Found November 05, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Bengals thought they’d found a defensive tackle to replace Geno Atkins on the 53-man roster when they announced the signing of Christo Bilukidi on Monday. That signing was nullified later in the day, however, because Bilukidi, who is Canadian, didn’t have the proper documentation to work in the United States. He’ll be eligible to sign with a team once he gets the paperwork sorted out, but the Bengals have decided to move in a different direction. And they’ve decided to buy American. The team announced that they have signed Kheeston Randall, a 2012 seventh-round pick of the Dolphins and a proud product of Beaumont, Texas.

Rookie Review: Giovani Bernard Makes the Most of His Touches in Impressive Performance vs. Miami

When many look at running backs, the primary attribute they focus on is a runner’s speed, size, or sheer strength. But more often than not, a running back’s success stems from decisiveness and controlled step which allow him to take advantage of the gaps in a defense or the poor positioning of tacklers. While it takes some running backs years to attain that controlled...

Should the Bengals sign Nnamdi Asomugha?

I've been keeping an eye on Twitter and Cincinnati Bengals forums to see what people's views on this topic were and from what I can see, it's about 51% to 49% in favor of picking up Nnamdi Asomugha and although the Bengals are in need of some additional help at cornerback, I'm going to have to side with the 49% on this one. It's true to say that Asomugha was...

Bengals Still On Top Of The AFC North, But For How Long?

Target Town: Week 9

A Tier Of His Own, and A.J. Green isn’t coming back down to earth any time soon.
