  • Bengals' Jonah Williams: Picked up by Cincy

    The Bengals selected Williams in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 11th overall.

    A three-year starter at Alabama with experience at both tackle spots, Williams brings a significant infusion of talent the Bengals' line. There is some question as to his future as an NFL left tackle due to his average athleticism and length, but Williams' technique and play style are top notch. He can start right away, although Bobby Hart and Cordy Glenn profile as the starting tackles as it stands. With that, Williams could begin his career at guard before ultimately moving back out to his natural position of tackle.

  • Bengals' William Jackson III: Under contract through 2020

    The Bengals exercised the fifth-year option on Jackson's contract Wednesday.

    Jackson started all 16 games for the Bengals during his third NFL season in 2018, notching 41 tackles, 13 pass breakups and no interceptions. Though he's only produced one turnover thus far in his career, Jackson has received positive marks for his work in coverage and should be locked into a starting role in the Cincinnati secondary through 2020.

  • Bengals' Carl Lawson: No clear timetable for return

    Lawson (knee) doesn't have a clear timeline to return to the field, Fletcher Page of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "The goal overall is just be ready for the first game," Lawson said. "That's my goal to be set for. Be back by training camp or be back by this date -- I'm not going to sit there and rush it. I'm not. I'm ahead of schedule, but then again I could be down schedule. Until I feel right I'm not coming back. The goal is definitely the first game."

    Lawson will be over 10 months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL when the regular season opens in September. While it's not unrealistic to think he could return to team drills sometime during training camp, there also seems to be a decent chance Lawson opens camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

  • 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.

    Redmond re-signed Wednesday with Cincinnati on a one-year contract.

    Redmond was an exclusive-rights free agent who wasn't going anywhere after starting 15 games at right guard last season.

  • 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.
