Thatr17;s not going to happen for real on April 25. Not only that, the only quarterback that is gone before the Bengals pick at No. 11 is Ohio Stater17;s Dwayne Haskins to Jacksonville at No. 7. That doesnr17;t figure to happen, either, with Nick Foles expected to John Hancock it with the Jaguars in free agency. Not only that, although the combine means absolutely nothing when it comes to playing football, it seems to have moved the needle for guys like Mississippi wide receiver DK Metcalf Boomer Esiason Jersey , Washington State tackle Andre Dillard and Missouri quarterback Drew Lock. But not enough to get into the top ten it appears, if you go off the Scouts Inc. big board on ESPN.com. Or, in the case of Lock and Metcalf, those positions wouldnr17;t appear to be on the Bengalsr17; radar in the first round.Bengals Re-Sign Brandon WilsonWilson, who will be a third-year player in 2019, joined the Bengals as a sixth-round draft pick in 2017 and has played in 24 games over his first two seasons.

Uzomah extensions have impact on Bengalsr17; draft plansBobby Hart and C.J. Uzomah will be back in the fold for the Cincinnati Bengals next season and beyond after word about their respective extensions broke Monday.Paul Daugherty column on Cincinnati Bengals 'New Dey'The Bengals, known facetiously in this space as The Men, are calling the rookie season of head coach Zac Taylor a New Dey. r0;New Dey Bengalsr17;r17; is less a slogan than an oxymoron. Just because you trade the beater for a Beemer doesnr17;t mean your17;ll drive any differently. The Bengals are the Bengals are the Bengals.Random NewsC.J. Mosley to get $85M deal with New York JetsNFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday morning that Gang Green is expected to sign former Baltimore Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley to a massive five-year, $85 million contract with $51 million guaranteed, per sources informed of the agreement.Browns expected to sign DT Sheldon RichardsonThe Browns emerged as the front-runner for Richardson in the wee morning hours on Tuesday, per Rapoport, less than 20 hours into the NFL's negotiating window.Anthony Barr expected to sign with New York JetsThe former Minnesota Vikings linebacker fell out of favor in the Twin Cities while other front-seven teammates saw big-time extensions. Barr, a four-time Pro Bowler, was drafted ninth overall by Minnesota in 2014. Over five seasons with the Vikes, Barr started 71 games Boomer Esiason Jersey White , forced seven fumbles and racked up 13.5 sacks.Chiefs expected to sign Tyrann Mathieu to 3-year dealThe second big-name safety to come off the board in free agency, Mathieu cashed in just hours after the Washington Redskins handed Landon Collins a gargantuan six-year, $84 million contract.

They absolutely demolished the Bills en route to a 47-3 win, which frankly was one of the biggest beatdowns the NFL has seen in recent memory.This isnr17;t Alabama vs. the little sisters of the poor. The league is created in a way that promotes parity and competitive games when even the best teams face the worst teams.So when an NFL team beats another by 44 points, oddsmakers take notice, and they currently have Baltimore as a 1.5-point favorite over Cincinnati in Week 2. Now, it has to be pointed out that the Bengals have won seven of the last nine meetings, and one of those losses was with A.J. Green out of the lineup. The other was with Ken Zampese still calling the offense Carlos Dunlap Jersey White , which is arguably worse than not having Green.The Bengals also went into Baltimore and knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs last season. On one hand, that gives you more confidence the Bengals can take care of business at home. On the other hand, the revenge factor is very real, and the Ravens will be hell-bent on getting theirs on Thursday Night Football.Then again, you could argue the Bengals want some measure of revenge themselves for the 20-0 home embarrassment they suffered to Baltimore in Week 1 last season. The Bengals take pride in defending their home turf, and theyr17;ll be ready to ensure a repeat of 2017 doesnr17;t happen in 2018.All told, I would give the Bengals an edge, but Ir17;d only favor them by 1-1.5 points. Donr17;t be surprised if the line moves a point or two by Thursday to make this a pick r16;em. But if history has told us anything, donr17;t pick Baltimore against a healthy Green and a competent offensive coordinator.
