We’re into full padded practices and scrimmages when it comes to the Cincinnati Bengals and their training camp. Unfortunately, that’s about as heavy as they will get this preseason, but we’re getting a good glimpse at these new-look Bengals.

John Sheeran and I took the air Friday afternoon to answer reader and listener questions. While many were around Joe Burrow’s progress, a number of other topics were discussed:

  • What’s holding up a potential Joe Mixon contract extension?
  • How has Markus Bailey been looking in practice and with which team has he been running?
  • Do previously-undrafted guys like Winston Rose, Scotty Washington, Damion Willis and others have shots to make the roster this year?
  • What do we make of the level of character in the Bengals’ locker room?
  • On snap one of Week 1 as a rookie, is Joe Burrow already an instant upgrade from Andy Dalton?
  • What will the receiving corps look like on the final roster?

And much more!
