WR TE Career
After rookie season was derailed by injuries, Bengals’ top 2017 draft pick saw more extensive action in ’18, playing in 13 games (11 starts) and tying for the team lead in receiving TDs (seven) ... Groin injury held him out of three games and limited him in others ... Caught TDs on 33.3 percent of his receptions (seven TDs on 21 catches), the highest percentage in the NFL in 2018 and tied with TE Bob Trumpy in 1976 (seven TDs, 21 catches) and WR Isaac Curtis in 1974 (10 TDs, 30 receptions) for highest TD percentage for a season in Bengals history ... Five of his seven TDs in 2018 came from inside the red zone ... Ran a 4.22-second 40-yard dash at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, considered to be a combine record.
Receivers get out of the blocks
This band of wide receivers has shown in the first two weeks of spring ball plenty of timing. As in fast times. The Bengals strength and conditioning staff has been impressed with how fast the receivers are playing, a byproduct of the fast pace stressed in coordinator Bill Lazor’s new offense.
Ross listening to think tank
Just stop thinking. That’s what the vets have been telling John Ross this spring. In anticipation of next Tuesday’s first voluntary on-field session against the defense both fellow wide receivers A.J. Green and Brandon LaFell are telling Ross to just stop thinking and start allowing his enormous talent to surface.
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.
Houshmandzadeh re-routing Ross
In a shot-gun wedding marrying the fastest wide receiver in Bengals’ history (with apologies to Isaac Curtis) to the franchise’s best route runner (with a bow to Dan Ross), John Ross and T.J. Houshmandzadeh are embarking on their own Who-Dey Cali minicamp this offseason.
