News, Notes, and Links: July 24, 2013

USA TODAY Sports

Taking a moment to check things around the interwebz.

+ During the team's pep rally this Thursday, the Bengals will have several alumni on hand to visit with fans and sign autographs. The roster of former Bengals ranges from former quarterback Ken Anderson, to running back James Brooks, wide receiver Tim McGee, guard Max Montoya, and linebacker Brian Simmons. The list:

Ken Anderson, Louis Breeden, James Brooks, Barney Bussey, Glenn Bujnoch, Ron Carpenter, Brad Cousino, Larry Ely, M.L. Harris, Ira Hillary, Robert Jackson, Stanford Jennings, Joe Kelly, Dave Lapham, Mike Martin, Tim McGee, Max Montoya, Rick Razzano, Lamar Rogers, Brian Simmons, John Simmons, John Stofa, David Verser, Joe Walter.

+ SB Nation released the Bengals training camp primer, which we incidentally took no part in (so don't blame us for forgetting about the safety position battle).

+ Former Bengals offensive guard Travelle Wharton is adding the Denver Broncos to his free agency tour. He spent yesterday with the Carolina Panthers.

+ Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams signed a six-year deal (five-year extension really) worth $40.25 million. That's the value of a wide receiver that's averaged 64 receptions, 910 yards receiving and 23 total touchdowns in three seasons. Someone has a nice shinny up-arrow next to their names.

+ New rule. All team doctors have to seek out the crew chief before each preseason, regular-season and postseason games.

"This will enable the officials, if they suspect a player has been injured, to quickly identify the appropriate team physician and bring that potential injury to your attention,"Elliot Pellman medical advisor to the league wrote in a memo. "Please make every effort to introduce yourself to the referee prior to all games."

+ The media wants to define NFL players as criminals. But as Titans linebacker Jonathan Willard proved by saving a family from a burning car, that's ridiculous.
