Bengals Add Fredi Knighten to Coaching Staff
Knighten, 28, joins Cincinnati after spending the 2021 season as an offensive analyst at Utah State University.

Mike Brown Moves Between The Eras To Open Another Bengals Training Camp
Brown turns 87 in two weeks and he still sounds as pumped as the kid who played hearts with his Cleveland Browns heroes in the 1940s training camps. He still sounds like the 32-year-old assistant general manager who threw passes with the expansion Bengals' only player while trading good-natured barbs with quarterback John Stofa. He's still fan-boy enough that last month he happily called two of his more coveted players from the past, Isaac Curtis and Willie Anderson, and shared their jubilation when he told them they were in the Bengals Ring of Honor.

Cincinnati Bengals Get Good News About Alex Cappa and Samaje Perine

Ranking each of the NFL’s new alternate helmets for 2022
Cincinnati defined a very understated type of cool last year during its playoff run. The ghostly black-and-white helmets bolster the look and feel of a team populated by young, exciting stars. The White Tiger aesthetic is especially refreshing given how rarely the Bengals come to mind for this sort of thing. Cincinnati has incredible throwback potential but, through the tail end of the Marvin Lewis era, seemed trapped in a stylistic holding pattern. Joe Burrow can pull off White Tiger. Andy Dalton? Maybe not so much.

Ravens rookie LB David Ojabo remains unsigned, holding out of training camp
"From my understanding, the argument is about the third-year guarantee," Rapoport said. "If you look at the distribution of where players are and how much is guaranteed in the third year, the Houston Texans fully guaranteed the third year of their second-round pick (defensive back Jalen Pitre), which has caused everyone to go into flux a bit."
