Anthony Collins choosing between Bengals, Panthers and Buccaneers

Apparently the Bengals are one of three teams that Anthony Collins is choosing.

We get the game. We understand it. Add teams to a repository of those interested in a player, the more certain teams may add a few dollars and coins to their respective offers. That's how the free agency game works.

(Continuing our Wednesday night theme of The Wire)

Earlier on Wednesday we asked, "what's the hold up with Anthony Collins."

Apparently, it's Anthony Collins.

We've known about the Buccaneers. The Bengals are in, per former Bengals defensive tackle John Thornton. And so are the... Panthers (who had their $18.3 million-under-the-cap figure smoked after Greg Hardy's $13 million franchise tag). According to Over The Cap, the Panthers currently have $5 million against the cap. On the perceived $6-7 million/year average being speculated, it could work with a minimal base pay in the first year.

We'll see about the Bengals though... Collins-fatigue is starting to set in.
