Default Bengals Trade For Robertson

Quote:
Sources: Bengals send picks to Jets for Robertson

The New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms on a trade that would send defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson to the Bengals in exchange for Cincinnati's fourth- and fifth-round picks (Nos. 114 and 151) in the upcoming draft, according to league sources.


Robertson
Completion of the trade is contingent upon Robertson agreeing to a new contract -- he had two years remaining on his rookie deal with New York -- and passing a physical, though neither is expected to hold up the deal, which could be finalized as early as Monday.

On Friday the Bengals had a deal in place to acquire Lions defensive tackle Shaun Rogers in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks, but that trade fell through when it did not meet league approval. The Lions then traded Rogers to the Bengals' in-state rivals, the Browns, for a third rounder and cornerback Leigh Bodden.

In Robertson, 26, the Bengals, hoping to improve a defense that has ranked higher than 27th in yards allowed once in the past five seasons, will get a player who isn't as big or as dominant as Rogers has been in his first five season. But Robertson is just as hungry for a fresh start. Robertson, 6-foot-1 and 310 pounds, should be a better fit as a penetrating "3-technique" tackle in Cincinnati's 4-3 scheme than he had been in the Jets' 3-4 the past two years.

In an interesting twist, the Bengals will have on their roster two of the first four picks in the 2003 draft. In fact, Cincinnati selected quarterback Carson Palmer first overall that year from among a group of four finalists that also included Robertson, whom Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis (along with many other personnel evaluators) is said to have loved coming out of the University of Kentucky.

Robertson will be the fifth interior defensive lineman to be dealt for at least one draft pick since Friday, joining Corey Williams (Packers to Browns), Kris Jenkins (Panthers to Jets), Marcus Stroud (Jaguars to Bills) and Rogers. Some do not consider the 2008 draft to be deep at the defensive tackle position, thus several teams have decided to instead spend pick on a veteran.

At least we got something.

He was never arrested, I'm not sure how he passed the Marvin Lewis backround screening.

I'm now just waiting for the next upcoming thread in the Steelers section...

Pretty good pick up for Cincy. They need a lot more than that though IMO.

Lol, if you can't outbid the Browns for two better options on the market... I guess picking up Robertson was the next best move since they failed on their first attempt with Rodgers.

Not that Robertson is an All Pro, this is not good news for Mahan since Robertson abused him last year...but I think anyone lining across from Mahan isn't good news.

That's great...too bad its the Bengals and they have a disgruntled Offense, a very lacking defense and a coaching staff that doesn't know which way is up and which way is down.

Nothing like knocking them out of the playoffs 2 of the last 3 years, and then sweeping them in 07. Nothing like kicking them right in the teeth, or knocking their teeth out, every single time we play them. 4-1 in the last 5 games. I Fear NOT the Bengals.

Looks like he didn't pass Marvin's backround screening afterall.

Robertson: C'mon coach, just give me a chance.

Lewis: Sorry kid, at least get busted with a pipe or some PCP. Have you taken a look at Chris Henry or a number of the other thugs we have on this team? Learn from the veterans and get back to us.
