Bengals Sign a Running Back

Will Brown do backflips in Stripes?

The Bengals got a bit of a jump on free agency with the signing of former Detroit Lions running back Aaron Brown yesterday. Brown is heading into his fourth NFL season after having spent his first three seasons with Detroit, who selected him in the 6th round of the 2009 NFL draft.  Brown was cut [...]

Free Agency: Hot Corners

  When free agency opens next month, there will be some big-name cornerbacks hitting the market. Cincinnati could use one, but it is unclear if the team will spend its considerable cap space on the position. For one, the team has already locked up Leon Hall long-term.

Keeping Their Own

Cincinnati Bengals v Atlanta Falcons

Free agency can be a frustrating time for WhoDey fans because the Bengals are almost never in the hunt for the top free agents every year.

Curry

I have noticed rumblings on ProFootballTalk.com that the Seahawks are entertaining offers for LB Aaron Curry, their 1st round pick from 2009. PFT reports that they are currently talking trade with three teams, although they do not name those teams.

crazy

At mid-week, I am only now able to say that I am at peace with the debacle that was last Sunday:  Our beloved and infuriating Bengals lost an infinitely winnable game  to a clearly  inferior opponent at home.  I may finally be able to acknowledge it, but it still hurts to write it.
