Bengals 53-man roster: Final prediction

Bengals 53-man roster: Final prediction

Photo by Michael Hickey/ Final cuts are coming soon, so we took one more stab at predicting the Bengals’ 53-man roster. The preseason is complete, which means the Bengals are finalizing their 53-man roster for the 2019 season. Of course, the roster will change throughout the season as players return from injuries, others go down with their own injury, and better players become available through waivers. But for now, we’re focusing on what the 53-man roster will look like for Week 1 vs. the Seahawks. Here is our final projection: Quarterbacks (2): Andy Dalton and Ryan Finley Jeff...

Should Jake Dolegala make the Bengals’ final 53-man roster?

Should Jake Dolegala make the Bengals’ final 53-man roster?

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Has the undrafted rookie shown enough in the preseason to care out a spot on the team’s final 2019 roster? The Cincinnati Bengals have some very tough decisions to make this coming weekend. As the team wrapped up its final preseason game of 2019, it appears another quandary has reared its head in the quarterback position group. Rookie Ryan Finley has had a great preseason and has taken a stranglehold on the backup quarterback spot behind starter Andy Dalton. The performances of both Finley and Jake Dolegala has seemingly made Jeff Driskel expendable. Maybe...

OPEN THREAD: Bengals vs. Colts first half

One more tuneup before the real thing. The Bengals wrap up preseason play tonight when the Colts invade Paul Brown Stadium. This will be a game dominated by backups and guys looking to secure their spot on the 53-man roster. We’ll likely see a lot of Ryan Finley and Jake Dolegala at quarterback tonight, as Andy Dalton won’t play much, if it all, while Jeff Driskel is sitting out again due to injury. We’ll also see guys like Josh Malone, Andrew Brown, Deshaun Davis, Tony McRae, Mason Schreck and Brandon Wilson fight to secure their spots on the 53-man roster or risk being waived...

Michael Jordan will “be a really good player,” according to one Bengals lineman

Photo by Patrick McDermott/ Michael Jordan has looked good so far, but he’s still far from a finished product. Michael Jordan was the Bengals fourth-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and like fellow fourth-round selection Ryan Finley, he’s played like a seasoned veteran so far this preseason. Expected to be a starter at some point this season, Jordan has been provided the opportunity to shine as the Bengals have been heavily struggling to find capable bodies on the offensive line. Jordan’s work has been well recognized by both the team’s staff and his teammates. According to...
