    Wow. Good for them, and for Ragone. That was quick :shocked. The Bengals obviously wanted him really bad. He will make the team and after losing Jon Kitna he could become a #2 QB for them over Anthony Wright (he is definately on the downfall, but with his experience I wouldn't be suprised if he did stay at #2 and Ragone is #3). If Carson's not ready for the beginning of the year I imagine he might get some time if Wright performs bad.

    The waiver claim shows there was some value there (as opposed to clearing waivers).

    I'm sure he's ecstatic. He's basically going home....from OH and played just across the river .. plus he could see some legit playing time while CP is on the mend. Their backup QBs are nothing to brag about.

    The Colts also put in a waiver claim on Dave, but the Bengals had a worse record, so that's where he was sent. Seems to have been some value there.

    The people in Cincinnati saw Rags play all through college, so I think he'll be well received (pun intended). He was an excellent college player, and his NFLe experience couldn't hurt.

    I wish him the best of luck; he was drafted into a bad situation here - bad in that it would have taken a miracle for him to get any significant playing time.

    At backup WR or on the PSquad as a WR.

    I was hoping the Texans would have ended up with Reggie. Let him do some "Slash" kinda stuff and be the #3 guy.

    Yup, just another item that proves how bad the coaching was last year.

    There is absolutely no reason that Ragone didn't come in for Carr against San Fran. None.:fireball:

    By that time of the year, his arm was weaker than mine. QB's that only play the regular season have very tired arms by week 17, and Ragone had to play in NFLe as well as play in practice. That is the only explanation I would have.

    Does anyone else think Ragone might have wanted to be waived so that he could compete for at least #2 on a depth chart? He was buried by the previous staff and the signing of Sage may have been the writing on the wall from this regime.
