One last look at the Bengals roster before the final cuts
Beyond the scrums at wide receiver, running back and now defensive tackle, what's always interesting on a day like this one is the battle between youth and experience and the continuity from one season to the next. Once the dust clears, Taylor could very well have more than 40 players that he's brought in since he arrived in 2019.

Cincinnati Bengals analyst Dave Lapham Weighs in on Ja'Marr Chase's Drop Issues Ahead of Regular Season Opener - Sports Illustrated Cincinnati Bengals News, Analysis and More
When the Bengals took Ja'Marr Chase with the fifth pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, they thought they were adding a dynamic playmaker to an offense that already had Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd and Joe Mixon on the roster.

Evan McPherson could help the entire Bengals offense
A fifth-round pick is a significant resource to invest in a kicker. There is no way the Bengals can make that investment, watch McPherson have a perfect preseason kicking field goals including two from 50+ yards, and not make him the guy.

2021 NFL roster bubble: Notable players who could be traded or cut
This change allows for more time to make trades before the roster-cut deadline -- and during the elongated buildup to Week 1. The Patriots and Rams got the fun started with Wednesday's Sony Michel deal; look for a bevy of positional logjams to get settled in low-stakes veteran trades for late-round conditional picks. A Sam Bradford-type headline trade before Week 1 is always possible, too.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury empathetic on cut-down day: 'I was cut seven or eight times, and you remember that'
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury knows the process well.
