Andrew Whitworth ready to leave Bengals for Super Bowl contender, per report

The Giants might be the team Andrew Whitworth is looking for. It was reported on Monday that the Cincinnati Bengals will attempt to re-sign left tackle Andrew Whitworth. The problem for the Bengals is that Whitworth is not expected to accept their offer.  He would rather hit the open market and play for a Super Bowl […] The post Andrew Whitworth ready to leave Bengals for Super Bowl contender, per report appeared first on Blogging Big Blue.

Bengals Bytes (2/19): Back to the dance

Bengals Bytes (2/19): Back to the dance

What the Bengals can do to get back into the playoffs. The Ravens want play makers, and they don’t care how big they are. The Dolphins reward one of the NFL’s best pass rushers. Bengals' Playoff Excuses Won't Be Tolerated This Season Hopefully, a new beginning and a new set of weapons will make a difference. As fans watched the Cincinnati Bengals flounder along to a 6-9-1 record, they looked nothing like the 2015 version. The promises that kept diehard believers glued to televisions and full of hope ended with a meaningless win over the Baltimore Ravens. Well, at least the victory kept...

Comparing Bengals’ first and second round draft picks

Comparing Bengals’ first and second round draft picks

Have the Bengals’ second round picks been better than the team’s first rounders? It's a fair question to ask as Cincinnati has often drafted well in the second round and taken (too much) time to play their first rounders. After getting little production from their first-round picks of the last three years, the Bengals will have a great opportunity to boost their squad with an impact player via the ninth pick in this year’s NFL Draft. Can we trust Marvin Lewis and company to get it right? Since that 2011 offseason that saw long-tenured quarterback-wide receiver duo, Carson Palmer and...

Deep cornerback free agent market could impact Dre Kirkpatrick

Deep cornerback free agent market could impact Dre Kirkpatrick

Pro Football Focus ranks six cornerbacks ahead of Kirkpatrick on its list of the best free agent cornerbacks set to hit the open market. 45 cornerbacks are currently set to hit the open market when free agency kicks off on March 9. Bengals cornerback, two-year starter and former 2012 first round draft pick Dre Kirkpatrick is among them. Depending on who you ask, Kirkpatrick’s rank among those 45 cornerbacks varies from top 5 to top 20. Some of the guys who are expected to yield the biggest paydays among the free agent cornerback group are Logan Ryan, A.J. Bouye, Trumaine Johnson, Prince...

NFL Draft: Bengals big board entering NFL Combine

NFL Draft: Bengals big board entering NFL Combine

Who will the Bengals pick with the ninth overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft? The 2017 NFL Draft is nearing, and while it’s still off in the distance — every team’s draft needs will at least somewhat change during the free agency period — Draft season is already underway. As you surely know by now, the Cincinnati Bengals hold the number nine pick in the 2017 Draft. Already in the best draft position since drafting A.J. Green and Andy Dalton in 2011, Cincinnati will also likely benefit from an abundance of draft capital as the team is projected to have 11 total picks due to four...

Bengals Bytes (2/18): Targets

A few players the Bengals should target in the offseason. Why Victor Cruz doesn’t fit with the Ravens. Michael Floyd sentenced to 120 days of jail. Hobson's Choice: Combine-ing efforts Giovani Bernard (ACL) is having maybe the greatest rehab offseason since Leon Hall’s first Achilles’ reconstruction. If not, then since Leon Hall’s second Achilles’ reconstruction, so I’m willing to wager that barring a setback he won’t go on PUP. Maybe he’ll miss the first one or two games of the regular season, but I think that’s it. That’s merely a gut call, so we’ll see. After what...

4-Round NFL mock draft gives Bengals new name at DE

4-Round NFL mock draft gives Bengals new name at DE

Expect the Bengals to upgrade their defense with their first pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, which may come with the selection of a defensive end. Through the early portion of the mock draft season, defensive end has been the slight favorite for the pick the Bengals address with the No. 9 selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. That’s what NFL.com’s Chad Reuter has Cincinnati addressing in his latest 4-round mock draft. However, it’s not Stanford’s Solomon Thomas or Tennessee’s Derek Barnett going there, as those two have been the most common pass-rushers mocked to the Bengals in Round...

Bengals Mailbag: Fan mock draft, Leonard Fournette’s value

Bengals Mailbag: Fan mock draft, Leonard Fournette’s value

Our crew was given a mock draft to peruse this week, as well as another that again asks the question of how appealing Leonard Fournette is to the Bengals. A critical part of the Cincinnati Bengals’ offseason is figuring out of which positions need upgrades and which can be placed on the back-burner. A handful of spots readily jump out for improvement, which almost-unanimously include linebacker, defensive end and wide receiver. On The Orange and Black Insider, we’ve been fielding listener questions and with free agency and the NFL Draft ramping up, OBI listeners have been sending some...

NFL Draft: Is cornerback in play for Bengals at No. 9?

NFL Draft: Is cornerback in play for Bengals at No. 9?

The BPA approach might suggest that corner is the way to go at No. 9. When it comes to the first round of the NFL Draft, the Bengals have often taken the best player on their big board, regardless of position. That’s frequently led to the team drafting players at positions that weren’t viewed as needs. Whether it was Dre Kirkpatrick in 2012, Tyler Eifert in 2013, Cedric Ogbuehi in 2015 or William Jackson III just last year, the Bengals go with the best pick available regularly. That approach has typically worked out for the team, so don’t expect it to change this year. But does that...

Bengals Should Decide Soon Whether Or Not To Release Adam Jones

NFL Draft 2017: Mel Kiper’s top 10 cornerback prospects

NFL Draft 2017: Mel Kiper’s top 10 cornerback prospects

The Bengals have drafted a cornerback in the first round in three of the last four Drafts. It would seem unlikely that they’d be interested in one of this year’s top 10 cornerback prospects, but, never say never when it comes to the Bengals and first round cornerbacks. The Bengals’ cornerback position is a peculiar one. The team has spent three first round Draft picks at this spot since 2012, selecting Dre Kirkpatrick, Darqueze Dennard, and William Jackson III. In addition, the Bengals have been fielding Adam Jones, acquired in 2010 after stints with the Titans and Cowboys, as a...

How will the Bengals improve this offseason?

So many questions surround the Bengals as they look to get back to their playoff ways in 2017. We took to Facebook Live to answer the questions on the minds of our readers! It’s a new year and the Bengals are tinkering with ideas on how to improve their football team. After a 6-9-1 finish in 2016, very few positions should be off of the table for discussion—especially with some impending issues with players currently under contract and other important players set to hit free agency.

Are the Bengals on the decline, or can they reload for a successful 2017 season. Ray Lewis is thinking about becoming a coach. The Falcons could be facing their toughest test in the Super Bowl.

Study says Bengals vs Steelers is NFL’s second-most lopsided rivalry

Study says Bengals vs Steelers is NFL’s second-most lopsided rivalry

It’s no secret that the games have largely gone Pittsburgh’s way, but a new study proves the rivalry goes beyond just the win-loss column. It’s obvious that the Steelers are the Bengals’ top rival in the eyes of Cincinnati fans, but if you ask a Pittsburgh die-hard, you might get a different answer. Steelers fans usually scoff at the notion of Cincinnati being their biggest rivals, but with public comments made by the likes of Ben Roethlisberger about players on the Bengals’ defense, it’s obvious they’ve gotten under Steel Town’s skin. Still, Steelers fans can easily point...

2017 Senior Bowl: Players to watch for Bengals

We take a look at some of the NFL prospects Bengals fans should be keeping an eye on during Saturday’s Senior Bowl. With the NFL offseason almost here for all 32 teams (with just the Patriots and Falcons still to meet in Super Bowl 51), the focus is shifting toward the 2017 NFL Draft and the draftable prospects. The Scouting Combine, college pro days and all-star games are all part of the pre-draft process, and the Senior Bowl is the next major event. Saturday’s game will feature a host of draftable prospects, some of whom will sneak into the first round of April’s draft, but more of...

Bengals met with East Carolina wide receiver Zay Jones at Senior Bowl

Bengals met with East Carolina wide receiver Zay Jones at Senior Bowl

The Bengals looked at the East Carolina standout to potentially add to their roster in this year’s Draft. Wide receiver isn’t exactly a position of dire need for the Bengals heading into 2017. Although, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to bring in another player to push guys in the current receiving corps, especially a guy like James Wright who struggles to find playing time. And, adding speedy threat to the group should be something the Bengals are looking to do. Therefore, it is no surprise that the Bengals, according to Walter Football, met with East Carolina University standout Zay...

3 former Bengals playing in Super Bowl 51

Both Super Bowl teams have at least one former Bengals player suiting up for the big game. Matt Lengel, James Develin and Mohamed Sanu. What do these three players have in common? They’re all going to Super Bowl 51 and they’re all former Bengals players. Lengel and Develin will be suiting up for the New England Patriots, while Sanu has played a major role in getting the Atlanta Falcons to the their first Super Bowl in nearly two decades. These three players are doing what the Bengals have been unable to do since 1989, they are heading to the biggest game of the year and you can bet many...
