O’Neal trade unlikely?

March 31st, 2007

ESPN’s Len Pasquarelli reports that any Falcon trade for Deltha O’Neal is unlikely at this point, mainly due to the Bengals desire to keep the seven-year veteran. This contrasts previous reports that indicated that the deal might be close.

The Bengals plan to promote second-year cornerback Jonathan Joseph into Tory James’s vacant starting position, and want an experienced veteran to start opposite him. Although if a deal that ships O’Neal out of Cincinnati were to occur, the Bengals have a contingency plan of moving free safety Madieu Williams to his vacant position.
