The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Pay Day

2020 Training Camp has opened up and we’re getting our first looks at Joe Burrow and the boys! This week, we recap and analyze roster moves, take a look at the ongoing Joe Mixon contract saga and even play a fun “word association game”. John and Anthony also continue their “2020 Bengals Potential Breakout Players List”.

  • Training Camp 2020 is here (at least the version a pandemic would allow) and we’re getting our first glimpses (from afar) of the new-look Cincinnati Bengals. Joe Burrow has been throwing to A.J. Green and all is trending up for the team.
  • On this week’s show, we talk about the recent roster news and what the Bengals’ options should be to fill the dwindling defensive tackle spot. There is also potential smoke to a Joe Mixon contract extension fire, so we look at some of Duke Tobin’s recent comments on the star back—especially in light of an interview he had with The Orange and Black Insider back at the Combine.

We also had a little fun in the form of a “word association” game and continued our “2020 Potential Bengals Breakout Players” list.

Some of the items on tap this week:

  • What are some of the best options for the Bengals at defensive tackle with some of the roster moves they’ve had to make at the position?
  • We look at the Joe Mixon contract negotiations from a lot of angles and bring up a few Duke Tobin quotes.
  • What are some of the single words or small phrases that come to mind on such Bengals players like Jonah Williams, Alex Erickson, Auden Tate and more?
  • Can Darius Phillips be a major weapon on defense and special teams in 2020?
