WDW Episode 63 – Recapping the First Week of Free Agency

Can you believe it’s been 48 days since our last podcast? With Free Agency and the new league year kicking off last week, there couldn’t be a better time for us to return! Joining us this week is Bengals.com’s Geoff “Butch” Hobson where he helps us break down the Bengals early moves in Free Agency. [...]

Free Agency: What’s Your Rating?

The Bengals stopped sitting on their hands and started making some moves in free agency with the acquisitions of Travelle Wharton and Jason Allen and the re-signing of Reggie Nelson. Like everyone else, I was disillusioned at first as other teams opened up the vaults for Robert Meachem, Carl Nicks, and Ben Grubbs, among others. [...]

Debate Brewing Over Armon Binns

By failing to sign an established free agent wide receiver to play opposite A.J. Green, the Bengals have created a storm that will continue to build as to who should fill that role. One of the guys standing at the center of that storm is University of Cincinnati product Armon Binns.

Tebow… A Bengal?

Tim-Tebow

I have another submission for the growing stack of proof that Mike Florio is flat nuts. With Denver winning the Peyton Manning sweepstakes, the Broncos will be looking to unload Tebow pronto. Last night, Florio floated the idea that the Bengals might be a good fit for him. What?!?!

So Who Is The #2 WR?

The Bengals have a big hole opposite A.J. Green that needs to be filled. They need someone who can exploit opportunities when A.J. is double-covered. With the names we wanted to see fill that spot donning other uniforms (while the Bengals were sitting idly), the pickin’s are getting slim. We are now down to guys [...]

Bengals In the Fray: Add OG & DB

Bengals add Allen to the defensive secondary

The Bengals finally put their money where there proverbial mouth is yesterday, jumping into the free agent fray with both feet by bringing in two players at positions of need in guard Travelle Wharton and defensive back Jason Allen. Wharton, Carolina’s 3rd-round pick in the 2004 draft, has been a constant starter for the Panthers at [...]

Umm….So….Yeah….

Anytime, guys....

    So, we’re now 4 days into this thing called free agency, and the Bengals are still sitting on the sidelines.  Don’t get me wrong: I am not an advocate for overspending (even when you LEAD THE LEAGUE in cap space), but I would like to hear about more than simple “visits.”  Apparently PBS [...]

Warning: Danger Ahead

Warning

I am not exactly happy with the path that the Bengals seem to be following in the start of free agency. Yes, that path was as predictable as a hangover after a bender. But just because I could call it doesn’t mean I like it. I suspect I am not alone.

Bengals Schedule Visits For Free Agents

Some teams roared off of the starting line like a Ferrari in yesterday’s start to free agency. Tampa Bay landed Carl Nicks, and San Diego snagged Robert Meachem, both names mentioned frequently by Bengals fans. Other names, like Cortland Finnegan, were quickly plucked off of the free agent supermarket shelves. The Bengals, however, have piled [...]

Bengals Lead the League in Cap Space

  Today the NFL officially announced that the salary cap for 2012 with be 120.6 million dollars, which is only a slight increase of $200,000 from last year’s number. With the official ceiling set, the Bengals got some information that they can now use with the free agency period just 30 hours away. First, the [...]
