Dillon Detonates

Posted Oct 22, 2003

Corey Dillon spoke his mind in front of reporters this afternoon, and said that he wants out of Cincinnati. Here's the short version... Kevin Goheen was there, and will have more insight later tonight. Talk about it on the Bengals Insider forums!

Corey Dillon's fuse has been burning for some time, and today he appears to gone off.

Dillon told reporters in the Bengals locker room this afternoon that he wants out of Cincinnati. He spent nearly half-an-hour with reporters, including BengalsInsider.com's Kevin Goheen, and at one point stated that he wanted to be traded to Dallas. Dillon was quoted as saying "I want out! Trade me to Dallas!"

Initially, Dillon spoke only with Bengals employee Geoff Hobson and Dayton Daily News reporter Chick Ludwig. BengalsInsider.com will link all of their stories via our newswire as they publish them.

Dillon seems to be frustrated by his less-dominant role with the team in 2003 and is undoubtedly upset with injuries that have plagued him, as well as trade rumors and media criticism. As Dillion comes back from a groin injury, he is getting the ball less frequently and is visibly upset.

With the Bengals enjoying new life under new head coach Marvin Lewis, the biggest question around the outburst is "Why now?". Kevin will have more insight here later today and Bengals fans are talking about it now on the Bengals Insider forums...
