Bengals | Francis Only No-Show

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports James Francis, who has frustrated the Bengal management in the past, was the only player to not show up for the voluntary mini-camp. The outside LB who according to Bengal front office staff has blown one million worth of workout bonuses in annual $250,000 payments has been rumored to have fallen behind 2nd year LB Steve Foley in the depth chart. Coach Bruce Coslet was quoted as saying "When he's sitting his ass on the bench or playing for someone else, I don't really care. Next question." Owner Mike Brown was quoted as saying "It's a familiar story, He's a guy who should be more responsible, especially at his stage. Yet he has never stepped up in the off-season. Easy come, easy go."
