Hopkins Signs Extension To Center Bengals Into Offseason
Bengals founder Paul Brown once said he chose Bob Johnson with the franchise's first draft pick in 1968 because the play couldn't begin without the center snapping the ball, never mind building a team. That appeared to be the same mindset Saturday when the Bengals made their first of what is expected to be a bevy of off-season moves by extending center Trey Hopkins to a three-year deal that keeps their most consistent offensive lineman this season in place.
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.
Bengals seeking draft crashers
More than veterans like 49ers safety Eric Reid are touring Paul Brown Stadium these days. 'Tis the season of the kids and the Bengals have until April 18 to interview and examine 30 prospective rookies in their building. And they all didn't go to the scouting combine, like last year's sixth-rounder Jordan Evans.
