New, comment

What is the best option for Cedric Ogbuehi’s future? Who are some of the most interesting players and position groups in OTAs this year? We talk about these topics and more happenings within the AFC North on this week’s episode of OBI.

Though the league is making some major national headlines, the Bengals are keeping busy with their own news as the month of June approaches. With the start of OTAs there are a bunch of items for discussion, even though training camp is a couple of months away.

Here are some of the topics on the table for this week’s episode of The Orange and Black Insider, which you can watch above, listen to below or download on iTunes!

  • Is Carlos Dunlap making the right decision by skipping OTAs?
  • Cedric Ogbuehi is going to be taking reps as a backup tackle at both spots, as well as at guard. What does that say about Christian Westerman, Alex Redmond, Trey Hopkins and others vying for the open right guard spot?
  • Speaking of Ogbuehi, some people think it’s time for the team to just trade or cut him. We think they should at least ride out the summer with him as he works at guard and under the tutelage of Frank Pollack.
  • Given the injury history with Bengals’ tight ends, might the team want to explore a possible trade for Ravens tight end, Maxx Williams? After all, Baltimore did add two tight ends in the first three rounds in this year’s draft.
  • Also regarding the Ravens, what happens if Lamar Jackson lights up the preseason? Might the roller coaster ride that is Joe Flacco leave Maryland?
  • What are some early predictions for the Bengals and their players this year?
