Bengals Bytes (5/13): Buckeyes invading Cincinnati

The Bengals have several Ohio State players on their roster after rarely taking advantage of the pipeline of talent across Ohio. Looking at Darqueze Dennard's extension costsFollowing the breakout season of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard, the team decided to place the fifth-year option on the former 2014 first-round pick. Even with the departure of former cornerback Adam Jones, Cincinnati looks to have a dangerous secondary this coming season.

Sojourn Shelton looking to make big leap with Bengals in 2018

Sojourn Shelton looking to make big leap with Bengals in 2018

After a season on the practice squad, Sojourn Shelton is looking for more in 2018. Cracking the Bengals’ final 53-man roster as a defensive back will prove very challenging in 2018. That’s especially true at cornerback, where the Bengals already have roster locks in Dre Kirkpatrick, William Jackson and Darqueze Dennard. Then you’ve got veterans Josh Shaw and KeiVarae Russell battling draftees Devontae Harris and Darius Phillips for final available spots. But don’t count out Sojourn Shelton. Shelton was an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin who signed with the Cardinals...

You need to hear Bengals DT Andrew Brown’s music

You need to hear Bengals DT Andrew Brown’s music

The Bengals’ new defensive tackle has a passion for music and it’s actually pretty great. NFL players turning to music is becoming a bit of a trend. Le’Veon Bell released a rap song in 2016 and former NFL running back Arian Foster is heading to the recording booth, too. Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick even reportedly was launching a record label last year, though it’s unclear how that’s progressed. Kirkpatrick may have something to talk to new Bengals defensive tackle Andrew Brown about once Brown makes his way to Cincinnati for rookie minicamp this week. The former Virginia...

Social media reactions to Bengals’ picking Andrew Brown, Davontae Harris & Darius Phillips

The Bengals had a busy fifth round of the NFL draft with three picks. It’s been a busy weekend for the Cincinnati Bengals and day three is no exception. The team had three picks in the fifth round and the route they took was a little surprising to some. With the No. 151 overall pick, Cincinnati tapped Illinois State for cornerback Davontae Harris.

There is talk of Harris having versatility to play safety as well. With...
