The Cincinnati Bengals released their first depth chart of the season on the mothership -- which can often be an over-analyzed thing because the chart will likely change dramatically from this point until the start of the regular season. Anyway, once you're beyond the shock of seeing Andy Dalton as the starting quarterback, here's a few highlights.

Brandon Tate is listed as the starting No. 2 wide receiver of Armon Binns. Andrew Hawkins is sitting behind A.J. Green as the backup but he's really the first-team slot receiver over Jordan Shipley. The offensive line is about where we expected, though Dennis Roland is currently over Matthew O'Donnell.

Taylor Mays is listed over Jeromy Miles and Tony Dye as the starting strong safety. Robert Sands and George Iloka are backing up free safety Reggie Nelson respectively. Jason Allen and Terence Newman are backing up Leon Hall and Nate Clements.

Here's the chart (and whatever you do, don't put these in stone)
