Wes Welker suspended 4 games by NFL

The Denver Broncos will be without one of their key offensive weapons for the first four games of the 2014 NFL season. Wide receiver Wes Welker will be suspended for the first four games this year after testing positive for a performance enhancing substance. Per sources, Wes Welker has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's PED policy. It was for amphetamines. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 2, 2014 Welker's appeal happened two weeks ago. Parties were notified today that he lost the appeal. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 2, 2014 The Broncos were...

Kevin Vickerson joining Cincinnati Bengals

Kevin Vickerson joining Cincinnati Bengals

Kevin Vickerson initially posted the news on his Instagram account. The Cincinnati Bengals chose to carry just four defensive tackles on their initial 53-man roster. That's a bit risky, especially with Geno Atkins coming off a torn ACL. As it turns out, Kevin Vickerson is joining the Bengals. He initially posted the news on his Instagram account. Vickerson played with the Denver Broncos in 2013. The 31-year-old has started 43 career games, including 25 the past two seasons. Listed at 6-foot-5 and 328 pounds, Vickerson has 153 career tackles and 6.5 sacks in 71 games. This year, Vickerson...

After Two Decades, Mike Brown Listened

It took the public urging of some former players and a myriad of insults from fans, but Bengals owner Mike Brown finally went about running the organization the right way. Let's take a trip back in time, shall we? The Bengals were finishing up their most miserable season in franchise history in 2002 with a 2-14 finish and completed over a decade's worth of non-winning seasons. For those of you scoring at home, the last taste of the postseason that the Bengals had was after the 1990 season, when they lost in the Divisional Round to the then-Los Angeles Raiders. Many believe that that was...

Power Rankings: Bengals bathing in top-ten glory

It's time for us to get into the swing of things. So we continue the week with our favorite thing in the whole entire world... Power Rankings! NOTE: It's of our opinion that Power Rankings should be read with this in the background... Ah, power rankings -- the subjective ranking system, created from a writer's perspective on the best and worst teams, which evolves every week. There's little scientific basis other than men and women having access to a white board and magnetic strips that describe 32 teams. Let's slide someone there, then there, how about here. What's the difference between...

Prediction: Andy Dalton soars; Bengals win 12 and a playoff game

Most Bengals fans would take this. The 2014 NFL season is nearing, and the Cincinnati Bengals hope it's another playoff season, though this time one that ends after the Wild Card round. That's what CBS Sports' Pete Prisco believes the Bengals will do this year, and they'll do so behind the arm of Andy Dalton, who will have a career year. Andy Dalton will throw for 4,500 yards and 35 touchdown passes. The new-look offense with new coordinator Hue Jackson will make Dalton that much better. They have a ton of weapons and the way they use them will really help Dalton become a better...

Bengals Bites (9/2) - A healthy squad

Marvin Jones aside, the Bengals made it through the pre-season fairly healthy. What kind of Ravens team will the Bengals face? ESPN makes predictions for every Bengals game this season. Cincinnati Bengals exited preseason nearly unscathedWhile the rest of the Bengals were starting practice on the rain-softened grass fields Monday afternoon, receiver Marvin Jones was headed in the opposite direction. Slowed by a protective boot on his left foot, he walked down the paved path toward the trainer's room. With season opener Sunday vs. the Bengals, Ravens still face a few questions -...

Bengals have had success in the late rounds and UDFA signings

The past three seasons, the Bengals have done well in the late rounds and UDFA. The past three seasons, the Bengals have had mixed results in both the early (1-2) and middle rounds (3-4) of the NFL Draft. However, they have done well building their core in later rounds (5-7) and with their horde of undrafted free agent signings. A summary: 2012 Fifth round: Starting wide receiver Marvin Jones and starting safety George Iloka.Sixth round: RB Dan "Boom" Herron, who is on the Colts roster as a productive third back (he's done significantly better than Trent Richardson); Cincinnati also...

Marvin Lewis on Sean Porter: "We've got to give him every opportunity"

Bengals second-year linebacker Sean Porter won't play this weekend with a bum hamstring and may miss a couple of weeks. While he's angry and frustrated to be rehabilitating again, the Bengals continue to have patience. Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Sean Porter will have to wait... again. After a torn shoulder labrum shut down his rookie season in 2013, a knee injury significantly impacted training camp. Then when he was on the field ready to prove himself, a hamstring brought him down. And he's angry. "I wanted to really be able to prove to my teammates that I'm a good player, and that I...

Cobi Hamilton added to Cincinnati Bengals Practice Squad

The 2013 sixth-round pick out of Arkansas hasn't lived up to his potential to this point, but he's done enough to earn a spot on the practice squad. When the Cincinnati Bengals announced their 53-man roster, it was a small surprise that Cobi Hamilton wasn't on the roster. When the practice squad was announced, it was shocking to see the second-year receiver's name not on it, especially since no other NFL team claimed him. Perhaps, there was a plan all along to bring Hamilton back, as the team has now added him to the practice squad, according to the NFL's official transaction report. ...

Raiders tab Derek Carr over Matt Schaub to start at QB vs Jets

Derek Carr had his best game in Week 4 vs. the Seattle Seahawks, where he completed 11 of his 13 passes for 143 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. The Oakland Raiders have been a franchise where quarterbacks' careers go to die.They often find themselves with a veteran retread to start their season, and that looked to be the case this year once they acquired Matt Schaub vs. the Houston Texas. At his best, Schaub is a game manager, but that's an insult to game managers based on his 2013 play, as well as his play during the 2014 NFL preseason. On the other hand, rookie QB Derek Carr...

Sports Illustrated likes the Bengals and Ravens in the AFC North

Sports Illustrated previews every division in the league, predicting the running order from first to fourth. The Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens are first and second, respectively. It's irrefutable that the Cincinnati Bengals have bombed when it comes to the playoffs. Dreadfully even. People will point their blame sticks at Andy Dalton, but the running game is dead and the defense suddenly crumbles. Quarterbacks don't win games on their own and Cincinnati's team concept shows on the losing end of self-respectability in the postseason. So for the fourth-straight year, this is a...

Devon Still: 'Can't Give Football 100 Percent Right Now'

"I can’t give football 100 percent right now," Still said via Bengals.com. "In the business aspect they want guys solely focused on football. And that’s understandable." Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still isn't practicing on Monday, according to reports. Alright. Generally speaking practice squad players won't receive much attention on injury reports throughout the season. However it's unavoidable that Still and Trevor Robinson, both players on the team's 53-man roster in each of the past two years, will generate some attention. Before heading out to practice, Still spoke...
Bengals vs. Ravens Practice: Andre Smith working on the side

Bengals vs. Ravens Practice: Andre Smith working on the side

Monday's practice won't offer many clues for Smith. If he's in his helmet and working on the side, it's better than not working at all. If he practices on Wednesday, there's a good chance he plays Sunday. During a typical Monday following a game on Sunday, players would watch film and receive some treatment. These schedules are slightly modified during bye weeks and prior to the first regular game on the team's scheduled; otherwise you won't receive much more than a presser, updates to major injuries and a brief lull for transition (moving on to the next game). That being said, the Bengals...

Two Former Bengals Signed To Titans Practice Squad

A couple of final cuts by the Bengals have made homes elsewhere on Labor Day. When a team has collected a solid roster, it creates a situation where talented players are let go on the free market. Such is the case with the Cincinnati Bengals. Over the past few years, the organization has decided to join the ranks of the better-run teams in the NFL in a number of different ways. One obvious distinction is the fact that the scraps they brush off the table are quickly gathered by other teams. There were a couple of surprises that appeared on the final cuts list and two of them have found jobs...

With Bengals thin at DE, should they sign Michael Sam to practice squad?

With Bengals thin at DE, should they sign Michael Sam to practice squad?

If we're looking at Sam the player and what he did this preseason, it shouldn't be a debate, which is the only thing I'm considering. The Bengals have one practice squad spot open. Michael Sam is still waiting to be signed by anyone, even if it's just on someone's practice squad. The question has to be asked: Should the Bengals sign him? If we're looking at Sam the player, and what he did this preseason, it shouldn't be a debate, which is the only thing I'm considering. Not the media attention. Not what Sam does off the field, provided it's nothing illegal. Nothing more than what can Sam...

Cowboys sign Nikita Whitlock to practice squad and waive Ahmad Dixon

Cowboys sign Nikita Whitlock to practice squad and waive Ahmad Dixon

In terms of just blocking, Nikita Whitlock was the best fullback on the roster during training camp and through the preseason. The Bengals chose not to keep a true fullback on the roster this year, and that meant there was no place for Nikita Whitlock. The former Wake Forest defensive tackle was converted to fullback this offseason during the pre-draft process, and he made the transition very nicely. In terms of just blocking, he was the best fullback on the roster during training camp and through the preseason, but his inability to do anything else led to him being waived. The Bengals...

A.J. McCarron: Shoulder feels 'great'

Before any extension is filed (honestly, that's the first I've heard of that), the Bengals will have a three-week window after week six to decide McCarron's rookie season. They can place him on the active 53-man roster, waive him or leave him on the season-ending PUP list. Because rookie quarterback A.J. McCarron never officially practiced during training camp or the preseason, the Cincinnati Bengals allowed to place him on the team's Non-Football Injury list -- similar to PUP in that McCarron won't join the 53-man roster until week seven at the earliest, or not at all this year. It keeps...
