PFF has a surprising name in mind for Bengals in free agency

PFF has a surprising name in mind for Bengals in free agency

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports And it’s not an offensive lineman or a linebacker.

Pro Football Focus listed one player each team needs to pursue in free agency and landed on Kansas City...

PFF quantifies Bengals’ 2019 draft class as the least valuable in the NFL

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports The eye test would’ve told you the same thing. The long-term impact Joe Burrow can provide for the Cincinnati Bengals is the ultimate goal. Before that, just having him produce in a meaningful way this year would bring something this franchise hasn’t seen in a while: a first-round pick being effective in his rookie season. This was something that, once again, the Bengals didn’t have last year, and it was a sizable reason why Pro Football Focus’ Wins Above Replacement metric scored the Bengals’ 2019 draft class as the least valuable in the NFL last...

Bengals Exit Interview: Trey Hopkins

Bengals Exit Interview: Trey Hopkins

Photo by: 2019 Nick Cammett/Diamond Images via After a long five years, Trey Hopkins has more than earned the designation of being a core piece along the Bengals’ offensive line. The benching of Billy Price in favor of Trey Hopkins signified the true shift in managerial approach Bengals fans craved after the hiring of head coach Zac Taylor. A promising seven-start stretch at the center position in 2018 made Hopkins the obvious choice at the position moving forward in 2019, and a quick and definitive competition between him and Price proved that. Hopkins took over in the middle of the...

History shows that drafting a QB high won’t change your team overnight

Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports How have teams who have earned top 10 picks faired after drafting a quarterback? Perhaps the worst kept secret in the NFL is that the Bengals are poised to take LSU quarterback Joe Burrow with the first pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
