    Re: 2017 Bengals Off-season

    Reasonable 2017 free agency prospects, per PFF, the Bengals could sign if they are serious about winning (Any team that retains a HC who is 0-7 in the playoffs and is coming off one of the most disappointing seasons in the league isn't serious about winning):


    Prince Amukamara, CB, Jacksonville Jaguars, 76.6: The Bengals have a decision to make with Adam Jones, who has gotten into more off-field trouble this winter and would be a cap savings of $6.83 million to the Bengals if cut. If they do release Jones, Amukamara would be a steady, economical replacement.


    DeSean Jackson, WR, Washington Redskins, 77.0: They’ll likely need to endure a bidding war for him, but Jackson is an ideal WR target. QB Andy Dalton has cracked the top 10 in deep accuracy two years in a row, and Jackson’s game-breaking speed would complement A.J. Green perfectly. Jackson posted catches of at least 25 yards in 10 of 16 games in 2016.


    Brandon Williams, DI, Baltimore Ravens, 75.9: Williams has never offered much as a pass-rusher, but has been an excellent run defender for the Ravens. His ability to absorb blocks would instantly upgrade a run defense that finished 23rd in raw grading last season. The fact they’d be signing a quality player off the roster of a divisional opponent would be an added bonus to signing Williams.

    It's because of Mike Brown that they now have a rule that says teams have to spend to a certain amount. You'd think all they would need would be a rule liniting how MUCH teams can spend, rather than how LITTLE. But hey, Mike Brown!
    When it's a seller's market, you sell.
    When it's a buyer's market, you buy.

    Why is this concept so difficult to understand?

    Re: 2017 Bengals Off-season

    From Rotoworld w/ Rotoworld comments:

    Western Michigan WR Corey Davis (ankle) will not run the 40-yard dash at WMU's pro day on March 15.

    Davis underwent what was reported to be minor ankle surgery back in early February after injuring it while training. "Minor," of course, is a relative term. The 6-foot-3, 213-pounder was already ruled out as a potential runner for the NFL Scouting Combine. Scratch pro day, too, now. Rotoworld's Josh Norris views Davis as the No. 1 wideout in this class. It is not yet clear how his lack of showing in workouts will affect his stock (if it affects it at all), but given that he is working with agent to set up a workout for interested squads down the road, this could just be a minor speed bump.

    Williams and Amukamura would be fine, but I'd rather have Kenny Stills over Jackson. I think Stills could be a sleeper next to AJ Green.

    Reuben Foster who I saw on a lot of Mocks to the Bengals was sent home from the combine after a verbal altercation with a hospital worker. That move right there should cost the young man millions....

    Foster sent home.

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2017/st...mbine-argument

    Former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker Reuben Foster, a potential top-10 pick in next month's NFL draft, is being sent home from the Indianapolis scouting combine for a "heated altercation" he got into Friday with a hospital worker, according to multiple sources.

    If we could get Tyler Boyd's teammate in the 2nd Rd, that would be great.

    Re: 2017 Bengals Off-season

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Penn State WR Chris Godwin's official forty time at the NFL Combine was 4.42.

    Godwin had the kind of workout which elevates a prospect. Measuring in at 6-foot-1, 209 pounds, Godwin ran the second-fastest forty among the first receiver group and excelled in on-field drills. He benched 225 pounds 19 times. Godwin is no slouch on tape, either, as Matt Harmon of*Reception Perception*charted Godwin with the best contested-catch rate among any receiver prospect he has evaluated in the last two years. Coming off a stellar Combine, Godwin could start garnering first-round buzz.

    While DeSean Jackson led the NFL in 2 of the last 3 years in yards-per-catch, Stills offers us the exact same ability to take the lid off of the Defense, while providing a quality deep target to both pull coverage away from Green, and to take advantage of Dalton's proven success at converting deep passes. While DeSean offers much more underneath and across the middle of the field, the Bengals don't need that, and consequently could get Stills for much less in a very weak WR FA market.

    Brandon Marshall is now available, which will pull one bidder away from Stills.

    Jeffrey, DeSean, Pryor and Marshall are the Tier-1 FA's. Stills is firmly in Tier-2. Mike Brown likes Tiers 3-5.

    Re: 2017 Bengals Off-season

    Godwin's a guy I was looking at in the middle of the draft. After watching a bit of tape on him, many sites I read had him going late, around the 5th round. Didn't make any sense to me.

    What do you guys think about Evan Engam? TE, listed at 6'3" and 234 lbs. Ran a 4.42 40. Very productive senior season, lit up Alabama for 9/138/1. Why not just convert him to WR? Pick him up in the 3rd.

    234? Pretty small for a TE.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Clemson WR Mike Williams posted a 32.5-inch vertical jump at the NFL Combine.

    Add Williams to the list of Combine "losers." He elected not to run the 40-yard dash -- draw your own conclusions on that one -- and then posted a poor vertical as a jump-ball specialist. There was one positive. Williams logged a strong 10-foot-1 broad jump at 6-foot-4, 218 pounds.*

    Re: 2017 Bengals Off-season

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    ESPN's Kevin Weidl wrote that it is "[h]ard to argue that there is anyone else whose helped themselves more in the post-season process than East Carolina WR Zay Jones."

    Jones kicked off his draft process with a strong showing during the Senior Bowl practice week, then ramped it up by running a crisp, speedy 4.45-second 40-yard dash during Saturday's testing in Indianapolis. He also hoisted the bar a position-respectable 15 times in the bench press on Friday. ESPN's Mel Kiper earlier mocked Zay into the first round. We think that may be a bit rich, but early on Day 2 is very much in play with the East Carolina record-setter.
