CINCINNATI Brandon Joiner first stepped into the Bengals locker room at Paul Brown Stadium a year ago. Every time he enters the stadium he still has a sense of awe. Its a feeling he doesnt want to go away. The Bengals signed Joiner as an undrafted free agent last year. He was a defensive end from Arkansas State and had been named the Sun Belt Conferences Defensive Player of the Year. Joiner first walked into PBS during the teams annual three-day rookie mini-camp. Those three days would be the only time he was in the building last year. Joiner was released on parole from prison on Jan. 15 after serving nearly eight months of a three-year plea bargain sentence on an aggravated robbery and felony drug charge in 2007. Joiner was 18 and in his freshman year at Texas A&M at the time of the incident. He was being red-shirted from the Aggies football team during that season. According to police records, Joiner and a former Texas A&M teammate broke into the apartment of a know...

Cincinnati Bengals: The Hottest Draft Class Of 2013

While it seemed that the other NFL organizations were high on draft day, the Cincinnati Bengals kept their focus on the right selections.

Bengals sign 6th-round pick WR Cobi Hamilton

In what is called 'great value' by many, the Cincinnati Bengals have come to terms with their sixth-round selection, Arkansas receiver Cobi Hamilton. They now have three of their draft picks currently under contract. Hamilton will look to compete with an already stocked receiving corps, including Ryan Whalen, Taveon Rogers and Brandon Tate. Hamilton had a great 2012...

2013 NFL Draft Team Grades: Cincinnati Bengals

First Round: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame Hmm. I never even considered Eifert to the Bengals, but I like this idea. Pairing him with Gresham could be an awesome combo for Andy Dalton. This could be a mini version of Gronk/Hernandez. I'm a bit surprised by this pick, so I'm a bit iffy on how to grade this. It doesn't fit a big need, but the value is great and...

Bengals get started on 2 tight-end offense

Tyler Eifert lined up here, there and just about everywhere during his first practice with the Cincinnati Bengals. Felt like old times. The Bengals got started on their new tight end-heavy passing game Friday at the start of a weekend rookie minicamp. A lot of the focus was on Eifert, chosen in the first round to give quarterback Andy Dalton another target. Eifert lined up in a...

Grading the Draft: Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals struggled offensively in the playoffs last season, particularly second-year quarterback Andy Dalton. Recognizing this, Cincinnati drafted him some help with their first two picks, taking two skill players who should aid in Dalton’s development and give him playmakers not named A.J. Green. The excuses are running out for Dalton heading into year three and he will be...

Initiation complete as Bengals wrap up rookie camp

CINCINNATI Margus Hunt running down a football field to cover a kickoff is a scary image. Scary as in you dont want to be the player charged with having to block the 6-8, 277-pound Estonian mountain of a man. Wait until the Bengals get some pads on their second-round draft choice and he actually gets to hit someone. The Bengals rookie mini-camp wrapped up Sunday. Its a three-day...

Bengals RB working to help young cancer patient

Every time running back Rex Burkhead takes a handoff during Cincinnati Bengals rookie minicamp and tucks the ball under his right arm, that red ''Team Jack'' wristband stands out. The thin band reminds everyone of a 7-year-old cancer patient back in Nebraska who has changed Burkhead's life in a lot of ways. Jack Hoffman is on his wrist and in his thoughts as...
