Disgruntled running back Corey Dillon could have Cincinnati in his rear-view mirror before the weekend, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. The Bengals and Raiders are closing in on a deal that would send Dillon west for a draft pick, believed to be in the third or fourth round, the Enquirer said.
The Broncos have also surfaced as a potential player in the Dillon talks, meaning the Bengals may end up getting a second-round pick in the deal if bidding starts to heat up. Both clubs could use a feature back of Dillon's talent, though the Raiders seem to be a better fit for his attitude given their track record of rehabilitating malcontents. You knew Dillon wouldn't be back in Cincy; now we're getting closer to learning the specific destination.
