Last I heard, Jim Gould said when the option was declined by the team that they meaning the Bengals, might want to do something....later? Signing him for 5 years likely doesn't raise his cap number, if the numbers are close to reasonable, the players getting married, settling down, good guy, good blocker, durability improved, but that option was too high after the new cba. Could see Whit at RT in 2013, and Wharton at LT, or vise versa, AND THERE IS ANOTHER second round CENTER/GUARD COMING OUT OF WSCONSIN, THOSE WISCONSIN BOYS CAN RUN BLOCK. If Otis hits the ground running where he left off, they might get three years service out of him, he is not small college per se, I think he was originally at Minnesota? Supposedly explosive blocker. Gotta find out if he is durable, but he has always been durable, anyone can GET ROLLED UP ON. Love Lattimore, but hope a Madieu Williams type who can play inside or out is considered with one of next years two's, hopefully a high two pick at DB, the Wisconsin guard late two, and another premier DB in one, as Alan Cutler says pitching pitching pitching, DB's good ones can FETCH 9 MIL, MEANING THEY ARE VALUABLE, SO ANYTIME MY FAV TEAM GOES DB IN FIRST ROUND I'M HAPPY. THEN JUST RUN BOOM AND BEN, the raiders had good not great runners with Shell Upshaw Otto Dalby those guys.Our guys are better than Mark Van Eegan. A dominant O line can get you a long way, so what's your thoughts, Is AS in the long term pic and is he locked up before the season starts?
