We wrote last week that this Saturday, June 20, the Bengals will open Paul Brown Stadium up so potential season-ticket buyers can check out seats. There's an added treat in that "the team will practice on the stadium field from 9:55 a.m. until 11:40 a.m."

Geoff Hobson writes that Chad Johnson needs to be consistent all the way around. In the meantime, you can catch Chad on the Joe Buck's debut on HBO.

During this week's practices, offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski doesn't plan to add much from what was already taught during OTAs, writes Joe Reedy.

"We may add one or two new things, but most of it is going to be a reinstallation of the concepts of what we started in the first OTA," Bratkowski said. "We're going to go back in the five practices for the benefit of the young players and kind've start over. Here's a play that you learned three weeks ago, and we're going to go in and teach it like they never heard it before and reinforce and detail out the fine points."

The general consensus is that 85 percent of the playbook was installed during the four weeks of OTAs. The past two weeks have been a little more about refined points of the playbook like the two-minute offense and gadget plays.

Pro Football Weekly "hears" that there will be a spirited competition between Rey Maualuga and Rashad Jeanty for strong-side outside linebacker.
