Blue finds a home

Just a quick note that some die-hards might want to know: defensive back Blue Adams, released by the Bucs last week a day after the draft, signed a two-year free-agent contract with the Bengals today.

The Bengals had him for a tryout camp over the weekend, similar to what the Bucs staged the past three days in Tampa. Apparently, Adams made an impact.

This is good personal news for Adams. He played college ball at Cincinnati and his children reside there with their mother.

Good for him.

Also, while we're on the subject of the Bengals, it appears they have decided to proceed without signing Bucs free agent quarterback Tim Rattay. He worked out for the team recently, but Cincinnati reportedly has decided has decided to stand pat. That means it's possible the Bengals might stick with former Gator Doug Johnson as Carson Palmer's backup.

If that's the case, they'd better keep Palmer upright. Johnson hasn't thrown an NFL pass since 2004. Wow.
