  Bengals | Giovani Bernard released    Wed Apr 7, 11:01 AM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard requested and received his release Wednesday, April 7.

Footballguys view: This move saves the Bengals $4.2 million in cap space and now Bernard gets to entertain offers from any team out there. He's been a reserve and a pass-catching specialist for most of his career, but Bernard could be more productive as a runner than some think. Before his release, there were reports that multiple teams called the Bengals to see about trading for the veteran back. It might not take long for Bernard to find a new home.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow-Ja'Marr Chase reunion?    Sat Mar 27, 12:56 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow reportedly has been lobbying the team to consider drafting his former LSU teammate, WR Ja'Marr Chase, with the fifth-overall pick.

Footballguys view: We've all heard about the Tua Tagovailoa-DeVonta Smith reunion that could happen with the Dolphins. Chase is arguably a better receiver than Smith and teaming back up with Burrow would be huge. They currently have the no.5 pick in the 2021 NFL draft and the first four picks could all be quarterbacks. That would leave Chase right there for the taking.

  Bengals | Tee Higgins over hamstring issue    Fri Mar 26, 09:27 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Tee Higgins (hamstring) is no longer bothered by the hamstring injury he suffered at the end of last season.

Footballguys view: Good news for the big-bodied wideout here. Higgins has great skill when catching passes 'above the rim' due to his size and wingspan. He's got the talent to be a reliable wide receiver for QB Joe Burrow in 2021. As a rookie in 2020, Higgins played in 15 games, catching 67 passes for 908 yards and six touchdowns. That mark was good for no.27 in WR rankings (standard-scoring leagues) last season. He's a WR2 with upside for the 2021 season.

  Bengals | Giovani Bernard to be traded?    Thu Mar 25, 02:18 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard has been inquired about in calls from 'multiple teams,' per a source Thursday, March 25. And unless he receives a restructured contract, Bernard could soon be dealt.

Footballguys view: We'd like to see Bernard get a fresh start with a new team. There's always been more there with his game, but he's worked mostly as a reserve behind Joe Mixon with the Bengals. We'll see if a team makes a move for him and what kind of role he'd be stepping into with a new start.

  Bengals | Samaje Perine staying put    Wed Mar 24, 02:02 PM

Free-agent RB Samaje Perine (Bengals) signed a two-year contract to remain with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, March 24. Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Footballguys view: Perine actually looked better than he had before in the NFL during some time with the Bengals. He's a two-down power back who can wear down a defense as the game goes on. Perine will work in the rotation behind starter Joe Mixon.

QB Ryan Finley on Friday, March 19, was traded by the Cincinnati Bengals to the Houston Texans. In exchange, the Bengals will move up an approximate spots late in the 2021 draft via an exchange of undisclosed draft picks.

Footballguys view: Finley was going to be released prior to the trade. When the Bengals selected QB Joe Burrow with the no.1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, they had no need for a young developmental quarterback like Finley.

  Bengals | Cincy frontrunner for Carl Lawson    Thu Mar 11, 05:57 PM

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent DE Carl Lawson said the Bengals are the frontrunner to sign him this offseason but believes there will be significant interest in him during free agency, according to The Athletic's Paul Dehner Jr.

Footballguys view: The Bengals could have tagged Lawson to ensure that he would return this year, but they chose not to. Corner William Jackson III was also a candidate, but he too will hit free agency. It's one of the best free agent edge classes in recent memory, so that could keep Lawson's price from going through the roof, but whether it's the Bengals or someone else, Lawson will get a life-changing deal next week.

  Bengals | Cincy looking to stretch the field?    Sun Mar 7, 08:05 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent WR Will Fuller's 'downfield speed' could make him an appealing target for a Cincinnati Bengals offense that ranked 31st in the NFL with 470 deep passing yards in 2020, according to Seth Galina of Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Fuller can take the top off the defense. He's got the speed to stretch the field and QB Joe Burrow could use a target like that. Fuller is good but he's oft-injured, so that may keep his price lower than some think.
