How much will health and wellness impact the draft, Bengaldom wonders. From all reports running back Giovani Bernard is having a terrific rehab from an ACL tear.
If Ken Anderson is the no-brainer as the Bengals’ best senior Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate (followed closely by Ken Riley), then Willie Anderson as the best right tackle of his time takes his rightful claim as the club’s best modern day Hall of Fame candidate.
The InSideOut Initiative, in partnership with the Bengals, the NFL Foundation and the Ohio High School Athletic Association, hosted an event for local school athletic officials at Paul Brown Stadium on Tuesday.
Ken Anderson, the Bengals all-time leading passer, turns 68 later this week on Wednesday and in what has become an annual rite of the Ides of February we honor his birthday building his case for the Pro Football Hall of Fame with ten stats. Some you’ve seen. Some you haven’t. They come 10 days after Kurt Warner became the 26th quarterback voted into the Hall of Fame.
Welcome to the earliest Bengals.com Media Mock Draft in history. It’s way too early to make a sane call here. Remember, there are 75 days until they have to make this pick. This is purely fantasy football. So try the de-caf. But we couldn’t wait. Neither could you:
The chair recognizes the readers in another Who Dey hearing in the august (and September and October ...) halls of Bengaldom. What late-round gems twinkle? Cody Core (above), last year's sixth-rounder, is trying to shine in '17.
When Shayne Graham said good-bye to the Bengals seven years ago, he had never really said hello. But when he retired this week, he had experienced enough to do both in graciously and candidly stepping away with many more points (1,260) than regrets (a Frank Sinatra few) as the Bengals’ most accurate kicker ever and tenth all-time.
A grateful and humble Shayne Graham, the most accurate kicker in Bengals history, announced his retirement Monday to end a career that spanned 15 seasons and 10 teams.
HOUSTON - A quick stroll through the notebook before Sunday’s game (6:30 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 19) between the Patriots and Falcons. When the clock hits 00:00, there’ll be a new defending champ and the Bengals will be tied for first in the AFC North at 0-0:
HOUSTON - Lightning is about to strike twice in the Super Bowl. It could help illuminate how rich rookie free agency has been for teams like the Bengals and Patriots with players like former Cincinnati tight end Matt Lengel playing Sunday.
HOUSTON - The two reasons the Bengals shouldn’t blow it all up checked into radio row here Thursday at the Super Bowl. Wide receiver A.J. Green is working for Snickers and quarterback Andy Dalton is waving the hometown banner for Houston, but they’re both looking longingly at how Julio Jones and Matt Ryan have led the Falcons into Sunday’s (6:30 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 19) big game against the Patriots and how their team is not far off.
HOUSTON - What better place to talk Bengals quarterbacks past and present than during this Super Bowl week in the town where Andy Dalton grew up and where New England’s Tom Brady tries to set an NFL quarterback’s most cherished record with a fifth Lombardi Trophy in Sunday’s game (6:30 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 19) against the Falcons. Down here, old-time quarterbacks still talking into microphones like the Bengals’ own Boomer Esiason and Steelers Hall-Famer Terry Bradshaw weigh in.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton engineered 10 points to break a 7-7 tie and left end Carlos Dunlap lobbied for teammate Geno Atkins to be MVP after Atkins' 1.5 sacks helped lift the AFC in Sunday night's Pro Bowl.
MOBILE, Ala. - Whether it’s at wide receiver or running back, it’s no secret the Bengals seek to supplement an offense looking to put more juice around Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green and seam-buster Tyler Eifert at tight end. Saturday’s Senior Bowl (2:30 p.m.-NFL Network) is a pretty good place to look.
MOBILE, Ala. - As expected the Bengals on Thursday re-signed veteran Randy Bullock for two years but all indications are they’re going to keep looking for enough help to stage a training camp kicking derby.
MOBILE, Ala. - The subject is edge pass rushers. The Bengals need one and if there aren’t any high first-round possibilities here at the Senior Bowl this week then there is a raft of possibilities in the later rounds. It's a good thing they come in all shapes and sizes because they all don't look like Pro Bowler Carlos Dunlap.
MOBILE, Ala. - One of the highlights of the Senior Bowl if you’re with the Bengals is you get to chat on site with The Mayor (AJ McCarron) and The CEO (Wallace Gilberry), two of the more popular personalities to come out of the Gulf Coast.
MOBILE, Ala. - The kids are watching. They’re always watching. Kids on both sides of the ball here at the Senior Bowl. North and South. They know the Bengals.
MOBILE, Ala. - The Bengals are hoping they can wrap up a deal for veteran kicker Randy Bullock any day and whether that precludes any training camp derby won’t be answered as they peruse two of the next generation this week at the Senior Bowl.
MOBILE, Ala. - Whenever the Bengals have made a decision on a kicker for the long haul in the Marvin Lewis Era, they’ve always opted for the recycled veteran in the Shayne Graham and Mike Nugent mold before they ended their careers in Cincinnati as the club’s second- and third all-time leading scorers.
The odyssey to orange has begun. The personnel department has been grinding all fall, but when the Bengals coaches and scouts descend on the Senior Bowl Monday it marks the beginning of the final push for the April 27-29 draft.
It is now 35 years, six presidents, and a dynasty ago since they met on the 1 and history and from the confines of Charlie 4 Seasoning Inc., in Sugarland, Texas, former Bengals running back Charles Alexander had just one question from across the goal line of generations.
Carlos Dunlap got the call on Tuesday and Andrew Whitworth got the call on Wednesday to come off the bench for the AFC in the Pro Bowl, but it puts them both on the front line of Bengals history.
Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap has been named to a roster spot for the Pro Bowl, the NFL announced today. Dunlap, a second alternate in December’s Pro Bowl voting, replaces Houston DE Jadeveon Clowney, who is unable to participate due to injury.
During a span of 28 days in 2015 Marvin Lewis watched the Bengals beat three of the teams in last weekend's divisional games. But he won't talk about how close they are to those Bengals while looking for A.J. Green and Geno Atkins to be more vocal.
With the Bengals taking a look at the No. 9 pick in the draft, the discussion is about value. Where do they fall when it comes to taking a running back so high as Giovani Bernard (above) comes off ACL surgery?
Suddenly, Marvin Lewis is getting ready to play a quarter of the upcoming schedule against teams run by his former assistants. Lewis and Kansas City's Andy Reid have spawned the most current NFL head coaches.
Bengals president Mike Brown and his family received the Pillar Award for Community Service’s Kent Clapp CEO Leadership Award.
At the end of his first season as Bengals offensive coordinator Ken Zampese is in the process of reviewing all 1,087 plays of the 2016 season. But it’s already clear what he’s going to end up emphasizing in the offseason. He's hoping the rise of rookie receivers like Tyler Boyd teaming with the return of healthy veterans solve the points puzzle.
At the end of his third season as the Bengals defensive coordinator, Paul Guenther found himself running one of the NFL’s hottest units after they shot through the second half of the season allowing the fewest points next to only the Patriots in the final eight games. He sat down with Bengals.com this week to talk about how they can keep it going into next season, including giving youngsters like Andrew Billings a long look.
The season has been done barely a week but the Bengals are getting good early vibes from their players on the mend and should have virtually every one in place when they report for voluntary workouts. They've got the right injury formula, but they're trying to avoid the wrong injury.
If you’re the Bengals.com Assistant Coach of the Year this week, you are miserable. After working seven seasons for Andy Reid in Philadelphia, James Urban is heading into his seventh season coaching Marvin Lewis’ wide receivers in Cincinnati and that means this is just the third time he hasn’t been to the postseason. So the analysis begins.
No cool words yet, Marvin Lewis says. No T-Shirt motto to the printer just now. But as he began his 15th season coaching the Bengals, Lewis left no doubt that he is driven to find out what drove his Bengals from the ranks of the postseason for the first time in six years and just for the second time since the division sweep of 2009.
Catching up with the Bengals on Monday in healing and dealing as they leave Paul Brown Stadium until the off-season conditioning program starts in April. A.J. Green, AJ McCarron, Tyler Eifert, Kevin Zeitler, and Cedric Ogbuehi among the subjects.
As he packed up his locker on Monday, AJ McCarron wore an Alabama sweatshirt and hat. He was obviously looking forward to seeing if his alma mater would beat Clemson later that night for college football’s national championship.
NFL Network's Mike Garafolo weighs in on why the University of Tennessee's Derek Barnett is someone who we should take notice of going into the combine.
NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah reviews his top 50 prospects heading into the NFL Combine but points out the majority live on the defensive side of the ball.
