Bengals | Have Edge On Vincent - from http://www.KFFL.com
Mon, 8 Mar 2004 12:37:20 -0800

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Cincinnati Bengals are believed to have an edge on acquiring free agent CB Troy Vincent (Eagles). Vincent is leaning toward signing with Cincinnati because of his relationship with Bengals defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, who was Vincent's position coach with the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999-02.

I think Vincent would be a good signing for the Bengals. A great guy who, at 32, has potentially got a couple great years left at CB, and (at 6-1, 200) could probably successfully move to safety if and when he loses a step.

This would be a good pickup for us.. Although i was hoping for someone younger, this would fill an obvious need in the secondary

Vincent will be a great signing for anyone IMO. especially if the team can work on bringing along a couple young CB's. He most likely only has another 2 years or so of quality playing time at CB before he turnds into antother Ray Buchanon.

Good pick up for the Bengals they have a lot of young CB that they drafted last year and Vincent could really show these kid how its done.

He would make a good safety he has the size and he can hit like a mack truck. Maybe it might be like Ronnie Lott comes to Cinnci

He's not CIncys just yet...KC Star article from this morning has an article saying TV will be in KC this week to interview....Shawn Barber is trying convince him to come to KC

Chiefs wooing Pro Bowl corner

Vincent here today; also, tackles visit

By ADAM TEICHER

The Kansas City Star

Linebacker Shawn Barber has been bugging his good buddy, free-agent Pro Bowl cornerback Troy Vincent, to come play for the Chiefs.

Those lobbying efforts have yet to pay off with Barber's ultimate goal, which is Vincent's name on a Chiefs' contract. But the process will at least start today when Vincent arrives at Arrowhead Stadium to meet with club officials.

The Chiefs, preparing for the potential loss of tackle John Tait, entertained their first free agents of the signing period Monday. They met with tackles Chris Bober of the Giants and Barry Stokes of the Browns.

Bober, 27, was mainly a center in his four seasons with New York but was shifted to right tackle last season because of injuries. He played the position well enough to attract the interest of the Chiefs. Stokes, 30, has six seasons of NFL experience with Miami, Green Bay and Cleveland but didn't become a starter until joining the Browns in 2002.

The Chiefs have until Friday to decide whether to match the offer sheet that Tait, their transition player, signed last Friday with Chicago.

Barber was a teammate of Vincent's with Philadelphia in 2002. They became friends, and Barber began his efforts to lure Vincent to the Chiefs shortly after the Eagles lost to Carolina in the NFC championship game.

The Chiefs are looking for help at cornerback, particularly with nickel back William Bartee on a free-agent tour. Bartee met with the Giants in New York last week and was in Green Bay on Monday.

Vincent, 32, is far more than a nickel back — and his addition would push either of the two current starters, Dexter McCleon or Eric Warfield, to that spot. Vincent was selected to the Pro Bowl this season for the fifth consecutive year.

He visited with Buffalo and Cincinnati last week.

Barber didn't return phone messages Monday, but his involvement may be a bad omen for Chiefs fans. Shortly after joining the Chiefs as a free agent last year, Barber lobbied Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas to join him in Kansas City.

Douglas paid a visit on the Chiefs but signed with Jacksonville.
