Coley Harvey's latest Bengals 53-man roster projection
ESPN Bengals beat writer Coley Harvey takes his latest stab at projecting the Bengals' final 53-man roster will look like. He has Mario Alford and Denarius Moore making it at WR with Brandon Tate getting cut. Harvey also has veteran DT Pat Sims being cut, which would be a big surprise as this stage. Defensive tackle was arguably Cincinnati's weakness last year, and Sims was a solid role player with Cincinnati from 2008-12 before leaving for Oakland. I'd love to see Devon Still make it as much as anyone, but his performance on the field just hasn't been as good as Sims.

ESPN Bengals training camp preview
Coley Harvey takes a look at what to expect from the Bengals when training camp opens for them later this week. He actually has H-back Ryan Hewitt on the bubble watch, so maybe he's not as much of a lock as has been made out to be.
