Is Arrington playing the Bengals for more dough?

New, comment

Cincinnati Enquirer beat writer, Mark Curnutte reports that "Former Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington and former Ravens quarterback Anthony Wright are making free-agent visits today to Cincinnati."

I have no problem whatsoever if Arrington is signed by the Bengals.  I'm not exactly sure what that would indicate -- transition to 3-4 or maybe David Pollack going to defensive end -- but his talent is unquestionable.  It's the team player aspect people question.  It's being a role player rather than trying to take on everything at the risk of the defense as a whole. It's the cost of bringing in a high-priced guy and the ramifications of other positions suffering due to a lack of cash. It's these things that have people a little skeptical.  And who can blame them?

It was speculated after Seattle signed Julian Peterson to a huge contract that Arrington would want something similar -- obviously taking the Bengals out of the sign Arrington sweepstakes.

Do you think we should sign Arrington?
