Report: No trade


March 3, 2008

Updated: 6 p.m.

The Bengals apparently broke off trade talks with the Jets for defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson Monday afternoon and they have moved into negotiations with free-agent defensive end Antwan Odom.

FoxSports.com is reporting there won't be a trade. According to published reports, the Bengals and New York had a deal in place pending Cincinnati working out a new contract with Robertson based on money and a physical.

It was another close call for the Bengals two days after the NFL voided their trade with the Lions for defensive tackle Shan Rogers because of a technicality in roster bonus language and left them still trying to shore up a front four bracing for games against six of the NFL's top 10 rushing teams from last season.

The defensive tackle market has been pretty much plucked clean with the Jaguars trading Marcus Stroud to the Bills, and the Packers and Lions shipping Corey Williams and Rogers, respectively to the Browns.

With Odom and his eight sacks in town in a visit confirmed by the team, the Bengals moved on with life after Justin Smith since their starting right end for the past 107 games signed with San Francisco over the weekend. The 6-5, 274-pound Odom knocked down seven passes in his first season as a starter this past year and would give the Bengals another lean and athletic pass-rushing threat opposite left end Robert Geathers.

Odom, a second-round pick out of Alabama in 2004, formed one of the NFL's more potent sack duos with Kyle Vanden Bosch's dozen sacks in a year the Bengals finished last in the NFL in sacks per pass.

Odom is due in Phoenix Tuesday to visit the Cardinals, but nothing is scheduled beyond that. After missing out on Smith to the 49ers, the Vikings could be next.

The Bengals also confirmed a Monday visit by Marlon McCree, another Kentucky product and a free safety last with San Diego.

The Bengals have reportedly agreed to terms with DE Antwan Odom.

They never let him out of the building. If the report is true, Odom will have chosen Cincinnati over the Vikings and Cards, though he never wound up visiting either. The Bengals' recent moves (also trying to deal for Dewayne Robertson) indicate they're not necessarily sold on using a 3-4 in 2008.
