What sound do Bengals make? Cheap, cheap

There is damning with faith praise, and then there is damning while you praise another. Former Bengal Jonathan Joseph, who signed with the Texans last year as a free agent, recently lauded the atmosphere with the Houston club while at the same time deriding his former employers in Cincinnati.

Heres what Joseph told HeraldOnline.com in South Carolina (via Pro Football Talk): The first thing about Houston is its an organization run from a different perspective. In Cincy, the team lives off money it earns from football. Houstons owner has other business interests, and he controls the money. Numerous things that go on such as the way Houston interacts with my family; were treated in a first-class way. They helped us when my wife lost our baby daughter in a miscarriage.

But they help with anything you ask of them because they are a very caring organization with positive attitudes about its players. In Cincy, were told how much Gatorade we could take home. In Houston, we get what we request. You get soap and deodorant at your request. You dont have a roommate on road trips.

At first blush, your reaction might be that athletes being paid millions can afford their own Gatorade, soap, deodorant and single hotel rooms. True enough.

However, though its easy to spend Mike Browns money and we dont know if the Bengals profit margins are so tight that they need to count the towels in the locker room, such small things obviously can loom large in the minds of some players as an indicator of an organizations certain kind of attitude toward its employees. Might that not be worth the relatively small investment of not counting bottles of Gatorade?

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Left guard competition heating up

Kick off your Monday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

That’s it. Make plays.”
