Andy Dalton confident he'll get a new deal
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is entering a contract year in 2014, but he's not sweating it. Dalton told NFL Network that he's "confident" a new deal will get done

"[B]oth sides are working on it," Dalton said. "We haven't given a deadline, we haven't talked about a deadline. We don't expect it to get to that point, but if it does, it does."

Last week Bengals owner Mike Brown called Dalton the "quarterback here for the immediate future," adding that he'd use the franchise tag if need be to keep Dalton.

New Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson continues to describe running back Giovani Bernard in glowing terms. "He’s had an outstanding camp," Jackson told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. "He’s so explosive, he can catch the ball, he’s a tough son of a gun. He protects. He blocks."

Mohamed Sanu 'generating a strong buzz'
by Larry Hartstein |

Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu seemed to fall out of favor last year as Marvin Jones emerged with 10 touchdown catches. But Sanu "is generating a strong buzz" in camp, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

"With Andrew Hawkins gone to Cleveland in free agency, I bet he gets a lot of looks," La Canfora wrote of Sanu. "[Quarterback Andy] Dalton seems to like throwing to him."

Sanu caught 47 passes for 455 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Bengals to 'expand portfolio' of Giovani Bernard
by Larry Hartstein |

The Bengals want to find different ways to get the ball to running back Giovani Bernard, reports

"I don't know if it's the workload that's going to get more, it's more the type of plays that we're going to run with him in the game," running backs coach Kyle Caskey told the website. "We're going to expand his portfolio of plays and find different ways to get the ball in his hands in space. You get the ball in Gio's hands in space, he's dangerous."

Cincy could line up Bernard as an outside or slot receiver -- anything to get him in space.

"You don't necessarily have to hand it off and say, 'Hey, Gio got 260 touches last year out of the backfield.' Maybe he gets 260 to 300 touches but he gets them some other way," Caskey said. "Maybe he gets 200 out of the backfield but he catches 100 passes or however it is. We'll find a way to get the ball to him."
