Rumor MBIII for Ocho?

Postby SLAMLLC » Fri May 02, 2008 9:03 am

Rumor on the streets is that maybe MBIII goes to Cincy for Chad.

Think about it.

Almost seems like it might have been discussed before the draft.

I thought something might be up with Dallas going after Choice after they picked Felix. Now they have two rookie RB with good potential. They have been giving off weird vibes about not seeming like they want to give MBIII what he wants. This would leave the Cowboys with two rookie RB's and then they could sign a "Value" veteran like SA, Rhodes, maybe Jordan if released, or my favorite Kevin Jones. Doesn't anyone see it odd the Cowboys didn't pick a WR in the draft with their obvious need?

Cincy could use a solid RB right now. Yet they don't draft one with the ninth pick, or any pick? What's up with that? Chad wants out we all know that. They solve that problem and get MBIII. Doesn't really make much sense that they turn down a first round 2008 pick from Washington with a third round possibly becomming a second or first in 2009, unless they saw something more appealing. Possibly two first round picks for a 30 year old player claiming to want to sit out? Seems stupid unless there is more...

It makes all too much sense. Any thoughts?

There's the link. I do not think this has much truth to it. Seems to be more idle speculation.

Actually it makes no sense and would be a colossally idiotic move that would go down in history as proof that Jerry Jones is in fact not from this world, but sent here to destroy America's Team from a realm yet to be discovered.

The Cowboys dynasty of the 90s was anchored on a solid running game, and the new Cowboys now again have a solid running game. I don't think they would change that. Plus, there is nothing wrong with having two good RBs in real life, it makes opposing defenses cringe when they have to try to tackle a fresh RB that is nearly as skilled as the starter.

Ocho is not being traded. I have no idea where this word on the streets gets out but I'm sick of talking about Chad Johnson. The Bengals organization will keep Ocho on the bench all season if they must, they're not trading him. Didn't anyone hear the words of Marvin Lewis when Chad said; "trade me or I'll sit all year!" Lewis responds: "Sit all year if you have to." Chads under contract with the Bengals and even though he is a star he can't leave without their OK unless he's an unrestricted free agent.

I don't see why how or where all these rumors are coming from. The Redskins said to the Bengals name your price for Chad Johnson, and the Bengals said there was no price. How much more torment must we go through before these rumors stop about Chad Johnson.

And uh, who would want to trade away one of the best looking young RB's in the league right now? Cowboys would be nuts to cut loose MBIII.

The only people who really think that Dallas is "America's Team" are cowgirls fans. :-D

The Bengals are not going to trade CJ. If they had any intention of trading him, they would have traded him to Washington for two first round picks.
