I wouldn't look to the Bengals as an example of a team that isn't penny pinching just because they signed Manning. They're $27 million under the cap (http://www.cincyjungle.com/2014/3/10...014-salary-cap
) and have always been known as one of the most penny-pinching franchises in the league. When Joseph signed here he even said they have vending machines in the locker room instead of providing free Gatorade to the players.
