Former Wisconsin offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler no longer has to worry about his first contract, so hes turned his attention to something to help get around Cincinnati.
The Bengals announced Friday that they had signed Zeitler to a four-year contract.
Now Zeitler, who was the 27th overall selection, is looking for his first car.
"My younger brother owned one before me. I just never really needed one or thought about it," Zeitler told Bengals.com. "The parking in Madison is crazy and expensive. It's not worth it. When I went home I'd borrow my parents. Now I'll be able to get one and pay some bills."
The Waukesha, Wis. native played in 43 games at Wisconsin, earning All-American honors from multiple publications following his senior season in 2011.
Hes the first guard ever selected by the Bengals in the first round.
Zeitler just completed his first week of voluntary work with the Bengals and is adjusting to life in the NFL on the fly.
"The big thing is communication, so I'm trying to get used to the veterans," Zeitler told Bengals.com. "(Bengals center Kyle) Cook has been great, helping me with the calls. There's a lot to get used to and I'm looking forward to spending all summer trying to get it done."

Sorry, this is not a post about women in yoga pants. Although maybe I should file that idea away for another day. (That’s a joke, honey, I swear!)
The value of the running back continues to wane in the modern NFL. The shift to the exciting (and very marketable) passing game, plus the physical toll paid by backs, is slowly draining the value from spot. And the tight end position...

Welcome to the Bengals...maybe later
I’ll spare all the cheap Bungles jailbird jokes and gibberish. Cincinnati had a remarkable run through 2007-08 that clearly illustrated their penchant for bringing on players to the roster with less-than-sterling pasts. No matter how you slice the “giving guys a chance argument,” it went to some fairly preposterous levels during a 14-month...
HBO is finding it tough going to lure a big market team to open the doors for an offseason of their "Hard Knocks" series. One NFL insider told us, there's no chance the Patriots would ever get on that list. They're probably right. The Cincinnati Bengals however, ARE reportedly one of the teams still in the mix.

Since the mid-2000s, the Bengals have had this image of being a safe haven for criminals, miscreants and other NFL players who have had legal run-ins. From 2005-2008, the amount of Bengal player arrests was staggering and it led to a number of players being suspended and/or booted from the team. It hindered the franchise's growth, as the club...
