PERRY HAS ANOTHER HERNIA

Regarding the Bengals, they might want to think twice before shipping running back Rudi Johnson anywhere. A league source tells us that Johnson's backup/heir apparent, 2004 first-rounder Chris Perry, needs surgery for yet another sports hernia.

Perry landed on injured reserve in 2004 with a sports hernia on one side of his body. Now, he's got one on the other side.

There have been whispers that Perry, who had all of two carries for all of one yard in his rookie season, could end up being a bust. We've heard reports that he's had trouble fitting in with his teammates, and it looks like his offseason preparations will take a major blow if he's sidelined for a month or two after undergoing yet another surgical procedure.

On Monday, Johnson signed his one-year, $6.3 million tender, but he's made no secret of his desire for a long-term deal.

Bingo! I still don't like that draft pick... Had much more pressing needs.

Especially over Kevin Jones? What were they thinking? I knew from the get-go that Perry would be a bust. You can't be that big and slow and still not be a good inside runner.

And Steven Jackson, had they not traded down again.

I know, KJ and S-Jax were too good to pass on. I think they should take a rb again this year, maybe in the 2nd this time. And someone who can actually play in games.

Unreal.... even when he cames back his body will be weak. His dislike within the team will only grow. 8-o

What a waist of a pick!
