As May turns to June, the Cincinnati Bengals’ offseason program rolls on as OTAs dominate headlines.

This past week, we saw quarterback Joe Burrow make progress in his recovery by launching some throws downfield for the first time on the practice field. Burrow’s on-field rehab is intoxicating, but it’s not the only story to follow right now.

On the latest episode of The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast, John and Anthony discussed the latest developments with Burrow, as well as:

  • C.J. Uzomah’s impressive eight-and-a-half month recovery from his torn Achilles.
  • The idea of rookie Ja’Marr Chase being more versatile than Cincinnati’s previous WR1.
  • Jessie Bates being Pro Football Focus’ eighth-ranked safety in the NFL.
