Bengals sign DT DJ Reader (4 years, $53 M)

Recommended Posts

Nobody has said Reader is crappy. But he is a luxury signing for a team that is still starting Bobby Hart and only has 1 LB on the roster who played much last year.

I sort of disagree.  They didn't get much production opposite of Geno last year, and Geno hardly produced himself.  A good Dline needs a good anchor in the middle.  Reader can be that.

Regarding LB - they tried and missed.  Should they have just not signed Reader after that?

Also, i get it.  LB was the bigger need, and guard a close second.  I would have rather had a LB too.  But they got a good player, so be happy for once lol.

Yes, the run defense should be improved. That's a good thing. But they still need a couple of LBs and the O-line is still woeful.

Because I'm bored and I think you need a laugh (read it as Mike Brown singing Gloria Gaynor.... if you don't know it, you tube it

 

At first I was afraid, I was petrified

Kept remembering Antonio Bryant and that injury he tried to hide

So I spent so many nights, thinking free agency was wrong.

But I grew strong,  now I know how to get along

And now I'm back and in my place

Just signed DJ Reader to take up a lot of space

And just when you thought we were all set at DB

Im cutting WhoDre loose, improving the secondary...

Cuz Mike Brown, yes am I 

I will survive

We missed out on top linebackers

So we settled for D-line

 

I ain't got much time to live

And I got all this cash to give

So I'll survive, yes I'll survive
