Rogers arrivial would have been the strongest signal that the Bengals will play a 3-4 defense in 2008. It was also a pretty strong indication that they didn't think their target in round one, Southern Cal's Sedrick Ellis, would be available when the Bengals pick 9th overall.
SI.com has the round up of the first day of NFL free agency, busy to say the least. The Bengals have lost Madieu Williams to the Vikings for a crazy deal. And Justin Smith, as expected, will be with some other team before the weekend is out.
The injury news out of the Reds camp tonight isn't encouraging. It appears Alex Gonzalez will be completely inactive for the next three weeks. Only then, will his stress fracture in his knee be re-evaluated. And the possibility for surgery exists. Sounds like Jeff Keppinger will be the opening day short stop.
The set up is a bit long, but you have to see this halftime slam dunk attempt that went terribly wrong. If you don't cringe, there is something wrong with you.
