It's unreasonable to expect that every single one of you spends every waking hour on this site to read the latest news, what others are saying about our team or the various other content we provide. So here's your opportunity to read what you may have missed recently.

+ Rookie offensive guard Kevin Zeitler admits that he has a lot of work to do -- which is great news for Bengals fans especially, but the team most importantly. Even though they were drafted in the first round, neither Zeitler nor cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick have shown the need for special treatment, both willing to listen, learn and become better players through coaching.

+ Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton began his offseason program the moment the postseason ended, tipping the scales at nearly 225 pounds while showing improvement on his deep ball.

+ Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, defensive tackle Geno Atkins and quarterback Andy Dalton were promoted on a top-20 list by of best players under the age of 25. In truth it's a top-10 list with another ten that "just missed the cut". Green is in the top-10 with Dalton and Atkins just missing the cut. But of the 20 players mentioned, three were Bengals (and that's the point we're making here).

+ Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis isn't sure about the No. 2 wide receiver position. It's going to be a fun training camp competition to observe for sure.

+ Breaking down the contract for second-round defensive tackle Devon Still.

+ Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins recorded the top single-game performance of the 2011 season according to Pro Football Focus.

+ Greg Cosell reflects on the 2012 NFL draft for the Cincinnati Bengals.

+ Our own Joe Goodberry takes a different perspective on what to expect at the wide receiver position, calling it a committee much running backs.

+ Football Outsiders examined the AFC North and the needs for each team. For the Bengals it's strong safety.

+ Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis doesn't see the down-side signing Vontaze Burfict as an undrafted free agent. Nor do we.

+ Lewis is also leaving the door open for more signings with room available on the 90-man roster.

+ The gang at Cold Hard Football Facts gave the Bengals a good grade from the 2012 NFL draft. Are we expecting anything less?

+ The Bengals placed offensive guard Chris Riley on waivers after he failed his physical on Tuesday.

+ Undrafted free agent quarterback Tyler Hansen is optimistic following the Bengals rookie minicamp last weekend. He'll most likely compete against third-string quarterback Zac Robinson for a spot on the roster.
