Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson has noticeably gained weight, according to Geoff Hobson with Bengals.com, who writes that: He's clearly bigger than last year's 267 pounds and there is some belief he's hit 280. At 6-7, Johnson had a big start last year (he gave Browns Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas all he could handle in the opener), but got worn down with some nagging injuries while leading the defensive line playing nearly 70 percent of the snaps. Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis recently admitted that they're looking to reduce Johnson's overall snap totals to prevent him from wearing down like last season: "He plays so hard. He played more snaps than anyone on our defensive front," Lewis said of Johnson. "We have to continue take some snaps off his plate so we can get that high level all the time. (Fanene and Rucker) took some (snaps), but not as many as we thought at the end of the day. Michael played through injury, he just kept playing, which showed how tough he was." One could make the assumption that Johnson is gaining weight (mass really) with the understanding that he'll have less snaps, feeling fresher later during the season, possibly becoming more productive with more energy. Johnson recently said that he and Carlos Dunlap could be the one of the league's best defensive end tandems in the league and Johnson is entering the final year under contract. Source: SBNation

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green told Bengals.com that he’s been very impressed with rookie Mohamed Sanu during OTA’s.
“Man, that guy is smooth,” said Green. “He works the middle really well. A lot of people have questioned his speed, but the guy has ‘football speed.’ It’s just like myself. A lot of people say that he didn’t run the...
To casual football fans, the Cincinnati Bengals are probably best known for missing the playoffs in 14 consecutive seasons, with nary a winning season in the mix.
It’s sometimes hard to recall that the Bengals actually played in two Super Bowls in the 1980s, and came close to winning both of them.
One of the biggest reasons the Bengals went through such a long postseason...

Owens refused to play in two upcoming road games, and also turned down an appearance at a childrens hospital, and his ownership stake in the Wranglers has been terminated. He chipped in 35 catches for 420 yards and 10 touchdowns over eight games, but the organization...
So much for the magical partnership between Terrell Owens and the Allen Wranglers. The Indoor Football League team released the receiver and pulled his ownership stake in the club because he violated his contract.
Team owner Jon Frankel reportedly said T.O. refused to play in two upcoming road games and also missed an appearance at a local childrens’ hospital.

Who does this?
Who gets released from their team for refusing to show up and play?
Terrell Eldorado Owens, that’s who.
Yup, that’s right. Terrell Owens has been cut from the Indoor Football League.
Not only did the Allen Rangers release him, they also put the lid on his stake in ownership.
Apparently, T.O. didn’t make himself available to join his team on the...
If anyone thought the sad saga of Terrell Owens as a halfwit player in a two-bit league was over when the Allen Wranglers unceremoniously cut the malcontent after he refused to play in two upcoming road games, and perhaps most egregious of all, didn’t show up for a scheduled appearance at a children’s hospital, well, [...]
Terrell Owens is considering a lawsuit against the Allen Wranglers according to TMZ.com, claiming they breached his contract when they 86'd him Tuesday. Sources close to T.O. say the former NFL superstar is mad because Wranglers execs blasted him for skipping a team appearance at a children's hospital. T.O. believes he was not required to attend the event by the terms of...
Last season, Terrell Owens tried, and failed miserably, to make an NFL comeback. Many thought that signing with the Allen Wranglers, an Indoor Football League team, for a six-figure salary that also included an ownership stake in the team was actually his career's rock bottom. If that was the case, that hold just got a little deeper.
Earlier today, the Allen Wranglers cut Owens...
LEAVENWORTH, KS - The Cincinnati Bengals’ seven year run of prison-yard supremacy at the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary came to an end this Sunday at the hands of the upstart Detroit Lions.
“The Bengals was a dynasty, no doubt. They ruled cell block D and wasn’t nobody big enough to take it from ‘em,” said Earle Macintosh, a longtime prison fight commentator serving...
Terrell Owens just keeps falling down the stairs to success. Terrell Owens was at one point a phenomenal athlete but now it seems that people can't get him away from them fast enough. Owens has been playing in the Indoor Football League hoping to bide his time until he could return to the NFL, but after being cut from his own team I doubt that anybody would even consider it...
