Bengals running back Cedric Benson is headed to free agency and the Bengals are unlikely to re-sign him. Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden continues to sound like he's headed to running back-by-committee and spearheading it with one of the prospects that figures to be available in the first half of the draft according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. Since it's a guy that would theoretically split carries, a 205-pounder like Virginia Tech's David Wilson, a 215-pounder like Boise State's Doug Martin, and a 200-pounder like Cincinnati's Isaiah Pead would be big enough to team with 200-pound Bernard Scott, 225-pound Brian Leonard and 211-pound Cedric Peerman. "It's not a bad way to go. Keep guys fresh. They play longer, they're involved," Gruden said of the committee concept. "If something happens to one, you know you've got a guy that can come in there and be productive. Where you're not relying heavily on one guy and if something happens to him, youre like, 'Oh God, this guy doesn't have many reps.' I think it's important to have guys touch the ball, I believe, as a committee, but if you do get a big-time guy like Trent (Richardson) then I'm not opposed to giving him the ball 30 times."

There's been a lot of recent debate about how the Bengals should go about filling their number two receiver position this off-season. Marvin Lewis recently made it seem like they have no interest in signing a veteran to start opposite A.J. Green. If true, the Bengals could use a draft pick and attempt to build this offense through young core players.

If Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green are any indicator of what type of draft the Bengals are going to have with two first round picks then we might as well just hand them the AFC trophy. Both Dalton and Green were phenomenal in their rookie seasons and both give the Bengals something to finally look forward to. Most mock draft have the Bengals...

ON THE MARKET
Terrell Owens' antics on- and off-field often make him come across as acting like he's better than the common person, but the former NFL receiver is now facing a common, yet unfortunate, occurrence: foreclosure.
Big news out of Allen, Texas this weekend where a broke guy returned to the football field because, well, he has no choice. What other football job can Terrell Owens get these days besides playing indoor football in Allen, Texas? None. So there was T.O. Saturday night getting his first catch & TD in the 2nd quarter of the Allen Wranglers season debut.
Hate T.O.? This will bring...

The Scouting Combine seems like it's becoming a mockery of itself. More and more we hear how forming opinions of the workouts is a waste of time and that the biggest impact of the event happens in meetings behind closed doors. In essence, it's become nothing more than a media monster where coaches and general managers are pressed for specifics...
The second biggest need for the Bengals to address this offseason is the offensive line, particularly the guard positions. A solid run blocking guard will elevate the running game — and by extension, the entire offense — immediately. The top free agent guards this year are NO’s Carl Nicks and Baltimore’s Ben Grubbs. As I [...]
