Bad news for Dillon?

Moderator: Football Moderators

I think Cincinatti may be asking a little much for Corey Dillon, but not because of any lack of talent on Dillon's part - moreso that they don't want or need him, which ought to bring the price down some.

I've been watching Dillon since his days at University of Washington and have always been impressed by his play. Even when Cincinatti was the team everyone pointed and laughed at, Dillon appeared to play his hardest, even when there was no point in doing so - and he put up some decent numbers too. He may be an a$$hole, but he's a quality player who would thrive under the right circumstances and help whatever team he may go to get that much closer to glory (unless that team happens to be the Raiders).

Assuming he lands in Dallas, I think he would do very well there. Bill Parcells would be able to deal with antics, as he's shown capable of before, and increase Dillon's level of play. Sounds like a good match to me.

Most all of the decent defenses have no trouble shutting him down, which should make a team think twice about giving up very much for this overrated RB.


He does tend to BLOW UP against some weaker defenses. You do have to remember though, HE was the bengals offense prior to last year. They really had no passing game, their O-Line sucked and they didnt have any other weapons. Throw into the mix that they play Baltimore and Pitt twice every year, who have had great D's and his numbers are actually more impressive than they look.

It might be just talk but Coach Lewis has said that he would be happy if Dillon came back to split time with Rudi and that it takes two RB's to win. I hope that is not what happens.

If the Raiders L. Kennedy retires, Rod Woodson retires and Romo? retires, that would open up a lot of $$. Plus there are always some good cuts come June 1st. I guess we will just wait and see unless someone pulls the trigger on Dillon.

No way - the Raiders just really suck. ;-)

...maybe my keeper league, too. Tyrone Wheatley and Justin Fargas will combine for four million fantasy points and my team will dominate...

There might be a few more teams come draft day that enter into the fray for Dillon....

From Pat Kirwan
Senior Analyst for NFL.com

"The Bengals will drop their trade demands from something close to a third-round pick down to maybe even a seventh to get Dillon out of Cincinnati. Most believe the Raiders are the probable stop for Dillon but a change in the price tag might bring someone else to the table."
