Chad Johnson appears to want out

Our old pal!
Who knows whether this will motivate the Bengals to do a deal, but Chad Johnson has went out on an offensive against the Bengals organization. As a guest on ESPN's Mike & Mike he said it was time for him to leave.
Chad Johnson's efforts to manufacture a trade from the Bengals hit full stride today when he took his complaints with the Bengals national on the Mike & Mike radio show on ESPN.

"I was labeled selfish and a cancer, and it hurt," he said. "Fingers were pointed at me this year. If the team and the organization wants to further itself (make the playoffs), I think you need to get rid of the problem.

"It hurt me. To do me that way and not to have my back. Things were said, and nobody came to my defense."

Could this be more possible than I first thought? I would certainly hope that if it is the Eagles aren't gun shy because of the TO incident. If Johnson is out there, go get him.

Oh and for what's it worth, about a week prior to Johnson's appearance on Mike and Mike his QB, Carson Palmer, was on the show and said the Bengals should give Chad an extension.
