Bengals LB Preston Brown could be in for a situation similar to Alshon Jeffery’s in 2017

Preston Brown joined the Bengals on a one-year deal, but he could be following a similar path as Alshon Jeffery did last offseason. The Bengals managed to lure Preston Brown back home to Cincinnati from the Bills in free agency. The only down side seems to be it is on a one-year deal. Interestingly, the Eagles signed wide receiver Alshon Jeffery to a one-year deal last offseason as he was hoping to prove himself and eventually get a longer contract when the one-year ran out. Last season the Eagles gave Jeffery, the top free agent wide receiver, a huge payday in order to get him to join...

Report: Falcons interested in linebacker Arthur Moats

The veteran has 16.5 sacks in 121 career games. Now that the first, frenzied wave of free agency is over, you’re seeing teams like the Patriots rouse from their slumber a bit to pursue free agents. The same may be true of the Falcons, soon enough. Atlanta worked out Pro Bowl-caliber special teamer Justin Bethel yesterday, per the team, and today we’re hearing they have interest in former Bills and Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats. The 30-year-old would be an affordable piece of depth on Dan Quinn’s defense, which has to this point not replaced several useful reserves. The Steelers...

2018 NFL Mock Draft: Nogle’s 1.0 projection

The first mad-rush of free agency is complete, so we have a little better idea of what are the draft needs for all 32 NFL franchises. Things will still be happening in free agency over the next few weeks, but it seemed like a good time to break out my first mock draft of the season. In this projection of the first round, I did not include any trades. I know there will be some, and I am fairly certain the Buffalo Bills will be involved in some way. That said, in my projection, they probably end up getting exactly what they want by not moving. As for the Miami Dolphins, staying put at the...

This offseason, most Bengals fans were resigned to the belief that the team wouldn’t be very active in free agency. But, while they haven’t necessarily landed the biggest names on the market, they have plugged some roster holes and improved at a couple of spots.

Michael Bidwill, Steve Keim and Steve Wilks vowed to be very aggressive in free agency and they have been good to their word. Cleary their priority was to address the needs at QB and on the offensive line. With regard to the openings at the QB position, they made a run at Kirk Cousins, made trade inquiries with the Eagles and Bills about Nick Foles and Tyrod Taylor---and when none of those scenarios bore fruit, they honed in on the combo package of Sam Bradford (6-4, 224, 9, Oklahoma)...

Examining the Bengals’ move for Cordy Glenn

Mike Brown and his brain trust swung a huge trade for a starting left tackle on Monday. The Cincinnati Bengals made a huge move on Monday (figuratively and literally) when they traded for former Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Cordy Glenn. A prevailing belief permeating through the club this offseason is that things would be status quo, in terms of their lack of acquiring big-time talent from outside organizations. But, before the true onset of free agency, the Bengals added Glenn and veteran defensive tackle Chris Baker to their roster over the course of five days. Maybe tigers can change...
