The Bengals struggled to find a complimentary WR to play opposite AJ Green, so when the opportunity came to draft the top TE in the 2013 draft, they passed on need and went with stud TE Tyler Eifert. By the looks of it in Mini Camp, they plan to line him up all over the formation and utilize the mismatches he will create.
“A lot of the things I’m learning are a lot of the same plays we had in with two tight ends — move me around in different positions,” Eifert said. “Today I was out in the slot quite a bit. I think I’m picking it up pretty fast.”
“I think I picked it up better than I thought I would at first,” Eifert said. “It’s not a whole lot, but it’s definitely something new for me. I’m catching on pretty quickly and moving around quite a bit.”
Dalton thinks that having two tight ends will give the Bengals a bigger advantage against defenses. Most teams are trying to follow the Patriots model and the Bengals have two very solid guys and I think Eifert could be special.
“You get the matchup of the tight ends on the linebackers and safeties,” Dalton said recently. “ So I think he’s going to be a great addition. He’s going to make Jermaine a better player. I’m excited to get him in here and get working with him.”

James Harrison spends a lot of his money on one particular thing. But it's not something you would expect, and it's a ton of money.
CINCINNATI A defensive backs best friend is a good pass rush. The Bengals already have one of the best in the NFL but Leon Hall is perfectly fine with adding a little more help. Ditto for Adam Jones.
The Bengals didnt sign James Harrison as a token gesture or PR move for his name value. Both they and Harrison expect the 35-year-old linebacker to be an integral part of the Bengals...
As anyone who follows me knows, I’m a huge fan of newly-minted Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Jayson DiManche. DiManche was signed away from the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent after a courtship by the Jags that went so far as the team’s position coach speaking to DiManche all throughout the draft, and discussing future plans with him. In the end, DiManche made...

2.21 Cincinnati Bengals Margus Hunt, DE, SMU, (6-8,277)

CINCINNATI Margus Hunt running down a football field to cover a kickoff is a scary image. Scary as in you dont want to be the player charged with having to block the 6-8, 277-pound Estonian mountain of a man. Wait until the Bengals get some pads on their second-round draft choice and he actually gets to hit someone.
