The Cincinnati Bengals are no strangers to player/team disputes. Both major and minor, the Bengals have had their share. After consecutive drafts, 2008 and 2009, the top picks, Keith Rivers and Andre Smith respectively, held out for better contracts. Smith’s lasted a month and he missed three preseason games. They have also had plenty of players demanding trades. Corey Dillon worked his way out of town after complaining about playing time. Chad Ochocinco (then Johnson) also made some comments about being traded after feeling disrespected by team management. Most notoriously, Carson Palmer threatened to retire if he wasn’t traded by Mike Brown. This led to a protracted stand-off, ending when the Oakland Raiders stepped in with a trade offer agreeable to Brown.
