Jay Gruden plans a RB-by-Committee Offense in Cincinnati

With Cedric Benson set to leave after being the workhorse RB the past four seasons in Cincinnati, Gruden would like to move to a two or three RB system. This keeps the backs fresh throughout the year and gives added dimensions to your offense, assuming your backs have different skill-sets. This is something the Giants have done over the years with Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs, and D.J. Ware. It wouldn’t make since to have Benson paired with a back like Rudi Johnson, who just pound out short gains. The Bengals have to find a more consistent pass-catching RB, something they haven’t had since Chris Perry’s brief career.

 

NFL Salary Cap could be Lower than Expected

I actually hope this is true, because the Bengals have so much money to spend being $60 million under the cap, this would only hurt a team like Pittsburg, who’s over the salary cap, and perhaps help the Bengals land an elite free agent, like Mike Wallace.

 

Giants look to keep CB Terrell Thomas

Thomas would be a nice target for the Bengals at CB, as there is a growing belief that Leon Hall will start the 2012 season on the PUP list, and Thomas is close to the top of this free agent CB market.
