Adam Jones should know, with privilege comes responsibility

Jones got off easy with a one-game suspension, but will it help him finally learn a lesson about life in the NFL?

By now, most people who follow football have heard of the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. But just what is that policy, and how does it apply to the latest troubles of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones?

Jones was suspended by the NFL on Friday for the first game of the 2017 NFL season. The Bengals host the Baltimore Ravens and what’s expected to be a...

Report: Adam Jones will appeal one-game suspension

Really?

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones is planning to appeal his one-game suspension, according to Pro Football Talk.

Per source Adam Jones will appeal his one-game suspension under the personal conduct policy.

— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) July 21, 2017

The NFL announced the Week 1 suspension on Friday, which many thought was lenient considering Jones did plead guilty to obstructing official business, a second-degree misdemeanor offense and is a repeat offender, having...

Bengals roster breakdown, 90-in-90: Shawn Williams perfect example of draft, develop, retain

After a strong finish to the 2016 season, the fifth-year safety will hope a better pass rush makes his life easier. Williams is the Bengals’ strong safety of the present and the future.

After making four starts in relief for the Bengals in 2015, Shawn Williams showed enough to draw a four-year extension in 2016 and allow Cincinnati to let former standout safety, Reggie Nelson, walk in free agency. The latest example of the team’s “draft, develop, retain” philosophy, Williams did well...

Bengals salary cap breakdown: Offensive tackle

The Bengals are about to have both starting tackles still playing under their rookie contracts, making the offensive tackle position a very low-cost one.

The Cincinnati Bengals will be paying very little to their offensive tackles in 2017.

This comes after Andrew Whitworth left this offseason to sign a mammoth deal with the Los Angeles Rams. Whitworth was typically accounting for around $10 million per season with the Bengals, so losing him causes a massive dropoff in how much cap space is...

2017 Bengals Bold Predictions: Joe Mixon finishes season as third string running back

While we hope this bold prediction is untrue, it’s bold for a reason.

On the field, Joe Mixon is truly an elite talent as a running back. For the Oklahoma Sooners, he displayed great vision finding open running lanes, and possessed an innate ability to make would-be tacklers miss. He couples his blazing speed with his 6-foot-1, 228 pound size to create a complete three-down running back who is also a very good receiver out of the backfield. But thanks to an off-field incident several years...

Bengals First 50: James Brooks vs Corey Dillon

Did the “Bengals First 50” get it right, placing James Brooks ahead of Corey Dillon?

With the Bengals First 50 now revealed, we can look at who the voters ranked where, and ponder whether they got it right. Let’s take a look at the rating of James Brooks (#10) ahead of Corey Dillon (#14) among the best retired Bengals of all time, and debate whether the voters got it right.

Why James Brooks should be rated higher

Bengals' 5 camp questions: Will Ross, Mixon supplant a starter?
After watching the offense drop from seventh in the NFL in scoring at 26.2 points per game in 2015 to 24th at 20.3 points per game a year ago – and not coincidentally the win total drop from 12 to 6 – the Cincinnati Bengals bolstered that unit with the No. 9 and No....

Bengals’ Dave Lapham praises Isaac Curtis as “top 3 teammate”

Isaac Curtis was truly one of the greatest wide receivers in Cincinnati Bengals history.

Isaac Curtis was one of the best wide receivers in the history of the Cincinnati Bengals. During the course of his career, he recorded 416 catches for 7,101 yards and 53 touchdowns. Until surpassed by A.J. Green in 2016, Isaac ranked No. 2 all time in total yards behind Chad Johnson, and No. 3 in receiving touchdowns behind Johnson and Carl Pickens. For that reason, he still garners praise from Bengals...

Bengals roster breakdown, 90-in-90: Giovani Bernard

Giovani Bernard has a tall task ahead of him if he wants to make a major contribution this season in a now-crowded backfield.

Giovani Bernard has become one of the longer tenured offensive players for the Cincinnati Bengals. Last offseason, the Bengals thought highly enough of him to extend his contract before the season, so he wouldn’t hit free agency this offseason. Unfortunately, his 2016 season ended prematurely with an ACL tear at the end of the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills....

Bengals salary cap breakdown: Defensive tackle

It’s Geno and then everyone else.

Defensive tackle figures to be a strength for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2017.

Pretty much any defensive tackle group that features Geno Atkins should be among the NFL’s best, but unfortunately, that’s not always been the case. A big reason why has been Domata Peko failing to be a suitable starter alongside Atkins during the last six years.

However, Peko left this offseason to sign with the Denver Broncos, removing the $4-plus million from the salary...

Impact of Adam Jones’ suspension on Bengals cornerback unit

The Bengals’ most tenured cornerback is set to miss the first game of the season with a suspension. What does it mean for the team, especially the young cornerbacks on the roster?

While it has been expected by some for a while, on Friday, the NFL made official a one-game suspension for Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones. The veteran corner will miss Week 1 (unless he appeals and wins his appeal) for another off-field run-in this past January. Because of this, Jones will not be active...

Williams believes ’17’s defense can be just as good as ’14’s

In town to help his fellow Clemson and Daniel High School alumni with the Daniel High School Football Camp on Friday, Williams has had the opportunity to work out with the current players on the Tigers’ defense. The main conversation between the 2017 defense and Williams has been how guys like Dexter Lawrence, Christian Wilkins and Clelin Ferrell have told him they are going to be...
