Thread: Offseason, the sequel

    3 top 10 picks from last year who need big step forward
    As frustrating as Corey Davis’ 2017 season was, John Ross would gladly trade places. Ross finished the year without a catch, entering the stat sheet for just 2 targets, 1 rush for 12 yards… and a fumble on that carry. Playing in just three games in 2017, Ross was one of the biggest disappointments of the 2017 class. Things became so bad in Cincinnati that Ross was at times a healthy scratch and had received some consideration from the coaching staff to be called upon to play cornerback. That isn’t a great way to kick off a career.

    John Ross’ ‘story is not written,’ says Duke Tobin

    It’s easy to forget the Cincinnati Bengals have a top-10 pick from a year ago on the roster. The John Ross story so far boils down to his entering the NFL injured and trying to fight through it with a franchise that typically leans conservative and plays veterans over younger guys.

    Looking at Darqueze Dennard's extension costs
    Following the breakout season of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard, the team decided to place the fifth-year option on the former 2014 first-round pick. Even with the departure of former cornerback Adam Jones, Cincinnati looks to have a dangerous secondary this coming season. Dennard will resume his role as the slot cornerback, and cornerbacks William Jackson III and Dre Kirkpatrick will resume the outside positions in 2018.

    Hubbard’s career changed in dodgeball, led him to Bengals
    Sam Hubbard was engrossed in a dodgeball game during his high school gym class when Ohio State coach Urban Meyer walked through the door. A lot of heads turned, including his. And his sports career took a very different turn.

    Ohio State’s Chris Worley reveals why he chose Bengals over other offers
    Ohio State’s Chris Worley didn’t just want to stay local — he wanted to join a Cincinnati Bengals team that made him feel welcome and like he has a chance to make a final roster. The Bengals didn’t draft Worley with one of their 11 picks in the 2018 NFL draft but were quick to contact him near the end of it — along with 10 to 12 other teams.

    Ohio State trio blazing fresh path to Cincinnati Bengals
    When asked how many Ohio State Buckeyes he can name that played for the Bengals, new Cincinnati linebacker Chris Worley’s list didn’t go very far. “A.J. Hawk,” said Worley, one of 10 undrafted free agents who officially signed with Cincinnati on Friday. After that, the connections require a deeper dive into the mental archives, especially for somebody who just put ink to paper on his contract hours prior.

    Slants and screens: Price puts in full day despite injury; 3 more sign
    Billy Price isn’t going to face a defensive tackle before training camp begins in two-and-a-half months but that didn’t stop him from staying on the field longer than anybody else Saturday during the middle day of the Bengals rookie minicamp. Price, the Bengals’ Opening Day center, is doing all the things a first-round pick should do even though he’s still rehabbing from an early March surgery to repair a partially-torn pectoral muscle.

    BX: Uphill climb for Böhringer, undrafted free agents to make Bengals
    Moritz Böhringer loves pasta. The smile when relaying that fact on the face of the German international player assigned to the Cincinnati Bengals tells you all you need to know about how he attacked his transition from receiver to tight end. Since being drafted in the sixth round by the Minnesota Vikings out of the German Football League in 2016, he’s built up almost 20 pounds, so he can change positions from wide receiver to tight end.

    Daugherty: Cincinnati Reds, Bengals missing out on millennial audience
    To his friends, he might seem a fossil. Andrew Naab is a 25-year-old who loves the Reds. He has been to 21 consecutive Opening Days, which is nothing compared with the 34 straight his parents have attended. He recalls the Findlay Market Parade of 2003, when grand marshal Sparky Anderson pulled him from a crowd of adults, signed an autograph and posed for a picture.

    Could Bengals make a trade before the regular season
    When the Cincinnati Bengals drafted offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi in the first-round of the 2015 NFL Draft, he was expected to be the successor of left tackle Andrew Whitworth. Ogbuehihad time to sit behind the Pro Bowl tackle and yet has yet to prove he is worth starting on either side of the line. He has missed time in all three seasons due to injuries and being benched.

    UDFA Chris Worley talks why he chose the Bengals
    Ohio State linebacker Chris Worley not hearing his name during the 2018 NFL Draft was a surprise to even some of the top analysts. However, it didn’t take long for Worley to make a decision on where he would sign as a UDFA. Worley chose the Cincinnati Bengals for many reasons over other offers and is the highest paid rookie free agent earning around $13,000.

    Notebook: Rookie backer eyes Tez as camp breaks; Home base
    The Bengals finished off their rookie minicamp in Sunday’s one-hour workout but they’ll be back at Paul Brown Stadium Monday morning to mix with the veterans in their workouts for the first time. That’s when Connecticut middle linebacker Junior Joseph, an undrafted rookie, is hoping to meet another undrafted linebacker. The 6-0, 229-pound Joseph, a top 15 tackler in Huskies history, hopes to glean some tips from Vontaze Burfict.

    More than locker mates
    They don’t know what is more amazing. That they both got out of Liberty City and into an NFL camp? Or that when they got there, Mark Walton, and Quinton Flowers were lockering next to each other? “No. 32 and No. 34,” says Flowers, No. 34. “There’s a reason for everything.”

    Who Will be the Bengals' Goal Line Back?
    Say what you will about running back Jeremy Hill, but the guy was excellent in short-yardage situations. The former Bengal (and current Patriot) was never particularly efficient running the ball. However, he was hugely successful around the goal line for the Bengals for the past few years. In Hill’s first three years (2014-2016), he put up 9, 11, and 9 touchdowns on the ground. All but three of those 31 touchdowns came in the red zone.

    Red flags for Bengals have analysts skeptical
    The Cincinnati Bengals have had a busy offseason between new coaches coming into the organization and adding players to the roster. It’s especially true for the offense as offensive coordinator Bill Lazor puts his stamp on the playbook for the first time. Lazor looks to change a significant portion of how the offense plays and while it can be exciting, there are also reasons to be worried.

    Columbia City’s Jared Murphy appreciates last-minute Cincinnati Bengals rookie minicamp experience
    Jared Murphy made the most of his limited time with the Cincinnati Bengals. He hopes it’ll lead to another NFL opportunity. Murphy, a standout wide receiver from Columbia City High School and Miami (Ohio) University, received a call late Friday afternoon inviting him as a tryout player to the three-day rookie minicamp. The camp opened earlier Friday morning.

    Bengals sign three more draft picks to rookie deals
    It was a busy weekend for the Cincinnati Bengals and their 2018 rookie class as they started their rookie minicamps on Friday afternoon. Even with everything going on during the minicamps, Cincinnati found the time to sign three more of their draft picks to their rookie contracts. These deals include safety Jessie Bates, cornerback Darius Phillips, and running back Mark Walton.

    Bengals sign three try-out players
    The Bengals signed three try-out players who are all college free agents after last weekend’s rookie minicamp. In order to make room Monday they cut third-year safety Robenson Therezieand a pair of first-year players that participated in the camp, guard Oni Omoile and tight end Scott Orndoff.

    Price bench pressing playbook
    Rookie center Billy Price, the Bengals’ No. 1 pick, isn’t scheduled to make a snap until training camp but he’s already making an impact. After hooking on as one of the three try-out players that survived last weekend’s rookie minicamp, Oklahoma State center Brad Lundblade saluted Price for helping him out with the playbook while he made the majority of the snaps.

    Cincinnati Bengals QB Logan Woodside happy with start
    Two weeks have passed since the Cincinnati Bengals picked Logan Woodside in the seventh round, but the Frankfort, Ky. native sounded just as excited for his first rookie camp practice as he did on draft night when his favorite team growing up took a chance on him.

    Mixon is still 220, isn’t he? He’s big enough to be a goal line back.

    I forget the numbers, but I think I read he was trying to shed some weight this year. I still think he's perfectly capable of doing it either way.

  8. Yeah, if not Mixon, let Tre Carson, Cethan Carter, or Ryan Hewitt make the roster and be our short yardage back.

    Veteran Cornerback Adam 'Pacman' Jones Linked to Raiders
    Since the Raiders hired Jon Gruden as head coach, the team hasn’t been shy about bringing in veteran (some would even say aging) talent. Among the acquisitions: wide receiver Jordy Nelson, linebacker Derrick Johnson and running back Doug Martin.

    College Sports: Former Longhorns LB Malik Jefferson says he ignored advice from NFL draft committee before turning pro
    In three seasons with the Longhorns, linebacker Malik Jefferson tallied 233 tackles and 12 sacks, serving as the linchpin of Texas' defense throughout his three years on the 40 Acres. And in his final season with the burnt orange, Jefferson shined, earning Big 12 Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year honors.

    Bengals most overpaid/underpaid players in 2018
    The Cincinnati Bengals are unique in the way that they are getting very valuable production from players playing on contracts that are well below market value. Which is the keyword, value. Everything in the NFL revolves around value, and when a team can pay less than what a player is worth, it’s a great value, and if the player is not meeting his contract numbers, the value goes down.

    5 UFAs with best chance to make Cincinnati Bengals roster
    Last year there were two rookie UFAs who made the initial 53-man roster in tight end Cethan Carter and linebacker Hardy Nickerson. Additionally, there were four other players who entered the league as UFAs on the 53 in offensive linemen Trey Hopkins and Alex Redmond, wide receiver Alex Erickson and linebacker Vincent Rey. And that list doesn’t include linebacker Vontaze Burfict, a 2013 UFA who was suspended for the start of the 2017 season, and will be again for the first four games in 2018.
