The story, as they say, is fluid. The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Key Cabot recently tweeted that is was the Bungs who screwed it up:

Try again: #Browns sent signed doc to #Bengals to sign and send to league, but #Bengals sent doc to #NFL only signed by them

Mary Kay Cabot‏Verified account @MaryKayCabot 47m47 minutes ago
League source says that #Bengals sent in paperwork to #NFL that had only their signature on it and not the #Browns. Needed both

Now that's funny! You have to turn in the copy that both sides have signed for it to be final. And it was the Bungles front office, not the Browns, who couldn't get it right.

I think that "The Fumble" and "The Burfict Ending" are the two most Browns/Bunglish plays of all time, but this trade failure is the best collaboration between Mikey and his dad's old team ever!

This is why 28 other owners are glad that Ohio has two teams.

When I read it I was thinking somehow the bengals might have some responsibility of their own

The bungs screwed everything else up this year - should we be surprised by this? McCarron should get down on his hands and knees and thank the man upstairs for not getting sent to Siberia. However it's obvious McCarron doesn't fit in their plans but I hope he finds a better place next year.

While the Bengals definitely screwed up, whoever mentioned that the Browns are culpable also are absolutely correct. By chance that the Packers or Steelers or Patriots were making a trade with the Bengals they would probably stay on the phone and hold their hands through the process. With that said I'm guessing that this secretary has a last name of Brown or Blackburn so...

Another funny thing that I saw was "winners and losers of the trade deadline" and it listed thr Browns as both. Losers for all that has been written in this thread, but winners because at least they got a mulligan on overpaying for McCarron. Proof yet again that only the sheep, Alabama fans, and Hue Jackson highly regard AJ while the rest of us see him as Bengals backup qb fodder.

Also oddly enough some sources including Adam Shefter are blaming the Browns not the Bengals.

Faxing things is so 1990s just like this Bengals squad
===============================================
1991-2017 the putrid reign of Mikey Brown:
Record in Prime Time: 12 wins, 33 losses (0.267)
Record vs the Steelers: 14 wins, 42 losses (0.250)
Record vs AFC Playoff Teams: 32 wins, 116 losses (0.216)

DATELINE CINCINNATI: Mikeyboy's secretary, Mrs. Irene Coppercrotch apologized today for sending the wrong paper to the league office. The 87 year old widow who resides next door to Mikey apparently confused the fax machine with the xerox machine. Instead of sending it she made a copy of it. According to Mikey she will not be held accountable because as he said, "We don't hold people accountable here. We're the Bengals."

And in a related incident Bengal Quarterback A.J. McCarron has presented Mrs. Coppercrotch with a dozen roses and will be taking her to the Precinct Steakhouse every evening this week and has purchased a new Chevrolet Lumina for her.
