Jeff Driskel broke his arm while lining up at wide receiver in practice

Bengals quarterback Jeff Driskel injured himself while lining up at wide receiver in practice leading into Week 17. The Bengals are losing AJ McCarron this offseason, which means for the time being, they have just one healthy quarterback on the roster. That’s because Jeff Driskel is out with an arm injury right now. Driskel injured his arm in the final week of practice in the regular season, and now we know what exactly happened. According to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer,...

Vikings expected to be in the mix for AJ McCarron

AJ McCarron has never been a starting quarterback in the NFL, but the 27-year-old is expected to be pursued like one now that he has won his grievance against the Bengals and will become a free agent. Several teams are expected to have interest in McCarron, including one that has some tough decisions to make with its own quarterbacks. Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press expects the Vikings to have interest in McCarron if they choose to let Case Keenum walk in free agency. Minnesota...

What is the Bengals’ biggest free agency decision?

The Bengals don’t have a lot of high profile free agents, but their biggest free agent decision, according to ESPN, will probably be their toughest. It is no secret that the Bengals shouldn’t be worried about many, if any of the players from their 2018 free agency class leaving this offseason. Most of the players are ones that have failed to sustain success over their careers with the Bengals, and it’d be beneficial for both sides to move on. There is one name though that keeps...

Bengals 2018 salary cap casualty candidate: Defensive lineman Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson has had a solid career, but might he be cut in an effort to create more cap space? “Breaking up is hard to do”, as they say. Running an NFL team is a balance of making tough business decisions, while also caring for players who have helped your squad. Professional football can be cutthroat, but these are the livelihoods of men and their families. Declining play and expensive contracts, players who present problems off of the field, or can’t get out of the trainer’s...

Adam Jones and Michael Johnson listed as cut candidates by NFL.com

Will the Bengals cut ties with their aging veterans on defense? The Cincinnati Bengals have some big roster decisions to make this offseason.

Bengals Bytes (2/17): Giving back with soup donation

The Bengals gave back to the community by giving back more than 24,500 cans of soup.

It's time to sell Andy Dalton to the highest bidder
If Dalton plays like ‘Average Andy’ this upcoming year, he will be looking for $25-30 Million 2019 . If you deal him now you could walk into off season with two first round draft picks. You may even have A.J. McCarron on the roster in 2018. That would give the Bengals plenty of cap space to sign Carlos Dunlap, Geno Atkins and Tyler Eifert. It would give...
