Trey Hendrickson’s Bengals contract helps good outweigh the bad
By now, Bengals fans know the drill — Hendrickson had 13.5 sacks last year but the number is a little misleading. Some of those were simple clean-ups or otherwise inflated and overall it was an anomaly of a performance. The team still hit him with a four-year deal worth $60 million.

"They were in the running for Golladay big time," Lapham said on the Bengals Booth Podcast. "Golladay wanted to sign with the Bengals, [that's] my understanding.

DeSean Jackson on joining Rams: Reuniting with Sean McVay an 'intriguing' factor
"There were other options out there. I could have went to other teams, other places. But my focus was really reuniting with Sean McVay," Jackson said on Friday, via the team's official transcript.
