The Daily Banter: Cincinnati Cops Are Targeting Athletes?

+ Even though the arrest happened in Texas, ESPN's Ric Bucher, a Cincinnati native, says that Cincinnati police are targeting athletes.

"The relationship in Cincinnati between the police and the professional athletes is challenging, I would say," Bucher said. "I believe there is a little bit of targeting that goes on there."

As noted by Michael David Smith, this isn't the first time we've heard someone claim the same thing. During an interview with Dan Patrick during May of 2007, Lewis said:

"I think there's profiling, no question," Lewis said on the show. "We're (Cincinnati) a small place - our guys stand out, and they know that, and you've got to do things the right way. But when you are arrested for, or you are pulled over for, not putting on your turn signal, there's something wrong there.

"Many people make right turns without putting on their turn signals and it's unfortunate that we've had a guy that's pulled over for not putting on his turn signal.

+ Joe Reedy believes that Cedric Benson won't serve a suspension.

+ I did a quick interview with the Fantasy Football Blog at Razzball.com.

+ Hamilton County still hasn't responded to the Bengals' offer for concessions in "October offering $40 million in concessions but asked for a change in the lease that could possibly allow the team to leave in 2017."

+ Robert Geather's younger brother Clifton was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the sixth round during this year's NFL Draft. On Monday, Geathers signed his multi-year deal with the Browns.

+ Steelers right tackle Willie Colon suffered an Achilles injury and will likely miss the entire season. As a result former Cowboys' offensive lineman Flozell Adams visited the Steelers and took a physical on Tuesday.

+ Quarterback Mark Brunell filed for Chapter 11 and now owes $24.7 million.
