The way Mike Brown runs the team Cincinnati can't afford premium free agents and doesn't want to make trades that add salary.

So the team goes 'dumpster' diving in the offseason for players like Benson and Pacman Jones that are discounted price-wise because of previous suspensions or other bad behavior.

In Washington we saw the Nationals baseball team do the same thing for 5 years under Jim Bowden. Dmitri Young, Elijah Dukes, Paul LoDuca, etc.

A rogue's gallery of players that were out in the wilderness after one transgression or another.

It's fine to add ONE player that has talent who faces some challenges, but you need a strong locker room to keep control from within.

The Bengals don't have that.
