ESPN is reporting here that the Washington Redskins offered the Bengals what effectively would have been a 1st round pick this year and a 1st round pick next year. All this in exchange for grumpy, outspoken Chad Johnson. The Bengals refused the offer and informed other NFC East teams that Johnson is not on the trading block. It’s probably for the best. Two 1st round picks is too much to give for an aging disgruntled star who’d no doubt want to get a giant new contract to go along with his new team.
This officially puts to rest DW’s Pipe Dream of getting Chad Johnson for a 2nd rounder. No, I don’t know what he was thinking either.
