Bengals teammates Matt Barkley and Vontaze Burfict once had some huge beef

Bengals backup quarterback Matt Barkley and linebacker Vontaze Burfict go all the way back to high school. The terms of their relationship were not friendly in the beginning. When AJ McCarron became a free agent, the Bengals brought in journeyman Matt Barkley to back up Andy Dalton. Barkley was drafted by the Eagles when Bill Lazor was the offensive coordinator in Philadelphia, and has bounced around the NFC for the past five years. He has only faced the Bengals once, in a 34-31 Cardinals victory on November 11th, 2015 as the third string quarterback for Arizona. So, Barkley met most of his...

Bengals LB Malik Jefferson can do pushups better than you

Because he can certainly do them better than me. Malik Jefferson knows he has a great opportunity in front of him. With Vontaze Burfict suspended for the first quarter of the season, his starting spot at Will linebacker is up for grabs. The most likely candidate to start there is 2017 sixth-round pick Jordan Evans, but Jefferson can make a meaningful impression in training camp and the preseason to keep his name in the conversation.

Bengals Bytes (6/23): The Bengals most important extension

We know a few Bengals who are entering contract season, but who is the most important one? Hobson's Choice: moves and groovesI don’t see the starting backers (Vontaze Burfict at WILL, Preston Brown at MIKE, Nick Vigil at SAM) getting pushed, but there are some intriguing questions. They see sophomore Jordan Evans as an emerging guy, so we’ll see if he can hold on to the WILL starting spot when Burfict begins his four-game suspension on Opening Day. Undrafted rookie Chris Worley has looked good enough early to pencil in a run at what figures to be Burfict’s Opening Day roster...
