Mohamed Sanu, Adam Jones, Geno Atkins and Andy Dalton went on vacation, and while Carlos Dunlap was hitting the books and heading back to school, Marvin Jones, Dre Kirkpatrick and George Iloka were...

Andy Dalton attends TCU Pro Day; Bengals workout there in offseason

Andy Dalton and his Bengals receivers workout at TCU in the offseason, but Friday was all about the Horned Frogs pro day. Though the Bengals didn't have any confirmed scouts or coaches in attendance for TCU's pro day, they were represented in the form of former Horned Frogs, the great Andy Dalton. This isn't the first time Dalton has been back to TCU, as head coach Gary Patterson said Dalton and Bengals receivers workout there in the offseason. He also has been shooting hoops with current Horned Frogs in his spare time. However, Friday saw the winningest QB in program history on hand...

Andy Dalton will start and AJ McCarron will compete (for the backup role)

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton will start for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2015. Everything after that is a bit of a mystery, beginning with AJ McCarron. No, not this year. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron has virtually no shot at unseating Andy Dalton, and the $9.6 million cap number that he comes with, as the team's starting quarterback. NOTE: It's cute if you suggest that Dalton could be demoted to second position this year but stay on the team. If there's a scenario where McCarron replaces Andy Dalton this year, Dalton isn't staying. It's just that, save for traumatic physical...

Bengals Offseason Positional Outlook: Quarterbacks

After a few weeks of non-stop draft and free agency talk, we resume our offseason positional outlooks and take a look at the Bengals "hot button" topic, quarterback. 2014 Depth Chart Starter: Andy Dalton Backup: Jason Campbell PS: AJ McCarron 2014 Recap: There is no denying that Andy Dalton did not have a great year in 2014 and coming off the heels of his recent contract extension, the Dalton hate was at an all-time high. However, there is a silver lining - a lining that will immediately have me labeled a Dalton apologist – injuries. Dalton played all of 2014 without two of his top three...

Bengals Bites (3/29) - Defensive Emphasis

Marvin Lewis blames the playoff losses on the defense and wants to get much better on that side of the football. What can the Bengals expect with their extra draft picks? Cincinnati Bengals' defensive emphasis this offseason is clear - ESPNWhile many outside of Paul Brown Stadium spent the early days of the offseason lamenting Andy Dalton's inconsistencies and placing the Cincinnati Bengals' struggles primarily at his feet, his coach, Marvin Lewis, looked elsewhere to identify issues.

Bengals don't want competition for Andy Dalton, but know he needs strong supporting cast

The Bengals know Andy Dalton isn't perfect, but they're not losing faith in him, at least publicly. No one's going to mistake Andy Dalton for an 'elite' quarterback, but that doesn't mean the Bengals aren't going all-in on him. In fact, Marvin Lewis doesn't want there to be any competition at QB. When asked about that possible scenario at the NFL Owners meeting, Lewis replied with, "What team in the NFL has had a quarterback competition and it's worked?" Lewis was then asked about the 49ers once having a battle between Steve Young and Joe Montana to be the starter. Lewis didn't buy it,...

Bengals comfortable enough to promote AJ McCarron as Andy Dalton's primary backup

Backup quarterback AJ McCarron has been impressing the Bengals with his should rehabilitation. So much so that Cincinnati's quarterback structure could be significantly different than originally expected. The Cincinnati Bengals are feeling comfortable enough with AJ McCarron's shoulder that the idea of him being Andy Dalton's primary backup, could be more realistic than what was previous thought. In addition to that, the Bengals could navigate throughout the NFL draft for a third-string quarterback at some point (we're thinking that if there's a possibly that another quarterback is signed,...

Ben Roethlisberger gets similar contract to Andy Dalton

Had Andy Dalton won a Super Bowl this past season, he'd be annually making close to what Ben Roethlisberger will be making. The Pittsburgh Steelers won't be getting Ben Roethlisberger on the cheap with his new contract, but they're not breaking the bank either. The face value of Roethlisberger's new contract is $99 million, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. However, his contract is structured similarly to guys like Andy Dalton and Colin Kaepernick in that it will increase in annual value if certain incentives are met. In Roethlisberger's case, his deal is worth up to $108...
