Сообщение As the Raiders try to figure out what to do with Antonio Bro 
White Eric Rowe Jerseys , the player seems to be walking right into the team’s nuclear option.The Raiders eventually may be able to put Brown on the reserve/left squad list, if he leaves the team and refuses return after receiving the so-called “five-day letter.” If that happens, Brown gets shut down for the season, and he can’t go play for another team.From the moment the latest string of events began to unfold between Brown and the Raiders, plenty of people were musing about the possibility of Brown inevitably landing with the Patriots. And the Raiders surely don’t want to give Brown a one-way ticket to New England.At this point, however, it’s unlikely that anyone would want Brown. There’s way too much to unpack, way too much due dilgence to be done Eric Rowe Jerseys 2019 , to find a way to plug Brown into a new team on the fly. And even if a team decides to roll the dice, they’ll be spending time watching the dice roll and roll and roll via Brown’s various social-media channels and personal interactions with teammates, coaches, and executives when they should be instead focusing on one opponent after another.Talent is seductive; it’s completely blinded Jon Gruden. But at some point no amount of talent is worth it. Brown has reached that point.So maybe the Raiders need not worry about engineering the ability to place Brown on the reserve/left squad list. Maybe they should just cut him — and let him go rip apart another franchise the way he’s ripped apart the Steelers and now the Raiders, if someone else is going to be sufficiently seduced by Brown’s talent to overlook the very, very bad that comes with the very, very good. CINCINNATI (AP)Stringing two first downs together in a drive has never been more of a challenge for the Bengals, who head into the final stretch of the season trying to stay in contention despite an offense that ranks among the worst in franchise history. They’re having a really hard time simply staying on the field. The Bengals (4-6) rank last in the league in total yards and total plays. They’re second-worst in time of possession White LaAdrian Waddle Jerseys , holding the ball for only 26 minutes, 45 seconds per game. And there’s been no indication of improvement heading into a home game against the Browns (0-10) on Sunday. All it takes is one bad play and they’re looking at another three-and-out. ”I’d say when you’re a good team and you kind of have the momentum, you can take a negative play and say, `No problem, we’ll get it on second and third down,”’ offensive coordinator Bill Lazor said. ”And when you’re in one of those ruts, it’s like, `Oh gosh.’ Then all of a sudden you take a negative and you think LaAdrian Waddle Jerseys 2019 , `We’re dead.”’ Cincinnati is in a deep rut when it comes to moving the ball. In the past three games, the Jaguars and Titans each held the ball for more than 40 minutes and the Broncos had it for 35. Cincinnati had the ball for 33 possessions in those games – not counting kneel-downs – and failed to get a first down 10 times. They managed to string together a pair of first downs only 27 percent of the time. The result is a glaring imbalance. The Bengals have run only 524 plays this season, which are by far the fewest in the NFL; the Jets are second-worst at 566. They’re on pace to set a club record for fewest plays in a 16-game, non-strike season. The offensive line’s struggles are the key component. Andy Dalton has been under pressure all season, and the running backs have few holes. During a 23-7 loss at Jacksonville on Nov. 5, the Bengals had only seven plays that gained yards in the second half and seven that lost yards. During a 20-17 win at Denver on Sunday, they ran for only 49 yards combined and had six running plays that lost yards. Rookie Joe Mixon carried 20 times for 49 yards at Denver, an average of 2.5 per carry. He’s often been either hit in the backfield or had to change course to avoid a tackler. ”As a runner White David Andrews Jerseys , you just can’t be frustrated,” coach Marvin Lewis said. ”You can’t let the last play, positively or negatively, affect the next one. You’ve got to make the most of it, that’s all.” The Bengals are on pace to run the fewest plays, have the worst time of possession, and rush for the fewest yards in the franchise’s 50 seasons. ”We’re calling the runs,” Dalton said. ”And we’re expecting production out of them. When we don’t get that David Andrews Jerseys 2019 , it means you’ve got to make up more on second or third or whatever down it is.” So far, they’ve not done that very often. BULLOCK ON THE SPOT Randy Bullock has missed an extra-point attempt in each of the past two games, figuring in how they played out at the end. Lewis was asked Wednesday if the missed kicks affect his patience level with the kicker. ”It does affect our patience level,” he said. INJURIES CB Adam ”Pacman” Jones had a full practice Wednesday after sitting out the Denver game with a concussion. LB Kevin Minter, who missed the past four with an elbow injury, also fully practiced. CB Darqueze Dennard (knee) and LB Vincent Rey (hamstring) were among those held out. CB William Jackson III (toe) and TE Tyler Kroft (hand) were limited. —
