During the first week of FA, I was very disgruntled. I accused the front office of being cheap, and not wanting to win. However, if they sign Smith, I think we had a VERY good offseason. We are staying true to a strategy that deserves to be commended. Building a team, rewarding players that have turned their careers around in stripes, and paying for locker room guys that help build character.
Maualuga was a great move that accents our philosophy of building confidence in our players over time. I want Newman back and Howard for depth, but if Smith signs.....we draft BPA, and that is going to be very good for our present AND our future. Thank you MB, thanks Katie, I am proud that we will not be making mass cuts to stay under cap, and I believe the bengals have created an identity of which we can be proud.
I am sorry for not having faith in Marvin and our FO.
