Trade Gresham

Crucial penalties, crucial dropped balls, crucial missed blocks; those are the things that come to mind when I think of Jermaine Gresham. A former 1st round pick by the Cincinnati Bengals who were looking to land their super star tight end of the future. The good thing about drafting a TE in that year was that many TE's turned out to be great. The bad thing, Gresham wasn't one of them. Missing out on players like Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, and even wide receiver Dez Bryant, to name a few, the Bengals got the short end of the stick by getting a player who just didn't grow into his full potential.

Enter today. The Cincinnati Bengals have a team poised to make a run deep into the playoffs. Andy Dalton is playing up to par and their two super star draft picks Bernard and Eifert have the makings of elite players. The defense though, is in question now. With Leon Hall out, Adam Jones being, well, to put it softly, mediocre, and Terrance Newman old and kind of nicked up, the Bengal's defense is in need of some serious help at corner back.

Here's an idea: Trade Gresham for a decent corner and maybe a mid round draft pick. The league perceives Gresham as a good, pro bowl caliber tight end, so the value is there. Having Eifert as our starting TE with Charles and Smith backing him up would be a more than decent TE corps. Sometimes teams have to make tough decisions and I believe this is one that the team needs to make.
