The Bengals stopped sitting on their hands and started making some moves in free agency with the acquisitions of Travelle Wharton and Jason Allen and the re-signing of Reggie Nelson. Like everyone else, I was disillusioned at first as other teams opened up the vaults for Robert Meachem, Carl Nicks, and Ben Grubbs, among others. [...]

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...

In most cases, there can be unrest in locker rooms due to the lack of team chemistry. However, in the case of the Cincinnati Bengals cheerleaders, the "Ben-Gals," theirs is divided because some of the girls have breast implants. Laura Vikmanis, 43, is the oldest cheerleader on the squad. She recently told the Cincinnati Enquirer that "the most prominent division on...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed free agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis to a three-year deal. We don’t know the specific numbers of the deal at this time.
Now that the Bengals have moved on from Cedric Benson, Green-Ellis will give them a nice veteran presence in their back field.

With there being plenty of concerns about the state of the Bengals' secondary, there has been a ray of hope the past couple weeks in the comeback of Leon Hall.
Four months after tearing his Achilles in a Week 10 loss to the Steelers, Hall is doing running and backpedaling as he has still targeted a return for the start of training camp.
"In six weeks I made a lot of inroads...
Cincinnati Bengals safety Chris Crocker suggested he and several other players were happy to see the back of Hines Ward after the decorated former Steelers wideout announced his retirement.

He departs as franchise leader with 1,000 catches -- which ranks eighth on the NFL'...
The Bengals are reportedly finalizing a deal for running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
The Patriots were interested in re-signing Green-Ellis, but apparently is getting a better deal with Cincinnat - but a boost in carries is not guaranteed if Cedric Benson departs, as the Bengals could still add a promising running back early in Aprils Draft, such as David Wilson. And...
The Cincinnati Bengals agreed to a three-year contract with running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis on Thursday.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed for Green-Ellis, who spent the past four seasons with the New England Patriots.

On Tuesday, Hines Ward announced his retirement with an emotional speech during which he pronounced himself a Steeler for life. To many, Ward epitomizes the way the wide receiver position should be played.

Caldwell has spent his first four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, snaring a career-high 51 catches in 2009-10.
He had 37 receptions for 317 yards and three touchdowns last season.
It is fair to be disappointed about Reggie Nelson clearly using the New York Jets to jack up the price on the Cincinnati Bengals, who he chose to re-sign with. Nelson is a rangy, athletic player who would have been an immediate upgrade at free safety. However, Nelson is a good…not great player and thus not worth despairing over for too long. It is certainly too early to feel...
