    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.

    Hey, maybe we can pick this guy up? His upside would be worth the risk!

    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 :stirpot: or :sarcasm: 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

    If true - Wow. It's been 2 years. Whats an extra two weeks? Then again sometimes a little more is simply too much.
