Bengals are interested in guard Richie Incognito

The Bengals at guard is kind of tricky. Will they sign Bobbie Williams back? The latest report is that both Williams and the Bengals were in a "holding pattern". They reportedly expressed interest in guard Chester Pitts; supposedly to move along negotiations with Williams, as nothing more has been said of Pitts. Yet, Williams hasn't signed and one has to wonder how impatient the Bengals will get.

Nate Livings and Evan Mathis man left guard while there's a possibility that the Bengals could eye Idaho guard Mike Iupati during next month's NFL draft. But to be honest, I don't see that right now.

Mike Berardino of the Sun Sentinel writes that the Bengals are one of three teams that could make a play on guard Richie Incognito; otherwise known as being voted the NFL's dirtiest player by his NFL peers.

Incognito is 6 feet 3 and 324 pounds. He spent the bulk of his rookie year on injured reserve after suffering a major knee injury at the NFL Scouting Combine in 2005, and he missed the final 12 games in 2007 following surgery to repair a dislocated right kneecap.

Talent isn't the issue with Incognito. The only thing holding him back, it seems, is his temper.

I like him already.
