Bengals right end Michael Johnson and linebacker Vincent Rey are the club's two players selected by teammates to receive the NFL Players Association's PULSE Awards for their outstanding work in the community. Johnson and Rey, along with the other teams' winners, have been invited to submit applications for the Byron “Whizzer” White Award and have received monetary donations for their foundations or a charity of their choice.

A panel of peers select five finalists from the pool of PULSE winners. All finalists receive additional charity donations and one will be named the 2013 Byron “Whizzer” White Award winner and receive an additional $100,000 for his charity. The winner is announced at the NFLPA’s State of the Union press conference at the Super Bowl media center in New Orleans.

    By Geoff Hobson - Posted 16 hours ago

    Ryan Glasgow is on pace to play the most snaps by a Bengals rookie defensive tackle in eight years and it works out just right since he’s backing up the guy that did it and he’s making the most of watching Geno Atkins’ every move. And Atkins (97) is apparently doing the same. He’s on pace to go to the Hall of Fame and he may shun the media and he may be stone cold quiet.
