Bengals Mailbag: “JOBJ”, free agency waves and screen repairs

This week, we talk about “JOBJ”, Jackson Carman, Jessie Bates and much more!

The Bengals are in the midst of their summer workouts and are charging towards training camp. National opinions seem to be mixed on the team’s outlook for 2022, wondering if last year’s Super Bowl run was little more than a one-hit-wonder, or if they’ve got what it takes for a budding dynasty.

We had takes and answers to that question and many others this week. We went live for a Happy Hour session, of sorts and had some fun. Here’s what was on tap:

  • OBJ to the Bengals? Could “JOBJ” be thing in Cincy?
  • All things Jessie Bates.
  • What are expectations with Jackson Carman this year?
  • Why didn’t the Bengals run more screens last year—particularly in the Super Bowl? Should we expect more with the new starters on the offensive line this year?
  • There is another wave of free agency coming—are the Bengals going to do anything during the summer months to add help?
  • And more!

If we didn’t get to yours, you can send your questions to us in the future through a number of ways:

  • A number of live chats and comment threads. On this post, the above-embedded YouTube video, Cincy Jungle’s Facebook and more.
  • Call/Text (949) 542-6241.
  • Email us at
  • Tweet @BengalsOBI or @CincyJungle.
