Breaking Down Pat Sims' Two Year With the Oakland Raiders

We take a look back at Pat Sims' time with the Oakland Raiders to explain what went wrong, what went right, and what to expect of Sims in 2015. Pat Sims was drafted by the Bengals in 2008 as a third round pick out of Auburn. As it stands, Sims is the only player from that Cincinnati draft class currently on the roster. After fulfilling his four-year rookie contract, Sims signed a one-year deal to remain with the Bengals for the 2012 season. He was still recovering from an ankle injury that landed him on Injured Reserve in the previous season, so he spent the first nine weeks on the...

Bengals attend Utah Pro Day

Dres Anderson, Nate Orchard and Eric Rowe were among the top NFL prospects at Utah's Pro Day. The Bengals were among all 32 NFL teams represented at Utah's pro day on Thursday. This isn't the first time Cincinnati has been associated with Utes this offseason. Marvin Lewis was present for a private workout with defensive end Nate Orchard. The 6'3", 250-pounder doesn't appear to have the frame the Bengals like in their defensive ends, but there's at least some interest between the two parties. As for others working out at Utah Pro Day, receiver Kaelin Clay ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46...

The 2015 Bengals Offseason: The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

It was supposed to be an offseason of "change", according to those associated with the Bengals' brain trust. A few weeks into the new league year, it's evident that fans were told a half-truth. What thoughts went through your mind when Marvin Lewis said that "changes" were coming to the Bengals this offseason? As he spoke with reporters at both the Senior Bowl and Scouting Combine, he reiterated the "status quo" wasn't good enough and almost sent pleas to fans to get ready for an exciting offseason. Well, almost a month into the new NFL calendar year and the consensus opinion seems to be a...

NFL Mock Draft: Replacements for Andre Smith and Andrew Whitworth

Both Bengals starting tackles are free agents next year, and one of them likely will need to be replaced. With the NFL Draft now a month away, many so-called experts see the Bengals taking an offensive lineman with the 21st-overall pick. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein has Cincinnati taking Miami's Ereck Flowers with their first-round pick, saying, "The Bengals could move Flowers to guard or prepare him to take over for the overrated Andre Smith after 2015. Either way, mean comes to town." There seems to be a growing belief Andre isn't going to re-sign with the Bengals next year, at least if he...

Cincinnati Bengals NFL Mock Draft Database

We're attempting to take mock drafts from around the internet and compile them in a database (well... an HTML table). With the NFL draft now a month away, we decided to updated the mock draft database to reflect the latest picks for the Bengals across various internet blogs and publications. Prior to free agency, Cincinnati was widely expected to draft a trench player with their first pick, but that's starting to change now that they've added Michael Johnson and Pat Sims while re-signing Clint Boling. Alabama safety Landon Collins is starting to get some run at pick No. 21, and with both...

Bengals Free Agency 2015 Rumors, News and Updates

Let's look at all of today's rumors and news updates regarding the Cincinnati Bengals. As soon as the team announced they were releasing defensive end Robert Geathers, the beat notoriously (and predictably) either spoke with the language of a press release or diverted conversation into the locker room. After Cincinnati went 2-14 in 2002, the recently-hired Marvin Lewis identified a desperate need to change the team's culture. Within two years, he signed defensive tackle John Thornton, defensive end Duane Clemons, guard Bobbie Williams, tight end Reggie Kelly (among other free agent...

Tracking Cincinnati Bengals free agency rumors

Charting the rumors and reports concerning Bengals free agents and new players that Cincinnati plans to sign in 2015. If you see anything that we're missed, let us know (via email if possible). Since we're still in the infancy stages of free agency -- dubbed legal tampering (an oxymoron probably created by a moron), information, news and reports concerning the Cincinnati Bengals is a bit quiet. We're not surprised -- the Bengals hate publicity and rarely choreograph their moves until they're nearing completion. How many times were you just enjoying the day when BOOM, an extension is...

NFL Draft: Projected Rookie Pool and Effective Cap Cost

Figuring out how cap space and rookie pools relate is no easy task, but every NFL team should have little to no problem getting their rookie draft picks signed. The Cincinnati Bengals will have nine picks in the upcoming NFL Draft, four of which will be in the top 100. Though they don't have a high pick in the first round, Cincinnati will still be allocating a large chunk of money to rookies in 2015 if they keep all of their picks. As of now, Over the Cap projects the Bengals to have a rookie pool of $5,840,929 once the draft is over. That would be the 16th biggest pool of all 32 teams,...

Bengals Bites (3/27) - Getting The Gang Back Together

Bengals attend ECU Pro Day, likely for Justin Hardy

Shane Carden and Justin Hardy were the two guys to watch. The Bengals were among all 32 NFL clubs at East Carolina's Pro Day on Thursday. As mentioned earlier, adding another receiver would be ideal at some point in Round 3 or later, and Justin Hardy was one of the best in college over his career. In fact, Hardy is the FBS' all-time leader in receptions (387), but he's not someone the Bengals would have to spend a high pick on. The 5-10, 190-pounder runs in the 4.4s in the 40-yard dash, and he can beat defenders in a variety of ways. Hardy finished his college career with 387 catches...

Bengals Sign Defensive Tackle Pat Sims

In what's becoming a trend this offseason, the Cincinnati Bengals have brought back a familiar face on defense in lineman Pat Sims. The big guy is back and it's officially a trend in the Queen City. Per multiple sources, the Cincinnati Bengals have brought back defensive tackle Pat Sims. Per Paul Dehner, it's a veteran-minimum one-year deal for $870,000. Cincinnati originally drafted Sims in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Auburn University. He stayed with the club for five seasons and was part of a valuable rotation on the defensive front. Sims adds bulk and potential push to...

NFL Mock Draft: Bengals take pair of DBs in Yahoo 2-Rounder

Landon Collins is the best safety in this year's draft, but would the Bengals take him at No. 21? The Bengals have plenty of depth at defensive back, but that could be changing soon. Leon Hall, Reggie Nelson, George Iloka and Adam Jones and Chris Lewis-Harris are all set to have their contracts expire next year, and Dre Kirkpatrick may not have his fifth-year option picked up. That might explain why Yahoo! Sports has the Bengals taking a defensive back with each of their first two picks this year. It starts in the first round with Alabama's Landon Collins, who's regarded as the best...

Bengals eye Jamison Crowder at Duke Pro Day

Jamison Crowder could be the missing link in the Bengals offense and special teams. The Bengals may want to draft a better slot receiver than what they currently have on their roster. The Bengals badly missed Andrew Hawkins this past season, and they never found a slot receiver to replace him. Mohamed Sanu tried but was also forced to play out wide with injuries to A.J. Green and Marvin Jones throughout the season. It's unclear if Sanu will move back to the slot, or if he even should be in the top three of the WR rotation. That's where a guy like Jamison Crowder could fit in. The 5-9,...

Why Bengals can now sign decent NFL free agents

For many years it seems like free agents were somewhat afraid to take and come to the Queen City to play for the Bengals, a team that has still never been able to win a Super Bowl. Check to NFL Odds to Win the AFC North Division at Mybookie.ag. This offseason saw the Bengals bring […]

Randy Gregory Failed Combine Drug Test; May Slide in NFL Draft

Randy Gregory was once viewed as a consensus top-three NFL Draft prospect, but it's not even a certainty now that he goes in the top 10. One of the top prospects in this year's NFL Draft could be in for a big slide on Draft Day. Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory admitted Wednesday he failed a drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine for marijuana use. Failing any drug test isn't good, but failing one during the biggest job interview of your life can cause any big-time prospect to slide in the draft. "I blame myself," Gregory said. "And I know it sounds cliché, but there's really no one...

Bengals' Jonathan Hayes meets with E.J. Bibbs at Iowa State Pro Day

A new tight end to watch for the Bengals? The Bengals sent tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes to Iowa State's Pro Day on Wednesday. Hayes was on hand to see tight end E.J. Bibbs, who he ran an unofficial 40-yard dash time of 4.86 seconds, jumped 31.5 inches and put up 22 reps on the bench press, according to reporters on the scene. After the workout, Bibbs spent close to 30 minutes with the Bengals, working the white board and interviewing, according to Walter Football.

Leah Still officially declared in remission; Devon offers heartfelt comments

"March 25th , however, is feeling like the best day of my life," the Bengals DT said via Instagram on Wednesday. Last week Devon Still announced on Instagram that the doctors found there was no active cancer left in Leah Still's body, but that the father-daughter duo still had to wait for her MRI and bone biopsy results. Well, those results have come in and after 296 days of fighting a hard fight, Leah is officially in remission. June 2, 2014 and March 25, 2015 are days I will remember for the rest of my life. As everyone probably knows, June 2nd was the day doctors walked into the...
