Ten ways Bengals could spend $8 million

8/31/2010

The Cincinnati Bengals reportedly wasted $8 million dollars this year on injured receiver Antonio Bryant, who never played a down and was cut after five months with the team. The move was strange, considering the Bengals' reputation as a frugal organization.

With that said, here are the top 10 ways Cincinnati could better spend $8 million:

10. Sign two backup quarterbacks, a kicker and fullback

9. Extend Cedric Benson's contract

8. Overhaul the Bengals' medical department

7. Provide a signing bonus for Johnathan Joseph

6. Give raises to assistant coaches

5. Build an indoor practice facility

4. Hire scouts

3. Hire a general manager

2. Extend Marvin Lewis' contract

1. Give $8 million back to Hamilton County
