This just in, the Bengals got their first draft pick of the 2008 season 6 days early. The NFL reinstated suspended LB Odell Thurman from his two year absence. With the way Odell played in his rookie year, getting him back after two years is like getting a defensive first round LB this year. As long as he can play back to his rookie year performance, our LB corps, and run defense just got better. It’s about time some good news has come up in the past week or two for Cincinnati. Odom, Utecht, Blackstock, Thurman should all have immediate impact (Blackstock will add great LB depth and special teams immediate help).
