Kinda sucks to come back with your tail between your legs, don't it CJ?

..."Am I coming back? Of course I am," Johnson said in an interview with ESPN. "I told my coaches I'm going to California to act, but the truth is I may come back to the Bengals as early as June. I may be crazy but I'm not stupid."....

Johnson is under contract with Cincinnati through the 2011 season.

I knew he'd blink first. Dude never had any leverage to be taken seriously with his demands to be traded.

They still should've taken the Redskins deal. Well, I would have.

He has been the highest paid WR the last two years, and now he wants to rework? Yeah, like thats gonna happen.

He could still ultimately be moved, but with his act and his ridiculous and unfounded unhappiness with his current deal, he is pretty much unable to be traded irregardless of how much of a distraction he is or if he takes any more shots at his QB Carson Palmer. You don't throw the franchise QB under the bus in the media...especially when he is really good.

he doesnt realize how good he has it in Cincinnati with Palmer throwing to him. Palmer's skill got him that deal. He needs to grow up and is probably my least favorite player in the league. the HOF jacket pretty much lost all good will with me. Oh and the fact that he pretty much disappeared for the majority of the season didn't help him any either. overrated and purely a product of self hype and ESPN's tabloid addiction.

If only there was some way to get him to Dallas.....then the three ring circus would be complete.

I don't see Jerrah doing that. They have a need at WR but not a guy like CJ. I expect they will browse the cap casualty harvest during Training Camp and focus their pre-TC work on bringing Jason Taylor to Dallas. It's pretty much going to happen...no-brainer. Jerrah will give Bill a 3rd and a 6th that could mature into a 2nd and 5th if Dallas goes to or wins Super Bowl. Oh and this deal would only be made if Taylor let Jones know that he was going to play in 08 and 09. a guy who is only going to play one year is only worth a 4th at best....

I wish the Texans would get involved in the JT sweepstakes, but it looks to be only true contenders due to JT wanting to win in 08. As long as he stays out of our division (especially Indy) I will be just fine.

That idea gives me nightmares.

At first glance i thought it was mildly entertaining with CJ. Now...well he knew what he was getting into when he signed that deal.

What a dork. How are you going to bluff when you have everything to lose.

Kudos to Marvin Lewis for calling him out.
