Shaun Alexander to Bengals?

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Could be. It's the franchise to his hometown of Florence, Ky. Here's the report from Mark Curnutte of the Cincinnati Enquirer. Here's a link to the story right here.

The Seahawks released Alexander before the draft. Jim Steiner, Alexander's agent, indicated in an e-mail to the Enquirer the Bengals were one of the teams he was interested in. Here's the excerpt:

"Making calls to teams. Bengals are on our list!" Jim Steiner, Alexander's agent, told The Enquirer in an e-mail this morning.

I would like him in the AFC....I still think he as a little in the tank left and would hate to seem him have great year against Seattle!

Who cares what "he" is interested in. The question is who might be interested in him? None at his $ rate and few even at a big discount.

Seattle opted to take the full cap hit on Alexander this year. His cap number in 2008 will be $6.9M, but he will be off the books in 2009 and beyond.

Mac - I'm wondering how you know that? Not that I don't believe you - just interested.

I like that they took the hit this year. Seems like letting him go was only a couple M difference (minus the salary of the player taking his roster spot).

Go Ruskell!

The decision to not designate Alexander as a post-June 1st cut was reported in last Wednesday's edition of the other daily newspaper in Seattle.
