Adam Jones: "I'll be ready for the opener"; CB Morgan Trent waived?

If Pacman speaketh the truth about his return, that’s very good news for the Bengals.

When Adam Jones was arrested on July 10, that was very bad news. Not only did Jones get in trouble with the law again – contributing to the Bengals “trifecta” of arrests in a week – but a video report revealed that Jones still had a neckbrace on. Later, we learned that Jones had a second surgery on his neck, and might miss a few weeks in the regular season.

Now, Jones claims that he can’t practice for 2-3 weeks with his neck still healing. More importantly, he will be ready for the season opener. That really takes the pressure of the Bengals to sign a Free Agent Cornerback.

Morgan Trent Mix-up: Bengals.com’s Geoff Hobson orginally revealed that Cornerback Morgan Trent was waived. Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer also reported this, saying he failed his physical.

Now, the Bengals have “rescinded” the waiving of Trent. Apparently the Bengals organization isn’t communicating well. Huh. That’s weird. Officially it was a media release goof. Had something to do with re-structuring his contract due to his surgically repaired knee.
