Most likely he's staying:
“I love Cincinnati and want to be there,” Whitworth told co-host Solomon Wilcots and me Monday on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “I’m pretty positive things will work out in a way that I’ll be there in the end. But I want to take advantage of the opportunity of being free and listening to what other people have to say. I think that’s the right way to do it.
“At this point in my career it’s about the challenge, the excitement of trying to win that Super Bowl. I want to make sure wherever it is, and hopefully it’s in Cincinnati, that team is prepared to try and fight for that trophy.”
I realize that you guys are reading the tea leaves, but Whit probably isn't going to stick it to MB and ML like we'd like to see happen. If there was an obvious other suitor for his services it would be much discussed by now.
Bell-cow quarterbacks are like queen bees. Only one can take you to the land of milk and honey.
