Free agency 2015: The enigma of Jermaine Gresham

We're reviewing most of the team's free agents this month and wondering: Should they return, if they want to return or, and if we're at our very boldest, if they will return. Jermaine Gresham is perhaps the most interesting debate. When discussing the future of Jermaine Gresham with friends this year, I often find myself debating a defense. Yes... if you follow my Twitter feed I tend to play devil's advocate -- there isn't a greater irritation to me than mob-like opinions without consideration toward an alternative or, at the very least, an effort to approach a significant topic with an...

Bengals TE Kevin Brock to remain with the team in 2015

The Bengals re-signed TE Kevin Brock. The 6-foot-5 and 264 pound TE played in 15 games, recording five catches for 21 yards. Despite not having much success as a pass-catcher, Brock did excel as a run blocker. He had been cut by the team in late August, but was brought back after TE Alex Smith (biceps) was placed on injured reserve. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Both TE Jermaine Gresham and TE Alex Smith are eligible to become unrestricted free agents in March. Given Gresham's inflated salary and Smith's injury history, neither are likely to return to the team. Brock could, therefore, start 2015 behind...

Jermaine Gresham 'probably long gone'; Bengals expect Ryan Hewitt to replace him

Don't expect the Bengals to re-sign Jermaine Gresham once NFL free agency begins. As the Bengals begin planning for the offseason, Jermaine Gresham is one of several key players hitting free agency. The fifth-year tight end has had an up-and-down career to say the least, as he's never quite lived up to the billing of the 21st-overall pick in 2009. After a particularly rocky 2014 however, Gresham isn't exactly a favorite among both fans and coaches. There's a growing belief that he will not only be allowed to leave in free agency, but the Bengals will make no little to no effort to re-sign...

Bengals v Colts: Perfect storm of injury and ineptitude

The Cincinnati Bengals faced the Colts with significant injuries and plenty of ineptitude. This perfect storm led to being bounced from the first-round of the playoffs for the fourth straight year. The gameplan wasn't this. Tight end Jermaine Gresham (back) and wide receiver A.J. Green (concussion) were added to a long-list of injuries that significantly impacted an offense that was already missing tight end Tyler Eifert, wide receiver Marvin Jones and even starting right tackle Andre Smith -- which required the signing of Eric Winston after Marshall Newhouse struggled as Smith's...

Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham out for Sunday's Wildcard Game at Indianapolis

Tight end Jermaine Gresham, who injured his back in the Bengals' Week 17 game versus Pittsburgh, will not play Sunday when Cincinnati takes on the Indianapolis Colts in the Wildcard Round. Gresham missed practice most of the week, but was limited on Friday, leading to optimism that he'd play today. However, he was unable to get it loose enough in pre-game warm-ups and the team has officially ruled him out. The tight end's absence will be big, as Gresham was second on the team this season with 72 receptions. WRs A.J. Green and Dane Sanzenbacher were also both ruled out earlier in the week....

Bengals v Colts: Jermaine Gresham and A.J. Green are out

The Cincinnati Bengals won't have tight end Jermaine Gresham and wide receiver A.J. Green on Sunday while the Colts are missing offensive linemen Hugh Thornton and A.Q. Shipley. As the Bengals prepared to face the Colts in their wild-card matchup, there were few surprises for both sides on the inactive list. In addition to wide receiver A.J. Green being out with a concussion, tight end Jermaine Gresham was unable to go due to a back injury. That leaves h-back Ryan Hewitt and blocking specialist Kevin Brock as the only two options at that spot. With rookie James Wright also out, that leaves...

Bengals v Colts: Jermaine Gresham won't play Sunday

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham is visibly frustrated during pregame workouts on Sunday and won't play against the Indianapolis Colts. Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham did some light work and some stretching Sunday morning for Cincinnati's wildcard game against the Indianapolis Colts. According to media reports, Gresham caught the football on the first throw but then slammed the football in disgust. One report added that Gresham is "not running around smoothly" while another added that "it doesn't look good" for Gresham, based on his body language. Gresham told Kimberly...

Bengals v Colts: Jermaine Gresham is a gametime decision

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham is being described as a gametime decision after suffering a back injury against the Steelers. ESPN NFL Insider John Clayton also doubts that A.J. Green will play. Cincinnati has second and goal from the Steelers five-yard line with 11:20 remaining in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Andy Dalton fakes the handoff to Giovani Bernard and waits. Before Jermaine Gresham could initiate his route, he was assigned a quick block that was designed to give Clint Boling time to pick up Jason Worilds. After initial contact with the linebacker, Gresham...

Cincinnati Bengals v Indianapolis Colts: Friday Practice Update

Jermaine Gresham returned to practice on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday with a back issue. James Wright is also out Friday and doesn't appear likely for Sunday's game against the Colts. As we've already pointed out on Friday, Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green remains under concussion protocols and joined his teammates on the field wearing sweats. Green will finish the week having missed two practices and being limited on Thursday -- though that session in of itself was limited to a few stretches. Let's call it three missed practices and one accepted practice. Tight end Jermaine...

Jermaine Gresham leaves Steelers vs. Bengals with multiple injuries

If Jermaine Gresham is out the rest of they and into the NFL playoffs, Kevin Brock and Ryan Hewitt have to step up. For nearly four quarters, Jermaine Gresham tried his best to overcome a back injury and make an impact in the Bengals' biggest game of the year. At the 11:14 mark of the fourth quarter, Gresham hauled in a two-yard pass and fought through two Steelers defenders to get three more yards and into the end zone for the score. However, Gresham remained on the ground holding his knee in pain, and he was eventually helped off the field by two trainers. To that point, Gresham had been...
