Assessing the value Bengals received in drafting Josh Malone

The Bengals got great value by drafting Josh Malone in the middle of Round 4.

The Cincinnati Bengals went to great lengths to upgrade their offense in the 2017 NFL Draft.

After taking John Ross and Joe Mixon in the first two rounds, they added another playmaking pass-catcher in Round 4, which came in Tennessee Volunteers wide receiver Josh Malone. The Bengals were expected to add multiple receivers in this draft, and Malone was an ideal candidate on Day 3 after Ross went in the first...

Bengals snubbed in ranking of NFL front sevens

The Bengals’ front seven has three of the best players at their respective positions in the NFL.

The Cincinnati Bengals have one of the best front sevens in football.

Not everyone believes that, however. That includes NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, who just put out his ranking of the 12 best front sevens in the NFL. Somehow, Rosenthal managed to keep Cincinnati off this list.

That’s wrong on so many levels. Sure, this unit struggled to play at an elite level in 2016, but they certainly...

Bill Belichick was interested in Rex Burkhead before end of 2016 season

Belichick used his connections with another former Bengals player to pick up information about Burkhead.

Losing Rex Burkhead was one of the most disappointing parts of the Cincinnati Bengals’ 2017 offseason. Before 2016, he was one of the Bengals’ best kept secrets, only recording 13 carries for 31 yards and a touchdown, in addition to 17 catches for 143 yards and a touchdown in his first three seasons. Then, he broke out with 74 carries for 344 yards and two touchdowns in addition to 17...

KeiVarae Russell eying roster spot in crowded cornerback group

The Bengals grabbed Russell off waivers last year in hopes that some NFL coaching would help him live up to his billing as a third-round draft pick.

The football journey of KeiVarae Russell may be just getting started in the NFL, but it’s been a strange one to say the least.

The former Notre Dame star was one of the better cornerbacks in college football while enjoying a standout career with Notre Dame. But an academic scandal in August of 2014 led to him being suspended for the entire...

Bengals deep at cornerback, but how does the depth get pieced together?

How will the Bengals’ depth chart at cornerback play out? There’s a lot of talent and much uncertainty. One of the deepest position groups on the Cincinnati Bengals’ roster is cornerback, where four former first round picks will be fighting for playing time in 2017. Those players are Adam Jones, Dre Kirkpatrick, Darqueze Dennard and William Jackson III. The former two are all but locks to be starting in 2017, while the latter two will be competing all summer to earn playing time. On...

What will Bengals defensive line look like in 2017?

Who will take Domata Peko’s place on the line? And which of the younger players will see the field most?

Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap are two of the best players at their positions. And Michael Johnson is making too much to get cut or benched. But with Domata Peko now in Denver talking trash, that leaves one starting spot open on the defensive line.

There is the plethora of young players who are vying for backups spots, including Andrew Billings, Marcus Hardison, DeShawn Williams, Will...
