The Bungels Tag Rudi.

Name a team that would trade away picks for this franchised RB? Especially this year with so many backs available?

Did I read somewhere that the mandatory compensation for a franchised player in trade is at least one first round pick? Or am I making that up?

i think it is a first round pick.

and what is the pay? top 6 at the poisition?

its ridiculous.

I guess they could remove the tag though.

It's two first round picks. I knew it was at least one. I couldnt remember if two was mandatory as well.

wow -- I hope I am wrong, but that seems kind of dumb from the bengals perspective.

some teams this year have used the franchise on players they would rather not sign perhaps (eagles with simon comes to mind) in an attempt to leverage some trades.

But that price for rudi johnson? who is going to pay that in this market? so all they did was spend money they didn't have to spend I think

from a trade standpoint not a very good move, but from a personel standpoint,,very good, instead of forking out a long term deal and BONU$, they pay him large for one year and two things happen, is he the real deal or can Chris Perry take over. one of the two will happen

wasn't perry the guy they traded won for? at the expense of steven jackson?

I don't know why they don't just let rudi walk and use the money elsewhere to be honest.

RB isn;t like other positions -- you don't need to groom someone nearly as much.

off of rotoworld

Bengals designated Rudi Johnson their franchise player.
They will continue to negotiate a long-term deal, but he'll likely play under a one-year tender worth $6.23 million. Johnson has threatened to hold out without an extension, but that would risk giving up valuable camp time to Chris Perry. Feb. 15 - 2:27 pm et

Which will answer the How much money catagory. alot for Rdui IMO. Which is from the espn artical sorry about that.

The franchise tag doesnt seem like trade bait to me, but its not that bad of an idea. It gives them time to structure a long-term deal with Rudi while not having to fend off competitive offers. And since Rudi has said publicly he'd like to have a long-term deal with the Bengals, its not like he's angry being there, just probably annoyed like most players with the franchise tag because of the lack of job security it provides.

On a side note, whoever said they got nothing for Corey Dillon: look at who they drafted. Williams has become the strongest link in their secondary, and while the Pats certainly got a good end on that deal, so did the Bengals.
