Default Odell Thurman Officially Reinstated

Quote:
NFL taps Thurman
By GEOFF HOBSON
April 21, 2008

Updated: 4 p.m.
The Bengals announced Monday that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell informed the club middle linebacker Odell Thurman has been reinstated after a two-year exile for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

"Odell has met the NFL's conditions for reinstatement and has been added to our offseason roster," said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis in a press release. "It is now up to Odell to continue to meet all NFL guidelines, and to maintain a standard of personal responsibility that will allow him the chance to compete for a spot on our team."

It means Thurman will be on the field for the spring camps in May and June for the first time since Goodell suspended him for four games in July of 2006 for violations of the substance abuse policy.

Goodell turned it into the entire year two months later when Thurman was arrested Sept. 25 on a DUI. Then for reasons he didn't make public because of the policy's privacy guidelies, Goodell didn't reinstate him for the 2007 season.

Late this January, Thurman, 24, was allowed back into Paul Brown Stadium to work out. But he hasn't played in a game since 2005, when he emerged as a leading Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate with a team-high 148 tackles and four forced fumbles to go with five interceptions that led all rookies.

Congratulations, Bengals! How messed up is your team when the best news you can generate is a doped out criminal who hasn't played for two years made it back onto your roster?

Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Just in time to "mentor"...some of the new draft picks.

You got to think the Bengals are drooling over CB Jack Ikegwuonu from Wisconsin who broke into an apartment to steal an X-Box...not an X-Box 360...but an X-Box.

What kind of nasty, voodoo-ridden, black-magic, noxious curse does your team have...when the only guality character guy you drafted in a 4 year span...breaks his neck and has to retire.

What a shame. He could have been a special player.

That's one team where it is perfectly acceptable to refuse to play. "I got drafted by Cinci? No...uh uh...not gonna happen!"
