Harris contract voided

Posted by bengalsweb on January 11, 2011 – 12:39 pm


Safety Cary Harris, signed to the Bengals offseason roster on Jan. 3, has become a free agent. Harris’s contract was voided by the NFL for procedural reasons, and the Bengals are not pursuing a re-signing at this time. A second-year NFL player, Harris was signed to the Bengals practice squad for the last three games of 2010.

    Is this common amongst all teams in the NFL? I mean having occasional contracts voided by the NFL for “procedural” reasons. I just wonder because we seem to have this happen from time to time. Hard to tell if other teams have this problem too, as this type of info doesn’t usually make the press.

    Good article on Gresham Hobs! You know all those years of passing up TEs in the draft worked out for us in the end. A lot of good (and bad) TEs went by us to other teams over the years. But I believe that in Gresham we have one of the truly special players in the league.

    Would not surprise me a bit if he’s the top TE in the league in a couple years. He just has all the skills you want in a TE. By the time he develops fully, he will be as good a blocker as you see at TE. Plus he has the ability to be a possession receiver like Gonzalez. But he also has the speed to be a vertical threat. But as well has a unique agility and athleticism for a guy at 260+ lbs.

    Basically he can run over you, around you or by you. Plus knock you on your butt when blocking. He’s definitely going to become a matchup problem down the line. LBs will be way too slow, and sometimes to small as well. Ss will not have the girth to contain him. And he’s just too big to even think about putting a CB on him, like teams do with guys like Dallas Clark sometimes.

    I check dailey to see if Brats been fired yet.
    Plan on canceling my four season tickets if he isn’t gone by the due date. Whats the latest?

    You know it’s looking like we are going to get a good player at #4. This is a good year at the top of the draft to get a DE or DT. CB and S are as solid. Or we could take the first Olineman off the boards. Right now Oline is a big stretch at #4.

    You got that right mwindle1973, Oline is a real big stretch at #4…given that we are already dealing with one “premadonna” Olineman in Andre Smith. Lets get a couple kids looking to prove themselves, maybe that will also motivate Andre to either elevate his game and conditioning or move out of the way. Because Andre being serviceable for only a couple games last year and this year is a total BIG JOKE.

    Draft my take, if they are available at 4:
    If Ocho and Joseph stay it’s Peterson
    If Ocho goes and Joseph stays, it Green
    If Joseph goes and Ocho stays, it’s Peterson
    If both Ocho and Joseph go, it’s Peterson

    Yeah Andre has to be put as option B right now for next season’s RT. But too much money and talent at stake here. If he comes in overweight again it’s going to be bad for his career. It could essentially be over. The last thing his knees and feet need are him trying to overcompensate for a 360-380 lb frame. If he can actally come in at the 350 lbs they want him at, then he could have a breakout year. Cause once this guy got in shape he was looking good. I hope that the team, Andre & his handlers realize this, and are able to correct it before it’s too late.
