Bengals Bytes (7/16): Deflategate quietly ends

Chad Johnson will be guest coaching with the Browns, but could this lead to a full time job somewhere as a coach? The Ravens reach an agreement with Justin Tucker after his agent's threats. Tom Brady has given in to his suspension. First look at projecting the Bengals' rosterThe Bengals open training camp on the practice fields adjacent Paul Brown Stadium on July 29. From there, they will spent the next five weeks trimming the roster from 90 players down to the standard 53 traveling to New York for the opener on Sept. 11.

Trae Waynes Works Out With Chad Ochocinco

Earlier this offseason, we heard about Minnesota Vikings’ cornerback Xavier Rhodes working on his game with some of the best wide receivers that the National Football League has to offer. Rhodes’ teammate, second-year corner Trae Waynes, is looking to take his game up a notch as well, but he’s taking a slightly different approach. He’s been working with a receiver that we all know, but hasn’t been heard from in a while. Waynes and his former Michigan State teammate, Darqueze Dennard, have taken to the practice field with former Cincinnati Bengals great Chad Johnson Ochocinco...

Chad Johnson to coach Browns WRs during training camp, Bengals not letting him in locker room

This is an interesting turn of events. It seems like just yesterday that Chad Johnson was dominating the gridiron as he became one of the NFL's elite receivers. Much of it came during his 10-year career with the Bengals, but boy did his career fall hard and fast. After a failed stint with the Patriots, Johnson didn't even make it out of training camp with the Dolphins before being cut. A big reason why was his arrest for a domestic violence incident. Since then, Johnson endured a failed stint in the CFL and now, he'd like a chance to coach in the NFL using all the experience he gained...

Chad Johnson will work with Browns’ wide receivers at training camp

This offseason, former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson has been singing the praises of Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson. He’s also been lobbying since the beginning of May to get some form of a coaching gig with the team’s wide receivers: @Browns When do I get to work w/ the receivers on route running & getting open 24/7?— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) May 2, 2016 Later that day, in responding to a fan’s question, Johnson said, “I train receivers but the Browns have yet to tweet me back.” By mid-May, Johnson tweeted that he had touched base with...

90-in-90 Bengals Roster Breakdown: Get to know Michael Bennett, the latest Dawg in Cincy

Michael Bennett once was on a path that seemed destined to take him to the NFL. The road got a bit rocky, but now he has a chance to make his NFL dreams a reality with the Bengals. It's no secret the Georgia Bulldogs have a strong pipeline in Cincinnati. Former Dawgs receiver Michael Bennett is hoping that helps his chances of cracking the Bengals' 53-man roster in 2016, but college aside, he's in a good position to do so just by playing the position he does. It's also no secret Cincinnati has a lot of questions at receiver heading into training camp, so this may be the best shot at making...

John Clayton predicts Bengals will get playoff win by 2019

We agree. Or, at least we hope this happens so much that we're willing ourselves to agree. The Bengals have made it to the playoffs for five straight years and six of the last seven, yet, that's really not enough as they've lost each of those games. Each season, it seems more and more like the drought will end. Yet, it hasn't ended despite January's playoff game against the Steelers seeming all but won with two minutes left on the game clock. Will January 2017 be the Bengals' time to finally win a playoff game? How about January 2018 or January 2019? John Clayton released 30 predictions for...

Bengals' 2016 schedule starts tough, gets easier

It could be a difficult road this year, but will the Bengals be up to the challenge of making it back to the playoffs in 2016? The 2016 season is going to be an interesting one for the Bengals, to say the least. They set the bar pretty high after finishing the 2015 regular season with a 12-4 record. But, a ton of offseason personnel changes mean that reaching those heights again could be quite a challenge. In many cases, the argument can be made that the Bengals upgraded certain positions and gave the roster a fresh, new look. There were a lot more problems with the old roster than their...

Re-evaluating Michael Johnson's contract value with Bengals

Did the Bengals get a good deal when Michael Johnson returned to Cincinnati in 2015? In 2009, the Bengals took a defensive end by the name of Michael Johnson in the third round of the NFL Draft, despite speculation that he would be taken in the first round. He was seen as a one of a kind athlete with great size and strength. Most of the mental and instinctual parts of his game were seen as huge positives, although questions about his effort, fundamentals, and injury history caused teams to avoid him for the first 69 picks of the Draft. Through his first five years with the team, he rewarded...

Who is the most overrated Bengals player of the last 20 years?

Carson Palmer? Chad Johnson? T.J. Houshmandzadeh? Who is your pick for the most overrated Bengals player of last 20 years?

Bengals' 10 best positional matchups in 2016: No. 5 Andy Dalton vs Broncos' Secondary

Andy Dalton should get his next chance to play against the Broncos on September 25, 2016. The Bengals will face off against the World Champion Denver Broncos in their 2016 Week 3 home opener. Providing both teams live up to their expectations in 2016, it should be the kind of game that gets a lot of attention not just from Bengals and Broncos fans, but the entire NFL community. It's actually a bit surprising that the game is currently set to be featured on CBS at 1:00 p.m. ET that day. That's especially true since the Sunday Night Football game that week features the Cowboys and Bears, who...

Carlos Dunlap's production highlights value Bengals received from 2013 extension

The Bengals have used the past few offseasons to extend their core players. In 2013, defensive end Carlos Dunlap received an extension that has provided great value because of the Dunlap's outstanding production. Sometimes Draft risks end up paying off. It's why some teams just can't stay away from very talented youngsters in the annual NFL festivities, despite their red flags. Because of his contributions on and off-the-field for the Cincinnati Bengals since 2010, few fans readily remember Carlos Dunlap being viewed as a "boom or bust" player by some pundits, who pointed at an inconsistent...
