CINCINNATI Every day there are 90 men trying to make their case they belong on the Bengals roster. By Aug. 27, that number will be down to 75. It has to be down to 53 players by 6 p.m. on Aug. 31.
Between now and then the Bengals have three more preseason games and three weeks worth of practices to figure out which players stay and which have to go. The same scenario is playing...
Inactive for the Bengals: RB Bernard Scott, WR Ryan Whalen, TE Donald Lee, TE Richard Quinn, DE Carlos Dunlap, CB Jason Allen, CB Dre Kirkpatrick
Inactive for the Ravens: WR LaQuan Williams, CB Asa Jackson, OL Jah Reid, TE Billy Bajema, DL DeAngelo Tyson, OLB Sergio Kindle, DT Bryan Hall
The Ravens also made a roster move. Baltimore signed running back Anthony Allen from the practice...
When Jones-Drew’s agent announced that the outstanding running back is open to being traded, you could almost hear the collective eyebrows of the Bengals fans everywhere raise a bit, eyes fixed on empty space as we considered the immensity of such a possibility. He would immediately make the Bengals the favorites to win the AFC North, if not more.
Sorry, folks, it ain’t gonna...
James Urban, the Bengals’ wide receivers coach, has either the most fun or the most frustrating job of all the position coaches. The potential warehoused in the 12 players entrusted to his care is pretty amazing. Unfortunately, most of that potential has been minimally tested or completely untested at the pro level, leaving him and Marvin with the difficult job of cutting down...
In an interview with Bengals.com, Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said he sees no reason to add a veteran receiver and that he’d be surprised if someone didn’t pan out from the current group. The Bengals currently have a young group of receivers, Brandon Tate, Marvin Jones, Armon Binns, Mohamed Sanu, Jordan Shipley, and Ryan Whalen behind clear #1 receiver AJ Green...
This position is the biggest question mark on the roster for the offense, even though it is the most crowded position group on the team. Twelve guys are battling for six spots. The potential is huge. The experience level is frighteningly low.
You may be surprised with my preliminary expectations for the receiver corps. Things may change several times between now and early September...
Every February, The NFL Combine allows those who have entered their names in to the upcoming draft a chance to impress team scouts. Events such as the 40-yard dash, bench press and vertical jump have given insight to the fan on a player's "measurables."
While that can determine the athleticism of football players, without pads on, scouts know this is not the be all...
Receivers under contract (length of deal per NFLPA contract records): A.J. Green (through 2015), Jordan Shipley (through 2013), Andrew Hawkins (through 2012), Ryan Whalen (though 2014), Brandon Tate (through 2012), Armon Binns (through 2013), Vidal Hazelton (through 2013)

PASS OFFENSE (B-)
Solid, not great or awful. Andy Dalton (15 of 26 for 179 yards) had a passer rating of 62.8, but the number took a big hit due to his second quarter interception and not throwing a touchdown pass for the first time in 11 games. A.J. Green had 6 catches for 115 yards, including a 55-yard grab in single coverage in the first quarter and a 30-yard reception on a bubble...

Safety Chris Crocker was the lone player on the Did Not Practice list for the Bengals Wednesday, who continue their run (knock on wood) of good health into the second month of the season. Crocker sat out practice with a knee issue, just as he did last week. He did play against Jacksonville and came up with two tackles and a passed defense in the game. That one pass defense should...
