Explaining Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams' social media activity this offseason

Williams has drawn the attention of many wish his recent twitter activity, what does all of this mean? DeAngelo Williams is very active on social media - particularly in regards to his family and his tremendous work in the fight against breast cancer. In my opinion, he's a pretty fun guy to follow online. His tweets and Facebook posts are funny, but some of his more recent activity has drawn some mixed reactions. First, he tweeted about Peyton Manning's 2015 season which led to many negative reactions from all over the NFL. Then, he entered a twitter argument with Bengals linebacker Vontaze...

DeAngelo Williams, Steelers fans want to face Bengals in Week 1

Could that perhaps be because the Bengals will be down at least one key player in Week 1? I'm starting to feel like the DeAngelo Williams correspondent here on Cincy Jungle, and I'm becoming less and less okay with that because the dude seems to Tweet about the Bengals every day. On Thursday, the Steelers running back Tweeted out to his followers, asking who they want to see Pittsburgh open the season against in Week 1. So the NFL schedule comes out tomorrow which has me wondering, who do you wanna see us play in Week 1? #Bengals — DeAngelo Williams (@DeAngeloRB) April 14,...

State of AFC North: Cleveland playing copycat; DeAngelo Williams makes more headlines; OSU to Baltimore for Elliott?

The Ravens are still waiting on Breshad Perriman to fully heal from his PCL injury. The Browns are looking to streamline their scouting department, and DeAngelo Williams is making news with more AFC North opponents. The Baltimore Ravens have made it a point to surround Joe Flacco with better talent this offseason, but one receiver is still not coming along as quickly as planned. The Browns have handed out several pink slips to their scouting department, but what will they do from there? DeAngelo Williams made news twice this week. Both times involved an opponent from the AFC North but for...

NFL Draft Rumors: Western Michigan WR Daniel Braverman meeting with Bengals

Daniel Braverman is drawing comparisons to NFL players like Julian Edelman, Wes Welker and Brandon Stokley. The Pro Day circuit has come and gone, which means we'll now see more prospects begin to have private workout and/or meetings with various NFL teams prior to the start of the NFL Draft. The Cincinnati Bengals are continuing to look at many of this year's wide receiver prospects, whether they're first-round or seventh-round prospects. Western Michigan's Daniel Braverman is more likely to end up in the latter, but that doesn't mean he isn't getting significant NFL interest. I'm...

Bengals Bytes 4/11): Quite the roomates

A suspect has been arrested in the death of ex-Ohio State player Will Smith. Meanwhile Johnny Manziel and Von Miller seem to be living out a sitcom, and meet the fastest player in the draft. Suspect arrested in death of ex-OSU star Will SmithFormer New Orleans Saints player Will Smith was shot and killed Saturday in what appeared to be a road rage incident that has shocked fans of the much-beloved athlete. An emailed statement from New Orleans city coroner Jeffrey C. Rouse said that Smith died "of multiple gunshot wounds" after a traffic accident in the city's Lower Garden District. The...

Mike Brown turned down Marvin Lewis' pitch for a Hue Jackson succession plan

Marvin Lewis just signed another contract extension with the Bengals, but an original plan in his negotiations included a succession plan for Hue Jackson to become head coach down the road. On Friday, the Cincinnati Bengals pulled what some are calling an "expected surprise" by extending the contract of head coach Marvin Lewis through 2017.  Talks between the parties had been ensuing since the conclusion of the 2015 season, and though feelings are mixed on the extension because of Lewis' 0-7 playoff record as a head coach, many believed it would happen regardless. Around the same time the...

Bengals Mailbag: Marvin Lewis' contract status, running back swap-outs

Our questions in this week's mailbag contain one that has been a lingering issue since the playoff loss and another that has piqued interest with some rumors of late, which quickly were put to rest. Send us your questions to be answered in this weekly feature! All eyes are on the NFL Draft, which is set to take place at the end of the month, but other odd issues are bubbling to the surface with the Bengals. Some of those issues, like some Steeler hatred toward Vontaze Burfict, just won't go away, while others have also been long-lingering issues with recent news pushing it back into the...

NFL Draft Profile: Ross Martin, K

Martin is a very accurate kicker at all distances. Should the Bengals consider him as a replacement for Mike Nugent? Ross Martin isn't the most highly regarded kicker in the 2016 NFL Draft, but he is someone who could hear his name called during the draft, which isn't a given for even the best kickers. Martin is a three-time honorable mention All-America choice by Sports Illustrated (2012, 2014 and 2015), a four-time All-ACC selection and Martin represented Duke in the Reese’s Senior Bowl back in January. Could he be a kicker the Bengals look to take on during the final year of Mike...

Have Bengals gotten better since 2015 NFL season?

Someone has to ask the question: have the Bengals improved this offseason? We've talked about the moves the Bengals have made, reviewed offseason grades, discussed draft needs and covered everything that's needed to be covered this offseason, but we've yet to answer one question here at Cincy Jungle: Have the Bengals gotten better this offseason? On the surface of the issue, it's easy to look at the Bengals' losses (Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Andre Smith, Emmanuel Lamur, Wallace Gilberry, Reggie Nelson) and a player they've yet to re-sign (Leon Hall) and conclude that the Bengals are...

Jonathan Williams Interview: Arkansas RB discusses his injury and decision to declare for the NFL Draft

The running back prospect addresses a variety of topics, including why he left college with another potential year of eligibility remaining. This week, Acme Packing Company's Doug Moore spoke with another NFL Draft prospect, former Arkansas Razorbacks running back Jonathan Williams. The 5'11", 220-pound running back sat out the 2015 season with an injury after an impressive junior season that saw him post over 1,200 yards on the ground and 14 total touchdowns. Williams did not participate in drills at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine while recovering from the injury, but did work at his Pro...

Gary Barnidge, DeAngelo Williams make hilarious friendship video

Williams posted a video on Twitter featuring the two frolicking together on a playground.

Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams and Browns TE Gary Barnidge prove rivals can be friends too

The Pittsburgh Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams took to Instagram to prove rivals can be friends off the field...in a very weird, and funny, way. Social media and sports typically don't mix. There are the exceptions to the rule, but most of the time fans take the instant access to athletes too far, and athletes can be a bit oversensitive from time to time. What most rarely see is the instance when two professional athletes take jabs at one another, like Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams and Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict did recently. After Williams found himself under the social media microscope,...

Steelers' DeAngelo Williams and Bengals' Vontaze Burfict get into fight on Twitter

Oh boy... You didn't think the feud from the Bengals and Steelers' playoff game in January was over, did you? We know you didn't as the NFL has brought to our attention detail after detail of mistakes made in the officiating and rule changes sparked by the game. We (and seemingly the players, too) just cannot move on from this loss, even though it was three months ago. On Wednesday, Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams shared his ill-advised opinion that the Steelers would have made a run at the Super Bowl if not for Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict's tackle on Antonio Brown. Williams...

Bengals worked out Central Michigan safety Kavon Frazier

In their pursuit of depth at the safety position, the Bengals are looking at a prospect out of Central Michigan. When the Bengals re-signed George Iloka to a new, 5-year contract, the safety position went from being one of the biggest needs on the team to a mid-level need at best. Losing Reggie Nelson doesn't help, but some impressive performances from Shawn Williams in 2015 indicate the Bengals aren't in the market for a starter at the position. However, they do seem to be taking a strong look at potential depth players like Kavon Frazier of Central Michigan, who they worked out a few...

NFL Draft 2016: Adolphus Washington to meet with Bengals

From Buckeye to Bengal? The NFL draft is inching closer as the Pro Day circuit winds down this week. That's why we're beginning to see more and more news of prospects having private workouts with various NFL teams, including the Cincinnati Bengals. The latest prospect Cincinnati has been confirmed to be meeting with is Ohio State Buckeyes defensive lineman Adolphus Washington. This, according to Washington's father, who adds that April 19th is when he'll work out for the Bengals after meeting the New England Patriots on April 13th.
