If there stands a chance that Chris Perry is ready to go, the likelihood that the Bengals sign Shaun Alexander drops significantly unless they write off Kenny Watson and DeDe Dorsey and assume that Kenny Irons won't be playing 2008. Apparently Perry is ready to go for this week's voluntary on-field work. Even so, little is known about negotiations between Alexander and the Bengals other than they haven't happened as of Friday. My opinion is that if it hasn't happened yet, it probably won't.
Chris Perry was the Bengals wildcard during the team's 2005 AFC North Title run converting 31% of his 51 receptions for first downs while gaining 604 yards total on 112 touches (5.4 y/p). Since that season the Bengals are one game below .500 while Perry played in six (3-3) of 32 contests during that stretch.
The Bengals are 13-9 when Perry plays since 2004.
