With Kirkpatrick and newly acquired cornerback Terence Newman in the fold, the Bengals secondary will be more solid, as veteran cornerback Leon Hall to lead the way. “It’s great for the club and great for Dre to have him signed this early,” said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, via press release. “Contracts can be a distraction for young guys drafted high, but now he can put all that behind him and focus on making himself better and making us a better team.” A multiple first-team 2011 All-America selection, Kirkpatrick last year helped lead Alabama to its second BCS national championship in his three years at the school.  Throughout his career, he proved himself as a confident defender who can physically outperform receivers and play tough against the run. “Dre was the tallest (6-2) of the top corners in...

Terrell Owens skid continues as he “parts ways” with super agent Drew Rosenhaus

One of the last vital pieces in the professional jigsaw puzzle that is the life and times of Terrell Owens is gone. According to the NFL, Owens stated that he and Rosenhaus have “parted ways.” Should we really have to speculate on how this went down? Rosenhaus is still actively making deals for players such as LeSean McCoy and Yeremiah Bell. Owens appears to be embarking...

Green, Dalton continue to make strides

With as much as A.J. Green and Andy Dalton accomplished their first year in the NFL, they might be even better in year two. During the Bengals' offseason conditioning program, coaches have been impressed with the strides both players have made not just in grasping the offense but in showing their leadership. "They've grown and experienced a lot. They're not the...

Bengals’ Devon Still lining up at multiple positions in practice

The Bengals drafted Devon Still in the 2nd round of the 2012 NFL Draft not so much because he filled a need, but because he was a value pick. Especially after the Bengals used another draft pick, their 3rd rounder, on a defensive tackle in Brandon Thompson, it was unclear how the Bengals planned to use their defensive lineman this year. Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer loves rotation...

Report: Bengals' Moch facing 4-game suspension

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch reportedly has been suspended by the NFL for using a banned substance. Pending an appeal, Moch will have to sit four games, according to CBSSports.com. Moch was taken in the second round last year after running the fastest 40 time among linebackers and lineman. However, he missed all of his rookie season with a broken metatarsal bone...

Bengals LB Dontay Moch suspended 4 games; pending appeal

Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch never saw the field in his rookie year. The 3rd round pick from 2011 sustained a foot injury in training camp last year, preventing him from seeing the field at all. According to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network, he may not see the field at the start of 2012 either. La Canfora reported via Twitter that Moch has been suspended for four...

Bengals’ Dontay Moch suspended

The Bengals drafted Dontay Moch in the 3rd round last year as an athletic edge rusher who could potentially play a joker role for them. However, he has yet to get on the field after missing all of last season with injury. Now he’s suffered another setback, a 4 game suspension from the league for testing posting for an undisclosed illegal substance. He will appeal. The Bengals already...

The Coming Quarterback Conundrum

The backup quarterback. The captain of the clipboard and backward baseball cap. Every team has one or two. While the other 51 guys on the roster are expected to produce to keep their jobs, everyone hopes that these guys will never have to step onto the field to earn their checks. And like every team, the Bengals will have to make one of three decisions about theirs. 1. Keep Just...

Terrell Owens: Back To The Bay Area'?

In a weird twist, it now appears as if beggars can be choosers. Terrell Owens, who is coming off of two knee surgeries, and an infamous stint with the UBL Allen Wranglers, has said publicly where he’d like to play football next season – and no, it isn’t playing center for the newly formed World Bikini Football League (although who wouldn't want that job). Apparently...

Terrell Owens Wants to Finish Where it Started

I came across this nice little piece on Terrell Owens from the Bay Area Sports Guy. Owens was interviewed by Brandon Tierney and Eric Davis on 95.7 FM “The Game”. It will not air until Monday, but Bay Area Sports Guy received a transcript via email: Would you have been a better fit with the 49ers (in response to the team taking a chance on Randy Moss): Owens: “Would I have...

Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch on suspension: mistakes happen

NFL Insider Jason La Canfora tweeted Saturday night that Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Dontay Moch will be suspended four games for the 2012 regular season for using a banned substance. The suspension is pending an appeal and there's no updates or reports what the substance could be. Either way we have to suspect that Moch's future with the team is somewhat suspect right...
