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."
Shawn Williams Waits For New Role After "Roller Coaster" Offseason
No one has ever been more reliable in Bengaldom than safety Shawn Williams, but even the steadiest of all Bengals has had trouble finding his footing during this slippery slope offseason. He's not certain of his new role, but he's had several through the years.
Shawn Williams Shakes It Off Because The Field Is "My Happy Place'
Shawn Williams, the Bengals' indestructible safety, may have more nicknames than injuries. But he's all good for Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnati's Local 12) against the Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium because, he says, "My legs still work." Football won't let him come off the field. "It's my escape from the rest of the world," Williams says.

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.
Quick hits: Lewis says he'd like to be back; Boyd silences city; Take a bow, Mr.Prez
BALTIMORE _ Marvin Lewis says he wants to come back, but it's more complicated than just an offer ... Tyler Boyd thought there was a penalty after he silenced the M&T Bank Stadium crowd with the winning TD ... It was Andy Dalton's third fourth-quarter comeback in four seasons in Baltimore ....
Defense throws it back to look ahead
This is how it used to look back in the day. The NFL's best quarterbacks would waltz into Paul Brown Stadium and leave with not only a loss, but a bruised passer rating courtesy of the Double A Gap blitz and a Velcro secondary. In Sunday's 26-17 win over Matthew Stafford's Lions the Bengals defense looked to the future with a blast from the past.
Media Roundtable: Bengals try to cool Zim's Vikes
Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis hopes to remain unbeaten against his former coordinators in Minnesota Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnati's Local 12) while Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer hopes to finish off a season sweep of his Bengals coaching colleagues.
