Newman likes new start with his old coach

The Cincinnati Bengals currently have six cornerbacks on their roster who were first-round selections. There's a good chance that at least one of them will not be on the roster when the season starts at Baltimore on Sept. 10. Last year the Bengals had four first-rounders, but they struggled over the second half of the season when Leon Hall went down with a season-ending Achilles...

Former Badger Zeitler signs with Bengals

Former Wisconsin offensive lineman Kevin Zeitler no longer has to worry about his first contract, so hes turned his attention to something to help get around Cincinnati. The Bengals announced Friday that they had signed Zeitler to a four-year contract. Now Zeitler, who was the 27th overall selection, is looking for his first car. "My younger brother owned one before me. I...

Bengals sign 1st-round pick Zeitler

The Bengals signed Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler to a four-year deal on Friday, leaving both of their first-round picks under contact. The Bengals had already signed Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, the 17th overall pick. They got that selection by trading quarterback Carson Palmer to the Raiders last season. Their own pick was the 21st overall. They traded it to New England...

Bengals sign first round pick Kevin Zeitler

Getty Images The Cincinnati Bengals officially announced the signing of first round pick, guard Kevin Zeitler on Friday. Zeitler should be a big help when the Bengals will have to deal with defenses of both the Ravens and the Steelers twice a year.

Re-Valuing the Tight End

Sorry, this is not a post about women in yoga pants. Although maybe I should file that idea away for another day. (That’s a joke, honey, I swear!) The value of the running back continues to wane in the modern NFL. The shift to the exciting (and very marketable) passing game, plus the physical toll paid by backs, is slowly draining the value from spot. And the tight end position...

Bengals plan to keep imprisoned rookie linebacker

The Cincinnati Bengals are supporting one of their undrafted rookies who was sentenced to three years in prison this week. Linebacker Brandon Joiner's sentencing on Wednesday stems from a 2007 incident when he was an 18-year-old at Texas A&M. He and a teammate allegedly broke into an apartment, assaulted two men, restrained them with duct tape and stole their wallets, cell...

Bungles and prison just can’t seem to keep away from one another

Welcome to the Bengals...maybe later I’ll spare all the cheap Bungles jailbird jokes and gibberish. Cincinnati had a remarkable run through 2007-08 that clearly illustrated their penchant for bringing on players to the roster with less-than-sterling pasts. No matter how you slice the “giving guys a chance argument,” it went to some fairly preposterous levels during a 14-month...

No 'Hard Knocks' For Patriots

HBO is finding it tough going to lure a big market team to open the doors for an offseason of their "Hard Knocks" series. One NFL insider told us, there's no chance the Patriots would ever get on that list. They're probably right. The Cincinnati Bengals however, ARE reportedly one of the teams still in the mix.

Commentary: Are The Cincinnati Bengals Still The NFL's Bad Boys?

Brought to you by: Cincy Jungle Since the mid-2000s, the Bengals have had this image of being a safe haven for criminals, miscreants and other NFL players who have had legal run-ins. From 2005-2008, the amount of Bengal player arrests was staggering and it led to a number of players being suspended and/or booted from the team. It hindered the franchise's growth, as the club...
