    I know this sounds nuts, but would you resign Thornton and put him at DE for a super discount contract???

    Thornton as a backup would be fine with me.

    Anyone think Ryan Fitzgerald gets resigned? Will be interesting to see what they do with their backup QB position.

    I really hope they can get Chris Crocker resigned, he seemed like a good fit. And Shayne Graham too. He might be pricey for a kicker, but the last thing I want to see is the Benagls waste time starting over with the kicking game.

    Daugherty said that the Bengals are about 28 Million under the cap right now.

    This is different than in earlier years where they never had cap room, the only remaining big contracts are Palmer, Johnson, Odom, Geathers, Levi Jones, and recent first round draft choices. IIRC, only Palmer, Johnson, and Odom have large cap numbers.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I actually think the Bengals will sign some free agents this year to fill holes. I wouldn't expect anything earth shattering, but Kevin Hardy / Tory James types circa 2003, sure.

    Thornton being a backup is fine with me as well. I just hope the Bengals sign some more guys so he never has to start.

    I hope Crocker comes back as well. With him, Ndukwe, and White the Bengals have some decent safeties.

    Graham is as good as gone. He's going to Florida.

    I think beyond TJ and Graham Brandon Johnson is an semi-important re-sign, he had a really good season. Crocker and Benson played well but I'd be careful with what you commit to them. It sounds like they are talking to Andrews people afterall which is a bit surprising.

    I wonder how much more cap room the Bengals could free up by cutting Chris Perry and a couple others. Does anyone happen to know a site where I could find information like that?

    Sorry, I want John Thornton far, far away from the Bungles.

    I used this last season some it's pretty sweet, however it appears the guy running the page hasn't updated it for quite some time. But it does have a virtual GM feature on it. Maybe if you emailed the guy running the site he could help. FWIW though I believe Perry's contract runs through '09 and at a base salary of 1 million, so it probably ain't gonna hurt us none to cut him and might save a few hundred thousand. It's a no brainer obviously.

    They should forget Andrews...that guy does not want to be here and plays like it.

    They should go get a Center with good credentials....a leader who will not be pushed around. A good backup QB who actually can pass the ball downfield.

    Depth on the OL.......and WR's can be had for a good price and give you a 1,000 yard season...productive seasons without breaking the cap.

    Drafting more WR's who cannot come in and play now...and even Chad and Pickens took about a year or 2....to do anything....will not help at all.

    My first round wish list:
    OT-Michael Oher
    OT-Andre Smith
    DT-BJ Raji
    DE-Brian Orapko

    Second round:
    A center.

    Actually, I think they've had cap room in the past. It's just that they tend to do something unwise with the cap room, like tear up Chad Johnson's contract and give him an extension with another big signing bonus. Mike Brown operates under a "let's take care of our own" mentality that invariably results in using up excess cap space in writing new contracts for players already on the team rather than going out and signing free agents who would help fill some holes.

    Graham, TJ, Benson, and Andrews are the only real candidates to be brought back. Graham will make Top 5-10 money at his position, TJ will take top 5 money, Benson will veteran compensation at his position which is a couple million, who knows on Andrews, plus draft pick pay. The potential for them to use up much of the money on their own is there. I just don't see it happening.

    They don't necessarily need to be players whose contracts are up for MB to resign them. He redid CJ's contract a few times well before it was time.

    Teams are beginning to lop off heads heading into free agency, dont be surprised if the Bengals dont cut Levi or some other dead weight.
