Oh, sorry. I was just reading/listening to the latest 85 Trade Me rant. Dunno if he's putting us on. Dunno if he's serious. Dunno if he needs the attention. Dunno if the hand running up the back of his shirt and into his jaw belongs to D. Rosenhaus. Dunno why he has to keep saying this stuff. Message received, several messages ago.
Here's all I know:
He has a contract that keeps him here for several years.
Mike Brown loves him. Is not in favor of trading him.
Marvin has said 85 isnt going to be traded.
Which leads me to believe he'll be here next year, and so on.
Maybe he'll hold out. Maybe he'll ask for his deal to be re-done. Good luck.
Here's something else:
Receivers arent hard to find.
Receivers and running backs are often not much better than those throwing to them or blocking for them. How was Wes Welker pre-Tom Brady?
With 85 and TJ, the Bengals won 7 times playing an easy schedule. Unless 85 can rush the passer or be the next Ray Lewis, they'll probably win 7 with him again next year.
It's long past amusing listening to 85 bang the spoon on the high chair. If he stays, great. He's a lot of fun to watch. If he goes, well, whatever. It's the easiest position to fill in the league.
