    Apparently part of the reason for that deal is Keith Rivers injured his wrist in the off season and will be out for several weeks

    J Jo to Texans in a 5 yr deal. Bengals look to be keeping with that losing tradition!
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Good googly moogly. Every year somebody overpays for a corner. This is the definition of overpaying for a corner. It sucks that the Bengals lose him. JJo was always nicked up. Texans overpaid. I hate the contract.
    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.

    After seeing what Houston paid Joseph I'm glad we didn't go that high. That would be ridiculous money for a #2 corner. I guess the only question is what in the world are we going to spend that money on now.

    As I think you'll find out this year, Joseph was never the #2 corner on this team.

    I dunno. I don't think there is a huge difference between him and Leon Hall, but if I had to pick I'd take Leon all day. JJ has had too many injury issues and Leon Hall is about as dependable as you'll find.

    I agree Leon has the edge in terms of health, which can't be overlooked, but in terms of performance on the field, I'd take Joseph any day over Hall. It'd be nice to have both, but that ship has obviously sailed.

    Jaguars update - Jags needed up upgrade defensively big time in linebackers and defensive backfield. So far they've added MLB Paul Poluszny, OLB Clint Sessions, and Safety Dawan Landry.

    Hall can play zone...JJ can defend man to man. JJ was not Roy Williams. He missed about 5 games in 2 years after missing a lot the previous year.....but he was still there at least 13-14 times a year.

    He became overpaid beacuse he was lowballed by SOP when he would have signed for less. But that is SOP MO.

    And Brown will field a joke team in 2011 and 2012. They are nearly 50M under the cap right now---and with NOTHING to spend the money on.

    Mike Brown was what Mel Brooks had in mind when he came up with the character.... Count De Money in his "History of the World" Movie.
