I thought he was going to be a really nice pickup for a young QB is a "west coast like" offense.
The fear is that Bo Scaife suffered a season-ending shoulder injury Thursday, which would open the receiving spot for Coffman behind starter Jermaine Gresham if the Bengals decide to stay pat with a guy that knows the system.
(Free agent rookie tight end Colin Cochart just may make it now because of his blocking and the fact the Bengals doubt he'd get through waivers to make the practice squad.)

By the way, is it just me or does it get really old when Hobnob dribbles on about how we have to keep this sort of - almost - maybe potential-rich rookie on the active roster since he won'y make it to the practice squad? When has that actually ever happened that a team snapped up the guy we wanted to develop on the PS? The last one that comes to mind was Santucci back in '07 (Biscoe doesn't count since he actually made it through waivers).
