  • Bengals' Alex Cappa: Dealing with injury during OTAs

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Tuesday that Cappa is dealing with a core muscle injury and didn't participate during Tuesday's OTA, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Taylor said the issue may keep Cappa out for a few weeks, so it's possible he doesn't practice again until training camp in July. The 27-year-old signed a four-year, $40 million deal with the Bengals this offseason and is expected to be the team's starting right guard after being a four-year starter with Tampa Bay.

  • Bengals' Alex Cappa: Finds new home in Cincinnati

    Cappa agreed to terms on a four-year, $40 million contract with the Bengals on Monday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Cappa fills one of the most notable weaknesses on Cincinnati's offensive line, slotting in at right guard, after having proven himself as a four-year starter with Tampa Bay. The 27-year-old standout's presence along the interior will bolster both Joe Burrow's protection and the Bengals' rushing attack.

  • Buccaneers' Alex Cappa: Trending up as camp approaches

    Cappa reclaimed his starting right guard spot during June minicamp and should be able to practice without restrictions in training camp following his recovery from a fractured ankle suffered last postseason, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Cappa will be entering both his third year as a starter and a contract year, the latter which should particularly afford him a heavy dose of motivation. The 2018 third-round pick was an integral part of a unit that played a key role in both the passing and running success of the Buccaneers' offense last season, with Tampa Bay ranking in the top half of the league in both running back yards per carry (4.6) and adjusted sack rate (4.3 percent), per Football Outsiders.
