And the roadshow has been told to take his show on the road; Link:

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had reinstated Thurman on April 21.

After Goodell's decision last month, Lewis spoke about what the future may hold for Thurman...

Hopefully he can get his stuff together. I thought he was a decent ball player.

I'd be curious to see if he cleans his act up once he's away from that environment.

I remember him as a solid player in college and a tackling machine in the pros. Sad how it's played out though. Hopefully he'll get the guidance he needs elsewhere.

Wow. You've got to be a liability if the Bengals are willing to cut you due to character issues. With their LB corp as weak as it is I fully expected them to keep Thurman.

I can't see the Texans picking up a player who has missed the last two seasons because of the substance abuse, JMO.

Maybe I should have added or at the end of my post....

I'll try to make my sarcasm more plain next time. Promise.

And the story continues; Link:

Thurman's rep: Release by Bengals came after dispute over family issue

Quote:
The Cincinnati Bengals released middle linebacker Odell Thurman on Monday and, according to one of his representatives, the move was due to a dispute over the amount of time Thurman was away from the team dealing with a family matter.

Thurman, reinstated by the NFL on April 21, already was on a short leash with the Bengals after missing the past two seasons for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He missed the past several weeks of organized team activities to be with his ailing grandmother, who recently died, according to his representative, Safarrah Lawson.

The funeral for Thurman's grandmother was on May 12 and the Bengals wanted him to rejoin the team for workouts soon after, Lawson said. But Thurman remained with his family in Georgia through Monday, at which time the team informed him he was no longer a Bengal.
If true - Wow. It's been 2 years. Whats an extra two weeks? Then again sometimes a little more is simply too much.
