His eight-year NFL career has included a chronically bad back, several bad relationships and, some former head coaches might suggest, a bad attitude. So when Daryl Gardener is officially released by the Denver Broncos this week, ending his short tenure with a third team in three seasons, it will represent the continuation of his bad streak, right? Per the arrangement with the Broncos and head coach Mike Shanahan, with whom he battled last year in a public display of soiled laundry that led to Gardener's suspension, the defensive tackle will be quickly released. And then he will sign a four-year contract, worth roughly $9.3 million, with the Bengals.There he will be reunited with head coach Marvin Lewis, who as defensive coordinator at Washington in 2002, coaxed a Pro Bowl-caliber performance out of Gardener that year. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/columns/story?columnist=pasquarelli_len&id=1760925

Yeah, I saw that at NFL.com. They're also talking about Vinny going to the cowpukes.

was trotter really that bad? was he overpaid or something? I don't get it... I thought it would be a good thing to keep him around so that there could be some already established chemistry for the linebackers but I guess I was wrong. Was it because he stopped making it to pro bowls? It's not like Michael Barrow is going to any any time soon :rolleyes:
