Bengals News: Jonah Williams trade, Foster Moreau, and more
In Bengals news, Ian Rapoport reported that there have been "trade conversations centered around LT Jonah Williams". Also in Bengals news, free-agent target Foster Moreau is stepping away from football.
Williams requested a trade from the team that spent a first-round pick on him four years ago after Orlando Brown was signed to a four-year deal. The plan was to start Brown at left tackle and move Williams to right tackle but Williams obviously didn't like that plan. He's always made it clear that he wants to play left tackle so now he wants out.
The Bengals had had former Raiders tight end Foster Moreau in for a visit last week and he then went to visit with the Saints. That visit appeared to be life-changing, as he announced that he had Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Prayers up for Foster Moreau as he -- in his words -- fights a new opponent.
