  Bengals | Cincinnati selects John Ross    Thu Apr 27, 09:16 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals selected Washington WR John Ross with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday, April 27.

Footballguys view: We're not huge fans of this pick but we like Ross. The Bengals have so many holes elsewhere though, this is a bit of a shock. Were they enamored of the 40 time at the Combine? They need someone across from AJ Green, but this is a bit less of a need than we wanted.Ross can be a big time weapon and was very productive. He could be a deep ball threat if the Bengals can protect Andy Dalton.


  Bengals | AJ McCarron unlikely to be dealt    Tue Apr 25, 09:10 AM

Cincinnati Bengals QB AJ McCarron is unlikely to be traded because it would likely take a first-round pick to acquire him.

Footballguys view: McCarron wants to be traded so he can get a chance to be a starter. He'll be a restricted free agent in 2018, and that may be when he gets a chance elsewhere.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert unsure of readiness for camp    Mon Apr 17, 10:04 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said that while his back 'feels great' after offseason surgery, he doesn't know if he'll be ready in time for training camp. 'I don't know,' Eifert stated. 'I'll have to see how I'm feeling and go from there. I've still lost a lot of strength with the nerve issues and all of that stuff. Just working through some of that. Once I get my strength back I'll be fine.'

Footballguys view: The Bengals are going to be careful with Eifert. So long as he's ready for Week 1 of the regular season, that should be the target date for the big tight end. When healthy, he's one of the best in the league.

  Bengals | Cam Robinson visits Bengals    Mon Apr 17, 08:14 AM

Alabama OT Cam Robinson visited with the Cincinnati Bengals over the weekend.

Footballguys view: The Bengals saw their offensive line decimated in free agency as they lost two starters in Kevin Zeitler (OG) and Andrew Whitworth (LT). Robinson may be in play for them at 9th overall in the first round, but that would be a little high given his skill set.

  Bengals | Cincinnati eyeing Derek Barnett?    Sun Apr 16, 08:57 PM

Tennessee DE Derek Barnett was put through drills at his pro day by Cincinnati Bengals defensive line coach Jacob Burney while defensive coordinator Paul Guenther watched.

Footballguys view: Barnett is one of the most productive players in this draft class. He broke Reggie White's all-time sack record at the University of Tennessee, and Barnett has the technique to continue his production at the pro level. He will be a first-round pick, and the Bengals may be thinking seriously about him at 9th overall.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill wants more efficiency     Thu Apr 13, 10:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill said his goal for next season is to make his 'yards per carry higher' and to break more tackles.

Footballguys view: He might need an offensive line to do that and the Bengals don't have much of one. We like where his head is at but have doubts he's going to be able to do it. He's not a guy who will create his won yards if the line is awful.

  Bengals | Cincinnati meets with Leonard Fournette    Wed Apr 12, 02:42 PM

Louisiana State RB Leonard Fournette met with the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday, April 11.

Footballguys view: The Bengals have the 9th pick in the first round, and there's a good chance that Fournette is off the board at that time. If they wanted the talented LSU runner, they'd have to move up to get him. The Jaguars (4th) are perhaps the most likely to take Fournette in the first round.

  Bengals | Chris Smith shipped to Bengals    Tue Apr 11, 11:29 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars DE Chris Smith was acquired by the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday, April 11, for a 2018 conditional draft pick.

Footballguys view: A fifth-round pick out of Arkansas in 2014, Smith has 4.5 sacks in 19 appearances with the Jaguars. He's not a lock to be on the final roster, but Smith will compete to be a rotational rusher.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert says back feels 'great'    Tue Apr 11, 12:46 AM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (back) said that he continues to get better and his back feels great. 'I'll be ready and healthy and strong and be ready to go by the time it's go time,' Eifert stated. 'I'm close.' The 26-year-old added that he doesn't know when he'll be cleared to resume regular workouts, but he did mention he'll be ready for training camp.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine the Bengals rushing Eifert back into action. They'll likely take it easy on him as he continues to get better. By the time training camp rolls around, it sounds like Eifert will be ready for 100 percent participation.

  Bengals | Wallace Gilberry financial details    Sat Apr 8, 10:35 AM

Updating a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals DE Wallace Gilberry's contract is worth $1.4 million, including a $300,000 signing bonus and $100,000 workout bonus. He could earn an additional $6,250 for every game he is active and $500,000 through sack incentives.

  Bengals | Cincinnati meeting with Dalvin Cook    Fri Apr 7, 04:33 PM

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook is meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals Friday, April 7, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Bengals don't share other teams philosophy when it comes to dealing with players who have character concerns. Cook has first-round talent, but fumbling problems and off field issues have somewhat cooled his draft stock. He may fall to the second round of the draft.

  Bengals | Cincinnati to talk with Takkarist McKinley    Mon Apr 3, 06:07 PM

UCLA DE Takkarist McKinley is scheduled to meet with the Cincinnati Bengals this week.

Footballguys view: McKinley reminds some in the scouting community of Tamba Hali (Chiefs) because of his length and burst to get after the passer. The Bengals have the 9th-overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and McKinley could be their pick.

  Bengals | Cincinnati to meet with Joe Mixon    Sat Mar 11, 02:06 PM

Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon is scheduled to have a private visit with the Cincinnati Bengals at some point before the 2017 NFL draft.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are one of the teams in the league that doesn't really worry about character concerns (see Pacman Jones, Vontaze Burfict). Mixon was suspended for a whole season at Oklahoma after a violent incident where he broke several bones in a woman's face during an altercation. The talent is there for Mixon to be a lead back, but some teams may not want to draft him. The Bengals are not one of those teams.

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR Brandon LaFell agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Bengals Wednesday, March 8. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: LaFell must've done enough in his first year with the Bengals to get another deal. In 2016, LaFell had 64 catches for 862 yards and six touchdowns. Those numbers didn't blow anyone out of the water, and they could be looking for him to do more in 2017.
