We had 8 million a year for Jenkins but couldn't keep Bell? WTF?

I think Bell was ***** footing and we decided to move on Jenkins while we had the chance. Kind of like Ingram last year. Look how long he took to sign. His original price tag was most likely too high.

We offered Bell $7.5 mil/year but he and his agent werenít interested thinking they could get more on the open market. They were wrong.

Re: Bengals sign Vonn Bell

FWIW, Jenkins is much better in coverage vs Bell. Is anyone besides me tired of those late game blunders & miscues from our secondary? Tired of not being able to close? Malcolm will correct a lot of that with his leadership. 2 rings, solid locker room guy and can make plays.

Good luck to Bell in Cincy though.

Win NOW folks. Win now.

Let's recap ...

So the Saints offered a solid contract to Vonn, he or his agent dragged their feet or whatever. Ended up getting less money to play for that team? A perennial dumpster fire organization?

He bet on himself and lost.
