And when I say new I mean as fans as I am still pretty new to CJ. But I'm not a new Bengals fan. And never in my wildest dreams would I imgine the bengals to start signing guys the first day of free agency. Nor would I want them too.
Think about it would you rather see us going through what Pittsburgh and oakland are going through in a couple years and do a purge? Or would you rather see us sign some middle of the road player like Langford and Gay and be able to sign A.J. and Dalton after their rookie contract. Also everyone wants to say we can't keep our own players but I haven't heard of any of ours being signed by anyone which means we are still in the running for them. Are we gonna lose some yes we are but we will sign some free agent6s too just not mortgage the farm on them. Give me middle tier players in free agency if it means in a couple years we get to keep A.J. Gresh and Dalton and whoever we get this draft for the longhaul. If we come out and stink up the joint this year then you can say I'm an idiot but untill then don't climb the tower looking for Mikey boy just yet.
