Last year, wide receiver Brandon Tate was picked up on waivers from the New England Patriots on the final day of roster cuts. He wasn't asked to contribute on offense at all, with only a handful of snaps at wide receiver and zero targets, but rather to become the team's primary kick and punt returner. Now, Tate has moved on to become a leading candidate to take the second wide receiver spot.
This year, a host of elusive, speedy players are on the team fighting for either of the two starting return positions. Head coach Marvin Lewis listed the candidates in a chat with Cincinnati.com last Wednesday:
Adam Jones will have an opportunity as well as Brandon Tate and Marvin Jones and Andrew Hawkins as punt returners. Tate, Hawkins and Aaron Brown, [Kashif] Moore and [Taveon] Rogers will get plenty of looks in kickoff returns.
Cornerback Adam Jones said earlier in the offseason that he really wants the punt return job.
"I want that job," he said. "I real...

During his chat with fans through the Cincinnati Enquirer, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was asked about cornerback Adam Jones and how he's largely improved as a player both on and off the field.

The Bengals kicking game is in good hands -- er, good shape -- with a pair of Ohio products, Mike Nugent and Kevin Huber.
Nugent made 33-of-38 field goals last season, and his 33 field goals and 132 points set franchise records. He'll play 2012 under the franchise tag, giving him every...
The idea that the Cincinnati Bengals have a starting safety right now is a bit subjective. They don't. The favorite being promoted by those around the team, though not necessarily the team, is that Taylor Mays is the favorite. He took most of the first-team snaps with the first team during offseason workouts, but head coach Marvin Lewis told fans during a recent Cincinnati...

Going into the 2012 NFL Draft, many draftniks linked the Cincinnati Bengals with Rutgers wide receiver, Mohamed Sanu. What many didn't predict was that Sanu would fall to the team towards the latter portion of the third round, instead of the first two rounds as many experts projected. With the 2012 Training Camp upon us and the second wide receiver job up for grabs, the idea...
The Cincinnati Bengals wouldn't be the Cincinnati Bengals without at least one non-football related offseason injury. Two years ago it was Jason Shirley injuring an Achilles, ending his season well before training camp even began. Last year it was Keith Rivers, showing up to training camp with what was described at the time as a "rebuilding of the wrist".
There are few players on the Bengals roster to who seem to care more about the club more than defensive tackle, Domata Peko. Not only does he seem to have a never-ending motor, but he's also assumed a leadership role over the past couple of seasons. He really emerged as a leader going into the 2011 season when the team was forced to come up with players-only practices because...

ESPN North blogger Jamison Hensley continues top-25 players in the AFC North, naming Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green No. 10. He's the fourth player listed in Hensley's ranking -- Carlos Dunlap (No. 14), Andrew Whitworth (No. 18), Thomas Howard (No. 25) -- and we suspect one more remains in defensive tackle Geno Atkins.
As for Green Hensley hits all of the...
