Remembering: Reggie McNeal

Reggie McNeal was the Bengals six-round pick in the 2006 NFL draft. The team envisioned the former Texas A&M quarterback becoming a wide receiver, along with a speed-demon Bennie Brazell (a finalist in the 2004 Olympic Games in the 400-meter hurdles) -- both of whom are not playing football in the NFL (Brazell tried out with the Jacksonville Jaguars this off-season, but not offered a contract).

McNeal spent one full season, never registering a catch (but playing seven games), with the Bengals in 2006, subsequently cut in 2007 to get the roster down to 53 men. This may have had a lot to do with an early morning incident on December 3rd, 2006. McNeal was arrested and charged with resisting arrest; McNeal tried to get into a club in Houston, Texas, while going into an obscenity-filled rant. McNeal elbowed an off-duty officer working as a bouncer, who threw McNeal down and arrested him. Later, Houston police added a charge of "possession of a dangerous drug" -- a cigarette laced with antihistamine.

Fast-forward to 2008. Last week against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, McNeal started as the Toronto Argonauts' starting wide receiver for the first time, catching six passes for 101 yards -- team highs. Toronto lost Friday Night, 32-14 to the Montreal Alouettes. McNeal was shutout.
