    Darqueze Dennard isn’t stressing his contract situation with Bengals
    Darqueze Dennard knows the Cincinnati Bengals pay up to keep top talent and especially like the cornerback position. Either way, he isn’t worried about the fact he needs an extension this year.

    Tate will Try to Reach Roster
    Rookie Auden Tate made a big impression at the Bengals’ minicamp in mid-June. Emphasis on BIG. The 6’5”, 228 pound wide receiver out of Florida State made several jaw-dropping touchdown catches that had his fellow receivers raving.

    Cincinnati Bengals off season analysis
    Enquirer beat writers Paul Dehner Jr. and Jim Owczarski give their analysis of the Bengals off season moves.

    2014 NFL draft redo has Bengals selecting Devonta Freeman over Darqueze Dennard

    Here's a look at some of the community events the Bengals have participated in this offseason.

    Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka gives his 2018 outlook for a 'wiser' Bengals team
    Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka joins "NFL Total Access" to talk about his outlook for the 2018 season.

    Bengals have 1 of PFF's newcomers most likely to make immediate impact
    Will Cordy Glenn help the Bengals offensive line protect Andy Dalton better this season? The team sure hopes so or they wouldn’t have acquired him from the Buffalo Bills via trade prior to the NFL draft.

    Bengals' 2018 Roster Projections: Quarterbacks
    Mediocre. Static. Uninspired. Those words could be accurately used to describe the Bengals’ quarterback play in 2017. Andy Dalton continued his run of extremely average play – punctuated with occasional below-average play – as a starter last season. He developed a particularly bad habit of panicking and throwing the ball away early instead of attempting to extend plays. Yes, the offensive line was an issue, but Dalton’s poor performance wasn’t merely a product of theirs. If the Bengals want to be playoff contenders in 2018, Dalton has to perform better.

    Bengals Describe Offseason Adventures
    Remember the first day of school when you were a kid and the teacher would ask everybody to stand up and tell the class what you did over the summer? I enjoy basically doing that each year in the Bengals locker room. Here are some of the interesting adventures that Bengals’ players have had in the offseason.

    Bengals 2017 Season in Review: Week 1
    Now that it has been almost 10 months since the beginning of last season, we have forgotten a lot of the storylines from last year’s team. Reviewing the box scores, game flows, and workload distributions from last season should provide some context for the projections for this upcoming year. Each article will deal with one week from the 2017 season. This pilot article will focus on Week 1, which was the Bengals’ first game against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Bengals Open at +400 to Make the Playoffs This Season
    The Bengals sit at +400 (or 4/1) to make the playoffs, according to Vegas. Those aren’t terrible odds, but they are among the worst in the NFL. For comparison, division rivals Pittsburgh and Baltimore have odds of -550 and +125, respectively.

    Chad Johnson says he’s ready to join FC Cincinnati
    Chad Johnson might not be done with the city of Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Bengals legend now has his eye on the city’s next big thing: FC Cincinnati. In a joking (we think) Twitter post, Johnson laid out his plans

    Cordy Glenn hailed as a newcomer about to make a big impact
    The Cincinnati Bengals admitted a mistake this offseason, aggressively trading for a new left tackle by the name of Cordy Glenn. The Buffalo Bills were more than happy to get Glenn’s massive contract off the books and avoid his shaky injury history, as well (he’s missed 15 games over the past two seasons).

    Carl Lawson has sights set on 120 career sacks with Cincinnati Bengals
    With 64.5 sacks in his eight seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, defensive end Carlos Dunlaphas his eye on Eddie Edwards' franchise record of 83.5. Carl Lawson has 8.5 career sacks. But the former Auburn standout envisions owning the team record, too. Lawson led the NFL's rookies in sacks last season and came up one sack short of Dunlap's Cincinnati rookie record.

    Re-grading Bengals’ 2016 NFL draft
    As we’ve noted, one of the major themes surrounding the Cincinnati Bengals as they head into pivotal 2018 season is the arrival of delayed production from major recent draft picks. Guys like Joe Mixon and John Ross from the 2017 class need to meet expectations for the Bengals to compete.

    2018 Opponent Profile: Cincinnati Bengals
    Cincinnati struggled on offense throughout 2017 and finished with the least amount of yards in the league. Quarterback Andy Dalton ranked 29th in yards per game and the Bengals ranked 31st in rushing yards. Cincinnati finished the season 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

    Cincinnati Bengals: 5 burning questions in 2018
    It seems like after every season, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis is on the hot seat. Which is somewhat confusing as he prepares for his 16th year with the club. It appeared to be a certainty a few months ago as the club was wrapping up a 7-9 showing. But to the team’s credit, it won its final two games, knocked both the Detroit Lions and Baltimore Ravens out of the playoffs and concluded a 7-6 stretch following a 0-3 start.

    KeiVarae Russell finished degree at Notre Dame during Bengals OTAs
    KeiVarae Russell pulled off one of the most impressive feats of the summer for the Cincinnati Bengals. Not only did the cornerback partake in OTAs as expected, he wrapped up his degree at Notre Dame

    Sizing Up Glenn
    In a league filled with genetic giants, Bengals offensive lineman Cordy Glenn stands out. “He’s huge,” said quarterback Andy Dalton. “I saw him in a picture standing next to Clint (Boling) and Clint is a big guy, and he’s like twice the size of Clint. He’s a large human. There aren’t many people built like him.”

    Ball’s bees: Why a former Bengals RB turned to beekeeping
    An avid outdoorsman, the Cincinnati Bengals’ director of player relations spent a fourth of July holiday weekend at a friend’s farm five summers ago and noticed several beehives. It piqued it his interest. Over the next year, he read Beekeeping for dummies, watched YouTube videos and volunteered at Gorman Heritage Farm to learn how to do it.

    Colts vs. Bengals: What you need to know
    Analysis: Quarterback Andy Dalton is as good as the players around him. In 2015, that meant a 10-3 record (before Dalton was injured) with a 25-to-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a career-high 106.2 quarterback rating. But in 2016, star receiver A.J. Green only played in 10 games and tight end Tyler Eifert in 8 and Dalton slumped to a 18-to-8 TD-to-INT ration, 91.8 QB rating and a 6-9-1 record. Last season, the offensive line suffered and Dalton's QB rating slipped again to 86.6. The Bengals added tackles Cordy Glenn and Bobby Hart and center Billy Price. They'll be relying on the rebuilt line to give Dalton the time he needs and resurrect the running game after rookie Joe Mixon averaged just 3.5 yards per rush.

    6 things Bengals have said about new offensive line coach Frank Pollack
    The biggest savior for a turnaround-seeking Cincinnati Bengals team in 2018 isn’t John Ross, Tyler Eifert or other big names — it’s offensive line coach Frank Pollack.

    Cedric Ogbuehi feels comfortable in return to right tackle
    Ogbuehi has started 25 games the last two years, but the team’s hopes haven’t been realized. Ogbuehi didn’t impress at right tackle in 2016 or left tackle in 2017, which led the Bengals to decline their option on his contract for the 2019 season and put him back into competition for the right tackle job after trading for Cordy Glenn this offseason.

    Bengals add to scouting department
    The Cincinnati Bengals have made an addition to the scouting department with Christian Sarkisian. Director of player personnel Duke Tobin quietly made the move recently, according to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

    Bengals 53-Man Roster Projection: Cornerbacks
    As we continue our roster projection series, cornerbacks are up next on the docket. To be honest, cornerback might be the easiest position on the entire roster to project for next season. The Bengals have loaded up on first round corners in the last few years, and just added two more rookies in the fifth round of this year’s draft. Outside of those players, there is very little competition to make the roster at the cornerback position. Still, we will run you through who will make the roster this year.

    Roster Projection: Quarterbacks-
    Have you noticed how quickly writers are to use Oline struggles when making excuses for players not named Andy Dalton? You can't discuss Joe Mixon without being swamped by an avalanche of O-line related excuses. More? A recent recap of Josh Malones rookie season noted how he and Ross weren't able to exploit defenses deep due to the Bengals checkdown passing game and Oline struggles. Yet somehow when the subject turns to Dalton few are willing to make the same allowances despite him playing a position almost entirely dependent on others. Last year Dalton couldn't have gotten less help from his Oline and weapons Eifert, LaFell, Mixon, Ross, Malone, and Boyd. Did I miss anyone? Even AJ Green admitted he had a down year. Dalton isn't the problem.

    Also, the Bengals recently claimed they had new backup Matt Barkley ranked much higher than where he went in the draft. Is that supposed to make fans feel better? Are we supposed to sleep better at night knowing the Bengals dodged a draft bullet and didn't get their guy until after he had washed out with nearly a half dozen teams? Shouldn't a team learn from its mistakes? Clearly the Bengals horribly overrated Barkley back then...and probably still are.

  9. #109
    I guess most teams are effed when their starting QB goes down for more than a few games, but this team is doomed. It’s arguably the worst QB backup situation in the league, unless one of the young guys steps up... because it won’t be Barkley. Heck, I could see him getting cut before the regular season.

    I know coming into his last year at USC, he was highly rated but I think the PR machine was to blame for that... and he’s regressed since. Hope I’m wrong but I thought he was a worthless pickup.

    Roster Projection: Cornerbacks -Disagree with the writer. Bengals have a couple of years invested in Kevarie Russell. No way I'd cut a guy just as he started getting reps in the rotation. He plays well when given opportunities. And IMO there's no shame in the lack of playing time either. Until recently he's had WJ3 and Pac ahead of him. Now Pac is busy trying to fight his way through airports. Point being, snaps are suddenly available and Russell is ready. Plus, rookies weren't drafted early and won't be ready to contribute for some time.
