Bengals 7th round pick Auden Tate “making a real run” at 53-man roster

Auden Tate turned plenty of heads during the Bengals’ minicamp. It could be enough to put him in the conversation for the 53-man roster. The Bengals ended their 2018 draft haul by bringing in Florida State wide receiver Auden Tate. He slipped due to his awful 40-yard dash time of 4.68 seconds as well as a shoulder injury that he played through in college. Plus, his college stats just weren’t that impressive. I promise every team that picked past me because my “Shoulder Issue” gotta feel me in the future‼️ Believe That☝ — Auden Tate (@lil_t8te) April 28, 2018 What makes...

Bengals Bytes (6/14): Defense is already creating turnovers

It may just be practices without pads in shorts, but it is still nice to see the Bengals defense already trying to create more turnovers. Quick hits: Eifert question mark for camp; three-pick day; Joe all goTight end Tyler Eifert stretched with the team before Wednesday’s mandatory minicamp practice but just watched the rest of the way. That may or may not be what we see when training camps starts in 43 days as he continues to recover from back surgery. Lewis said he doesn’t know if Eifert is going to be ready for July 26.

Recapping the final day of Bengals minicamp and injury updates

The Bengals are officially on summer break following the final day of mandatory minicamp in Cincinnati. The Bengals are done with OTAs and mandatory minicamp and things are about to get quiet in Cincinnati for the next month and a half. Training camp begins on July 26 and until then players will not be required to be at the stadium nor in Cincinnati. Thursday was the final day of minicamp and it seems there were some good developments — specifically for John Ross — as well as some big-time former players in attendance. Anthony Munoz, Tim Krumie and Max Montoya were at practice, which...

Billy Price says he will be medically cleared next week; already lifting 305 pounds

Billy Price is already working out like a healthy NFL player. All he is waiting for now is the medical OK to play football. The Bengals’ first round pick, center Billy Price, is getting closer to seeing full action on the football field. Following a pectoral injury suffered in February at the NFL Scouting Combine, Price is already taking his workout to the next stages, and it doesn’t seem like real on-the-field work will be much farther behind. ”I’m going to be cleared next week when I go for my all check,” Price told Jay Morrison of Dayton Daily News. “I just did 305 this...

Bengals offensive line continues to mix it up; Cordy Glenn likes what he has seen

Cordy Glenn likes what he has seen so far from the Bengals offense, and while he is limited in practice, the Bengals have been playing musical chairs along the offensive line. The story so far for veterans during the Bengals OTAs has been coming along slowly. High-profile guys like A.J. Green haven’t been run ragged, and injured or often injured guys like Tyler Eifert, Shawn Williams and the newest Bengals left tackle Cordy Glenn have all been given time to recover from injuries. It makes sense given how fast the season is approaching, and that an injury during practices with shorts...

Bengals TE C.J. Uzomah seizing his opportunity heading into contract season

C.J. Uzomah has had a bit of a roller coaster of a career with the Bengals so far, but he knows how important this season is to make a good impression. Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah is entering his fourth NFL season, and it’s also his contract year. This is his last season to make an impression on the Bengals or impress another team, and he is coming off a surprisingly bad season. In 2016, Uzomah recorded 25 catches for 234 yards and a touchdown in six games before getting injured. A lot of that came when fellow tight end Tyler Eifert was recovering from an injury, so it was surprising...

Tyler Eifert has a mysterious medical issue that kept him from Bengals’ first minicamp session

Tyler Eifert was unable to take part in the Bengals’ first minicamp practice on Tuesday. The Bengals began the final phase of OTAs on Tuesday with their first minicamp practice.

Film room: There’s no matchup where Tyler Eifert can’t win

Health and injury are dastardly foes, but they are the only ones who should concern the 6th-year tight end. 23-14-1, 24.21 23-18-1, 21.64 Those are the Bengals win-loss records and points per game when tight end Tyler Eifert did or did not record a reception, respectively. Eifert has played in 39 of the Bengals 80 regular season contests since he was drafted and has caught at least one pass in 38 of them. While the number of wins are the same, the four added losses and 2.57 less points per game don’t look like big differentials over a five year span. Combine those two records and you...

Assessing the value the Bengals got in Ole Miss OL Rod Taylor

That could be where Rod Taylor comes into play. Taylor has bounced around the...

When Ryan Shazier was injured against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football on December 4th, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and their fan base, didn’t know what to think.

Assessing the value Bengals got in Toledo QB Logan Woodside

Some experts liked Logan Woodside as an early Day 3 prospect. The Bengals entered the NFL Draft needing a new quarterback to compete for the backup spot behind Andy Dalton. They wanted more competition for that spot following the departure of AJ McCarron. While they did sign Matt Barkley in free agency, he’s a shaky backup at best with no real upside as a starting quarterback. Jeff Driskel is still an unknown, and an injury-prone unknown at that. That made it an easy call to target a quarterback sometime on Day 3 of the draft. While it didn’t come until Round 7, the Bengals finally...

4 surprise cuts that may come to the Bengals’ roster

These players may seem to have their roster spots secured, but don’t be surprised if they get cut before Week 1. The Bengals’ roster is currently maxed out at the 90-man offseason limit. Between now and the start of the 2018 regular season, 37 of those players will be off the roster in one way or another. Some of them will suffer injuries that land them on injured reserve, but most of them will be cut outright before the Bengals face the Colts to open the 2018 season. While it’s easy to project 20-30 of those cuts, there could be some surprise players that hard handed pink slips...

John Ross describes his relationship with Marvin Lewis, mysterious shoulder injury

Ross opens up about the shoulder injury that ended his season, as well as his relationship with Marvin Lewis. The Bengals are hoping Year 2 is when John Ross shows the NFL what he’s made of. After being drafted No. 9 overall Bengals in 2017, it looked inevitable that Ross would be a major player in Cincinnati. However, injuries and a lack of playing time helped prevent him from ever making an impact. Part of that was due to offseason shoulder surgery that caused Ross to miss training camp and be limited in the preseason. He was recovering from shoulder surgery when he joined the team,...
