To say that the Cincinnati Bengals were the biggest surprises of the 2021 season is an understatement.

Around the league

Terry McLaurin, Deebo Samuel among seven NFL players who deserve a raise RIGHT NOW
It sounds so logical, but across the league, there are hard-line management types who believe you don't pay a player unless -- and until -- you have to. They place a greater focus on building for tomorrow than winning today. On a certain level, this makes sense -- if you subscribe to the traditional, conservative business model that treats the salary cap as an inflexible object. Teams have won championships with that mindset. But that philosophy can also create a wall between the locker room and the front office, as we have seen again this offseason with players seeking trades or withholding services from workouts because of dissatisfaction with their contract situations.

Commanders' Ron Rivera on DC Jack Del Rio's $100K fine: 'This is about him impacting the football team'
"This is not [about] the fact that he exercised his right to free speech. This is about him impacting the football team," Rivera said, via Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post. "I believe in the first amendment very strongly. … But the thing we all have to understand with these rights, these freedoms come tremendous responsibility, and we have to understand that as well. This is about the impact that was made on our football team, the distraction it has become.
