There were two moves in the draft that very few of us saw coming: the selection of Brandon Thompson in round 3 and the selection of Orson Charles two picks later in round 4. Neither was a pick based on need, but both were great value picks who deepen strengths of the team.
I like the selection of Charles. The scouting report on him is really good, and his presence automatically creates a roster battle.
On The Roster
I have a suspicion that Jay Gruden was a little bit excited to see Charles still on the board as pick #116 approached and may have done a little lobbying for the big tight end out of Georgia. The TE roster looked adequate with Gresham, Lee and Cochart already in the fold, but the Bengals chose to add another dynamic to the group and add to the offense the increasingly popular threat of the two tight end set.
Starter: A.J. Green
Gresham is the mos...

A group of rookies, first-year players and longshot dreamers will gather starting Friday for the Bengals' three-day rookie minicamp. By May 22, the full team will be back for three weeks of optional practices and, finally, a mandatory, full-squad minicamp in mid-June.
Following is a look at five areas of question, need or priority for the Bengals as they prepare for a season...
Newly acquired Cincinnati Bengals guard Jacob Bell, an eight year veteran of the NFL, has decided to call it quits. The Bengals signed the offensive lineman on April 12th, but Bell has opted to walk away from the sport he loves. “There were a lot of factors and discussions with my family and myself and I think it was the right decision to be made,” he said.
Bell arrived in...
It's easy to be conflicted on Terrell Owens. On one hand, he's a self-destructive, irresponsible, absent father with an addiction to attention -- which is probably what landed him on an episode of "Dr. Phil" that taped Monday and aired Tuesday afternoon.
But on the other hand, you have to wonder how much of an impact a difficult upbringing and potential issues...
In what sounds like the greatest hour of television since "Who Shot J.R.?", Allen Wranglers wide receiver Terrell Owens will make an appearance this week with Dr. Phil. This is not a joke. This is not one of those Onion posts where you take two of the most ridiculous things on the planet and bring them together in a sort of, "yea it's funny, but nothing like...
Cornerback Shaun Prater and safety George Iloka, both fifth-round picks, signed with the Bengals. Terms were not disclosed. Prater had 171 tackles, seven interceptions and 19 passes defensed in 35 starts over four seasons at Iowa. Iloka had 232 tackles, seven interceptions and 17 passes defensed in 45 career starts for Hawaii.

Former Cincinnati Bengals safety Chris Crocker visited with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The free agent defensive back left Detroit without a contract and has a scheduled visit with the Cardinals next and possibly the San Francisco 49ers after that.
The Lions are looking to beef up their defensive backfield following a spate...
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, free agent linebacker Brandon Johnson is scheduled to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers today.
Johnson joined the Bengals in 2008 after spending his first 2 years in the league with the Arizona Cardinals. He played in every regular season and post season Bengals game since, the longest active streak on the team. Along with generating over...
It’s been reported that both the Cincinnati Bengals and the New York Jets are interested in free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards, but according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer he may not get signed until he’s done rehabbing his knee in Miami.
If Edwards does end up getting signed this offseason, which I believe is likely, he’ll probably only get a one-year deal...
So, I watched T.O.’s appearance on Dr. Phil on Tuesday. And it was just sad.
It was sad seeing a man with little maturity and no sense of responsibility in the midst of ruining the lives four innocent children.
Four children by four different women. You have to ask questions about the decision-making abilities of all involved, especially baby mamas 3 and 4, but in the end, it’s...
Forever controversial, future hall-of-fame wide receiver Terrell Owens went into what was likely his most hostile huddle yet: all of his baby's mommas and Dr Phil as his quarterback. They all gathered to work things out and figure out what is best for the four kids. This was for the kids right?
Many people outside of the "Bengals bubble" scoff at us when we believe that the team will be serious contenders again in 2012. We know that the team laid a good foundation through the last two drafts and they received massive praise for their haul again this year. The nay-sayers point to the inability of the Cincinnati to string together back-to-back solid seasons, as...
