Good morning everyone! We've reached the midway point of the week. And hopefully you're in one piece. 

On Tuesday Dhani Jones officially retired from the NFL. And truth be told I'm sad to see him go. For the past four seasons he has been one of my favorite Bengals' players to watch on defense. Not only did I admire the way he played the game, but I also praised him for the way he conducted himself on and off the field. 

Jones was the glue that held the Bengals together during his tenure in Cincinnati. He was a leader with his style of play on the field along with his ability to come through in the clutch. Not only was he a brick wall at stopping opposing offenses, he was a wise decision-maker when it came to his game, and a leader for everyone on defense.

He was truly a class act and it's disappointing to see one of the good guys depart from the game. But at some point everyone's time comes. And for Jones that was now. I wish him the best of luck for the future. Any organization that he works for will be lucky to have him.

Alright here is a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Tuesday.
