Cincy No Go for T.O., Sign Antonio Bryant Instead

Mar 10, 2010

Chad Johnson doesn’t have much pull after all. Despite lobbying for the Bengals to sign T.O., they opted for Antonio Bryant instead. He’s a much younger option than T.O., but I’m not sure it’s a deal I would have done. Bryant got a four-year, $28 million deal. He’s had a couple of nice years, but for the most part has been underwhelming.

His fantasy value increases though. Carson Palmer is a major upgrade for Bryant. Assuming he’s healthy, he should be a nice #3 or #4 WR. I’m expecting around 1000 yards and 5-7 TDs.

    Bryant is 29 and T.O. is 36, 37. Not surprised but a bit concerned about his health due to knee injuries. Also brings about the case of what the Bengals will do about the O line since it took a chuck of change to get Bryant to Cincy.
