PLAYERS: Hue Jackson
The Bengals have hired Adam Zimmer, the son of defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, as an assistant defensive backs coach.

His father has been the Bengals' defensive coordinator since 2008. He interviewed for head coaching jobs with other teams each of the last two years, but will be back for his sixth year in Cincinnati. The move could complete the Bengals coaching staff.
