  Bengals | Rex Burkhead will be FA    Sat Jan 14, 12:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Rex Burkhead will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: Burkhead could be back with the Bengals for a cheap price. It's a strong running back class in the 2017 NFL draft, so teams in need may look there instead of low-end free agents like Burkhead.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell will be free agent    Sat Jan 14, 12:48 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell will be an unrestricted free agent Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. EST.

Footballguys view: LaFell could return to the Bengals in 2017. In his one year with the team, LaFell had arguably the second-best season of his career. He'll come with a cheap price if the Bengals want to bring him back.

  Bengals | No talks between Bengals, Kevin Zeitler    Mon Jan 9, 06:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent OG Kevin Zeitler said his agent did not have any contract talks with the Bengals during the season but hopes to re-sign with the Bengals during the offseason.

Footballguys view: One of the best guards in the game today, Zeitler is set to make quite a bit of money in free agency. We'll see if the Bengals can find a way to keep this talented player around at an appropriate (and likely high) price.

  Bengals | AJ McCarron trade inevitable?    Sun Jan 8, 09:40 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is expected to be traded during the offseason, according to beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. Dehner said it's a matter of when and who will give up the most in the trade.

Footballguys view: McCarron thinks he'll be traded, but it's not that simple. According to Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, McCarron didn't have any suitors last offseason and he doesn't think that changes this year. McCarron is seen as a starter-in-waiting, but he's only going to backup Andy Dalton in Cincinnati. If the Bengals don't trade him, McCarron will have to wait to hit free agency.

  Bengals | Brandon LaFell to have thumb surgery    Sun Jan 8, 12:49 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Brandon LaFell (thumb) will undergo surgery this offseason to repair a ligament in his thumb, but it should not affect his availability for next season.

Footballguys view: LaFell is set to be a free agent in March. This surgery shouldn't keep interested teams away from the veteran, but we can't imagine the market being white hot for his services. Instead, a return to the Bengals may be likely. LaFell had 64 catches for 862 yards and six touchdowns in his first year with the Bengals in 2016.

  Bengals | Mike Nugent will not be back with Bengals    Sat Jan 7, 01:25 PM

Free-agent PK Mike Nugent (Bengals) is not a player that the Cincinnati Bengals will look to sign this offseason, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill to serve as backup?    Thu Jan 5, 08:40 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill will likely serve as the backup running back and goal-line specialist in 2017, according to beat writer Paul Dehner Jr.

Footballguys view: It's a bit too soon to be making that proclamation. The Bengals have Gio Bernard under contract until 2020, and he'll compete with Hill for the most snaps in the Bengals backfield. Bernard is best suited as a part-time player as he's not built to take a starter's workload. We're looking at RBBC all over again for the Bengals in 2017.

  Bengals | No suitors for AJ McCarron?    Wed Jan 4, 11:32 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron wasn't the target of trade offers last year, according to head coach Marvin Lewis, and Lewis said he doesn't expect the situation to change this offseason. 'His market was better a year ago and no one inquired,' Lewis said.

Footballguys view: That's a truth for many backup quarterbacks out there. McCarron is a name some like to throw around as a potential starter, but if that was the case then some team would make a move. It's not a QB-driven league, it's a QB-desperate league and teams will look anywhere to find that starting passer. McCarron felt he would be traded this offseason, but that may not be the case. He's likely to have to wait it out and hit the open market when his rookie contract is up.

  Bengals | Domata Peko may return to Cincinnati    Wed Jan 4, 02:33 PM

  Bengals | Adam Jones arrested    Tue Jan 3, 08:37 AM

Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam Jones was arrested Tuesday, Jan. 3, and charged with assault, disorderly conduct and obstructing official business, which are misdemeanors. Later in the morning, he was charged with a felony for harassment of a member of the medical staff in the justice center with a bodily substance. The bodily substance felony charge is alleged to be for spitting on a nurse at the jail.

  Bengals | A.J. McCarron should be traded    Mon Jan 2, 05:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is preparing and expecting to be traded this offseason. McCarron has one year left on his four-year contract from his rookie season and is due $735,413 next season.

Footballguys view: McCarron is one of the most interesting backup quarterbacks out there, and it will be interesting to see if some team comes after him. There's no word on what the Bengals would want in return for the young quarterback.

  Bengals | Handful of players stay with Bengals    Mon Jan 2, 03:44 PM

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert back by camp    Mon Jan 2, 11:33 AM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said the prognosis on his back is good, and he'll definitely be back for training camp. He has a meeting with a doctor in a couple of days.

Footballguys view: Eifert had injuries problems last offseason after severely injuring his ankle in the Pro Bowl. This back injury required surgery, and hopefully he can be good to go when the Bengals kick off training camp in late July.

  Bengals | Rex Burkhead surpasses 100-yard mark    Sun Jan 1, 05:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Rex Burkhead rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17. He also caught two passes for 25 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Burkhead will be a free agent next year and he gave teams a lot to think about in this game. He showed he could be a workhorse within the context of one game and he's already a good receiving back. We'll be watching his destination closely.

  Bengals | Cody Core leads team in receiving    Sun Jan 1, 05:13 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Cody Core caught four passes for 82 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17.

Footballguys view: Core has had a few good moments in the playing time created by AJ Green's injury and outperformed college teammate Laquon Treadwell in their rookie year. He could challenge for the #3 job next year if the Bengals don't bring Brandon LaFell back.

  Bengals | A.J. Green placed on injured reserve    Sat Dec 31, 11:19 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (hamstring) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Saturday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: Reports indicated that Green was unhappy with not being able to play after working hard to get back from this hamstring injury. This decision won't make things better. The season was lost, and the Bengals didn't want to risk further injury. Green will be good to go for offseason programs, and we feel he'll be back with a vengeance in 2017.

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green hasn't been around much and hasn't been attending team meetings this week, according to players.

Footballguys view: Green must be miffed that he wasn't going to get back on the field this season after working his way back from a hamstring injury. He's signed through 2019 and has a cap hit of $13.5 million ($9 million in dead money) in 2017.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Footballguys view: We don't think Hill will play, but Rex Burkhead should be a solid start against Baltimore this weekend. The Baltimore defense doesn't allow more than 85.1 yards a game, but Burkhead should get enough carries (and a few receptions) to make him worth a start.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert undergoes surgery    Thu Dec 29, 09:10 AM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) underwent back surgery Tuesday, Dec. 28, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

Footballguys view: This back injury wasn't the only problem Eifert had this season. He had an ankle problem that required surgery and a lengthy recovery. He's played eight games this season, and Eifert has never played a full 16-game season. He needs to prove that he can stay durable and produce next season. Eifert is on the books for $4.7 million in the final year of his rookie deal in 2017.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert may need surgery    Tue Dec 27, 11:05 AM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) had surgery recommended to correct a disc problem in his back, which has become more uncomfortable in recent weeks, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Eifert has been banged up quite a bit during his pro career. This back problem wasn't his only injury this season as an ankle injury (suffered in the Pro Bowl) also held him down. Hopefully this surgery takes care of the back injury that has been problematic for him. The 2017 season isn't in jeopardy for the veteran tight end.

Footballguys view: Limited to eight games this year, Eifert finishes the season with 29 catches, 394 receiving yards and five touchdowns. Entering the final year of his contract in 2017, Eifert needs to prove that he can stay healthy and produce if he wants to get an extension with the team.
