Once you get past the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bags, superhero conversations and all the other silliness that comes with Mays, an inconvenient truth arises. Mays’ disappointing NFL career is in it’s last stand in Cincinnati tonight as the Bengals face the Colts in the preseason finale.
The Bengals used a third-round pick in this year’s draft on Georgia’s Shawn Williams and a fifth-round pick last year on George Iloka. Mays has done little to convince the Bengals he deserves playing time over either player, and his walking papers may already be written up. A bad showing tomorrow night in the team’s preseason finale could lead the turk to sign, seal, and deliver those papers to Mays.
