Bengals to keep same logo with new uniforms, per report

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The “B” will stick around with the helmet.

There’s been a palpable buzz amongst Cincinnati Bengals fans ever since the team announced they’ve redone their uniforms. It’s the first time since 2004 that the team has made such a cosmetic change.

We know that the team’s striped helmet will not change with the uniforms. We know now that their logo will be kept as well.

In the latest episode of Hear That Podcast Growling, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic...

Bengals land the top WR in PFF’s newest mock draft

The Penei Sewell vs. Ja’Marr Chase debate will rage on until the NFL Draft arrives in April.

It’s not even February yet and half of the NFL seems to be looking for a new quarterback.

The clubs drafting in the top four picks of the NFL draft will have a much easier time acquiring a new passer, and the Cincinnati Bengals will be praying that at least three of them will fly off the board before they’re on the clock.

That’s precisely what occurred in a...

Some exciting rookies led the way on the Bengals’ offensive unit in 2020.

The Cincinnati Bengals’ offense was the focal point of the offseason, as the team made major springtime investments on that side of the ball. As it has been for the past couple of years, injuries have plagued the group.

Even so, there were some obvious candidates for the 2020 offensive MVP award. Cast your vote and sound off on your winner in the comments!

Bengals dish out top signing bonus in LS Dan Godsil’s futures contract

Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Godsil might be replacing a long-time veteran for the Bengals next season.

The least exciting aspect of filling out a 90-man NFL roster is signing players to what are known as futures contracts. Any player who was not on a 53-man roster is technically eligible for a futures contract, but the contract itself does not become official until the new league year begins. For this reason, younger and less prominent players are the ones who...

Creative solutions needed to solve Bengals’ pass-rushing woes

Hiring Marion Hobby was a great move for Cincinnati, but the defense still has a major question at a critical position.

There was a fake report about the Cincinnati Bengals signing Carl Lawson to a four-year, $50 million deal on Twitter.

I usually take a second to look at the account before taking a tweet seriously, but I immediately got very excited. I texted fellow Cincy Jungle writer John Sheeran immediately. “It’s fake man” he replied. I was...

A.J. Green’s 2020 season gets quantified in a stark manner

Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images

This was not the A.J. we thought we would see.

If we knew that A.J. Green was going to play every single game of the 2020 regular season, we would’ve expected a little more production from him.

In his first full season since 2017, Green finished with just 523 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 47 receptions. For perspective, Green put up 694 yards, six touchdowns on 46 receptions in just *eight* full games in 2018.

Such a drop off was not expected from...

In an order that may surprise you.

Despite the 2020 NFL season being completed on schedule, the salary cap for the 2021 league year is still expected to drop down to about $175 million. This will set up a very much unknown free agency period beginning in March.

The Cincinnati Bengals quietly have nearly 30 rostered players set to hit free agency. If the plan is to retain most of them, Cincinnati should have no problem. Most of the players are either...

The Bengals’ offense and defense both struggled this season, and like it has been in recent years, special teams was the most consistent unit on the team.

Darrin Simmons, the special teams coordinator, is by far the most experienced coach on the staff, and is one of the few whose job was never in danger this season. Simmons’ consistency shows why...

The Cincinnati Bengals’ defense was far from perfect in 2020, but there were some stars on that side of the ball this year.

Unfortunately, the Cincinnati Bengals’ defense ended the 2020 season on a historically bad note. However, there were stretches in the season wherein the unit showed significant growth from the prior year.

Even so, there were some great individual performers on that side of the ball. Cast your vote for the winner...

The units were bad, but the nominees are not!

A lot of things had to go right for the Cincinnati Bengals to field competent offensive and defensive lines. A lot of things ended up going wrong instead.

The defensive line at least looked solid on paper heading into the season. Injuries to Geno Atkins, D.J. Reader, and nearly every other interior defender was disastrous, and Carlos Dunlap’s exodus only compounded things in the wrong...

The Cincinnati Bengals didn’t just draft the player that is Joe Burrow with the top overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. They drafted the stellar young man that comes with the elite quarterback.

Burrow, who grew up in The Plains, Ohio, likely was a first-hand witness of the poverty that happens in some of the rural Ohio counties. For Athens, according...

The d-line coach was replaced with Marion Hobby. But, really, can the defense’s problems be attributed to Eason?

The Bengals recently hired Marion Hobby to be their d-line coach. And it was a good hire. But, after another bad year by the defense, we still don’t know why we’re supposed to believe firing Nick Eason will fix everything.

Cincinnati’s defensive strength was in the secondary, headed by Jessie Bates having the best performance by a safety...

It’s mock draft time in the NFL, and we already have one that will make some Bengals fans mad.

In his latest mock draft on NFL.com, Daniel Jeremiah predicts the Bengals will take a tackle, but not Penei Sewell from the Oregon Ducks.

Instead, Jeremiah has the Bengals picking Rashawn Slater from Northwestern with the fifth overall pick.
