Open Thread: Recapping the Week that Was

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

What Bengals and other sports stories caught your eye this week? Come discuss them in our open thread.

The offseason is heating up now that teams are hitting the field for Organized Team Activities. The Bengals will be taking to the field Tuesday, and there's a number of story lines to monitor as the helmets come on.

Geoff Hobson joined Inside the Jungle to talk about the NFL Draft, free agency and the injury recoveries of Leon Hall and Geno Atkins.

Andrew Whitworth reacts to the idea of expanding the playoffs, but wants a little give and take.

Speaking of Atkins, he may miss the start of training camp, which is probably a good idea.

Hue Jackson says Andy Dalton needs to be great, while A.J. Green could become one of the greatest receivers of all-time.

The Bengals' 2014 schedule looks easy based on the 2013 results, but don't be deceived.

Dalton is already impressing his teammates in workouts.

Giovani Bernard as a slot receiver? Running backs coach Kyle Caskey thinks so.

As for BenJarvus Green-Ellis, one of the most respected players by both his teammates and coaches, he's likely not getting cut.

Marvin Jones could become a superstar in 2014 after exploding onto the scene in 2013.

The Cincinnati Reds are getting back on track. Hopefully, their slow start isn't something the Bengals go through in 2014.
