The Cincinnati Bengals continue to be the NFL’s version of a halfway house. Friday the team announced it has agreed to terms with former Jaguars WR Matt Jones.
Jones was released prior to last season after he violated terms of his plea agreement following a conviction for drug possession.
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg for the Bengals.
The team worked out Pacman Jones–sorry–Adam Jones–Thursday. Jones didn’t play anywhere last season after being rejected by the CFL. That alone should be a sign to stay away.
Fresh off a 2009 AFC North Title, the Bengals are evidently looking to spice things up only months after the death of troubled WR Chris Henry. We all know his story.
In addition to adding Matt and possibly Adam Jones, the team is reportedly targeting free agent Terrell Owens.
It seems shocking that the Bengals keep taking chances on players. The franchise’s reputation continues to get worse. LB Rey Maualuga plead guilty to drunken driving in early February.
Hopefully the people at HBO decide to focus on the Bengals training camp again in August; there certainly would be plenty of fascinating topics to discuss.
