Geno Atkins
News
Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins only had three sacks a year ago. Having had to spend much of last offseason rehabbing a torn ACL, Atkins wasn't able to look like his old self during the 2014 regular season. 

However, Atkins has looked much improved in OTAs, at least according to Bengals defensive line coach Jay Hayes.

“Scary,” Hayes said, via the Bengals' official team site. “It’s scary how fast and explosive he is right now. I think he has the confidence that he has his legs under him. He feels like he did.”

In 2012, Atkins recorded a career-best 12 1/2 sacks. Defensive coordinator Paul Guenther believes Atkins could be on his way back to that level. 

"He looks as good as any guy we’ve got on our team. On the defensive side at least,” Guenther said. “He’s real explosive. He looks strong. He looks as good as he’s ever had. I’m proud of the way he’s come back. He gives us a huge boost. Huge. You’re talking about one of the elite players in the league.”

A.J. Green
News
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green's chances of signing a contract extension before the start of training camp remains slim, according to ESPN. Still, it doesn't seem to bother the fifth-year receiver, who is set to make $10.1 million in the final year of his rookie contract.

"I don't get into all the 'I need a contract' stuff," he said. "I'm not here for money. I'm not broke. So I'm fine. I can wait until the end of the year to get a contract, but I know that time is coming."

If Green doesn't receive a long-term contract at some point, then the Bengals could use the franchise tag on him in March. 

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas have yet to sign long-term deals after having their respective clubs use the franchise tag on them. Green is monitoring their situations, but he believes it won't affect him.

"It doesn't say anything about me," Green said. "They're three different teams. Three different people. You don't know what their situation is. All I can do is control what I can do, and that's play football. Everything after that takes care of itself."

Clint Boling
News
The Bengals have re-signed guard Clint Boling to a five-year, $26 million deal, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Wednesday. He's due to make approximately $5 million per season. Boling started all 16 games for Cincinnati in 2014 and has started 47 of a possible 64 games in his four seasons with the team.
Pat Sims
News
The Bengals signed veteran defensive tackle Pat Sims, the team announced on Thursday. 

Sims returns to the Bengals after spending the past two years in Oakland. Sims was a third-round pick in the 2008 draft by Cincinnati and spent his first years with the Bengals. 

Sims recorded 25 tackles and one pass deflections in 2014. He started two of the 16 games he appeared in. He started all 16 games for the Raiders in 2013, posting 54 tackles and two sacks. 

A.J. Hawk
News
The Bengals have agreed to a two-year deal with linebacker A.J. Hawk, per his agent.

Hawk was released by the Packers in February with a failed physical designation. The team was interested in bringing him back, and the Vikings were also reported to have interest.

Of the $4 million, $250,000 of it can be earned through incentives each year. In 2014, Nugent connected on 26 of his 33 field-goal attempts.

The team officially announced the signing on Monday. 

“I’m excited to have Mike back with us,” said special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons. “Mike dealt with some tough issues last season (including the death of his father), but he finished the year strong, and we’re looking for him to pick up where he left off. Also this means we’ll have our specialist trio back, with (snapper) Clark Harris and (holder) Kevin Huber, and keeping the continuity with those guys working as a unit is a big asset for us.”

Jones was able to participate in the team's minicamp in June without any issues.

"That's what this [camp] was for," he said. "Just getting out there and playing football against other people and not thinking about it. It's been a great opportunity for me to go out there and get the feel back. I got it back and it's just been great."

News
Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was certainly not a full-go Tuesday in his first action since going on injured reserve last December and undergoing microfracture surgery the following month.

He did, however work out on a side field, which is encouraging in itself. But he should not be expected to join his teammates any time soon.

"Vontaze will be in rehab all the way through the summer," Marvin Lewis told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "So, he's got a long way to go. He had surgery in January. That's surgery that takes a bit."

Burfict could not run. Rather, he limped moving across the practice field.

The Bengals were without their top two receiving threats, A.J.

Bernard also added six rushing yards on three carries in the loss.

Burkhead drew the first two touches of the game, racking up 23 yards on an end-around on his only carry of the day and adding 34 yards on three receptions over the course of the game. He managed just 76 yards on 16 touches during the regular season.

The Bengals will be without top wideout A.J. Green (concussion) and starting tight end Jermaine Gresham (back) for Sunday's playoff game at Indianapolis. They combined for 1,501 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns this season.

With those key targets out, quarterback Andy Dalton figures to rely on running backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard and wideout Mohamed Sanu.

Also inactive for Cincy are quarterback AJ McCarron, defensive back Chris Lewis-Harris, offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson, defensive lineman Devon Still and wideout James Wright (knee).

Cincy is a 3.5-point underdog as Dalton looks for his first playoff win in four tries.

Jeremy Hill
News
There has been a lot of buzz generated this offseason surrounding Bengals second-year running back Jeremy Hill. While some coaches might want to downplay or shy away from the hype, Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson wants Hill to embrace it.

"We can't run from it because they're going to say it," Jackson said, per ESPN.com. "Now you've got to go live up to it. There should be no pressure in that. All it is is to go out and work. To me, if a guy wants to be great, he's got to relish that. He's got to want that and then go exceed it.

"That would be my challenge to [Hill]. I expect him to exceed whatever the expectation is about him."

Jackson has high hopes for Hill and fellow running back Giovani Bernard.

"The sky's the limit for him and Gio," Jackson said. "But they've got to go out and do it. They've got to do it on a consistent basis, week in and week out. It can't be about the plays that are called, the defenses that they're facing. You've got to make plays."

Andrew Whitworth
News
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 Bengals.com. "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."

The Bengals have weapons at the running back position. With Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard, the team has a pair of more than capable rushers at its disposal.

It seems as if the Bengals are going to use both of them as much as possible, per ESPN.com.

"Obviously there's going to be a balanced attack," Hill said. "I don't think he's got to wear either one of us out, so that way we can make it through all 16 games for a playoff push."

Hill rushed for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns last season as a rookie, while injuries limited Bernard to 680 yards and five touchdowns. The duo plans on coming back even stronger next season.

The kid is doing awesome," defensive end Wallace Gilberry said, per NFL.com. "When I say awesome, that's kind of an understatement. I mean, last year, he kind of struggled with the arm situation. But this year, man ... his throwing motion is on point. His passes are on point. I think he's thrown one interception the whole camp. Not to say Andy (Dalton) has thrown any, but the kid is competing."
