And then there were three ... unsigned first-rounders, that is, since Jermaine Gresham and the Cincinnati Bengals agreed to a five-year contract.

The news was broken by the ever-vigilant OchoCinco News Network , which in no way uses its connections with the Bengals and the NFL to get the scoop on stories.

Sarcasm aside, OchoCinco is correct in calling Gresham "another weapon" -- the Oklahoma product won't be the No. 1 option (or the No. 2, for that matter) on the Bengals, and his stats may not be obscene during his rookie season, but he's going to be a spectacular bailout target for Carson Palmer.

Say whatever you want about the nature of the personalities on the Bengals, but their offensive output should be improved this year, as teams are more likely to be punished if they double Chad Ochocinco.

Update (6:00 PM): Joe Reedy reports via Twitter that the deal is worth $15.85 million (and a max of $18.5 million) with $9.6 million guaranteed.
