Brooks: Bengals offer three key advantages for Joe Burrow
NFL Network's Bucky Brooks believes Cincinnati Bengals offer three key advantages for rookie quarterback Joe Burrow.

Cincinnati Bengals: 4 players due for a bounceback in 2020
The “New Dey” suggested by the team last year really starts for the Cincinnati Bengals in 2020. A long-planned roster overhaul and the arrival of Joe Burrow should coincide with some key bounce-back performances for big names.

Cincinnati Bengals taking same approach with Joe Burrow that LSU took
But simply selecting the right quarterback is only the beginning. Just having Burrow on the roster won’t help the Bengals if they don’t use him correctly. We’ve seen plenty of NFL teams squander talent over the years.

Boomer Esiason says the Bengals need new uniforms
"The one thing I will say, going into next year, the Bengals are going to have to redo their uniforms. They are just horrific," Esiason said on 'Boomer and Gio' on CBS Sports Radio. "They just got too much stuff going on. Too much orange. Too many things happening on that uniform."

After a year’s delay, Bengals ready for Jonah Williams to become ‘cornerstone’ left tackle
The Cincinnati Bengals started the 2020 NFL Draft by selecting LSU quarterback Joe Burrow with the No. 1 choice. Cincinnati’s next pick came leading off the second round, when they took Clemson wide receiver Tee Higgins.

Bengals: Tee Higgins and Michael Thomas have striking similarities
Much like Thomas, Higgins had to wait for a number of other receivers to be selected before it was his turn to receive a call from one of the NFL’s head coaches. Six other pass catchers were drafted before him, to be exact. Both were overlooked and criminally under-rated in their respective classes.

3 most likely undrafted free agents to make the Cincinnati Bengals' roster
To the casual football fan, undrafted free agents are often an afterthought. To decision-makers across the NFL, however, the process of securing players that didn’t hear their name called in the draft is just as serious as any other business they carry out. The people calling the shots for the Cincinnati Bengals are no exception.

2021 NFL mock draft roundup: Bengals get Joe Burrow some serious help
CBS Sports’ Josh Edwards goes a similar route, giving the Bengals Oregon lineman Penei Sewell at No. 2: “Sewell is too good of a prospect to bypass. By adding the Oregon product, the Bengals can move Jonah Williams to the right side or slide him inside. The protection of Joe Burrow is of the utmost importance.”

Bengals' D-line coach expects a Pro Bowl season for Sam Hubbard
Recently, team reporter Marisa Contepeli caught up with defensive line coach Nick Eason, a former player himself, to discuss what is expected to once again be a strength in the upcoming season.

Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar posts bail, released from jail, attorney confirms
Dunbar's release comes three days after he and Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker were issued arrest warrants after being accused of armed robbery during an incident on May 13.

Jason Kelce confident Andre Dillard can take over at LT
Andre Dillard returns for his second professional season with the hopes he can become Philadelphia's answer at the most important position on the offensive line. He was drafted 22nd overall in 2019 with the hopes he'd eventually grow into the team's next franchise player at the position, but when thrown into the fire as a rookie, he understandably struggled. With Jason Peters currently floating at sea as a free agent, it seems as if this is the beginning of Dillard's time.

Thanks to the mega-popular ESPN documentary, "The Last Dance," MJ's already prominent name has seen a resurgence in prominence over the last month. So much so that Rodgers was asked during a conference call on Friday to share his thoughts on the doc and the man himself ahead of its May 17 finale.
