Offseason Maneuvering: Cincinnati Bengals

Spring and summer are slow for football fans, but not for the teams and players they love. That's why, from time to time, we'll be checking in on all 32 teams to see what they're up to in the time when winners are built: The Offseason. Today, we peek in on the Cincinnati Bengals.


[At the Bengals Practice Facility]

Chad Johnson: (/storms into the facility)

Johnson: That is it. Ocho Cinco is coming out and saying it. I do NOT want to play for the Cincinnati Bengals. I’m unhappy, and I’m going to be very vocal about it. If that means you’re going to have to get rid of me, you’re going to have to get rid of me.


Marvin Lewis: (/stares)

Lewis: …

Entire Bengals Organization: BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Johnson: Hey! Just what the hell is so funny about you losing one of the best receivers in the league?

Lewis: (/wipes away tears of laughter) Chad, what the hell makes you think you’re not playing for us next year?

Johnson: Well…I’m being difficult and unruly! You can’t keep me around when I’m being that way!

Entire Bengals Organization: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Lewis: (/rolling on the floor laughing) SERIOUSLY, STOP…HAHA..JUST STOP…I CAN’T BREATHE!!!

Lewis: Chad, we’re the Bengals. Do you realize who we’ve had on this team?
