Every year, the Cincinnati Bengals come up with a(n often-cheesy) slogan to don on t-shirts and other workout attire for the offseason training program.
The Bengals report to Cincinnati on Monday for voluntary offseason training activities (OTAs) and, the players will receive shirts that read “Smart. Fast. Physical.” when they arrive. That actually seems pretty fitting as the Bengals look to get younger and more athletic this offseason. The team has already followed this motto to an extent by cutting Rey Maualuga and moving on from Domata Peko in free agency. The draft will serve as another way for the Bengals to get smarter, faster and more physical as the team seeks to add young and athletic talent.
This is one of the more telling slogans the Bengals have used for their offseason attire in years.
“No matter all the other slogans, this is what it always gets back to for Marvin. He wants us fast, smart, and physical,” Bengals strength and conditioning coach Chip Morton told Bengals.com. “We want self-discipline from our players and accountability. An identity. This is who we are … Let’s keep the main things the main things. Let’s boil it down.”
