Clint Boling among PFF's top 75 free agents; Jermaine Gresham not included

Jermaine Gresham isn't getting much love from Pro Football Focus. We're now less than a week from the start of NFL free agency, and the Bengals have still not been able to re-sign any of their key players whose contracts are expiring. Tight end Jermaine Gresham and guard Clint Boling are the two biggest names set to hit the market, and both have played key roles in helping Cincinnati make four straight playoff appearances. Pro Football Focus' top 75 free agents only features one Bengals player, and it's Boling: 29. Clint Boling, Offensive Guard: Boling’s game picked up again in the...

Poll: Who would you rather Bengals re-sign: Jermaine Gresham or Rey Maualuga?

The Bengals could be losing both Jermaine Gresham and Rey Maualuga in free agency, but if you had to pick one, who would you want back more? NFL.com recently released their Top 101 Free Agents for 2015, and coming in near the bottom of the list were two longtime Bengals starters. Linebacker Rey Maualuga and tight end Jermaine Gresham have been two of the most controversial figures in Cincinnati during the past five years, mostly for the wrong reasons, and both are slated to hit free agency, That's why it was no surprise both players were listed in their 'Needs the right role' tier of free...

Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham appeared on Sirius/XM NFL Radio on Thursday and made the somewhat surprising declaration that he'd like to return to The Queen City. While fans love to think that they know all of the dynamics in a professional sports organization's locker room, sometimes things just aren't what they seem. Case in point could be Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham, a former first round selection slated for free agency in about a week and a half.

Quick Snap: Combine numbers for Bengals tight ends

Continuing our look into the combine numbers recorded by Bengals players (on the team's current roster), we focus on the tight end position. Not much surprised us here. Tyler Eifert is a gifted athlete and if we're comparing his combine numbers to the rest of the team's tight ends (and Ryan Hewitt), at least in that perspective his athleticism holds. Then again, Kevin Brock is comparable. TIGHT ENDS Bench 40-Time Vertical Broad 3-Cone 20-yard Shuttle 60-yard Shuttle Jermaine Gresham 20 4.72s 35" 113" 7.07s 4.53s 11.88s Tyler...

Bengals Offseason Positional Outlook: Tight Ends

We continue our offseason positional outlook by taking a look at a position group that enters the 2015 offseason clouded with the most uncertainty and is likely to see the most change from 2014 to 2015.

Unfortunately, any plan Hue had for Eifert...

NFL free agency 2015: Bengals, TE Jermaine Gresham likely to part ways

The former first round pick may be shopping for a new team in 2015, per a Cincinnati Enquirer report. The Bengals haven't gotten much from tight end Jermaine Gresham. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the team may be prepared to move on from the pending free agent. Paul Dehner Jr.'s write-up wasn't kind. Jermaine Gresham is all talent, no trust. His inability to play through injury and continued mistakes with fumbles and penalties make for a good possibility that he and the team part ways. The Bengals have a strong blocking tight end in Ryan Hewitt, and the assumed return of Tyler...
