BENGALS NOT BUDGING

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports what we’ve been hearing for weeks — the Cincinnati Bengals will not trade receiver Chad Johnson.
“No matter the offer,” Schefter says. “No matter the circumstances. No deal.”
Last week, Johnson said that he wants to be traded before the draft. Or after it.
He won’t be. Before, during, or after.
The Bengals are proving a point here. Operating under a CBA that no longer permits them to use or enforce the “loyalty clause,” Johnson’s gross display of disloyalty means that the team will stick it to him whenever and wherever it can.
Basically, Ocho Stinko is caught in Quicko Sando. The more he tries to get out of it, the deeper he sinks.
