Now a timeout from all the hate and the madness. Time for a few snaps of charity and a couple of downs of hope from Bengals right end Michael Johnson as he continues his rush to make a difference. So step right into the Michael D. Johnson Technology Center in his hometown of Selma, Ala.
From 1 to slightly more than 1,000 in a numbers game gone wild as we offer Bengaldom a rash of digits to peruse for the upcoming season. Andy Dalton eyes Johnny Unitas, A.J. Green chases down Isaac Curtis, Leon Hall tries to jump over Leapin’ Lemar Parrish, and Andrew Whitworth and Domata Peko (above) close in on the ironmen.
The Bengals signed former Ravens QB Keith Wenning Wednesday in an effort to find a young, developmental quarterback...William and Mary is an unlikely NFL pipeline, but the Bengals have two of the school's 10 NFL coaches and scouts on staff...
Single-game tickets for the Bengals’ home games in 2015 (including preseason) will be available beginning Sat., June 27.
Last year while fellow 2014 first round draft picks Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Evans, and C.J. Mosley were playing starring roles as rookies, Darqueze Dennard mostly watched and waited.
After helping coach his old team during six practices in the last two weeks as an intern, T.J. Houshmandzadeh says this offense can surpass the numbers of his 2005 group that pulled off a brazen assault on the club record book.
Thursday’s release of quarterback Terrelle Pryor a few hours after the Bengals ended their spring workouts seems to reflect their comfort level with AJ McCarron as Andy Dalton’s backup.
Not a good day for the offense and the quarterbacks and a good day for the defense Wednesday in the second day of mandatory minicamp. But don’t tell that to Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.
There aren’t many days in Devon Still’s life that could have been any better than Tuesday. He returned to the team for the first time this offseason with news that his daughter’s treatment for complications in her liver from chemotherapy is working and 5-year-old Leah’s seven-week hospital stay in Philadelphia could be over in a matter of days.
A grateful Devon Still returned Tuesday when the Bengals opened their mandatory minicamp. But not because it was mandatory. He returned to work because 5-year-old daughter Leah has made a significant turn for the better in the battle for her health.
As the Bengals head into their three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday, the best news is their best players are looking the way they should after nine voluntary workouts over the last three weeks. Wide receiver A.J. Green and defensive tackle Geno Atkins, with seven Pro Bowls between them, have looked sharp during the media sessions and have reportedly carried it off in other practices as well. Same with quarterback Andy Dalton.
When the Bengals finish off their spring session in next week’s June 16-18 mandatory minicamp, they’ll have all nine draft picks in the fold after Cedric Ogbuehi inked on Thursday.
Mike Zimmer loved how Darqueze Dennard compared to Leon Hall. Now The Kid and The Veteran are having nice springs as Dennard tries to learn his craft from a fellow competitor with always something to prove.
Bengals defensive line coach Jay Hayes is vying for an eight-man rotation. It already looks like he has seven with the five starters (consider all-everything end-tackle Wallace Gilberry a No. 1) backed up by tackle Brandon Thompson and right end Will Clarke.
The return to form of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Geno Atkins and the emergence of backup right end Will Clarke has defensive coordinator Paul Guenther enthused. It mirrors his optimism in new-found depth that was missing last year.
Left tackle Andrew Whitworth is one of the four Bengals left from wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh’s run in Cincinnati and he’s happy to see him coaching here for the next two weeks for a variety of reasons.
Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has made no bones this offseason about looking to extend his unit’s mean streak and has been looking to light some competitive fires along the way. He decided to bring in a guest lecturer for the next two weeks to help deliver his point home when T.J. Houshmandzadeh signed up for one of the club’s four Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowships.
More uptempo? More two tight ends? How will Hue Jackson's offense shake out, the readers want to know. If Hue can do it all, he will, pending injuries and experience.
Bob Valvano is thrilled Devon and Leah Still have been chosen to receive the Jimmy V Perseverance Award: “It’s one of those stories that just transcend a community or a team or an athlete or even a sport."
Zeitler’s diligence was on display on Tuesday at the only Bengals’ practice this week that was open to reporters. After the team finished practicing, the 25-year-old stayed on the field with Alexander for nearly 30 minutes to do additional drills.
On Monday night Zeitler, Green and several other teammates made sure the service went smoothly as celebrity waiters at Andy and Jordan Dalton’s fourth annual fundraising dinner for their foundation.
Nineteen years later, former Bengals tight end Marco Battaglia is still the King of Queens. He's also a fellow Scarlet Knights tight end who predicts rookie Tyler Kroft is a nice fit for his old team.

From virtually the minute last season ended Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has been urging quarterback Andy Dalton to expand his role and on Tuesday as he watched Dalton prepare for the first voluntary practice of the spring he didn’t have to say a word. Literally.
This is why the Bengals signed veteran linebacker A.J. Hawk in free agency and why they drafted Texas Christian linebacker P.J. Dawson in the third round. Defensive coordinator Paul Guenther wants to be deep in practice as well as games.
The Bengals opened their voluntary on-field sessions Tuesday at Paul Brown Stadium and it wasn’t so much what offensive coordinator Hue Jackson saw from quarterback Andy Dalton but what he heard from him that pleased the demanding Jackson.
The Bengals’ Mike Nugent is halfway to his goal of kicking 20 years in the NFL. Which means if he makes it, half his career will come dealing with extra points that weren’t as automatic as they were during his first 10 seasons.
The spine of the Bengals locker room still runs through Andrew Whitworth and Domata Peko. But young leaders like Jeremy Hill (above) and Giovani Bernard are emerging.
