Bengals Emerge Resolved From Emotional Meeting
Shawn Williams, one of the captains just emerging from one of his most emotional days as a Cincinnati Bengal, knew it had to be done. "We had a meeting airing it all out," said Williams of a day head coach Zac Taylor set aside for feelings instead of football. "The raw, uncut truth of feelings ... It was very open. To hear people express the way they're feeling, it was hard. But it's what's needed."

But offensive line coach Jim Turner could care less where he was born or when he was born or how the fates conspired to get him here.
