Lewis: No to Henry Return


Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis and owner Mike Brown both shot down the idea of pursuing former Bengals wideout Chris Henry if he is reinstated by the NFL.

"“It’s not productive for our football team,” Lewis said when he met the media before the annual training camp luncheon at Paul Brown Stadium. “You have to be a productive part to be a NFL player.There is a responsibility to be a NFL player. It’s a privilege, not a right.”Bengals president Mike Brown, in his only scheduled media appearance of the season, said he hopes the club has turned the corner on the character issue.“We don’t want that kind of behavior. We’re trying to be more concientous of guys we bring in,” Brown said. “We’re trying to go forward with guys who are relaible and guys who are not only good players, but good citizens.”"

Good for them. The idea of bringing Henry back was stupid when first floated last week and it’s still dumb now. Stripe Hype continues to wish Chris the best of luck…just someplace else.
