Coming off a playoff berth and with a largely skeptical fan base, will be the most important offseason the Bengals have ever faced. Instead of going out and getting a veteran second receiver in free agency, what message does it send to the fan base that they are going to try and redeem someone one more time? There are lots of players who have potential in this league, but if you base Simpson’s production on results and not the wow factor, he hasn’t delivered. The off-field matter should only reinforce why it isn’t worth it. It’s time for another team to take over the role of redeemer.
