Buzz: Cinci Upped Offer for Nelson

While the Jets might be the most likely team to sign Reggie Nelson, the Bengals are not going to give up without a fight, per Joe Reedy in the Cincinnati Inquirer.

After a visit to the Jets, safety Reggie Nelson is close to making a decision and is weighing offers from the Jets, Bengals and a mystery third team. The Bengals talks had been going slow, but the team has raised its offer in the past couple of days and is firmly in the running to re-sign him.

Hmm.. Nelson’s career was revived in Cinci so he might have some strong loyalties there. The Bengals first offer wasn’t enough to keep him from looking .. wonder what it looks like now ..
