Cowboys receive a positive grade for their free agency efforts to date

As much flak as they take, some see the wisdom in the Cowboys free agent strategy. Grades for free agency? Already? Sure, why not. Bleacher Report took a stab at handing out grades for the efforts of each team so far in free agency. They were pretty harsh graders. Not even the signing of Earl Thomas could save the Baltimore Ravens from getting a D grade. The Cincinnati Bengals got an F! So how did the Dallas Cowboys fare? Pretty well. The Cowboys received an overall grade of B+ that could turn into an A with one move. The context around each grade was broken down into four categories. What...

Bengals like what new guard John Miller brings to the offense

The Bengals signed a projected starter for the offensive line last week and many aspects about his skill set and work ethic drew the staff to his services. The Cincinnati Bengals’ approach to 2019 free agency has been very similar to that of previous years. It’s largely been about keeping their own valued talents they have developed, while keeping an eye on other extensions they would like to get done. However, they have dipped their toes in unfamiliar waters this offseason. One of their acquisitions is an interesting guard in John Miller, whose new deal has the look of a guy penciled...

The Bengals have offered another one-year deal to their former first round draft pick. On Saturday, the Bengals wrapped up the first week of free agency by re-signing TE Tyler Eifert to a one-year deal. Eifert, who has struggled with injuries ever since being drafted with the 21st overall pick of the 2013 draft, is getting one more chance to prove he can stay healthy and be a big part of the Bengals’ offense.

NFL Mock Draft Roundup: Bengals have opened up a world of possibilities

The Bengals haven’t had much variety in the players that have been mocked to them this offseason, but that has apparently changed after the first wave of free agency. The first wave of free agency has gone by, and while the Bengals haven’t drastically changed in their March approach, the needs of the teams in front of them in the NFL draft have been altered. The actions of many teams through the first week of the new NFL year has had a pretty drastic impact on the most recent mock drafts.
