David Pollack and the Bengals ended their 19-day stalemate Wednesday when he signed a five-year deal that can be worth as much as $13 million, said one of his agents in the office of IMG. The guaranteed money is believed to be $7.65 million. Pollack, the 17th pick in the first round out of Georgia, continues his transition from All-American defensive end to NFL strong-side linebacker after missing all 24 sessions of training camp at Georgetown (Ky.) College. The club is to break camp after Wednesday mornings practice, and confirmed the signing with Pollack appearing later at a 2 p.m. Paul Brown Stadium news conference. He's expected to make Thursdays trip for the second pre-season game against the Redskins. It was a holdout that rarely spilled into the public. Head coach Marvin Lewis replaced Pollack as No. 1 on the depth chart with Landon Johnson last week, and then in last Mondays news conference he offered his harshest words yet when Lewis said the dispute went against the team culture he has cultivated in his three seasons as head coach. I think weve really fought very hard to eliminate these kind of actions around here and its a shame that it occurred, Lewis said. We have other guys who have chosen to be here and weve eliminated selfishness that occurs. Ive said it many times. If thats what it comes down to, a dollar here a dollar there, theyre on the wrong football team. This football team will never, ever be guided by one guy. Were not going to be compromised by one player or one person and thats not going to change. Marvin tells it like it is! Thank you Marvin Lewis!
