Bengals Begin Weight Room Watch
Carlos Dunlap, about to become the Bengals' greatest sacker of all-time (he needs 2.5), might have just pulled off the most resourceful moves of his career by simply finding a patch of grass to train on during this oddest of offseasons. When he returns to Paul Brown Stadium next week, Dunlap is going to see a much different weight room. First of all, he'll see two of them.

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.

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.

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.
