    Reedy is basically saying they got the same offer as Cleveland.

    My prediction if there isn't a wage scale is Green misses a minimum of 2 games because he doesn't have a contract.

So it might not have been the easiest thing for them to do to trade down, and get someone they really value. I do believe they made the right choice this time.
    They supposedly are in love with Dalton or at least Gruden is. Most teams will move back.

    He said nothing like that.

    Yeah he did. He said the offer was 1756 points. The scale says the Gals pick was valued at 1800 and Clevelands was 1600. He didn't come out and say it word for word but he figured people could read between the lines.

    Uh Oh HT; From cbssports.com

    19 minutes ago - Marvin Lewis said the Falcons offered the Bengals the same deal at No. 4 that the Browns accepted at No. 6. Lewis thought the trade of five picks to move back into their No. 27 spot was undervalued. Bengals RapidReports

    Ok you can complain now if you want but I was just saying you didn't know before. According to Reedy it was undervalued.

    I was complaining when Cleveland took it. According to a scale that I'm not sure if they know how to use it was under valued. I still say they didn't have to stay at 27. 5 picks and saving a ton of money isn't a bad idea.

    You all are too worried about a trade that didn't happen.

    Marvin Lewis just told @Jay_Glazer they are trying to find a way to get back "into it".

    3 trades that didn't happen since the Ricky Williams/Akili Smith debacle.

    Cleveland knew the rule that they were allowed trying to come back up from the 27th pick.
