    Trade for Levi Jones?

    Levi Jones said Tuesday that he's unhappy with his reduced role and would not have signed a long-term contract extension with the Bengals had he known it was coming.
    Jones has lost his starting spot to Andrew Whitworth and saw extensive action Sunday only because Stacy Andrews exited with a shoulder injury. "I was obviously signed here to do a job and I'm ... you know what I'm saying, what I'm doing now is not what I was signed to be here for," Jones said. Jones was slow to recover from knee surgery and could get his gig back when healthy.

    I would love this move, we need a big tackle, Jones is probowl caliber.

    Bengals is desperate at secondary, and they just lost Rudy Williams to injury and also backup Kenny Irons, they picked up DeDe Dorsey but really, couldnt we send Mewelde Moore and maybe Mike Doos or Tank Williams and a 2nd day pick for Levi Jones. That would rock imo.

    Paul Allen brought it up the other day on KFAN and it got my attention.

    I would love to see a deal go down, but this does seem too smart for us at the moment. We can always hope though!

    Re: Trade for Levi Jones?

    I was thinking of Levi Brown of the cardinals when I read this lol.

    But yeah, thats not a bad idea at all.

    anyone who "threw him(Joey Porter) like a ragdoll" across a casino he's good in my book
    ;D

    He's 28 years old, and a very good player, I say we pull the trigger on this, I see no downside at all.

    Re: Trade for Levi Jones?

    Just curious if he has ever played right tackle?
    Of course he can't be any worse than a converted center playing RT :

    Or he slept in a Holiday Inn last night..... ;D



    But I like the idea also.
    wonder if the front office is even considering anything right now, as far as player deals? :

    Silly man.
    You know that only the Chiller makes decisions, and we all know how hard headed and stubborn he is.
    His ego is so big it won't let him bring in anybody but old washed up eagles.

    Re: Trade for Levi Jones?

    IMO this would be a better idea than the trade for Fitzgerald (SP?) Don't get me wrong it would great to have a receiver like Fitz in Minny, but I think at this point, if we can get a OL in who can give our QB's some more time to drop back and then actually step into a throw, it would be well worth it. I look at Rice as being a dominant receiver in this league in the near future, T-will has shown signs of improvement, Wade will be ok, Allison should be good, if we can get a QB some time to throw the ball, I think we will see some improvement.

    This is true Marr, but let us just hope that maybe Chili is getting presured by some higher up's in the office, to make some changes during the season...



    This is one scenerio I would welcome.......
