I dont know if any is watching this but man does he want out! I have no idea why they dont just trade him. He obviously doesnt want to play there anymore.

They showed a short clip of him on ESPN as well said he wanted to play for a team that will make the playoffs and he was not sure they could.

He was saying he wants to get paid, but he doesnt want to get paid from the bengals.

Anyone know the cap ramifications of trading CJ? He signed an extension in 06, but he only got a $5M signing bonus for a 6 year $30M+ deal. Typically that would mean his cap hit for trading would be tiny, but I'm guessing the low signing bonus was because Mike Brown doesn't like forking out large bonuses, and some base salaries/roster bonuses are guaranteed.

Well there should be plenty of teams interested I suppose.

He also said he only plays for the money. That all players just play to get a bigger contract, which is true to an extent.

If this is the cause he wont care where he goes as long as he is gettin paid.

Send him to Carolina. The receiving core would be sick. Chad has already said in a Charlotte radio interview, "85+89=Super Bowl!"

He also went on just about every other team's local media and made a similar comment, didn't he?

LOL yea he did which was funny he was making comments about winners then talking about playing for the panthers who are going to struggle to make the playoffs...Didnt Deangelo Hall just go on a tirade about wanting to be on a winner/contender? He was tired of losing, so he went to Oakland for alot of money...I really dont pay any attention to half of what these athletes say, they are just saying what their agent is telling them to say, their actions speak louder then words.

Funny, my wife said the same thing. I really think that there might be more to this than we are seeing. I don't think it is similar to the T.O. and Randy Moss situations. I felt sorry for him yesterday.

Pretty much the whole interview felt really awkward, like the kind of awkwardness I use to see during the quiet moments of NYPD Blue.

Cmon Chad come to DC.

Portis has said that he talks to Chad, and wants to get him in DC.

i really doubt hes getting traded, and if he does it will only be for picks. We just gave him a huuge contract so it will be a major cap hit. I honestly don't care if he plays for us. I'd prefer that he did but idk if his heart is gonna be into it.

I really just think that he is stupid....he's not gonna get into a situation much better than the Bengals.

MooshooGawd
03-19-2008, 10:53 PM
Trading him isn't a realistic option. The Bengals wouldn't be saving any money towards the cap. Hell, it wouldn't even be a small hit. The Bengals would take cap hit of over 8 million dollars if they were to get rid of him...

You can't do that. If it were possible, Id think that the Bengals would be willing to move him, but it's just not going to happen.

PalmerToCJ
03-19-2008, 11:02 PM
It's reported to be an 8 million dollar cap hit. No chance he gets traded, unfortunately.

Wish he'd shut his mouth and play on the contract he just signed, the 3rd contract he's recieved.

Yung Flippa
03-19-2008, 11:08 PM
I wouldn't mind the Ravens taking him. But theres probably like only 15% chance he gets traded. And to a rival....

OzTitan
03-20-2008, 01:09 AM
$8M *net* cap hit? or just a $8M hit? Because he already has a $6M or so cap figure for 08.

Why is that such a big deal anyway? It's not like Mike Brown has to pay anyone $8M, it'd just be $8M of cap they probably won't use anyway. He'd probably *like* to have a way to limit cap room - $8M in dead money is $8M he doesn't have to spend.

Chad Johnson Roddy White and Laurent Robinson...sounds stellar to me.

OzTitan
03-20-2008, 09:34 AM
BTW, players *can* (from what I understand with Arrington and Coles in Washington) pay back signing bonus that is outstanding against the cap in future years to help accelerate their trade/release. I'd say Chad would happy pay the required amount until his removal becomes a net cap savings to be traded going off this recent outing in the media. He'd have a new SB waiting for him on his new team anyway.

Lions Trade 1st round pick in 2008 for Chad Johnson! Freep asked Matt Millen about the aquisition and he said "There isn't any WR good enough to spend a 1st round pick on this year so we had to trade for one."

Most recently, Ocho Cinco appeared on FSNs Best Damn Sports Show Period, and he talked about possibly playing for the Dallas Cowboys.

If I end up in Dallas, I would just look at which finger Im gonna put it on, Johnson said. Thats it. Aint no ifs, ands or buts about it.

But what about the fact that Terrell Owens is already the top wideout on the team?

Its gonna work, Johnson said. T.J. [Houshmandzadeh] and Chad Johnson are no different than 81′ and 85′ because T.J. is a No. 1 receiver. We just happen to be two No. 1 receivers on the same team at the same time. Its no different.

Drew Rosenhaus represents Owens and Johnson. So if there were a way to get Cinco to Dallas, Rosenhaus would do everything in his power to ensure that there would be no friction between two of the biggest egos in all of pro sports.

He wants to win and be a number one receiver. And I am sure he would be displeased with a rookie quarterback. Horrible idea. Roddy White is our guy.

Jerry wants to make a big splash this offseason and a draft day trade for 85 sounds like a Jerry move to me. Two first rounders to spare so its certainly not out of the question either.

TO, 85 and Witten... that should give Romo a bigger boner than Jessica does.

I dont know, Chad was freaking out when Carson got hurt last time, Delhomme isnt even 100% and if he didnt heal right from tommy john surgery or has to miss any more games, he wont handle that well either...Steve Smith barely got the ball last year after he went down, dont see how they both would get the ball enough unless they have a backup plan at qb.

in 2003 during TC, they filmed chad saying to Marvin Lewis that he was gonna be the greatest WR ever. the two seemed to be good friends, guess not anymore

We both had safe bets at the time... I mean Palmer/CJ and Vick were all signed to long term deals. I'll give Chad credit, at least he hasn't pulled a Vick on us.
