Chad Johnson's been pretty vocal about wanting to be traded from the Bengals. And the Redskins look like they're interested and made a pretty good offer for him.

Instead, the Bengals shot the offer down and would rather just let him sit.


    How serious are the Cincinnati Bengals about not giving in to Chad Johnson's trade demands?

    Serious enough to swat away an offer from the Washington Redskins that could have netted the Bengals two first-round draft picks, team and league sources said.

    The Redskins offered its first-round pick, No. 21 overall, and a conditional third-rounder in 2009 that could escalate to a first rounder if Johnson and the Redskins hit certain performance levels, the sources said.

    It was not the first time the Redskins approached the Bengals about a deal, but it was the first significant proposal.

    Bengals coach Marvin Lewis -- who disputed the report of trade offers for Johnson -- says the disgruntled receiver should keep his word and sit out the season.

    "I've stated our case with Chad," Lewis said. "He has a contract through 2011. He's stated without an opportunity to go to a different team and a new contract, he wasn't going to play. I think he's a man of his word and says he's not going to play, so don't play."


Call me weird, but turning down a trade offer like this that could potentially help your team RIGHT NOW in favor of teaching a malcontent WR a lesson is the kind of ass-backwards thinking I'd expect from the Raiders.

Refusing a trade like this comes off a lot like the Bengals cutting off their nose to spite their face.

I think the Bengals right now are looking at how many guys have threatened to sit, and how many actually follow through, and acting accordingly. Now if a week before the season starts Johnson is nowhere to be found, they might be more likely to deal. But until he actually misses some important time, I can't blame them for assuming this is just the usual bluster from players.

I guess Marvin Lewis has been reading his Kipling (poetryloverspage.com) and doesn't want to encourage any other malcontents.

That's an awfully nice deal to turn down, but it would be nice to see a team stick to it's guns and just make the guy sit.
