Tight ends waived, Lemar Marshall returns home and a Sam Wyche sighting

Either later today, or tomorrow morning, we'll release Monday Night's preview. That will, like the others, will appear in the Diaries to the right. As of now, it's more or less a press release. When we hit the regular season the preview will include press releases, interviews with opposing bloggers and updated stats... plus more when we have it.

Bobby Blizzard and Sean Mulcahy were placed on waivers. Likely no one will pick either up and both tight ends would go on IR to rehab. [Curnutte's blog]

More on Lemar Marshall

"Yeah, I mean, guys are welcoming me. I played with a couple (Kenny Watson). It's a blessing right now. I'm trying to make the best of it. It feels good to be on a team. I didn't have long to sit out. God gave me the opportunity. It feels good to be home. Once the season starts, I'll be bombarded with tickets." - Lemar Marshall on coming back home.

"It means that everybody has to pick it up," Lapham said. "Guys that thought maybe they had it made may not have it made as easily as they thought. Lemar is another guy to compete for a job. (Head coach Marvin Lewis) knows all about him. He gives them a lot of versatility. He's like Landon Johnson, but a more experienced Landon. He can play every linebacker position and special teams." - Dave "Mr. Bengal" Lapham on picking up Marshall.
