    The Cleveland Browns were a tough matchup for Jameis Winston. The first overall pick in this year's draft struggled during Tampa Bay's 31-7 preseason loss Saturday night, sacked four times and intercepted once by a Browns defense that's as healthy as it's been since training camp began with Pro Bowlers Joe Haden and Tashaun Gipson back on the field. Josh McCown finished two long drives with touchdown passes, Travis Benjamin scored on a 53-yard punt return, and the Browns never allowed Winston to establish a rhythm in what may have been the rookie's final tuneup for the regular season.

    Dawson Trusts His Instincts

    Healthy Eifert Could Have Huge Impact

    During training camp I’m often asked, “What player has been the most impressive?” In each of the last two years, my answer has been Tyler Eifert. But don’t take my word for how good the tight end looks at practice. Just listen to former Bengals wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh. The 2007 Pro Bowler served as […]

    Remember the “Margus Hunt Show” in the Bengals’ final preseason game last year?

Unfortunately, one week later, Hunt suffered the first of several injuries that limited his impact as he finished with one sack […]

    Last year while fellow 2014 first round draft picks Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Evans, and C.J. Mosley were playing starring roles as rookies, Darqueze Dennard mostly watched and waited. The 24th pick in last year’s draft made a significant contribution for Cincinnati on special teams, but only played 77 snaps on defense. For the sake […]

This is the hardest part of the job for Lewis and I know he will spend some time thinking about who his first cuts will be. I believe he has a few easy decisions but there are some tough choices for him to make as well. The Bengals currently have 85 players on their roster.

      The Bengals Rookie to watch this season is the fourth pick they made in the 2015 Draft, third round LB Paul Dawson.  The Bengals used their first two picks on offensive lineman who they can stash and let heal/develop before asking them to take on starting jobs in 2016.  So that moves us down the line to this potential third round gem.  The Bengals top defensive player LB Vontaze Burfict is still recovering from microfracture surgery in his knee.  It’s unknown exactly when he’ll be back or how he’ll peform once he is cleared to play.  This will allow the team to get an extended look…
