  Bengals | Ryan Finley met with CIN    Wed Apr 17, 01:20 PM

North Carolina State QB Ryan Finley met with the Cincinnati Bengals leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Bengals may be looking to add a quarterback in the 2019 NFL draft. Finley might be a third-round pick in the draft and he's certainly a developmental prospect.

  Bengals | John Ross to get fresh start under new coach    Tue Apr 16, 09:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross will get a clean slate to prove himself under new head coach Zac Taylor, who called Ross 'electric' during his college days.

Footballguys view: There is no doubt, Ross has been a bust for two seasons with the Bengals. He's barely played (only appearing in 5 games) due to injury and only has 21 catches for 210 yards as a pro. Now, Ross did have a whopping seven receiving touchdowns in 2018 and that's a positive sign. Dynasty wise, we have not yet given up on Ross if the bench is deep enough. We'll see if he can stay healthy and produce at an expected level with this new Bengals staff in 2019.

  Bengals | Parris Campbell visiting Bengals    Mon Apr 15, 08:11 AM

Ohio State WR Parris Campbell is visiting with the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, April 15.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have the 11th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft and Campbell could be an option for them there. He's a quick, speedy and athletic playmaker who can score anytime he touches the ball. Campbell is not a finished product as a receiver but his athletic profile makes him an interesting player to project in the pros.

  Bengals | A.J. Green to take it easy    Sat Apr 13, 09:39 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) will likely be eased into action during OTAs, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com.

Footballguys view: Green made it through just nine games in 2018. The team is wise to ease him back into action as he continues to recover. As we get towards training camp, Green should be near full speed. We should also see him extended some time before the start of the regular season as Green is entering the final year of the contract he signed in 2015.

  Bengals | C.J. Uzomah ready to thrive?    Fri Apr 12, 12:47 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah was an offseason re-signing priority for the team as a highly-versatile player, and one beat reporter believe he could 'thrive' under the team's new coaching staff.

Footballguys view: Uzomah finished the 2018 season with 43 catches, 439 receiving yards and three touchdowns. That was good enough to be the no.19 fantasy tight end in standard-scoring leagues. He'll be a TE2 once again for Fantasy GMs in 2019.

  Bengals | Andy Dalton eyeing camp    Thu Apr 11, 09:59 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton (thumb) said he will be ready to go when practices begin, and he has already been practicing the formations for head coach Zac Taylor's offense.

Footballguys view: It's a make-or-break season for Dalton in 2019. His current contract runs through the 2020 season but the team wants to see how he operates in the new offense before talking about an extension.

  Bengals | A.J. Green takes part in workouts    Thu Apr 11, 09:54 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) participated in the start of voluntary workouts.

Footballguys view: Good news for Green, especially considering the Bengals are installing a new offense under new head coach Zac Taylor. Green should be the centerpiece of the Bengals passing game. Coming off an injury-shortened 2018 season, Green should be a WR1 for Fantasy GMs so long as he can stay healthy.

  Bengals | Big runs common for Joe Mixon     Sun Apr 7, 11:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon finished second in the NFL with 23 runs of 15 or more yards in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: The Bengals offensive line did a good job of opening holes for Mixon. He was third in the league in 2018 with 722 rushing yards before contact. Mixon was a RB1 for Fantasy GMs last season and should post similar numbers in 2019.

  Bengals | Mark Walton let go    Sat Apr 6, 01:06 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Mark Walton was waived Saturday, April 6.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Walton has been arrested three times in 2019 so far. His most recent arrest happened last week for carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession, and reckless driving. He's a talented runner but this off-field trouble was too much for the Bengals....'nuff said. Walton will struggle to find another chance in the league when all these legal troubles are behind him.

  Bengals | Josh Allen visiting Bengals    Fri Apr 5, 10:19 AM

University of Kentucky LB Joshua Allen is visiting the Cincinnati Bengals Friday, April 5.

Footballguys view: Allen is one of the best pass rushers in the 2019 NFL draft. There is no way he's going to be on the board when the Bengals select at no.11 overall. If they want Allen, the Bengals would have to move up into the top five...and that may not be high enough to get him.

  Bengals | Mark Walton arrested in Miami    Thu Apr 4, 12:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Mark Walton surrendered to North Miami-Dade police on Thursday, April 4, and will face felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving, according to a Miami Herald report. The arrest stemmed from a high-speed car chase that occurred March 12 and ended with Walton fleeing from the police on foot.

Footballguys view: It's the third time Walton has been arrested this year. Walton was a fourth-round pick of the Bengals in the 2018 NFL draft. He has natural talent as a runner but these off-field issues are likely to get him released by the Bengals.

  Bengals | Cincy open to A.J. Green extension    Wed Mar 27, 08:10 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green is a candidate for a contract extension if the two sides are able to agree on his price range, according to owner Mike Brown.

Footballguys view: Green is in the final year of his contract in 2019. He's got a cap hit of $15.1 million this season with $3 million remaining in dead money. His played in only nine games in 2018, but when healthy there is no doubt that Green is one of the best in the game at his position. We should see him get quite the pay raise on any sort of new contract he agrees to with the Bengals.

  Bengals | No extension for Andy Dalton yet    Wed Mar 27, 08:07 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton will not receive a contract extension this offseason because the team wants to see how he plays in 2019, according to owner Mike Brown.

Footballguys view: Dalton's current contract goes through the 2020 season. The team has a new head coach in Zac Taylor, and we have to see how Dalton performs in this new system. Dalton should consider 2019 a make-or-break season for his career with the Bengals.

  Bengals | Preserving Joe Mixon a priority    Tue Mar 26, 12:17 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon will need to be kept fresh and healthy for later in the season, and that likely will entail some early-season rest and platoon work, new head coach Zac Taylor said Tuesday, March 25, at the NFL owners' meetings. Taylor's experience on the Los Angeles Rams' staff last season and seeing lead back Todd Gurley wear down late could be instructive for Taylor's handling of Mixon, according to one NFL beat reporter.

Footballguys view: That's cool and all, but Mixon is a runner who thrives on touches. They will monitor his touches but it's not like they'd be any better taking touches away from Mixon if they can help it. He needs to be the centerpiece of their offense in 2019.

Footballguys view: Wynn is a nice end of the roster player with strong special teams contributions and the ability to play defensive tackle on passing downs and defensive end on run downs. He'll be quality depth for the Bengals.
