Bengals Make Bold Statement In Round 2

Positive or negative, there is sure to be plenty of reaction about the statement made by the Bengals’ war room on Day 2 of the 2012 draft. It is a statement we might expect to hear from a head coach that came up as a Defensive Coordinator: “You are not going to run on us!” In a division featuring Ray Rice — who has gashed the Bengals several times — and now Trent Richardson...

Bengals LB Maualuga settles assault case

A judge has dismissed an assault charge against Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga (mow-uh-LOO'-guh) after learning the dispute was settled in mediation. Maualuga was charged with misdemeanor assault after an employee at a downtown bar told police that the middle linebacker punched him in the face on Feb. 5. The case was referred to mediation. Maualuga appeared briefly...

Rounds 1-3 Winners: Cincinnati Bengals

I haven’t loved every pick made by the Cincinnati Bengals, but the class as a whole is a phenomenal haul for one of the up-and-coming teams in the league. Dre Kirkpatrick gives the Bengals a very deep secondary, and he should compete for a starting job. It wasn’t necessarily a glaring need, but the value made it the right choice. Kevin Zeitler was a reach in my opinion, but he...

Mohamed Sanu Actually Drafted by Cincinnati Bengals Night After Prank Claiming First Round

Rutgers wide reciever Mohamed Sanu was, in fact, selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2012 NFL Draft--just not in the round he originally thought he was. Sanu got a phone call from a random number with a New Jersey area code Thursday night from a man saying he was with the Bengals organization. He then went on to tell Sanu that the team had taken him with the 27th overall pick...

Bengals LB Maualuga settles assault case

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A judge dismissed an assault charge against Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga on Thursday after learning the dispute was settled in mediation. He still faces possible punishment from the NFL under its personal conduct policy. Maualuga was charged with misdemeanor assault after an employee at a downtown bar told police that the middle linebacker punched...

Rutgers Wide Receiver Mohamed Sanu Told He Was Drafted by Bengals in Prank Call During First Round of NFL Draft

Getting drafted by an NFL team is a dream come true for many college football players. The draftees are often seen on TV shown with overjoyed enthusiasm when they receive the phone call verifying that the dream has become a reality. Unfortunately for Mohamed Sanu, someone decided to toy with his dream during the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night. The Rutgers wide receiver...

Cincinnati Bengals Draft Sanu

With the 83rd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. Sanu, who was the victim of a prank involving the Bengals during the first round, joins fellow Rutgers legend Brian Leonard in Cincinnati.

Double Dip Of Draft Lovin’

The Bengals were one of 5 teams to make two selections in the first round, which I think automatically puts them in the top 5 of the draft so far. (Even if the sports media largely ignores them.) I am inclined to give the first round a “B+” grade. Like most of you, there were guys available that I thought would have made better picks. But they did address clear needs, and they...

Someone Pranked Called Mohamed Sanu Saying He Was Drafted By Benglas

Rutgers wide receiver Mohamed Sanu received a call Thursday night, during the NFL Draft, as a unknown prank caller claimed they were from the Cincinnati Bengals, as the Bengals were about to draft him, according to Sports Illustrated.Sadly, the Bengals hadn't called Sanu. The caller claimed that Sanu should get himself ready, as the Bengals would draft him as the 27th overall...

Draft Day Prognostication

Draft Day is finally here! In a few hours we will finally meet the newest class of Bengals, beginning tonight with two guys we hope to see be significant contributors for years to come. But before then, let’s take one more stab at who those guys might be. Let’s work backwards through the positions in their likelihood to be taken in the first round. “Ain’t Happening” 14...

Bengals go supersize on Night Two

The Bengals are beefing up for a run at the AFC's really big boys. Two of the Bengals' three picks in the NFL Draft Friday night were defensive tackles. Three of the five picks they've made through three rounds of the draft are 300-plus pound interior linemen. In Thursday night's first round, the Bengals drafted for need. Friday night, they went big with Penn...

Bengals take Cal WR Jones in 5th round

The Bengals got another receiver with their second pick in the fifth round, taking Marvin Jones from California. One of their priorities in the draft was to upgrade a group of receivers that lost Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell to free agency. Jones will add depth to the group. He had 62 catches for 846 yards and three touchdowns last season. The Bengals took receiver Mohamed...

Draft recap and undrafted free agent signings

Well, it may have played out differently than most could have guessed, but man, the Bengals sure did seem to have a solid draft. After Bengals fans climbed off the ledge on Thursday (looking your direction Mr. Seuberling) and realized what the Bengals accomplished, the total pull by the Bengals looks to improve this team right away. Then, the Bengals went ahead and added to their...

Jones ready after longer than expected wait

Despite having to wait an extra day, Cal wide receiver Marvin Jones is excited to join the Cincinnati Bengals.
