We've spent much of this weekend going through the stories that mattered during our week in review series. But since there's more stories than we can properly promote, now we offer "...the rest of the story."

+ After a rookie season learning the offense and adjusting the NFL, quarterback Andy Dalton is growing comfortable in a leadership role now.

+ Linebacker Keith Rivers thinks that Keith Rivers will be a steal for the New York Giants.

+ Cincinnati is throwing away the pen and paper for iPads.

+ Cornerback Terence Newman reportedly had good offseason practices through OTAs and minicamps.

+ Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green is excited about a planned workout with Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Hoping to learn more from a veteran receiver considered as one of the greats in the game, Green expects to come away with some tips to increase his already lethal armory.

"I've always liked how he goes up and gets the ball," Green said. "His knowledge for the game -- he's probably not the fastest guy, but he runs some of the best routes. Just going out there and learning some of the stuff he does. I just want to get some little tips."

+ Quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese reflected on the whole Andy Dalton arm strength debate earlier this week, citing his technique as an area needed for improvement.

+ Head coach Marvin Lewis loves this year's undrafted free agent class that the team signed.

+ Offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth reflected on Chad Ochocinco, who signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins.

+ Former Bengals guard Bobbie Williams signed a two-year deal worth $2.925 million with the Baltimore Ravens.

+ Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer has had to adjust to the new rules regarding offseason practices this year.

+ Former Bengals linebacker Brandon Johnson signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

+ Former scout and current ESPN analyst Matt Williamson writes that Jermaine Gresham could be one of the best tight ends by 2015.
