There's a possibility that the Bengals could lose both their tight ends by next week. Reggie Kelly has already visited the Atlanta Falcons. He visited the Cardinals Saturday and plans to visit Oakland Sunday. Cincinnati?
Mark Curnutte said it perfectly:
If Kelly leaves, Curnutte says that the Bengals would likely use a second-day pick for a tight end. "Cincinnati coaches interviewed several tight ends at the NFL scouting combine last week, including Clark Harris of Rutgers."
Likely you'll see an increase of Kelly's demands with recent signings. Kyle Brady signed a two-year, $5.3 million deal with the Patriots that includes a $2 million signing bonus. Good scratch. Scouts.com lists the best available tight ends:
Ludwig says of Graham:
Graham's agent confirmed the Bengals' call. Visits are being lined up. "But not in your direction," agent Jack Mills said from Boulder, Colo. "I'm not saying we won't talk to (the Bengals), but it's unlikely. He's looking more to the western part of the U.S. because he's from here (Denver)."
Kevin Kaesviharn will also be in Arizona this week.

The Bills are looking to trade Takeo Spikes rather than just releasing him. Their mistake though was letting out that Spikes might be released. Which means most teams will just wait rather than giving up a draft pick and picking up Spikes' salary.
