MARVIN WANTS A G.M.

Plagued for years by the inadequate devotion of resources to the personnel department, the Cincinnati Bengals have no G.M. and not enough scouts.

A league source now tells us that coach Marvin Lewis is lobbying internally for the hiring of a General Manager who would assume responsibility for shaping the team's personnel. Though we assume that Lewis would want to maintain final say over the 53-man roster, Lewis apparently realizes that not enough time, money, and/or effort has been devoted to ensuring that the right players are added to the team.

The Bengals have developed a reputation for drafting guys whom other teams take off of their boards. The problem, as it's been explained to us, is that when players like Frostee Rucker and Chris Henry and A.J. Nicholson are available in lower rounds than their talent might otherwise dictate, the Bengals go for the talent not because they don't care about bad character, but because they lack the confidence to identify the best of the players who haven't slid down the board.

I think also it's finally dawned on Lewis that when you draft that guy, and the league then suspends him, it's the same as not having him... a waste of a pick.

If you lived here in Cinci.........you'd know it's pretty common knowledge that Mike Brown would be dead set against this. Doubtful it will ever happen.

Marvin knows this and it's his way of passing the buck.
