Alexander to contact Bengals
BY MARK CURNUTTE | MCURNUTTE@ENQUIRER.COM

Running back Shaun Alexander, cut loose by Seattle less than two weeks ago, will be contacting his favorite boyhood team, the Bengals.

"Making calls to teams. Bengals are on our list!" Jim Steiner, Alexander's agent, told The Enquirer in an e-mail Wednesday.

The Bengals did not use any of their 10 picks in last weekend's NFL Draft on a running back.

Coach Marvin Lewis said the Bengals are optimistic that tailbacks Rudi Johnson (hamstring) and Chris Perry (ankle, lower leg) will return to health and the field.

The team has some depth at the position with Kenny Watson and also has the untapped potential of DeDe Dorsey, who has been a regular at the team's practice facility during the offseason.

The Bengals also have Kenny Irons, who probably won't be ready for the start of training camp as he rehabilitates from a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He was the team's second-round draft pick in 2007.

Right.....it's all Shaun's fault the Seahawks haven't been able to get it done, maybe your next 3 time pro bowler RB will be able to take you to the promised land. :-b

Well, it hasn't seemed like SA really wanted it all that bad. He just looks like he has lost the desire and will to be the same caliber of back that he was. I know that injuries have a part to play in it, but I wasn't impressed with his effort watching him play. That might just be me too though. I like the guy and do hope he does good when he gets signed though. ;-D

Yeah I was a little drunk when I wrote that. :-b

No doubt the last few years it looks like he has lost his desire in Seattle. I'm not a big Alexander supporter by any stretch but when I hear people say stuff like "Good riddance" it just rubs me the wrong way. I mean he does have some pretty outstanding accomplishments. I guess thats what football is for some fans though...what have you done lately?

I completely agree with you. Regardless of what people think about him and his effort, he is/was a great RB in the NFL and did good things for the franchise. However, if it was the team you rooted for, I can see where the frustration would come from too.
