    I understand your logic, Nate. On paper it’s a win-win. But if I’m GM, and my players who have not had issues with CP are telling me it is not good to bring him back, then I have to respect that and I’m very reluctant to go against what they are telling me.

    If Tank and Ced are two of only 3 or 4 players who feel this way, then I give serious consideration to pursuing your solution. But if 6 or 8 other players agree with them, I don’t go there. You can’t have 20% of your team lacking respect for the guy who the face of the team.

    Unfortunately, with Mike Brown as GM, I doubt he has consulted anyone but himself on how to proceed. Which is why he sucks as a GM.

    Given that the Bengals are installing a new offense anyway, a 1-year deal with a Rent-a-Vet is a better option than risking upsetting team chemistry. CP has been merely average the last 3 years anyway, so you’ll probably be getting similar talent level but minus the baggage.

    Yeah, we touched on this in the podcast last night. It would be awesome if Carson could mentor Dalton the way Kitna did for Carson. I just don’t know how Carson decides to come back after all that has been said.
