Bengals overhaul of the offensive line looks near the finish
The Bengals began rebuilding their offensive line more than a year ago when new head coach Zac Taylor insisted on Jim Turner as his offensive line coach.

Thaddeus Moss explains why he chose Redskins over Patriots and Joe Burrow's Bengals
It's not often that a team signs an undrafted free agent that gets fans excited for the upcoming season, but the Washington Redskins picked up someone who many believe can come in and make a contribution on offense right away.

The same won't take place in Tampa, according to Christensen.

No. 1 overall draft picks of the 2010s ranked: Myles Garrett 3rd
The Bengals' selection of Joe Burrow with the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft kicked off a new decade of pick analysis, draft grades and prognostications. But before we flip the page onto the next generation of top guys, I thought it'd be fun to look back at each of the No. 1 overall selections of the past decade to see how well they stack up against one another.
