Dexter Jackson is giving away 10,000 books with Half Price Books to Children's Hospital.

Bengals newest safety, Corey Lynch, is married to the granddaughter of Reverend Billy Graham organizing team bible studies. Once Jon Kitna left Cincinnati, the Bengals had to deal with issues of character. It would seem that "void" has been filled.

The Bengals signed Clyde Logan, a receiver for Idaho State -- Marvin Lewis' old playground.

Perhaps Jason Shirley sees his chance with the Bengals as a second opportunity he should take advantage of.

Tyler Whaley is pretty pumped about being a Bengal -- his favorite NFL team. He has a long way to go, however.

Bengals Brigade thought the Bengals reached for Jerome Simpson. However, Mark Curnutte writes that the Pittsburgh Steelers had Simpson targeted seven slots later.

Why didn't the Bengals trade up to get Ellis? Chick Ludwig knows: "Too expensive. The Bengals would've had to give up their No. 1 and No. 3 picks, which turned out to be linebacker Keith Rivers and defensive tackle Pat Sims (Nos. 9 and 77 overall). Two is better than one."

Pat Sims is the youngest of 10 children. He was out of football 28 months ago when his sister died suddenly of a massive heart attack.

Wide Reciever Jerome Simpson was still on a cloud three days after being drafted.
