Bengals Sign Three Try-Out Players
Bengals signed three try-out players who are all college free agents after rookie minicamp.
Slants and screens: Price puts in full day despite injury; 3 more sign
The Bengals today signed three draft picks, including second-round S Jessie Bates, fourth-round HB Mark Walton and fifth-round CB Darius Phillips.
No footnotes in rookie minicamp
The Bengals' rookie week-end minicamp that begins Friday is headlined by Ohio State alums Billy Price, Sam Hubbard and Chris Worley, but don't sluff off as footnotes returners like Kermit Whitfield, Kent Perkins, Sojourn Shelton and Jonathan Brown.
Hobson's Choice: walking the line in the draft
Bengaldom hopes their team walked the line well in last week's NFL Draft. They went offensive line in the first round and then in the last round. Mississippi's Rod Taylor waited a long time to get picked, but he may have enough versatility to stay around longer than that.
Shades of '12 draft gets defensive
It has kind of a whiff of 2012. The Bengals would love that, if this weekend's draft turned out like that one since it yielded six starters or regulars and doubled the standard of three for each draft. It was a big lift for the 2011 team's surprising play-off appearance and helped set the table for those five straight post-season runs. Like the '12 draft, this one was defined by trades.
