Scrutiny is mandatory for offense
Just the presence of the very large Cordy Glenn at left tackle at Tuesday's start of mandatory minicamp is evidence of the effort to shore up the offense since he arrived via trade for a first-rounder. But the hopes of a little-used role player also reflect how this offense may be changed by as much philosophy as looks. Remember Ryan Hewitt, the forgotten fullback?
Heads up; Bengals eye NFL edicts
While the Bengals continued to implement their off-season changes during this week's voluntary practices, the NFL owners were giving the teams some significant involuntary changes to the playbook with the passage of two major items this week in Atlanta. Exhibit A is Alex Erickson's new kick return.
Hobson's Choice: something old, a lot new

May grind for O-line
The Bengals began their second week on the field Monday without helmets in something the NFL calls "Phase 2," of the voluntary off-season workouts. But offensive linemen like Trey Hopkins (66) don't need their headgear to know new coach Frank Pollack is changing the way they think.
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.

Competition opens on O-line
The Bengals get on the field for the first time Monday for walk-through and drills and that means the offensive line is going to get another jolt of the change in culture new offensive line coach Frank Pollack is introducing to the position after drafting two players.
Rookie flashbacks as Bengals greeted with change
Both sides of the ball are learning new playbooks, so Monday's first day of voluntary offseason workouts for the Bengals was more like a rookie minicamp. Even for grizzled vets like nine-year man Vincent Rey.

Glenn officially lines up
Before the trade for Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn officially went through Wednesday, he pondered his number in Bengals' stripes as he gazed at the lockers of the offensive line during Tuesday's brisk meet-and-greet at Paul Brown Stadium. The man who wore No. 77 in Buffalo knows that is not exactly a hidden figure in Cincinnati.

Hobson's Choice: what do changes mean?
The Bengals have just gone through their biggest coaching staff change in history. What will it all bring? Teryl Austin is the new defensive coordinator.
Even before they kick off Saturday's Senior Bowl (2:30 p.m.-NFL Network), director of player personnel Duke Tobin and his staff have already re-tackled the Bengals' draft board after jetting back from the game's practices. Some small-school guys took advantage.
Down the line
MOBILE, Ala. - During the break between Tuesday's first Senior Bowl practices, Frank Pollack, the Bengals' new offensive line coach and the critical hire in Marvin Lewis' recent staff overhaul, tried to dust off the report Jim McNally wrote on him nearly 30 years ago.
