Bengals Close To Signing Adam Jones; Gibril Wilson

Looks like the Bengals are adding some more guns to the defense, figuratively speaking.

Joe Reedy tweets that the team is hammering out the final details on a deal with Adam “Pac-man” Jones, and Hobson says they are equally close on a deal with Safety Gibril Wilson.

Both players would add depth and experience to an already deep and experienced secondary.  Jones will immediately vie for nickel back, and Wilson will provide competition at safety, and insurance should starters Chris Crocker and Roy Williams continue to face injuries.

Jones will also likely contend for the starting punt returner job, something I mentioned would be beneficial in the event that Quan Cosby can’t survive the WR scrum.

Both Mike Zimmer and Tank Johnson sure sound like Pac-man is a done deal. Tank went so far as to say, “I think Dallas was too much glitz, too much of a wild situation to go into, but this is definitely a more tame situation.”

Editor’s note: Naysayers be damned!  This is all good news.  The Bengals have taken a division championship team and done nothing but strengthen it through veteran acquisitions and solid draft picks.  I have nothing negative to say.  Kudos to Brown & Lewis for continuing to look for players to help win a super boal.

Despite this, the team has the THIRD best odds of winning the AFC North in 2010, behind Baltimore and Pittsburgh.  No respect!
