  Bengals | Competition for FB job close    Mon Aug 19, 02:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals FB John Conner and TE Orson Charles are in a close competition for the fullback job, but Conner may have the edge because he has been a more consistent blocker.

Footballguys view: Charles is a converted TE who can play H-back and catch a few passes out of the backfield. He's not as powerful a blocker as Conner and lacks the build to be a crushing lead blocker.

  Bengals | Orson Charles seeing time at FB    Wed May 29, 05:02 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Orson Charles has received some reps at fullback during organized team activities this offseason.

Footballguys view: Charles is a versatile player who could line up at multiple positions for the Bengals. The addition of TE Tyler Eifert (Notre Dame) in first-round of the 2013 NFL draft will limit the number of snaps Charles sees at the TE position.
