Carl McNally Pickens (born March 23, 1970 in Murphy, North Carolina) is a former American Football wide receiver who played for the Cincinnati Bengals, the Tennessee Titans, and the Dallas Cowboys, although he never actually played for the Cowboys.

This was a loyalty clause that the Bengals created and added to Carl Pickens contract, which would cause him to forfeit all or some of his signing bonus if he insulted the organization in public.
Sorry, Carl, you're stuck with Bengals (679 words)
Pickens is a great player and a colossal pain, perhaps the best receiver and most difficult personality the local football firm has ever employed.
Pickens is attempting to pressure the Bengals into sending him somewhere else, to escape the “franchise player” tag that tethers him to the team at a time he otherwise might explore free agency.
Still, to cut Pickens a break is to reward a player for pouting, for insolence, for arrogance, for embarrassing teammates and coaches, for fostering the franchise's mercenary, me-first image, for holding his breath until he turns blue.
