Bengals' Jeff Driskel: Not expected to miss offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driskel underwent surgery to repair the broken left arm he suffered in late December and isn't expected to miss time when the Bengals begin their offseason workout program in April, Jim Owczarski of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Driskel, the Bengals' No. 3 quarterback last season, suffered the injury to his non-throwing arm while taking reps at wide receiver in a practice and landing awkwardly on an attempted catch. Though Driskel's surgery required the insertion of a rod into his arm for stabilization, it doesn't sound like he'll face any restrictions by the time Organized Team Activities get underway. With an arbitration ruling granting AJ McCarron free agency status this spring and the signal caller not expected to re-sign with Cincinnati, Driskel could enter training camp as the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart, barring the Bengals adding other experienced or NFL-ready options via trade, free agency or the draft.

Bengals' AJ McCarron: Wins appeal, granted free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarron won the grievance he filed against the Bengals last spring and will become an unrestricted free agent March 14, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Bengals contended that McCarron, a 2014 fifth-round pick, should be a restricted free agent this offseason after failing to accrue enough time on the team's active roster during his rookie campaign to qualify for unrestricted free agency. McCarron had spent most of that season on the Bengals' Non-Football Injury list due to a shoulder issue that impacted his throwing during Organized Team Activities, but the quarterback believed he could have come off the NFI list during training camp and that his activation was wrongfully delayed. After McCarron received the favorable ruling in arbitration, the Bengals won't be able to tender him the standard one-year contract for restricted free agents heading into their fourth season, thereby allowing the 27-year-old pursue a more sizable deal on the open market, and potentially, the opportunity to compete for a starting role. McCarron shouldn't have trouble securing a multi-year contract after the Browns made a major push to acquire him last fall, reportedly agreeing to send second- and third-round picks to the Bengals before the deal was nixed due to Cleveland's failure to submit paperwork for the trade in a timely fashion.

Bengals' Bobby Hart: Signs with Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals signed Hart (ankle) to a contract Wednesday.

With 33 career appearances -- including 21 starts -- through his first four seasons in the league, Hart possesses more NFL experience than most players typically available on the open market at this time of the year. The 23-year-old clashed with the Giants' former coaching staff toward the end of the 2017 campaign, as he was deactivated for the season finale and placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Hart wasn't retained once the new regime took over after the season, but a move to another organization could help revitalize his career. The Bengals may end up staging an open competition for both of the starting tackle roles during training camp with both Eric Winston and Andre Smith (knee) bound for free agency in March and Jake Fisher's (chest) long-term health a question mark.

Bengals' Jeff Driskel: Recovering from broken arm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driskel is recovering from a broken left arm he sustained in the Bengals' last week of practice, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

There is no timetable for Driskel's recovery and it's far from certain he'll be ready in time for OTAs.
