Taylor Mays traded to the Bengals

lol. how the f**k do they not think Mays is worth more than a 7th round pick? Why not just keep him? Was he making that much?

Wow. And a 7th round pick in 2013. I know something is better than nothing but SERIOUSLY? I deplored the pick, but can't believe he was worth this little.

Which report on the pick value is true? So far I've read the value could be as high as a 3rd if conditions are met. Or a 5th. Or a 6th... What a horrific waste of a 2nd rounder. Good God, this makes me sick.

a 7th round pick is lame.

then again, Shaun Hill got us a 7th round pick that Baalke turned into Daniel Kilgore. So a little something is better than nothing, but its hard to believe that they couldn't have handled this better.

Great job Baalke.
Baalke is a freaking idiot, this guy is starting to bug the f*&$k outta me. Taylor Mays was worth well more than a 7th round pick, we should've just kept him you F***kin Moron!!!

A 7th round pick two years from now is the lowest it's even possible to pay for a player. There is no lower price the Bengals could possibly have paid.

I guess this is why teams don't email the entire league when they want to trade someone.....

And don't tell me, "well maybe we wouldn't have even gotten that 2013 7th round pick if they didn't send the email," because that's BS and you know it.

You don't start a negotiation by telling everyone how desperate you are to make the deal. Not in football. Not anywhere.

Nice job, Baalke.
Little do you guys know that Harbaugh knows Andrew Luck will use his last year of college eligibility and enter the 2013 draft. He also has an agreement with Andrew (first name basis) to shatter his throwing arm in 5 places in order to drop to the Niners in round 7.

Will be the best draft pick of all time, just you wait.

News out of Cincy is that the Bengals only had to give up a No. 7 pick in 2013 for Taylor Mays, a second-round pick last year. Wow


WHAT!!!
Think about it though. When the bar is set THAT low, you'll take any better offer . That means no better offers were on the table. That shows how much people actually wanted the kid.

It sounds like Baalke had a personal vendetta against him because he was b***h slapped by Sing into picking him.

I thought at least a 4th or 5th round pick
Reggie Smith, Madeiu, Goldson, Spillman, Maragos, Whitner are all better than Taylor Mays.


Which means he would have gotten cut, either tomorrow, or before 53.


When a player gets cut, you don't get any compensation.


Which also means, we got a 7th round pick two years from now, instead of absolutely nothing.

Is it embarrassing we just gave up our 2nd rounder last year for a future 7th rounder? Kind of, but if we're winning games/ and or get a decent player with that pick, who cares? We were cutting him anyway.
