  UFL | Maurice Purify joins Omaha    Wed Jul 13, 01:25 AM

  Bengals | Want to see Antonio Bryant play before deciding on WRs    Thu Aug 5, 02:35 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals want to see how WR Antonio Bryant (knee) performs in the final three preseason games before they decide which wide receivers they will release, reports Geoff Hobson, of Bengals.com. WRs Jerome Simpson and Maurice Purify are making the decision harder for the team because they are performing well during training camp.

Footballguys view: Both Simpson and Purify have the talent to stick around in the NFL, but one could be bounced from the roster if Bryant's knee is good to go.

  Bengals | Purify having a strong week    Sun Aug 9, 05:28 PM

Joe Reedy, of the Cincinnati Enquirer, reports Cincinnati Bengals WR Maurice Purify is having a strong week of practices. Purify finished the team's mock game Saturday, Aug. 8, with three receptions for 63 yards.

Footballguys view: Purify looked like a man among boys at times during his college career at Nebraska. He will have a tough time making the final 53 man roster because the Bengals are deep at WR, but he is still a name to remember in deep dynasty leagues if his development continues without any of the character issues that plagued him in college.
