Its been an interesting offseason thus far for the Cincinnati Bengals as theyve lost a number players despite having plenty of cap space at their disposal. ESPNs Adam Schefter reports that the Bengals have signed former Texans CB Jason Allen. Cincy had to find an additional cornerback to play opposite of Leon Hall and Allen is at the very least a serviceable player. Allen is coming off of a decent season where he allowed just a 50.6 completion percentage. Source: NFL Trade Rumors

Last year we all learned that the Houston Texans were a much better team by design than perhaps some anticipated or even believed. But despite being that well-oiled machine that was a stone’s throw away from the 2011 AFC Conference, a few small issues did stand in the way of their magical advancement; issues that will be addressed in the 2012 NFL Draft.
The two major focal points...
The 2011-2012 season brought the Houston Texans their first playoff appearance in franchise history. The Texans’ defense, under leadership of Wade Phillips, adopted a 3-4 scheme. They finished the season as league leaders in total defense. Arian Foster and Ben Tate accompanied the feisty defense with a combined 2,166 rushing yards. The Texans’ great balance proved...
Eric Winston will be anchoring the right side of the Kansas City Chief’s offensive line for the next several years. The Chiefs got Winston after the Houston Texans cut ties with the tackle, signing him to a 4-year deal worth $22 million. Winston hasn’t missed a start since his arrival into the league in 2006 [...]
The Bengals finally put their money where there proverbial mouth is yesterday, jumping into the free agent fray with both feet by bringing in two players at positions of need in guard Travelle Wharton and defensive back Jason Allen. Wharton, Carolina’s 3rd-round pick in the 2004 draft, has been a constant starter for the Panthers at [...]
Running back Michael Bush is slated to visit the Bengals on Monday, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
The bruiser would make a solid upgrade at running back for Cincinnati with Cedric Benson likely to exit in free agency, and could form a potent tandem with Bernard Scott. Bush would hold nice appeal as a No. 2 fantasy back, but of course that could change if the...
The Bengals have signed free agent cornerback Jason Allen from Houston and agreed to a four-year deal with safety Reggie Nelson, who was one of their unrestricted free agents.
The moves on Monday bolster a secondary that was one of their main concerns in the offseason. Top cornerback Leon Hall is recovering from a torn left Achilles tendon.
Allen played in all 18 games for the...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cincinnati Bengals have re-sign safety Reggie Nelson. Terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed yet.
Re-signing Nelson was a priority for the Bengals after the great season he had in helping the Bengals get back to the playffos. He racked up 85 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 4 interceptions.
Everyone in Houston can now waive a sigh of relief.
After the cap-strapped Houston Texans cut ties with the likes of Eric Winston and Lawrence Vickers and watched Mike Brisiel and Mario Williams sign elsewhere, there was a sense that the team which had finally cracked the playoffs for the first time in franchise history (and won its first game in the postseason) was headed in the...
The Cincinnati Bengals signed guard Travelle Wharton to a contract on Saturday.
Terms were not disclosed on the deal, which was initially reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Signing Wharton was the first addition for the Bengals during the free agency period. He started at left guard for the Carolina Panthers for the past four seasons.
Wharton may be called to action quickly...
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms on a contract with free agent safety Reggie Nelson. Those terms were not disclosed. Nelson, 28, was a 2007 first-round pick out of Florida by the Jacksonville Jaguars who began his NFL career by posting 63 tackles, a sack and five interceptions as a rookie. Nelson's production tailed off the next two...
According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, the Houston Texans have re-signed center Chris Myers to a four-year deal worth $25 million with $14 million fully guaranteed.
At one point the Texans were worried they might lose Myers in free agency, but in the end they were able to work something out.
The best thing for Myers to do was to stay with the Texans, since he’s a perfect...
The Houston Texans have reached a deal with C Chris Myers, according to ESPNs Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that Meyers contract is a four-year worth $25 million and includes $14 million in guarantees. Houston cleared some much needed cap room recently with the release of OT Eric Winston which allowed them to even consider re-signing Meyers. Despite being one of the bests centers...
The Dallas Cowboys signed offensive lineman Nate Livings to a five-year contract.
The deal is worth a reported $19 million, including $6.2 million guaranteed.
Livings, who turned 30 Friday, has started all 32 games in the past two seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Running back Ben Jarvus Green-Ellis reportedly has a "mystery team" interested in his services according to Greg A. Bedard of the Boston Globe. The Patriots continue to try to re-sign the Law Firm but are only willing to do so "at the right price". Green-Ellis also has a visit scheduled with the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday but the Bengals don't appear that...
