Senior Bowl 2013: Brown Reportedly Impressed With Gillislee's Practice On Tuesday

New, comments

Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown is in Mobile, Alabama checking out the talent at this year's Senior Bowl. One running back had an impressive enough practice to warrant Mike Brown's attention.

According to the official twitter account with RosterWatch.com, Cincinnati Bengals owner, president and general manager Mike Brown was overheard speaking with his scouts regarding Florida running back Mike Gillislee, who reportedly had a good practice during Tuesday's practice in Mobile, Alabama.

We always caution this time of year not to read too much into those reports, largely because teams often do routine diligence to have a file on the player for later (such as a free agency visit or waiver wire) or are simply impressed by a player like a typical fan.

That being said the Bengals are expected to address the position this offseason. BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Daniel Herron are Cincinnati's only signed running backs in 2013 with Cedric Peerman listed as a restricted free agent.

Our own Joe Goodberry lists Gillislee as a change-of-pace back in his rankings (which continues later today).
