Bengals' AJ McCarron: Still unlikely to be traded
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals aren't willing to trade McCarron for anything less than a first-round pick, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Head coach Marvin Lewis said last month a trade is unlikely, as the Bengals seemingly value McCarron more than any other team does. The 26-year-old quarterback did a nice job filling in for an injured Andy Dalton late in the 2015 season, but he wasn't so impressive as to justify parting ways with a first-round pick. McCarron's value does get a boost from the possibility his 2014 campaign won't count as an accrued season, which would allow the team to keep him on his rookie contract through 2018. The 2014 fifth-round selection was on the Non-Football Injury list until Week 14 as a rookie while he recovered from a lingering shoulder issue he suffered before joining the team. McCarron doesn't expect to get a decision on the contract issue until next year, and he said he's at peace with his current situation in Cincinnati, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. While he'd probably prefer to be traded to a team which would give him a shot at the starting job, he still reported for the start of the Bengals' offseason program.

Bengals' Tyler Eifert: Isn't sure if he'll be ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eifert (back) said his back feels great, yet he isn't sure if he will be ready for the start of training camp, ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell reports.

Eifert seemed to hint last week that he expected to be ready for camp, but he may have been referring to Week 1 when he said he'd be "ready to go by the time it's go time". Still recovering from December back surgery, the 26-year-old tight end only resumed running a few weeks ago and still isn't quite moving at full speed. He also needs to build up his strength, as he's spent much of the past 11 months rehabbing -- first for his ankle and now his back. Despite playing at less than full strength for most of last season, Eifert was a major pass-catching threat when available, hauling in 29 passes for 394 yards and five touchdowns in only five games. Even with the durability concerns, he'll be a clear top-10 option at tight end if he's ready to go by Week 1.

Bengals' Jeremy Hill: Ready to possibly compete with rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill said he isn't worried about the possibility of Cincinnati using an early draft pick on a running back, NFL.com's reports. "If they wanna draft the back high, go ahead and do it," said Hill. "They're probably going to be my backup."

With Giovani Bernard (knee) rehabbing from a torn ACL and Hill coming off back-to-back seasons with under 4.0 yards per carry, the Bengals figure to draft a running back for the first time since using a second-rounder on Hill in 2014. Depending on how early the position is addressed, Hill could even enter training camp as an underdog to retain his role as Cincinnati's lead ball-carrier. The team also figures to address a line that lost left tackle Andrew Whitworth and left guard Kevin Zeitler -- players that Hill referred to as the team's two best offensive linemen. Despite scoring 30 touchdowns in 47 career games, the 24-year-old running back will enter his contract season with a ton to prove. If he doesn't get his YPC mark back above 4.0, he may be pigeon-holed as a goal-line/short-yardage specialist when he hits the open market next offseason.
