Come Together: Bengals Rookies, Veterans Get To Know Each Other
Helping the young players get acclimated to life in the NFL as quick as possible is a dynamic all 32 NFL teams face. Fortunately for the Bengals, the veterans have developed a path to assist the rookies on-and-off the field and inevitably, team success.
Record sack race underway
Carl Lawson is one of the many guys happy to see voluble and valued veteran left end Carlo Dunlap surface for this week’s mandatory minicamp. Lawson, who usually sets up at right end on passing downs, nearly broke Dunlap’s rookie sack record last season and he likes the competition. And on Tuesday he offered a challenge to a guy he calls “like an older brother to me."
Dunlap's return spices emerging pass rush
Carlos Dunlap, the second most prolific sacker in Bengals history, showed up at Paul Brown Stadium for the first time this spring in time for Wednesday’s voluntary practice. But he's taking a backseat to no one in his pledge to lead an emerging pass rush in sacks this season.
Making all the snaps count
After Thursday’s voluntary work on the field, Michael Johnson volunteered again and caught a flight headed to Charleston, S.C. A re-union loomed with his decade long book-end on the Bengals defensive line at Carlos Dunlap’s expanded youth football camp, an idea that Dunlap plucked from his buddy like one of his fourth-quarter game-breakers.
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.
Home is sweet for Hubbard
When Sam Hubbard was a student at Cincinnati’s Moeller High School and hadn’t committed to play football at Ohio State, he called Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer and wound up speaking to Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis as well. You wouldn't believe what happened five years later.
Happy New Year. The first day of the NFL’s economic calendar for the 2018 season is Wednesday. But the two weeks leading up to it have been more like Mardi Gras. Which means there is just enough volatility in the market that you don’t quite know what is going to happen to the Bengals this week.
