Bengals News (6/21): How would Ndamukong Suh look in stripes?

The Bengals could still use depth at the defensive tackle position. Could A big name be right to fix that?

Would Ndamukong Suh make sense for Bengals in free agency?
But if that doesn’t happen for any number of reasons, the Bengals might end up looking at other veteran free agents or even the trade market. The latter is where they found B.J. Hill, who broke out last year and now has the big-money extension.

Trae Waynes says 'in my head, I'm done' with football after seven NFL seasons with Bengals and Vikings
Waynes spoke on the Geary & Stein Sports Show podcast and when asked if he wants to continue playing football, he said, "It's open, but I'm not really exploring anything, to be honest with you.

But I'm retired, but it's not like I announced it or anything."

Cincinnati Bengals 53-man roster projection includes a battle to be Joe Burrow's No. 4 receiver
The Bengals are bolstered by one of the most promising passing attacks in the NFL. Quarterback Joe Burrow enters his third season and is one of the league's most accurate quarterbacks.

2022 NFL season: Who'll get the most touches from crowded position groups?
Just like last year, I'm looking at 11 of the most crowded position groups across the league, listing each group's players based on projected touches (from most to fewest). (I'll admit I wasn't incredibly accurate in my 2021 predictions, but I'm feeling much better about this exercise this time around.)

Ndamukong Suh wants to play in 2022, but it 'looks like the Bucs are out of the picture'
Suh ruling out the Bucs isn't a surprise considering the team signed veteran DT Akiem Hicks on May 31. Suh spent the last three seasons in Tampa, signing one-year deals along the way. The veteran won his first Super Bowl ring with the Bucs in the 2020 campaign.

Cardinals pass rusher Markus Golden still ready to 'hunt' without Chandler Jones
"I respect him and learned a lot from Chandler. I can seriously say he helped me become the player I am today. But whether I am playing with Chandler or anyone else, I feel like I'm a No. 1 (pass rusher). You've got to have that mindset."

Packers' Marcedes Lewis wants to break record for most seasons played by a tight end
"This year, I'll tie the record," Lewis said, via the team's official website. "It would be great to break it and then I would consider, 'OK, I've done that.' Eighteen is kind of bizarre, especially at the tight end position."
