Bengals Not Offering Comment: Will The Organization Implement Furlough Policy?

According to the New York Daily News, the New York Jets will "institute a furlough policy for employees", if the owners end up locking out the players on March 4. Employees will still have a job, but they'll be forced to take a one-week, "unpaid leave each month until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached." The Jets are the only NFL team to publicly talk about it -- though we hardly believe they're going to be the only one implementing it.

And it does seem like something the Bengals would do, doesn't it?

However, they're not commenting on the matter.

“We are not going to share information about furloughs or anything else in that regard,” Brennan said.

According to the Sports Business Daily, the Jets have "roughly 158 employees, 96 on the business side and the remainder on the football side."

However, the 62 people involved in the football side of things will be "immune to furloughs for now."
