If I was a Bengals fan I would not expect much from Odom, because he is average at best.
    Another Titans fan here. Back when Odom was drafted, he and Travis LaBoy were expected to be high potential players. Like James said, he hasn't produced much until this year. You can take that in two directions though; he's either figured it out and is becoming the player we thought he would or he just had a lucky year because Haynesworth dominated the line and Vanden Bosch was on the other side. I woulnd't say Odom is really good at any one thing, but I'd say he'll be an above average DE for the Bengals.

    I agree, Odom is a risk, but could be a pretty good player. I am happy with what the Titans did. Odom and LaBoy split time between each other and recieved a total of 11 million a year. The Titans replaced them with Kearse for 3 million a year. They got whay hopefully will be equal production for 8 million less.

    My hope is that he learned a thing or two playing with Vanden Bosch and Haynesworth. He doesn't need to be all world, but if he can make the Bengals D better, I'm all for it.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    Titans saved money and so did the Bengals, Odom 6 years 29mil 11 guaranteed, Justin Smith 6 years 45 mil 20 guaranteed. Smith made a lot of tackles and no pass rush, Odom not as many tackles can rush the passer better than Smith.
