Dalton babies his receivers

Posted Jul 7, 2014

Call it Camp Noah. In the week they welcomed their first born, the Daltons hosted the Bengals wide receivers Monday for a barbecue dinner after a morning throwing session in Fort Worth.

Mohamed Sanu is among the receivers who made the trip to Fort Worth to throw for a few days with quarterback Andy Dalton.

Call it Camp Noah.

In the week they welcomed their first born, the Daltons hosted the Bengals wide receivers Monday for a barbecue dinner after a morning throwing session in Fort Worth.

“I’ve got a rock star for a wife,’ said quarterback Andy Dalton after the workout at Texas Christian.  “It’s got to be less than a week (after the birth) and the guys came in.

“It’s a good time. (Training camp is) coming up pretty fast.”

Noah Andrew arrived almost as fast, beating his July 4 due date by four days for a June 30 arrival. Just in time to meet some of his dad’s closest co-workers. Three-time Pro Bowler A.J. Green led a contingent of Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate, Ryan Whalen, and Cobi Hamilton in the hopes it is the birth of a breakout season for the Bengals passing game.

With tight ends Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert still apparently rehabbing, the wide receivers had Dalton all to themselves.



Camp Noah comes almost at the halfway point of the five-week layoff between spring practice and the first practice of training camp, a 3 p.m. workout set for July 24 at Paul Brown Stadium.

“It works out really well.   We’ve been gone about two and a half weeks and we get back in about two more weeks,” Dalton said. “I think it shows how much these guys are willing to work. It’s a shorter break this year and guys are all over the place doing different things, but we’re going to get some work in here for a couple of days.”

After another morning workout, Tuesday they head their separate ways until they report 15 days later on July 23. More than anything, it’s an opportunity to bond over a baby and ribs.

“It’s just a chance to work on the little things before we get it going again,” Dalton said. “Working on the routes, doing some of the things that need to get better.”

    While Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green began his second straight practice Thursday, running back Giovani Bernard was nowhere to be seen for the second straight day. That would indicate Bernard is going to miss the first game of his two-year NFL career 1 p.m. Sunday against the Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium.

    Just the mere mention of a rookie quarterback coming into Paul Brown Stadium for Sunday’s 1 p.m. game against Jacksonville can send a shiver through Bengaldom. It hasn't been easy. But QBs - rookie or veteran - have had tough sledding at PBS in the last 13 games.
