And now we, Bengals, have 1 1st Round, 2 2nd Round, 2 3rd Round, and 2 4th Round picks.

 

I can't believe we got a 2nd rounder for a guy we were going to cut.

 

:happydance :happydance :happydance

We play Corey and the Pats in PBS in the pre-season. I wonder if he'll get booed. :mischief

here's an article

 

Disgruntled running back Corey Dillon was traded by the Bengals to the New England Patriots for a second-round draft pick, 56th overall, on Monday, ending a stellar and stormy seven-year stay with the Bengals.

 

 

Dillon holds most of the franchise's rushing records, but chafed at his reduced role last year as Cincinnati enjoyed a renaissance season under coach Marvin Lewis.

 

 

"Corey joins Kevin Faulk and our other very good backs to deepen an already competitive running back position," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said.

 

 

With four picks in the first two rounds, seven in the first four, the Patriots were considered to be big players in this draft. They had the flexibility to move up and down to acquire draftable players who interest them.

 

 

But one of their main needs was running back. Sitting with the 21st pick in the first round, the Patriots were probably not going to get a chance to take the first running back, believed to be Steven Jackson of Oregon State. The Broncos moved to the 17th pick in the first round, giving teams around the league the idea they were taking Jackson.

 

 

The Raiders and Bengals had conversations about a trade weeks ago, but could not agree on a deal. The Bengals wanted a second-round pick. The Raiders were willing to give up a third-rounder and were going to be patient in trying to get the price.

 

 

Evaluating the first round, the Patriots apparently determined not to wait for Virginia Tech halfback Kevin Jones with the 21st pick. Dillon was acquired to replace Antowain Smith, whose contract was voided at the start of free agency.

 

 

In acquiring Dillon, the Patriots pick up a 29-year-old running back who has rushed for 8,061 yards in seven seasons. Injuries limited Dillon to 541 yards last season. Rudi Johnson ended up being the team's leading rusher.

 

 

 

The trade ends a stormy final season in Cincinnati for Dillon, who cleaned out his locker after the final game and repeatedly lobbied for a trade.

 

 

The Bengals now have five picks in the first three rounds, including two second-rounders and two third-rounders. They have nine picks in the first four rounds, including nine in the top 117.

So this is a good deal to los Bengal fanitos?

 

seems like it to me. A nice second rounder and you rid yourself of your talented yet troublesome crybaby RB. Nice Move.

No question. We've been waiting for this day since Corey went off in the middle of our winning streak and after the trade deadline, whining about wanting to be traded and complaining because he wasn't getting enough carries (cause Rudi was busy dominating).

 

We held out for a 2nd round pick all off-season and we finally got it.

i think the bengals are stupid for making this deal. the 56th pick is the last pick in the 2nd round. esentially not making it a legitimate 2nd round pick. GARBAGE! :thumbdown :thumbdown :thumbdown

better than what they WOULD'VE gotten Actually the 63rd pick is the final 2nd pick.

I think this will make the Pats worse. Call me crazy.

I'm not sure what to think....the Pats won as a team, not because they had a superstar on the team. Brady is close to that tag, but still a team player. With Dillon and his "attitude", it may screw with the chemistry.
