The Bengals have a very talented roster. Who will they add to it with the 24th pick in the 2014 Battle Red Blog Mock Draft? Back in the good old days when the Houston Texans won more than two games a season and even appeared in the playoffs, the Cincinnati Bengals were a familiar foe. So much has changed. In the blink of an eye. Or the blink of a season, as it were. You know...oh, right. Mock draft. The Bengals are up, and here's hlc1221 with the pick.

APC Mock Draft 2014: Bengals select Bradley Roby

The Bengals add a talented defensive back to their impressive defense. Continuing on with the Acme Packing Company Mock Draft, we break down the 24th overall pick held by the Cincinnati Bengals. Background My initial thought of the Cincinnati Bengals was that they remind me a lot of the Milwaukee Bucks. It is a team that sneaks into the playoffs every year (2013's Bucks not included) only to get shrugged off by a superior team in the first round. A perpetual good-but-not-good-enough team. Then I did a bit more digging, had some more coffee and realized that, while that analogy has some...

Vontaze Burfict and Bengals working on contract extension

Now that A.J. Green's option has been picked up and an extension for Andy Dalton hasn't yet to happen, it's time for Vontaze Burfict to get what he deserves. The Cincinnati Bengals have exercised the fifth-year option on Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green, and now it's time for the next order of business. The Bengals will now look to re-sign quarterback Andy Dalton to a manageable deal that ensures he remains the team's starting QB for the foreseeable future. But as they do that, they'll also be working on a new deal for Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict: #Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict, @NFL...

Liberty CB Walt Aikens visiting Cincinnati Bengals

Aikens has also visited Jaguars, Dolphins, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Bills, worked out for Cowboys, Falcons, Jaguars. Liberty cornerback Walt Aikens ended his seeing under the radar of many NFL scouts and GMS, but he turned enough heads at Senior Bowl practices in January to make them go to the tape and see a potential diamond in the rough. The 6-1, 205-pound Aikens should have plenty of appeal to NFL teams because of his size. Before he was a small-school prospect, he played at Illinois before transferring to Liberty. After a good showing at the Senior Bowl, Aikens put on a show at his Pro...

Tom Savage visited the Cincinnati Bengals

Tom Savage visited the Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals want to add a QB through the NFL Draft, and Tom Savage could be someone they look at. While Andy Dalton doesn't feel his team will draft a quarterback, the Cincinnati Bengals apparently have interest in one QB on in May’s NFL Draft. Per Albert Breer of NFL Network, former Pittsburgh quarterback Tom Savage could be the only one their interested in if their visit schedule is any indication: Interesting one here -- Pitt QB Tom Savage visited the Bengals in Cincinnati about a week ago. He's the one QB they've brought to town. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 20,...

Bengals exercise fifth-year option on A.J. Green

The Bengals have ensured that AJ Green will remain with the team for at least two more years. The best player on the Cincinnati Bengals roster is now locked-up for at least one more year. That's because the team exercised the fifth-year option on wide receiver A.J. Green, which means he has two years left on his rookie contract. Fifth-year options for Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, Bengals WR AJ Green and Steelers DL Cameron Heyward were officially exercised today. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) April 21, 2014 Because Green was a Top 10 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the option will pay...

Andy Dalton correctly answers critics but misjudges the criticism

It's one thing to win player of the month by dominating the Bills, Lions and Jets. It's quite another to beat division opponents, win during a primetime game, and achieve the holy grail in Cincinnati sports: Win an NFL playoff game. "Well, I’m very confident in what I’ve done. The people who are the critics, they look at all of the negatives. They don’t look at all of the stuff that I’ve accomplished. They don’t look at that I’m one of three quarterbacks in the history of the NFL to do certain things. They don’t look at that kind of stuff. They want to find ways to tear me...

Mock Draft 2014: Bengals go cornerback and center

Mock Draft 2014: Bengals go cornerback and center

The popular belief is that Cincinnati will go with a cornerback in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. Adam Jones is fine with that, but doesn't believe it should be a priority. In SB Nation's latest mock draft, no cornerbacks were taken in the first 14 picks. Five were then taken in the final 18 selections of the first round and five more in the second. Cincinnati selected one, Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert, at No. 24. Justin Gilbert may be the most talented cornerback in this draft, but he's still a bit unrefined in his technique. The Bengals likely won't mind, considering they...

Bengals begin offseason workouts

The Cincinnati Bengals, along with most of the NFL, begin their respective offseason training program. Normally speaking, April 21 would be a nondescript sunny day for Cincinnati with most people. A gentle breeze that offers another tease that we're really approaching summer after a miserable winter slapped us with a humble stick doesn't figure to be a day featuring the Bengals. After all, it's the day after Easter, on 4/20, shaking hands for one of the more economic beneficial days in April as people are slogging back to work. Including the Bengals, who will voluntarily begin their...
