  • Bengals' John Ross: Getting a chance with new coaches

    Coach Zac Taylor said he'll see what Ross can put on tape, noting that the 24-year-old wide receiver was "electric" in college, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Ross has the opportunity to prove himself under a new coaching staff, but the fresh start won't mean much if he struggles during the offseason program and training camp. While competition for the No. 3 wide receiver spot isn't exactly fierce based on the current construction of the Cincinnati roster, there's still plenty of time for the team to add bodies before Week 1. Bengals executive Duke Tobin shot down trade rumors about moving Ross back in February, saying the team hadn't engaged in any internal or external discussions regarding a trade. The No. 9 overall pick from the 2017 draft played just three games as a rookie, then posted a baffling 21-210-7 receiving line (58 targets, 3.6 YPT) in 13 games last season. Ross needs to find success on deep passes to stay relevant, as his conversion rate on targets inside the 10-yard line (five of six went for scores) was really the only thing that went right for him last season.

  • Bengals' Andy Dalton: Should be fine for practices

    Dalton (thumb) should be ready when practices start in six weeks, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports.

    Dalton had surgery to repair a torn right thumb ligament in late November and resumed throwing footballs at the beginning of February. His rehab process shouldn't have any impact on the process of installing a new offense under first-time head coach Zac Taylor, as the Bengals won't hold real practices until late May. The early stages of the offseason program will focus on learning a new playbook, in addition to the usual strength and conditioning work. Dalton has two seasons remaining on a team-friendly contract, but it won't come as any surprise if the Bengals try to find his successor during the 2019 NFL Draft. The 31-year-old quarterback was on pace for a 10-win, 34-touchdown season after Week 8 last year, but the Bengals fell apart once A.J. Green (toe) and then Dalton were injured.

  • Bengals' A.J. Green: Participating in voluntary workouts

    Green (toe) participated in the start of voluntary workouts Tuesday, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    While Green said he's ready to play, Hobson notes that the receiver likely will be eased back into action just four months removed from a surgical procedure that came with a recovery timeline of 3-to-4 months. Regardless, Green's active participation in voluntary workouts to any extent bodes well for his ability to garner extensive reps during an offseason in which the entire Bengals offense will be learning a new system under incoming coach Zac Taylor.

  • Bengals' Tony McRae: Inks deal with Cincy

    McRae (hamstring) signed his tender with the Bengals on Tuesday.

    McRae primarily played a special teams role for the Bengals last season but missed four of the final five games with the hamstring injury. The 25-year-old likely enters the 2019 season slated for a similar role.

  • Bengals' Mark Walton: Facing charges

    Walton surrendered Thursday to face felony charges of carrying a concealed weapon, marijuana possession and reckless driving stemming from a March 12 incident near Miami, Fl., David Ovalle of the Miami Herald reports.

    Walton is, reportedly, already facing two other criminal cases in the form of a misdemeanor battery charge from February and a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge from January. The former Hurricanes running back is coming off a disappointing rookie campaign in which he averaged just 2.4 yards over 14 rushing attempts, and these legal issues are doing Walton no favors in advance of his second season.
