true... you get his 1st round contract though but its probably manageable....  

But it wont matter if hes an upgrade if we cant actually get him on the field

His 4 years i think is something like 11mil in total?

I guess you look at the background of his issues and whether its unrepairable or just a change of scenery needed. He may want to go somewhere where he can play.

Like Deltha O'Neal, Cedric Benson, Reggie Nelson, and Adam Jones?

There is always a chance, but I would not bet on it.

However, until last year the Bengals were on one of the worst string of first round busts ever.

All true. I also really liked Isaiah Wilson a lot in that Draft. 

I was wrong with both him and Hernandez. Really tough to predict how a player is going to play in the NFL...

The best players certainly don't always come out of the first round.
