Today the Bengals moved to assure depth along the offensive line in the wake of their short rental of place kicker Josh Brown.

To make room for Brown, the Bengals had released Center Jeff Faine.

The Bengals have signed kicker Josh Brown to replace the injured Mike Nugent (calf) in Week 14 against the Cowboys.Fantasy Spin:Brown kicked for the Rams in 2011-12, making 21-of-28 field goals.

Adam “Pacman-Jones has always represented every negative cliché that has been associated with the NFL.
He was the kid that wasted his elite talent. He was the kid got into legal trouble.
He became the man that wasted his money making-it-rain in the club. He’s been the free agent that nobody ever wanted because of his bad attitude.
We can go on and on and on. Yet somehow life...

Dallas Cowboys (6-6) at Cincinnati Bengals (7-5)
Someone check me for a concussion because I like the Bengals this week. It’s not that the Bengals are bad or anything, but I just haven’t picked them yet this year. It’s nothing against them or anything and I haven’t really been missing out as they’re just 6-6 ATS, but for whatever reason, I’ve never seen Cincinnati as...
After getting whacked in the knee by my comrade DonnieRedboy yesterday (you’re still my bro, though!), I got to thinking about his comment that Dalton’s play in San Diego. He said: “The first thing that went wrong in SD was Dalton. He was not playing like the top caliber QB that he has been.” True, he did not look as sharp as he had in the previous three wins. That’s mainly...
