Fox Sports put up a great article on Bengals owner Mike Brown related to the current CBA issues. In the article they touch on the Browns reputation of being cheap and how his reputation from others has been altered after he was able to get the owners to opt out of the CBA early. And even explaining how Mike Brown’s Bengals are actually leaving less cap room then most would expect.
Unlike many of his free-spending peers, Brown and the Bengals don’t believe in investing future money. The collective mindset of the Bengals is to prefer a “pay as you go” philosophy, one that attempts to avoid so-called “dead money.” It might surprise a lot of people, but Cincinnati often comes closer to the cap, in terms of actual payroll, than some franchises with higher cap numbers.
