“I don’t deserve an extension…”

According to a report by SB Nation – Cincy Jungle blog, Bengals tight end, Jermaine Gresham, told the media on Thursday that he didn’t believe that he deserved a contract extension.  He added that other recent contract extensions were deserved but felt like he had more to prove before signing a new contract.

It’s rather refreshing to hear a professional athlete hold himself accountable.  Now I have even more reason to root for Gresham and the Bengals in 2013.
