Rashad Jeanty returning to Cincinnati in 2010

Before the owners voted against extending the old Collective Bargaining Agreement, Bengals linebacker Rashad Jeanty would have become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Instead, the owners ended up voting against the CBA -- something Mike Brown originally voted against in 2006, thus fulfilling his role as the prophet visionary we've known him to be (and if can't laugh at my sarcasm, then you like to kick kittens, meanie).

It was reported that Jeanty visited Miami where he could have competed to become the team's starting strong-side linebacker. Then he supposedly was scheduled to make visits with other NFL teams.

In the end, Jeanty is coming back to Cincinnati for the 2010 season. Geoff Hobson writes that "plans to sign his one-year tender of $1.2 million to stay in Cincinnati." Jeanty staying is a solid move for the Bengals. He's a strong special teams guy and keeps the team's linebacker depth solid. Alex Marvez wrote on earlier in the month that Jeanty should be recovered when minicamps roll around after the linebacker suffered a fracture fibula on the game's opening kickoff against the New York Jets during Wildcard weekend.
