In case you didn’t already know, the Bengals have a thing for this guy.

The Cincinnati Bengals’ affinity with former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow quickly went from presumed to heavily implied.

Initial comments from various assistant coaches back in January then turned into higher praise after interviewing the Heisman trophy winner at the NFL combine. As everyone predicted, the Bengals have been locked in on Burrow.

Per The Cincinnati Enquirer, Burrow...

Trae Waynes is hyped to still be Mackensie Alexander’s teammate

Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images The Bengals are keeping the working and personal relationships between Waynes and Alexander alive and well. It’s a rare thing for two free agents of the same position on the same team to each join the same new team. But that’s exactly the case for Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander. Waynes was the second free agent signing the Cincinnati Bengals made last week; a move that was announced after Darqueze Dennard reportedly agreed to join the...

More receiving help could be coming to Cincinnati by way of the XFL.

Before the revival of the XFL was cut short due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Houston Roughnecks wide receiver Cam Phillips was lighting up box scores almost every week. Now, Phillips is looking for work and the Cincinnati Bengals may be his next employer.

According to NFL insider Aaron Wilson, the Bengals and Miami Dolphins are interested in signing Phillips.

It’s one thing for the Bengals to spend money, it’s another thing for them to win a bidding war.

It’s a great time to be a Bengals fan.

Not only are the Bengals spending money and signing free agents, they are actually outbidding other teams.

The Bengals signed safety Vonn Bell to a 3-year, $18 million deal on Wednesday. Not only did they sign an outside free agent of this caliber, they beat the Browns and other teams in a bidding war, according to...

The former Bengals’ wide receiver stopped by the program to talk about his glory days and give his thoughts on the current state of the team.

The number 85 holds a special place in Bengaldom. Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson made it a household name a decade and a half ago, while Tyler Eifert also did it justice in his seven years of Bengals service.

But, some of their predecessors were the ones that initially made it magical. Isaac Curtis did so in the...

NFL Draft Film Room: The best throws of Joe Burrow’s historic 2019 season

Burrow made some ridiculous plays on his journey to a National Championship last season.

Joe Burrow is filthy.

Plan and simple. Burrow is a ridiculous talent.

There are however still critics. His arm strength has been questioned by some, myself included.

It’s true, he does not have quite as much arm strength as Justin Herbert or Tua Tagovailoa, but he has enough. In the grand scheme of things as long as a certain threshold is surpassed, arm strength...

In a shocking turn of events, Dennard is back out on the market.

Social distancing has made things a bit unorthodox for NFL free agency. A lot of free agent acquisitions are still unofficial because teams cannot perform medicals on some of the players they’ve agreed to terms with.

One thing’s for certain: it’s not a done deal until pen meets paper. This is exactly the case when it comes to former Bengals cornerback...
