What are the Bengals’ most pressing positional needs after recent roster moves?

Cincinnati has made six major acquisitions through the onset of free agency. Where does that leave them for the draft? For a team that hasn’t truly made any splash free agency signings, it’s been a busy first week-plus of free agency for the Cincinnati Bengals. Whether it’s in roster additions, subtractions or in visits with prospective signees, there has been a lot of headline news from the club to begin the month of March. Tyler Eifert, C.J. Uzomah, Bobby Hart, Preston Brown, John Miller and B.W. Webb have all been signed to club for starting or heavy rotational roles going...

Bengals announce Tyler Eifert re-signed and Vontaze Burfict cut

A busy day for the Bengals. On Monday, the Bengals brought back one talented veteran and let another go. In the morning, the team announced that tight end Tyler Eifert had been re-signed to a one-year deal. When the offseason began, it was far from a certainty that Eifert would be back, especially after the Bengals gave C.J. Uzomah a three-year deal paying him starter money. But there’s no question that the Bengals have been at their best when Eifert is playing, and that’s what they hope to see a lot of in 2019. View this post on Instagram OFFICIAL:...

5 reasons the Bengals’ re-signing of C.J. Uzomah makes sense

5 reasons the Bengals’ re-signing of C.J. Uzomah makes sense

We look at the signing of Uzomah and why it made sense for the Bengals The Bengals had some practice squad guys coming back at tight end in 2019 and Mason Schreck was returning from his injury, but all three of their starters from 2018 were free agents. The question was, will the Bengals bring any of those starters back—and if they did, who would it be? Well, now the question has been answered and initially, it was in C.J. Uzomah. Once a young player who was billed as very raw and needing development coming out of college, he began to really turn a corner in his professional career last...

Approval poll: Bengals re-sign C.J. Uzomah to three-year deal

Cincinnati made some moves on the first day of free agency, with one being their retaining of a young, talented tight end. This time of year can be both frustrating and refreshing for fans of the Cincinnati Bengals. On one hand, people have their player wish lists, see inactivity and get frustrated. On the other, a lot of those players sign lucrative deals only to never see the entire contract through. The Bengals weren’t totally silent on Monday though, as the “legal tampering” phase of free agency kicked off the whole frenzy. As expected, most of their work was done on internal...

Why the Bengals trading for Jets LB Darron Lee should be a no-brainer

Why the Bengals trading for Jets LB Darron Lee should be a no-brainer

The Jets just gave LB C.J. Mosley a huge contract, and that means they could be motivated to move on from their former first-round pick. The Bengals have once again seemed to stumble out of the gates at the beginning of free agency. They started strong with the re-signing of C.J. Uzomah and Brandon Wilson, but then announced a ludicrous three-year deal to Bobby Hart. On top of that, they’ve continued to watch the rest of the league agree to terms with the top talent on the market, like they always do. Before the dust of free agency settles, the Bengals have to address their need at...

Should the Bengals re-sign CB Darqueze Dennard?

Should the Bengals re-sign CB Darqueze Dennard?

Dennard is an important part of the Bengals secondary, but are his injury concerns enough to prevent a new deal in Cincinnati? After opening free agency with the re-signings of C.J. Uzomah and Bobby Hart, the Bengals have one more important decision to make regarding their own free agents. Last season, the Bengals exercised the fifth-year option on cornerback Darqueze Dennard’s contract, giving him an extra $8.56 million in salary. Tomorrow, his contract will have officially expired, and the Bengals’ front office needs to act quickly. Do they re-sign a CB that has not lived up to his...

Bills signing Tyler Kroft to deal similar to what Bengals gave C.J. Uzomah

Bills signing Tyler Kroft to deal similar to what Bengals gave C.J. Uzomah

Both tight ends are getting a nice payday. The Buffalo Bills are signing former Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Kroft to a three-year, $18.75 million contract, according to Ian Rapoport. It’s a very similar deal to what the Bengals are giving C.J. Uzomah. Both tight ends were part of the Bengals’ 2015 NFL Draft class, which winds up producing two players who just signed three-year deals worth a combined $36+ million. Kroft will mainly be remembered for his seven-score season in 2017 as Cincinnati’s primary tight end. He also hauled in 42 passes for 404 yards. Still, coming into...

2018 Bengals position review: Tight ends

2018 Bengals position review: Tight ends

Although C.J. Uzomah stepped up as the starter in 2018, the unit could be completely different this year. So much is unknown about the state of the Bengals’ tight ends. For a handful of years, they’ve had a solid trio that have all incurred plenty of starting experience, but injuries have limited what we’ve seen from all three together. Now, all three of those players’ contracts are set to expire next week, and stability at the position is a major risk for Cincinnati. Before potential turmoil takes place, let’s review what the Bengals had at tight end for the 2018 season. Key...
