Matt Miller of New Era Scouting reports that the potential trade between the Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals for cornerback Deltha O’Neal could happen soon. Miller reports that the likely compensation for the Bengals would be a third round pick.
Earlier this month, O’Neal pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless driving stemming from a drunken driving arrest in December. O’Neal pleaded not guilty to the drunk driving charge. For his guilty plea, O’Neal was given a 30-day suspended jail sentence, 3 years’ probation, was fined $250, and donated $1000 to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. His driver’s license was also suspended for six months from the date of his arrest, but is allowed to drive to and from work.
