal in history by acquiring Lions defensive tackle Shaun Rogers for a third- and fifth-round pick.

    Sweet! We didn't give up too much for him either.

    I can deal with it considering the bad luck bengals have had with picks over the last few years.

    Bengals will entertain a prized free agent Sunday in Tennessee Titans defensive end Antwan Odom.


    Odom, a four-year veteran from Alabama, is a 274-pound defensive end who had a career-high eight sacks last season for the Titans. He is an unrestricted free agent. The visit with the Bengals will be his first.

    I checked out a couple Lions forums and it looked like lions fans didn't think they got a good return for Rogers.


    Also the Bengals should have a 3rd round comp pick this season for Steinbach leaving.

    Former Chargers safety Marlon McCree, released Thursday after two seasons with the team, will visit Carolina, Miami and the Bengals, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune Chargers blog.

    The Bengals chose to let former starting free safety Madieu Williams to sign a six-year contract Friday with the Vikings.

    The Bengals were interested in McCree, a former University of Kentucky star, following his 2005 season with the Carolina Panthers. He signed with the Chargers instead.

    Justin Smith signs with the Niners:

    The San Franciso 49ers and defensive end Justin Smith agreed to a six-year, $45 million contract that included $20 million in guarantees.

    Smith, who had played all of his seven previous seasons in the NFL in Cincinnati, was given the franchise tag by the Bengals in 2007.

    Smith was the fourth overall pick in the 2001 draft out of Missouri. He has 43 career sacks but managed only two last season. Smith has played in 16 games every season except his rookie campaign when he made 15 appearances.

    Obviously everybody knows by now that the Rogers deal didn't happen....he's now a Brown.

    Those crap stains had a very impressive first day....

    Glad it's the Niners giving Smith that kind of contract and not the Bengals.

    He's a nice player and all, but very replaceable, IMO.

    Definitely not a franchise-level player.
