As the process chugs ever so inexorably to the May 8-10 NFL Draft, the Bengals host their invite-only local day at Paul Brown Stadium Wednesday morning with the most intriguing prospect Cincinnati Northwest High School’s Preston Brown out of Louisville, a projected mid-rounder at linebacker.
Usually Kevin Huber is back punting in late March. His only concession to last year’s horrific season-ending broken jaw in Pittsburgh is that he has yet to have a full kicking session. He’ll be surprised if he won’t be having those next month when the Bengals take their voluntary workouts to the field.
When the Bengals show up for their first offseason workout session on Monday morning, they’ll be greeted by T-shirts in their lockers emblazoned with the words, “Challenge The Moment.”
