    Well, yes. He's showing a pattern of poor judgment. Though to be totally honest my biggest concern isn't him acting stupid, it's the fact that he's not that good of a receiver. To me this signing isn't much more than a scratch off ticket.

    Matt Jones - don't mind taking a flyer on him. If it doesn't work out, you can let him go. As far as his record goes, drugs and alcohol are problems that can be overcome. Lots of good people become addicted to drugs and alcohol and have gone on to become better people after beating their addictions. I see him as strictly a role player though.

    Pacman Jones I want no part of. That guys troubles seem to arise from stupidity and a general lack of good character. I'd rather not have him in the locker room with some of the younger players on the team. That seems like a recipe for off-the-field trouble.

    Everyone says Matt Jones is "no risk". What happens if he makes the team as the #3 receiver, then gets picked up for drugs around week 5? How did this team react after losing the #3 receiver this season? Players with a pattern of making bad choices are certainly a risk.

    If Matt Jones makes the team, he is no better than a #4 receiver. You can't depend on him and it would be foolish for the Bengals to assume they can.
    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.

    Agree. I wouldn't let PacMan Jones around anyone.

    You mean like how you can depend on Andre Caldwell, Jerome Simpson, Leverneaus Coles and Chase Coffman?

    I don't see him as anything more than a role player brought in on passing downs and possibly an option at QB if the Bengals decide to jump on the Wildcat bandwagon.

    No, you can't depend on him until he proves you can.

    Caldwell is role player
    Simpson is a bust, doesn't know the playbook, and has been thrown out of practice by Carson Palmer on more than one occasion.
    Coles is old and ricketty
    Coffman ???

    Personally, I'd love to see the Bengals go after and sign on March 5th Jason Avant. Avant can play all three WR's spots that Chad doesn't play, and, though this may be a detriment on him becoming a Bengal, he's as good a person as you'll find. Avant right now is better than every receiver on the Bengals not named Chad. Avant is one of the Top 24 Wide Receivers in the NFL. He's on a team loaded with depth, though. He's an unrestricted Free Agent, so the Eagles can't match, even if there's no CBA. He caught 71% of the passes thrown to him last year.

    I like it. The Bengals certainly need a possesion guy for defenses to worry about so chad or Caldwell, hell even Coles can stretch the field.
    Witty signature.

    At least now the only time we have to worry about Stallworth is when we play the Ravens twice a year. Signed with Baltimore today per ESPN.

    But I would rather have him than Matt Jones, if they had to pick up a "character cast-off". At least Stallworth had flashes of good play.

    In NE with Welker and Moss beside him. He was nothing special before that or after that in Cleveland.

    More special than Matt Jones, who adds nothing to the offense, was my point. I'd rather have neither of them and go after another free agent WR.
