Well, so much for those good ol' jokes about the Bengals employing a bunch of criminals. Earlier today, rookies Mohamed Sanu and Kevin Zeitler tweeted that they were going to visit children at the Children's Hospital in Cincinnati. Sanu also tweeted a picture in which he is seen with Zeitler, Marvin Jones, Brandon Thompson, Vontaze Burfict and many other Bengals in the hospital.

RELATED ARTICLE: Are The Cincinnati Bengals Still The NFL's Bad Boys?
This bit of news is a huge 180 from what we have recently been hearing about the team. With Brandon Joiner recently being sentenced to three years in prison, the perception of Bengals still being attracted to bad character players and/or criminals has reared its ugly head once again. Our own Anthony Cosenza recently wrote a commentary depicting how the Bengals got to be known as the bad boys of the NFL, and if they should still be known by that title.
The article also mentions that the Bengals only have one arrest or indictment since January, while the Lions lead the NFL with five during that span. This bit of news is a nice change of pace from the recent hoopla of questioning why the Bengals sign troubled undrafted free agents. It's also pretty impressive that these players did this after a day that they spent a few hours practicing.
