You have to give the Bengals some credit. While the entire world stopped waiting for T.J. Houshmandzadeh to declare his allegiances, the Bengals were efforting to bring him back. Since then, the Bengals have openly brought guys in, signed several and solidified their roster.
On Thursday, the Bengals confirmed a visit with left tackle George Foster. A first round pick, twentieth selection by the Denver Broncos, Foster was the second offensive tackle taken in the 2003 NFL Draft -- the first was Jordan Gross. Still relatively young (he's 28), Foster joined the Lions in 2007 after a trade with Denver. He's played in 68 games and started 57.
