Remember at the beginning of the off-season when the Bengals released wide reciever Chris Henry because of off-field problems. The Bengals told the media that they were "moving on". The Bengals are back where they started because they started . . . they are close to an agreement with Henry's contract.
"We don't comment on speculated player moves," Cincinnati team spokesman Jack Brennan said. "We only comment when something is done."
It wouldn't be a surprise if Henry is signed by tomarrow (Tuesday), actually, it would be a surprise if he didn't get signed by Tuesday.
Henry, a former Bengal, was released by the team following his fifth arrest in three years for an alleged incident that took place on March 31. But charges of assault and criminal damaging were later dropped, making him eligible to play in 2008. Still, the NFL suspended Henry for the first four games of the season.
Ever since the charges were dropped (a big reason they released them was because they thought that he would plead guilty).
The Bengals have struggled in the past when Henry was not on the field. Last season the team was 2-6 while Henry served an eight-game suspension and 5-3 during the second half of the season with Henry in the lineup.
Henry set that he would concentrate on playing football and not the off-field issues . . .
. . . yeah right
