  Bengals | Door open for Tyler Eifert's return    Sat Jan 20, 01:01 PM

Contrary to a previous report, Cincinnati Bengals team president Mike Brown wants impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert to return in 2018, although Brown admits any deal he offers Eifert will take into account the fact 'he's literally played less than half the time' due to all of the injuries he has suffered throughout his pro career.

Footballguys view: When healthy, Eifert can be a dominant force for the Bengals offense. He's missed just a little over half of the games in his pro career (41-of-80) and has never played a full 16-game season. A first-round pick in 2013, Eifert is set to hit the open market in 2018.

  Bengals | Tyler Eifert likely finished in Cincy    Fri Jan 19, 09:23 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer gives Eifert a 10 percent chance of re-signing with the Bengals.

Footballguys view: Eifert has the potential to be great when healthy, but he's struggled to stay healthy and has never played a full 16-game season. Coming off his second back surgery in two years, the market is likely to be cool for Eifert's services.

  Bengals | Jeremy Hill likely gone    Fri Jan 19, 11:51 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Jeremy Hill is likely to leave via free agency, in the opinion of beat writers Jim Owczarski and Paul Dehner Jr.

Footballguys view: Hill underwent ankle surgery last November, ending his 2017 season. He'll be healthy for the offseason as he searches for a new team. Hill is not a feature back, but he could work as a power back for a team in need of help near the goal line.

  Bengals | Cincinnati hires two assistant coaches    Fri Jan 12, 05:10 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have hired former Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt as their new quarterbacks coach. The team also hired Miami Dolphins assistant secondary coach Daronte Jones as their new cornerbacks coach.

Footballguys view: The Bengals had OC Bill Lazor coaching the QBs and coordinating the offense for most of last season. Van Pelt will free up Lazor to just focus on running the offense. He coached the Packers QBs for the last four years, but his contract was not picked up and Van Pelt found himself out of a job. Not for long though, as now Van Pelt will work to get the most out of Bengals starter Andy Dalton.

  Bengals | Cincinnati hires Frank Pollack    Thu Jan 11, 04:22 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have hired former Dallas Cowboys offensive line coach Frank Pollack as their new offensive line coach, according to a source.

Footballguys view: As bad as their offensive line was, anything would be an improvement for the Bengals. The Cowboys line a top unit during Pollack's three years in the job, but he had multiple first round picks. Maybe he can convince the Bengals to invest the same in their line, because the talent they have was found wanting this year.

  Bengals | A.J. Green bows out of Pro Bowl    Thu Jan 11, 11:29 AM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (knee) will not play in the Pro Bowl due to a knee injury. The injury requires rest, and he will not miss any time in spring workouts.

Footballguys view: Green had one of this worst seasons since entering the league in 2011, and the other two shakier ones were due largely to injury. This year was due to a mostly incompetent offense, though. We think he will bounce back next season, however that could depend heavily on whether or not the offense - especially the line - gets fixed.

  Bengals | Teryl Austin chooses Bengals    Mon Jan 8, 03:44 PM

Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is joining the Cincinnati Bengals as their new defensive coordinator Monday, Jan. 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Austin was getting quite a bit of interest as a defensive coordinator candidate across the league. He inherits a Bengals defense that has good talent at every level. If healthy, the unit should perform better than it did in 2017.

  Bengals | Bill Lazor staying in Cincy    Wed Jan 3, 11:12 AM

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Bill Lazor re-signed with the Bengals Wednesday, Jan. 3, on an undisclosed deal.

Footballguys view: Lazor got the job as OC for the Bengals when they moved on from Ken Zampese after two weeks of the 2017 season. He gets the same two-year deal that Marvin Lewis got from the Bengals. They didn't have a great year offensively, and the team has many improvements to make on that side of the ball. Lazor's biggest challenge will be getting better/improved play from RB Joe Mixon in 2018.

  Bengals | Marvin Lewis signs extension    Tue Jan 2, 05:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has signed a two-year contract extension running through the 2019 season. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: What a long, strange trip it's been. Lewis was supposed to be gone as the head coach, and there were rumblings about him taking on a different role with the team. Now, he's back to where he never left...and the Bengals are in the same boat they've been in with Lewis.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Carl Bradford, PK Jon Brown, LB Connor Harris, OT Javarius Leamon, OG Oni Omoile, TE Scott Orndoff, CB Sojourn Shelton, SS Robenson Therezie and WR Kermit Whitfield were signed to Reserve/Future contracts Monday, Jan. 1.

Footballguys view: Orndoff signed with the Steelers as a UDFA in 2017 out of PITT. The big tight end caught 58 passes for 897 yards and 13 touchdowns during his college career. He's spent time with three teams in 2017 (Steelers, Lions, Bengals).

  Bengals | Marvin Lewis wants to come back    Mon Jan 1, 06:57 AM

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis told reporters following the Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens that he would like to come back as coach in 2018, but nothing has been finalized.

Footballguys view: The Bengals were rumored to be interested in getting Jay Gruden back from Washington. They're likely to finally go in a different direction at the head coaching position, but there has also been rumblings that Lewis could stay in some front office role. Lewis' contract expired following the conclusion of the season, and there had been talk that Lewis might leave the job on his own.

  Bengals | Week 17 game recap for Bengals    Sun Dec 31, 08:42 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton completed 23-of-44 passes for 222 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens. RB Joe Mixon ran 18 times for 96 yards, RB Giovani Bernard rushed 10 times for 62 yards while adding six receptions for 18 yards, and WR Tyler Boyd led the charge with five catches for 91 yards and a touchdown. WR Tyler Kroft found the end zone twice, finishing with 53 yards on six receptions. WR A.J. Green rounded things out with two grabs for 17 yards.

Footballguys view: Boyd finally showed some return on the second round pick the Bengals invested in him last year. The upset will be a bittersweet moment as the possible swan song for Marvin Lewis. Stay tuned.

Cincinnati Bengals RBs Joe Mixon (ankle) and Giovani Bernard (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

Footballguys view: We think it more likely that Bernard end up in a meaningless game than Mixon, who is more of the future. Bernard should have low-end RB2 production, as he will combine some receiving yards with his ground work.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard rushed 23 times for 116 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions and he added seven receptions for 52 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Bernard was outstanding in relief of Joe Mixon, as the Bengals running game showed signs of life in the second half of the year. Mixon was drafted as an everydown back, but Bernard's performance while Mixon has been sidelined should merit more work next year.
