Default Alexander to visit Bungles?

http://frontier.cincinnati.com/blogs...to-bengals.asp

The draft is completed. The Bengals did not select a running back. Coach Marvin Lewis said the team is optimistic that tailbacks Rudi Johnson and Chris Perry will return to health and the field in 2008. There is depth with Kenny Watson. There is the untapped potential of DeDe Dorsey, who has been a regular during the offseason at the facility. There is the Kenny Irons, who probably won't be ready for the start of training camp as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL injury, but he was the Bengals' second-round pick in 2007.

OK, what about adding a former league MVP to the mix in Shaun Alexander? The former Boone County star and Florence resident was terminated by the Seahawks this offseason after eight years in Seattle.

"Making calls to teams. Bengals are on our list!" Jim Steiner, Alexander's agent, told The Enquirer in an e-mail this morning.

The NFL's most valuable player in 2005 hit some impressive statistical milestones in 2007.

His four rushing touchdowns give him 100 for his career. He added another receiver touchdown and has 12 in his career.

He rushed 207 times for 716 yards. He now has 2,176 attempts for 9,429 yards. He started 11 games and played in two more, pushing his career totals to 97 starts and 119 games played.

He will turn 31 on Aug. 30.

Questions: If you are the Bengals, do you attempt to sign Alexander and bring him home to end his career? Would the move be more emotional than a dispassionate one that could help the team?

Why would he do that to himself. He's already been humiliated once by the Black and Gold... 2 more time next year if he signs....

Seriously...I look forward to knocking the crap out of him twice a year til he quits the game from being a humilated bengal has-been.

This doesn't surprise in the least. He's a local guy and around here (Cinci) he's considered a football "god". Bungles fans are so stupid.

Can you imagine if they somehow kept Johnson AND signed Alexander? If they signed Shaun they would most likely cut Rudi and take the cap hit, but it would be sweet if they ended up keeping both. Slowest backfield in the league. LMAO.

Well since their running game is garbage, and basically has been for years, maybe they just want a legitimate pass blocker. Oh wait, this is S Alexander we are talking about...never mind.
