Trae Waynes is hyped to still be Mackensie Alexander’s teammate

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ The Bengals are keeping the working and personal relationships between Waynes and Alexander alive and well. It’s a rare thing for two free agents of the same position on the same team to each join the same new team. But that’s exactly the case for Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander. Waynes was the second free agent signing the Cincinnati Bengals made last week; a move that was announced after Darqueze Dennard reportedly agreed to join the Jacksonville Jaguars. A boundary corner by trade, Waynes isn’t suited to replace Dennard, but Alexander is, and...

NFL Draft Film Room: The best throws of Joe Burrow’s historic 2019 season

Photo by Alika Jenner/ Burrow made some ridiculous plays on his journey to a National Championship last season. Joe Burrow is filthy. Plan and simple. Burrow is a ridiculous talent.

In the grand scheme of things as long as a certain threshold is surpassed, arm strength is not as important as people tend to think it is. A highly accurate passer with pocket presence and a keen...

Jaguars and Darqueze Dennard fail to finalize contract

A lot of free agent acquisitions are still unofficial because teams cannot perform medicals on some of the players they’ve agreed to terms with. One thing’s for certain: it’s not a done deal until pen meets paper. This is exactly the case when it comes to former Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The two sides reportedly agreed upon a $13.5 million contract that would...
