Found June 07, 2012 on PPR Fantasy Football:
The Cincinnati Bengals made every fan question their reality and whether or not they were dreaming when they decided to pull the trigger, trading disgruntled quarterback Carson Palmer to the Oakland Raiders on October 18, 2011. What really made us all pinch ourselves was what we got for him. The Bengals got a first-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft, which they used on cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, and they got a conditional pick in the 2013 NFL draft, which could become a first-round pick if the Raiders made it to the AFC Championship game in 2011. According to Steve Corkran, the Raiders blogger for the Contra Costa Times, the Bengals will be stuck with an extra second-round pick in 2013, which cannot be upgraded to a first, no matter what happens in 2012. Follow @CorkOnTheNFL Steve Corkran @CorkOnTheNFL #Raiders final compensation for Carson Palmer trade is 2013 second-round draft pick. Can’t upgrade to first-rounder, per Raiders official. 29 minutes ago via Twitter for iP...

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict Is Making An Impression

Vontaze Burfict. Undrafted free agent signed by the Cincinnati Bengals hours after the 2012 NFL draft. Somewhat controversial from his sloppy predraft process, which transformed early-round projections into a not-drafted-at-all reality. Beyond that. Nothing. Well let me rephrase. Nothing controversial. In fact most of the time that Burfict is participating during Cincinnati’s...

NFL Rookies Under The Radar: Bengals TE Orson Charles

Bengals rookie tight end Orson Charles could turn out to be a real steal for the Bengals. Today is the 1st in a series of 10 Rookies who may be considered Underdogs but I think can be contributors or in some cases very good NFL players.

Looking At Linebacker

With seven legitimate options to make up the linebacker corps and only six spots available, the Bengals will be forced to make a tough decision at some point. That decision may get delayed until October with a possible suspension looming over Dontay Moch, but it will have to come at some point. Of course, Thomas Howard and Manny Lawson are locks, being starters. And with Brandon...

Former Bengal Bobbie Williams says he’s 85%

Bobbie Williams has been a long time Bengal and was a starter as recently as last year, starting in 9 games and missing 7 with injury. Williams had ankle surgery in December and says he’s about 85% right now. However, even though Williams played well last year, he turns 36 in September. The Bengals added two new starters at guard this offseason, Travelle Wharton as a free agent...

Raiders’ Stefen Wisniewski played all of his rookie season with a torn labrum

A 2nd round pick in 2011, Stefen Wisniewski didn’t have the best rookie year for the Oakland Raiders in 2011, but he had an excuse. According to a report by the Oakland Tribune this season, Wisniewski played the entirety of last season with a torn labrum. Moving to his natural position, center, and with new offensive coordinator Greg Knapp installing a zone blocking scheme he fits...

NFL Mt. Rushmore-Cincinnati Bengals

Every NFL Franchise has it’s own pantheon of football gods.

This is part of a 32 article series where I tell you who I would put among that elite group. For this, it’s Mt. Rushmore. 4 players only....

An Early Schedule Breakdown: Part 3

I hope you have enjoyed this look through this year’s schedule so far. While nothing is certain in June, I think it shows that there is good reason for optimism that the Bengals will make a repeat showing in the playoffs when January rolls around. The Bengals do not face an AFC North opponent in the third quarter of the season. Instead, they tackle an NFC East team, then a trio...

Scout: Veteran RBs available for a reason

The continuing availability of some free agent tailbacks like Cedric Benson, Ryan Grant and Jackie Battle has been a source of puzzlement in this space for some weeks now, but one AFC pro scout who has done some homework on the three did shed some light on the inability of the first of that trio to locate a new team so far. Benson, the scout emphasized, has put the ball on the...

Ravens sign Bobbie Williams

The Ravens have found a left guard, sort of. In a press release, the team announced they have agreed in principle guard Bobbie Williams to a two-year contract. Terms were not disclosed. Williams had been with the Cincinnati Bengals since 2004 and was originally drafted by the Eagles in 2000. Presumably Williams will battle with Jah Reid and Kelechi Osemele for the left guard spot...

Ochocinco unlikely to return to Bengals

As this piece is published, the Bengals do not have a clear cut favorite to become the number two receiver yet. The Patriots released former Bengal and six time pro bowler Chad Ochocinco today, and there has been the predictable discussion on could/should the Bengals bring Ochocinco back to Cincinnati. Don't count on it. According to ESPN AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley...
