The Bengals signed 6th-Round pick Dan “Boom” Herron to a 4-year deal. He’ll face an uphill battle making the roster with Benjarvus Green Ellis, Bernard Scott, and Brian Leonard are already on the roster, but he does have one believer in former Bengal great Pete Johnson.

 

The only remaining unsigned Bengals draft picks are first-round OG Kevin Zeitler, and third-rounders WR Mohamed Sanu and DT Brandon Thompson.

 

Despite a down year in 2011 that led to his release, CB Terence Newman doesn’t believe at age 33 that he’s lost a step. He feels his problems were attributed to bad habits he developed with the Cowboys. Mike Zimmer should have no trouble getting Newman back to his Pro Bowl form if that’s the case.

 

RB Rashard Mendenhall says he’ll play for Steelers in 2012.

 

RB Ray Rice remains unsigned and  wants “Adrian Peterson money,” and the Ravens remain unwilling to pay it.

 

ESPN and Scouts Inc. analyst Matt Williamson stated today in his weekly chat that A.J. Green is one of the best WRs in the NFL going forward:
I would rather have Green for the next 3 years than any WR in the NFL other than Calvin Johnson. I guess Fitzgerald would still be in that conversation as well.
