    Linebacker Rashad Jeanty may sign with Dolphins as soon as today

    You may remember that Jeanty played for the Bengals up until 2009 when he broke his leg in the playoff game against the Jets. You might also remember the Dolphins were interested in signing him last offseason but after meeting with him told him the injury was more severe than he and the Bengals thought and that he would need surgery to fix things. The Bengals medical staff screwed things up so much for him that after re-signing with the Bengals he had to miss the entire 2010 season. He did end up having the surgery the Dolphins told him to get, and now the Dolphins are interested again. He would be outside linebacker depth and a special teams player.

    Agent David Canter says on Armando and the Amigo that client LB Rashad Jenty worked out for Fins Mon. And hopes to get an offer today.

    Bengals criticized for medical handling of Rashad Jeanty

    One day after the team had to admit a very expensive mistake with Antonio Bryant, the agent for deposed linebacker Rashad Jeanty sharply criticized how the team handled his client this offseason.
    Jeanty fractured his fibula in the playoffs last year, and the team initially told him he didnít need surgery. When Jeanty visited Miami as a restricted free agent, the Dolphins told him he would need major surgery on his ankle to stabilize his leg, according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
    The Dolphins lost interest, and Jeanty underwent the surgery shortly thereafter. On Monday, the Bengals waived Jeanty for failing a physical.
    ďItís tremendously disappointing on the way this has been handled,Ē
    his agent David Canter told Reedy. ďWe donít see how the Cincinnati Bengals can do this
    without any inclination that this was even a possibility.
    ďItís a tad
    shocking how he was released and was done in a disheartening, callous
    and unfair manner. The only reason why he isnít healthy and wasnít able
    to pass the physical is because they failed to fully diagnose and
    mistreated the injury.Ē
    Jeanty was regarded as a leader in the locker room and had won the teamís Ed Block Courage award in 2008. He was widely expected to be placed on the PUP list.
    Perhaps the Bengals were trying to get back some of the money they wasted in the Bryant fiasco. Then again, there could be a lawsuit for medical malpractice in their future.

    So let me get this straight: The guy's an outside linebacker and he's yet to even record a single sack in the league. Sounds very promising

    Now that the season is officially over, what's the rule on signing players that have been waived? Do they have to wait until the new CBA is in place?

    I think this is good if hes healthy. I really do not like our depth @ OLB, Mosses isnt any good and behind Francis there is no 1 worth it. I kinda regret cutting Walden he was a ST ace.

    He would be more of a special teams player and depth at linebacker. We do need help on special teams and if he can get back to his old form(big if), he should be of some value.

    Doesn't hurt to bring in some depth at OLB . . . what do we have? Moses and Ike? Jeanty also contributes on special teams . . . bring him in.
