Jordan Shipley had a strong rookie year in 2010 out of the slot, catching 52 passes for 600 yards and 3 touchdowns, but he tore his ACL early last season and only managed 4 catches for 14 yards. Shipley had a laundry list of injury problems in college at Texas, so much so that he was granted a 6th year of eligibility (it’s why he’s already heading into his age 27 season). The Bengals took a chance on his talent in the 3rd round in spite of his injuries, but, even with his strong 2010, it might not end up paying off. Shipley admitted today that his surgically repaired knee is still stiff and that he’ll be limited in minicamp, though the team still asserts that he’ll be good to go for Training Camp. This is still obviously not good news for someone with his history of injuries. If Shipley is healthy, he’ll be the team’s slot receiver.

Could A Corner Be Our Second Best Safety?

Could Newman contribute as a Safety in Mike Zimmer's D? Mike Zimmer has been nothing less than a Godsend to the Bengals.  In his relatively short time in the Queen City, he’s managed to turn the Bengals defense from an annual sore spot and laughing stock to the unit that often single-handedly wins games.  Perhaps most impressively, he’s done it with a hodgepodge of parts...

Bengals' Dalton more comfortable being leader

If a receiver runs the wrong route, Andy Dalton isn't shy about taking him aside and correcting the problem. The quarterback is more comfortable with his role as a leader entering his second season with the Cincinnati Bengals, taking more responsibility on his inexperienced shoulders.

Fantasy Football: Andy Dalton Will Be a Top QB

With all the talk about picking up a top-end quarterback in the first couple rounds, a player I’ve noticed that has been left out of the discussion is Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton.

Bengals satisfied with their receiving corps

In an interview with Bengals.com, Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said he sees no reason to add a veteran receiver and that he’d be surprised if someone didn’t pan out from the current group. The Bengals currently have a young group of receivers, Brandon Tate, Marvin Jones, Armon Binns, Mohamed Sanu, Jordan Shipley, and Ryan Whalen behind clear #1 receiver AJ Green...

Steelers Sign Linebacker Brandon Johnson

The Steelers have signed former Bengals linebacker Brandon Johnson to the 90 man roster.  Johnson is a good special teams player.  He has never been much of a contributor on defense but has played in every game since he entered the NFL.  He is tough guy though who goes all out.  Something the Steelers love in their players. Johnson will likely be battling for a roster spot with...
