There's a lot of topics to kick around on this Friday heading into Memorial Day Weekend. Since some of you are already done for the weekend, we thought we would get an early start on your forum as well.

On the positive side, rookie guard, Kevin Zeitler signed his contract today, leaving only two other rookies unsigned. This is a stark contrast to the days of old, where many Bengals rookies would not be under contract in late May.

On the negative side, Bengals undrafted rookie free agent, Brandon Joiner was sentenced to three years in prison today. This arrest has cast a black cloud over the franchise once again, and some think that it has tarnished the good offseason that they've achieved thus far. What do you think?

We also want to take this opportunity to thank the men and women who serve(d) in the United States armed forces. We are eternally grateful for what you do for this country. Feel free to share any stories you'd like.
