Bengals Dre Kirkpatrick continues growing and Leon Hall "not all the way back yet", but close

The hope, beyond this year, is that Kirkpatrick will be paired with Dennard Darqueze as the team's future cornerback combination, much like Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall were -- what feels like an age ago. Hall, arguably one of the league's top slot cornerbacks, would find his best role as he enters the second half of his career. Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick has yet to walk into training camp without having something to deal with. Recovering from a knee injury during his rookie season in 2012, he missed training camp (and most of his first year). Last year, he showed up at...

Bengals offensive line shuffles with starters on PUP

Bodine could be the biggest winner from Thursday, getting valued snaps on the first-team offense. Figure that he and Pollak will compete until the regular season starts in early September. Whitworth should be fine, reclaiming his spot at left tackle sooner rather than later. Barring significant setbacks, Boling will likely stay at left guard and the right side is untouched. Maybe it's a small window that glances into Cincinnati's season; the year that the Bengals can make the postseason for a fourth straight season. It's the type of thing that makes you go... "oooookay." Bengals offensive...

Acts worse than beating a woman unconscious, according to NFL

Ray Rice punched his fiancée Janay Palmer unconscious in a casino. Roger Goodell's failure to deliver more than a two-game suspension is a clear and shameful message that the NFL doesn't respect women.

Andre Johnson Reports to Houston Texans Training Camp

Andre Johnson Reports to Houston Texans Training Camp

Johnson skipped the Texans' offseason organized team activities and minicamp. He would have qualified for a $1 million bonus for participation in the OTAs. The Houston Texans didn't do much to upgrade their anemic offense this offseason, and disgruntled wide receiver Andre Johnson made it obvious he was less than pleased with Houston. Johnson has since made it known he wants the Texans to trade him, and a training camp holdout appeared inevitable. However, Johnson has come to his senses, and will report to camp on time: Andre Johnson reported to Texans this morning. — John McClain...

Personal Observations from Day 1 of Training Camp

Personal Observations from Day 1 of Training Camp

Recapping what went on during Bengals camp on Thursday. I'm sure I could have gathered more by note-taking, but I'm going to training camp primarily to just enjoy watching; all of this is from memory (looking at the Bengals roster list and thinking about what I saw from each player). Due to work obligations, I won't be able to go to training camp regularly. I'll be sure to go on the Oklahoma Drill day though, assuming it's on a weekend. Obviously, the biggest thing is the ridiculous anti-Dalton banners. One man near me was discussing about Dalton possibly receiving a Kaepernick-like deal...

Video of Justin Blackmon being arrested for marijuana possession

TMZ Sports obtained the arrest video of NFL star Justin Blackmon -- in which he warned the officer, "This is gonna be a big deal." This is also probably the final scene of Blackmon as an NFL receiver, as he now could be banned from the league for another drug-related offense. Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.

Cincinnati Bengals Training Camp: Day 1 Recap

Cincinnati Bengals Training Camp: Day 1 Recap

We get down to what exactly happened during Day 1 of Bengals training camp. Day 1 of the 2014 Bengals training camp is now in the books. For the first time in seven months, the entire roster was on the practice field at the same time in some capacity. While some players were on the sidelines with various injuries, it was nice to see everyone back together and ready to focus on the season at hand with no holdouts or serious injuries preventing them from being present. So, let's get down to what exactly happened today. First off on the injury front: Andrew Whitworth became the latest player...

Marshawn Lynch to Holdout During Seahawks Training Camp

Regarded as one of the best backs in football, Lynch is coming off a 2013 season that saw him rush 301 times for 1,257 yards and 12 scores. Now that NFL training camps are opening, we'll begin to see who is holding out in hopes for a new deal. It looked like Marshawn Lynch was going to report to the Seattle Seahawks' camp, despite being unhappy with his current deal. That's not the case apparently, as he'll reportedly be holding out of camp until he gets a new deal. He broke the news by calling his former fullback, Michael Robinson, who broke the news live on the NFL Network set. Wow:...

Bengals Wide Receiver A.J. Green Wasn't Himself Until Week Six Last Season

In speaking with local media, Cincinnati Bengals star wide receiver admitted that an early Training Camp injury put him behind last season. One of the first dramatic moments of last year's Hard Knocks stint was a knee injury to A.J. Green. He went up for a deep ball from Andy Dalton and landed awkwardly. Everyone present held their breath and prayed that it wasn't a serious issue for the star wideout. The Bengals had luck in their corner as Green just missed a few weeks of preseason with a knee strain and bruise. Green got through the first official practice without any issues and those in...

Bengals Claim Wide Receiver Conner Vernon Off Waivers

Bengals Claim Wide Receiver Conner Vernon Off Waivers

The Bengals made another move on Thursday by adding a young wide receiver off of the waiver wire. With the hubbub of Training Camp kicking off, additional roster moves can get lost in the excitement. The Bengals had their first official practice of the season on Thursday but the front office was still busy wheeling and dealing. After letting go of punter T.J. Conley, the team wanted to bring in a young wideout for camp competition. The Bengals claimed Conner Vernon off of waivers from the Cleveland Browns. Vernon was an undrafted player in 2013 who joined the Oakland Raiders for preseason...

Andrew Whitworth Placed on PUP; TJ Conley Waived

The Bengals injury list is getting bigger by the day. Already down four starters, the Bengals will now be without their best offensive lineman after placing Andrew Whitworth on the Active Physically Unable to Perform list. Whitworth, who's dealing with a calf injury, now joins Jermaine Gresham, Marvin Jones, Mike Pollak and Geno Atkins among others on PUP. Whitworth continues to count against the team’s roster limit and can be activated to practice as soon as he is cleared medically. A stalwart along the offensive line, Whitworth has played in at least 14 games in seven of his eight NFL...

Bengals Using Andy Dalton and Jason Campbell on Option Runs

Dalton is a good athlete who could certainly afford to run the ball more than the 61 attempts he got last year. The Bengals have made it clear they want to run the ball more in 2014. That might include the quarterbacks as well. Andy Dalton has always been decent when it comes to mobility and his ability to scramble for a nice gain. Jay Gruden would even cal an occasional option run for Dalton in 2013, though never enough to keep defenses honest. That could change in 2014 under new offensive coordinator Hue Jackson, that is, if the first day of camp is any indicator: I've actually seen a...

Jeremy Johnson now with Bengals; Was with Patriots Previously

The 6-foot, 180-pound Johnson led the SMU Mustangs with 112 receptions for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns as a senior in 2013. Sneaky Bengals. Apparently, they've added a player to the roster and had him practicing today without anyone knowing. At least, us in the media. They've apparently added former SMU wide receiver Jeremy Johnson to the roster. Seeing a new number out here at WR. It's possible #Bengals got their 90th roster addition earlier today ... — Coley Harvey (@ColeyHarvey) July 24, 2014 Bengals added rookie WR Jeremy Johnson (SMU) recently cut by New England. He’s...

Fantasy Football Outlook: The Enigmatic Situation With Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton

It's the time of year when football geeks everywhere build their fantasy football rosters. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is an intriguing player to watch. Like athletes, gamblers understand the words "competitive advantage". No matter the game and/or the stakes, anybody who has their money on the line looks to find little secrets to win the bet. With the popularity behemoth that has become fantasy football, even the most causal of NFL fans know the ins and outs of players around the league and their shortcomings.
