Bengals RB Jeremy Hill blames overconfidence for fumbles
by Marty Gitlin |

Bengals emerging back Jeremy Hill has blamed overconfidence for the spate of fumbles that marred his 2014 season.

Hill fumbled just once in two seasons at LSU, then five times as a rookie for Cincinnati, which drafted him in the second round in part because of his ability to hang on to the ball.

"I had so much confidence last year in my ability to carry the football, I kind of got lackadaisical about it and just kind of said, 'Well, no one can take the ball from me,' and just kind of wasn't respecting the guys on the other team," Hill told ESPN. "That's the worst mistake you can make, especially in this league."

His propensity to fumble did not prevent him from taking over as the featured back by midseason and finishing with 1,124 yards and a 5.1 yards-per-carry average.

Andrew Whitworth declares himself a Bengal for life
by Shawn Krest |

Five days after Bengals offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth expressed frustration over the team's lack of communication with him, he declared himself a Bengal for life. 

Whitworth criticized the team's "poor customer service" for using two draft picks on offensive linemen without communicating their plan with him. 

On Saturday, Whitworth said he'd spoken to the team since his outburst and settled some issues.

"Monday was just an emotional day for me. It's a tough day. Just the process," Whitworth said, per "You're getting older and eventually teams are going to have to make moves that prepare for that. And so for me, it's just being able to swallow that. The competitor I am, it's hard. The bottom line is, I love this place. I won't play anywhere else. I'll never put on another uniform other than a Cincinnati Bengal uniform and that's all that's important to me."
