Default Congratulations, Bungholes!

Just saw the crawl under the Browns game. Chris Henry is very close to being a Bengal again.

Is there no depth too low?

Obviously not. Hey, I called that one, too!

Definitely a move courtesy of Mike Brown.

That being said, deep down I kinda hoped it would happen. He's a f*ck-up, but he's our f*ck-up. Keep your hands off, Dallas.

Why am I not surprised?

Just because charges were dropped doesn't mean that Henry isn't a low-ife thug.

Didn't the local warden, Marvin Lewis, say just the other week that Chris Henry would not be a Bengal again?

I guess I should have clarified...how soon after he serves his current suspension before he's back on suspension again?

Default Agent says Bengals close to signing WR Henry

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Cincinnati Bengals are close to signing Chris Henry, four months after they released the wide receiver following his fifth arrest since 2005, Henry's agent said Monday.

The Bengals suddenly have a need for experienced receivers with Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh slowed by injuries. Cincinnati began showing interest in Henry last month when an assault charge stemming from an incident March 31 was dropped, agent Marvin Frazier said. A deal could be completed by Tuesday, he added.
Expected back for Week 1

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason, but coach Marvin Lewis said he should be back in time for the regular season opener. More ...

"We're in talks and we're real close," Frazier said. "I'm just glad they're willing to let the past be the past and give him a chance. I just hope that the Cincinnati fans will give him the same type of chance."

A telephone message left by The Associated Press for a Bengals spokesman Monday night was not immediately returned.

Henry still must serve a four-game suspension imposed by the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Henry was suspended for the first eight games last season, also for violating the league's conduct policies. He played in the last eight games, but had only 21 catches for 343 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the No. 3 receiver.

The Bengals released him in April after he was accused of punching a University of Cincinnati student and breaking his car window with a beer bottle.

The jury couldn't reach a verdict on an assault charge, resulting in a mistrial. Prosecutors decided to drop the case after a judge ruled against them on several motions just before the retrial was scheduled to start in July.

When asked last month about the possibility of Henry rejoining the Bengals, coach Marvin Lewis said he wasn't interested.

"I don't think it would be productive for our football team," he said. "There's responsibilities to being an NFL player. It's a privilege, it's not a right."

Johnson sprained his left shoulder Sunday night in a 27-10 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions. Pro Bowl receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh has been sidelined with hamstring injuries in recent weeks.

The Bengals drafted three receivers in April as they look toward overhauling their receiving corps. Second-round pick Jerome Simpson had a team-high 114 yards on five catches against the Lions' backups on Sunday, and third-round pick Andre Caldwell had a pair of catches for 11 yards. But the Bengals may not want to rush them in their rookie years.

Frazier said the recent injuries to Johnson and Houshmandzadeh were likely a factor in the renewed interest in Henry.

"I think that's one of the reasons," he said. "But also, the boy can play."

Uncle Marv talking out of both sides of his mouth again. Should anyone be surprised?

The moral of the story? You can be a complete waste of a human being and still be able to make millions of dollars if you have any kind of talent.

What a complete joke the Bungles franchise is. They are the only team in the NFL who would even think of bringing this guy back. Character does not matter to them one iota if "the boy can play."

Anything to win, right Bungles fans?
