Yes! Cincinnati has exacted revenge on Minnesota, which only two days ago signed Bengals receiver/kick returner Glenn Holt.

Friday, the Bengals signed Vikings fullback Naufahu Tahi to an offer sheet worth $1.4 million, according to Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The move also rectifies a long-standing grudge of the Vikings signing Tahi off the Bengals' practice squad in 2006.

In all seriousness, the Vikings haven't tried very hard to keep Tahi -- who is a restricted free agent -- and instead are pursuing free agent Leonard Weaver. The Bengals' offer is worth $390,000 more than the $1.01 million tender the Vikings placed on Tahi when free agency began.

The Vikings have seven days to decide whether to match the Bengals' offer, which they hope will coincide with Weaver's decision.
