Default Bengals franchise K Shayne Graham

Quote:
The Bengals' first major move of the offseason Monday all but guaranteed kicker Shayne Graham's services for the 2009 season and wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh's entry into free agency.

When he heard that the Bengals had given Graham the franchise tag, Houshmandzadeh jacked the odds at him playing elsewhere in 2009 to "99.2 percent."

Graham told the Bengals public relations department he had no comment.

In Houshmandzadeh and Graham, the Bengals are looking at their two most consistent players of the last five seasons. Graham, who became the Bengals' first Pro Bowl kicker in 2005, has a slew of Bengals' records while moving into second on the all-time scoring list with 682 points, behind only Jim Breech's 1,151.

In franchising Graham, the Bengals had to tender him a one-year deal worth nearly $2.5 million and drop the idea for franchising Houshmandzadeh at $9.88 million.

The Patriots tagged Vinatieri a few seasons ago.

Still the Bengals should the used the tag on their only offensive weapon, Houshmandzadeh.

Well, hopefully Marvin thinks he has a replacement for Housh in one of the many young receivers on our team. There really isn't a replacement for Graham readily available.

Housh doesn't show up to voluntary work outs, he's unwilling to put the extra effort into the team that is needed to get us over the hump in a division full of good defenses. I'm happy with this move, and I'm excited to see who lines up opposite of chad in 2009.

Thats a question that probably depends more on where Chad goes, instead of who becomes the #2 WR in Cinci.

When you don't have a kicker it can become a pretty big problem, and the financial investment is minimum, so it makes sense.

very bad move- kickers are easily replaceable i dont care how good they are. consistent 100 rec/year WRs are not...

his injury could possibly have been career ending. Not to mention, he's said he wanted to play with his brother in Philly already so he's not the long term answer.

This isn't too strange imo. The price for kickers and punters is actually kinda reasonable compared to what it would have cost them to tag Housh or Andrews. And this way they at least make sure one of their free agents stays with the team.

To those complaining about them not tagging Houshmandzadeh, just get it through your head that the Bungles have given up on trying to win now. They need to re-build that team, and it doesn't make sense to give top dollar to an aging WR.

Tagging Graham assures them of keeping their top flight kicker, at a small cost.

Our lack of talent has very little little to do with this year's franchise tag and a lot to do with draft picks being demolished. Guys like Pollack getting career ending injuries, Thurman getting spanked by the commish (unfairly might I add) etc.

Why the heck not? What's wrong with tagging a kicker? If you have no one else to use it on, why not?

This team goes as far as Carson takes them, this is the first move to seperate the two boners Chad and T.J. and its a good one. If you can't dump Chad then you dump his puppy T.J.

This team will draft one of the O-Lineman to protect Carson or Palmer will file suit against the Bengals for being the ******* Bungals and ruining a Hall of Fame talent.
