According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with former offensive guard Nate Livings after visiting the team on Thursday. The five-year deal is worth $19 million with $6.2 million guaranteed. And despite losing another free agent, and despite the fact Cincinnati hasn't signed a free agent on the market since Tuesday, I can't possibly express the joy I feel right now.
Shouts of joy now reverberate throughout Cincinnati. Sailors kiss nurses in Fountain Square, confetti falls from the sky and all of Zion does a freaky half-naked dance under busted water pipes. Cars honk as a show of beautiful bliss passes through each molecule that constitutes our carbon-based units.
That being said Livings is the fourth Bengals free agent to leave Cincinnati for new a new team, following Jonathan Fanene (New England), Mike McGlynn (Indianapolis), and Frostee Rucker (Cleveland). Reggie Nelson is currently visiting with the New York Jets, but if he leaves there without a contract, one has to assume his return to Cincinnati improves due to the overall lack of reported interest in the safety.
