When it rains, it pours. Since brewing today's first cup of coffee, news regarding our Cincinnati Bengals hasn't stopped. Left and right reports are flying through us as if we stood in the middle of Daytona's back-stretch. So here's a brief recap on what's gone down, or going down, on Wednesday.

+ KEITH RIVERS ON THE TRADE MARKET. There are reports gave fire to smoke regarding a rumor that the Bengals were looking to ship Keith Rivers to the New York Giants. The last known report is that a trade could be completed by the end of the day. Even if it's not, NFL insiders picking up the story makes one believe that we're out of the "rumor" stage.

+ BENGALS ADD ANOTHER VETERAN CORNERBACK. Cincinnati and cornerback Terence Newman agreed to a one-year deal, giving Cincinnati seven cornerbacks on the roster with an average age of 28.6 years old. If Rico Murray and Brandon Ghee fail to make the team, the average age jumps to 30 years old, though we're not factoring in rookie cornerbacks either.

+ TEAM ANNOUNCES OFFENSIVE LINEMEN SIGNINGS. Bengals announced that they signed guard Jacob Bell and offensive tackle Dennis Roland. Bell we've known about for some time, but the team hadn't officially announced it yet. There were reports that Cincinnati was close to signing Roland, announcing on Wednesday that he's returning in 2012.
