Per John Clayton, the Bengals are asking for a first and a third round pick for Chad Johnson. If it is true that Johnson is on the trading block and it’s also true that this is the Bengals’ asking price then expect to see him back in Cincinnati.
We’re not even sure you could talk Dan Snyder into something that dumb. Not only would the new team be giving up two valuable picks, they would also be signing the 31 year-old to a new contract. And keep in mind there are question marks about his future effectiveness after a terrible ‘08.
It remains to be seen whether this is just posturing by the Bengals in negotiations. But if it isn’t, Johnson will be spending another season on a losing team in Cincinnati.
If this is true then F that! They've gotta be CRAZY asking a 1st and ANYTHING to take their garbage out. I mean, I would like to see what he can do here as much as the next guy, but shit. This is an aging player with declining stats. A fresh start in a new system might breathe some new life into him, then again it might not. 1st and 3rd...WOW!
