Wow.....that is all I can say to describe my feelings of this offseason. Just when you think there isn't possibly anything else the Bengals can do to improve their team they go out and make you wonder where in the HELL this type of aggressiveness has been the past several years?
Today the Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy reports that the Bengals have traded DT Orien Harris to the Rams for FB Brian Leonard.
Though this trade probably doesn't excite you as much as it does me, I think this is a VERY good trade. We are giving up a waiver-wire player in Orien Harris for a multiple threat FB in Brian Leonard, a position of need for this team.
Honestly, what were the expectations for Harris anyway? There is no way he was ever going to see the field with Pat Sims, Tank Johnson and Domata Peko...and hell, good for him, he gets to play for a team that actually can use him.
Congratulations to Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis for pulling off this trade, it is a rare win-win trade for both guys. You know Jeremi Johnson is running on the treadmill right now.
