Walker: Bengals Fans Might Like Mandatory Spending

The new labor agreement should make rookie deals easier for Mike Brown and his team. We hope.

ESPN.com’s James Walker explored one of the possible provisions of a new labor agreement, an expected increase to the salary floor (the minimum a team can spend on its players).

Roster Care

Even after the draft, the Bengals have some significant holes on their roster and will need to fill in as many as they can once free agency (whatever form it takes) begins. Geoff Hobson looks at some of the biggest questions. Here are my thoughts on a few of them. Quarterback:  I still think the [...]

Recipe for Disaster

I’ve already attempted to tap the brakes on the Andy Dalton starting-quarterback bandwagon, but the thing keeps chugging along. So let me do my best to pull the emergency brake.
