Reports out of DC and Cincinnati say that disgruntled Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson is trying to force a trade to the Redskins.

What talent the Bengals could possibly covet on the Redskins roster remains to be seen. Because in trading with the ‘Skins, the Bengals would have to get something to keep pace with the hated Steelers and the much-improved Browns.
