EDITOR’S NOTE: You can ignore this story, as apparently Donte Whitner thought it would be funny to lie to everyone and say he signed with Cincinnati, when he’s actually signed with San Francisco. More on this very shortly.)
The strange saga of Donte Whitner took its latest big turn Thursday afternoon, as Whitner has apparently signed with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals reported signed Whitner for the (in my opinion) bargain price of $4 million over two years. The only real explanations for the Bills not matching that price are 1) Whitner has alienated everyone in the Buffalo front office with his public comments on Twitter and the press and 2) the Bills have a ton of faith in George Wilson and Bryan Scott. I’m still at training for my real job, so more to come on this later when I have real access to a computer.
