    Some of us have brought this up in the past, but this is the first time Chad ever entertained the idea:

    He is a great talent, but a bit of a nut job. I dont know if even BB can shut this guy up. I saw a clip on NFLN with him asking Bill Parcells to give him a call. It seems he'd take any team over Cinci right now.

    Johnson wants to be anything besides a Bengal.

    The way BB has spoke about him in the past leaves me to believe that BB knows him enough and if BB were to go after him than that should be enough insurance for yuo that he would be able to fit in here.

    So as always in BB we trust....and here is hoping BB can go get him, and keep Randy and Asante.....

    What has Chad Johnson actually ever done to make some of you guys dislike him so much? He celebrates to much?

    Yea, the guy has a big personality, but he's a very hard worker who spends a ton of extra time watching film and studying to get better. He's always been able to keep himself clean throughout all these years, even while playing for a team that features more "turds" than any other in the league.

    If I was him I'd want out too.

    If BB and SP say he's Patriots material, he's Patriot material. I doubted them on Corey Dillon, then I doubted them with Randy Moss. I was wrong on both accounts, they were right. If Chad IS a nut job and can't possibly fall in line, they won't even talk to him. If the brain-trust of the Pats deem him of the right mental make-up, I'm done questioning them.

    Belichick loves this guy, and he even said he wished he was playing for NE.

    As much as Chad is a talented receiver, his recent attitude has soured me on him. Supposedly BB is fond of him, so who knows? Nobody thought Moss would land here either.

    Also from that article:

    Good news! :)

    I think he'd behave on the Patriots. His behavior with the Bengals is like that of a child craving attention. I think the possibility of a ring would be a happy substitute for that. Would the Pats bring him in? Who knows, after last year.

    Bill thinks he's cute and fun when he's someone else's problem. Even Bill and a veteran locker room couldn't shut this clown up. Tremendous talent when everything is going his way. Pain in the ass to flat out cancer when it's not. The Bengals are once again a disaster, and he is part of the problem, not a victim of it.

    PS we had a thread about him yesterday too.

    And we are only about the 10th team he's hinted he'd love to play for this week, and the week isn't over yet. He and Rosenhaus are in AZ to do the show me the money tour. He's trying to shoot his way out of town with a toothy smile so people won't think he's a bad guy...LOL

    I don't mind celebrations, in fact, I like them. The game's about entertainment, and he's an entertainer.

    For me, the issue is seeing him chew out Palmer in the game we played against them this season. Palmer's no scrub, if Johnson can't respect him, how can we guarantee he won't disrespect Brady?

    I guess I have my doubts that Johnson can come in, just as Moss has, and be completely team first. I for one never had any doubts about Moss' attitude or ability to be a team-oriented guy, lumping Moss in that category was the lazy work of the media. Johnson, I don't know how he'd fit.

    Agreed. Johnson, like Moss, is a lot more intelligent than people give him credit for. Yeah, he clowns around on the field, but is that really all that big of a deal if he does his job exceptionally well? It's not like he's off getting arrested every other month.

    I doubt he'll end up here unless Moss bolts, which I don't see happening.

    The team's #1 priority in the offseason is going to be the linebackers and secondary. They're pretty well set everywhere else.

    Belichick likes this guy, I was a huge fan of his in the draft (he was my favorite WR in the draft that year, and one of the guys I thought the Pats might actually draft - Chad Jackson ended up being the guy that, years later, actually fulfilled my desire to see one of my draft guys go to the Pats), and he'd be an excellent fit here. Unfortunately, it won't happen, this year at least, because the Bengals wouldn't give him up for anything short of a 1st or a package of multiple high picks, and WR just isn't a need for the Pats. Before you dismiss him as too selfish or a bad character, the guy wants to win in a bad way, and he'd fall into line here, just like Randy has. No one crosses Belichick and has their football career survive. (No, Deion, I wasn't talking about you... much.)

    the thought (day dreaming) of a recieving corps of Moss, Johnson and Welker makes me smile:D

    I swear to God, people can't read. My post, which you quoted, contains the words "I actually like him."

    Boggles the mind.

    The future HOF thing did it for me. He's all about himself i don't care how good he is. If we lose what we have i would take a discounted chance. I'd still rather have Uno Cero.

    While I tend to think that MoLewisrocks is correct when he says that Belichick loves Chad as long as he's on someone else's team, you just never know. This time last year most of us didn't think he'd want Moss either. I think this would be overkill, even Stallworth with Moss and Welker is overkill and I like Johnson more than Stallworth, but, again, I'll never put anything past Belichick - other than replacing Brady; that's hot happening :)

    I would just love to see that combo with Brady. :D
    What a season of enjoyment that would be as long as Johnson could really be
    team first guy.
    I doubt it will ever happen. :(

    How about a Chad for Chad trade plus a few extra goodies for Cincy?
    Jackson is not happy here Johnson not happy there so .... :rolleyes:

    Agreed. He's not going anywhere for as cheap as Moss did.

    It wasn't completely aimed at you, but at the posters who fallowed. Also, while you said "I actually like him", you still made it sound like he's a head case, and wouldn't be able to fit in. Basically, you qualified your insult.

    I'd love to see the Pats add Johnson - can you imagine having to defend Moss, Johnson, Welker, Watson and Maroney - but no way do the Bengals trade Johnson to the Pats.

    I said he never shuts up, which is true. What followed was clearly a joke.

    Not shutting up is the only way out of Cinci for wasted talent, ala Dillon and Carl Pickins.

    Belichick loves Chad Johnson. Talks him up whenever we play the Bengals. If the price were right BB would take Chad in a second. Trust me Chad Johnson would tone it down big time in Foxborough.

    Dillon wasn't exactly Mr. Content in Cincy up until he was traded, either. He talks alot and does crazy celebrations, but he's never been a problem with the law. If TO can be a good teammate in Dallas, Ocho can be a good teammate in New England. Winning, as we've seen with Moss, does wonders for attitude.

    Do Randy and Chad get along? I heard Chad interviewed on WFAN yesterday, and they asked him whether he keeps in touch with the other elite WRs during the season. He said he does, says he talks to Steve Smith and other guys but said "I don't think I have the right number for Randy, I think I got the wrong number." Implying that he's tried to talk to Randy but hasn't gotten a response.

    So I don't know, maybe the two don't much like each other.
