The Bengals have agreed to terms with 1st-rounder Kevin Zeitler, whose expected to be the teams’ starting right guard when the 2012 season opens. The only two draft picks that are unsigned are 3rd-round WR Mohamed Sanu and 3rd-round DT BranDon Thompson, and the full Bengals roster stands at 87 strong.
With WR Brandon Tate taking reps with the 1st-team offense, QB Andy Dalton is confident of Tate’s abilities to contribute as a WR and not just a return-man threat:
I’m excited about him. He’s done a good job. You can tell he’s put in the work this offseason. He’s running around well, and right now it’s just getting everybody on the same page.
CB Terrence Newman believes a fresh start with his old defensive coordinator, Mike Zimmer, will help him revive his Pro Bowl form.
It’s also worth noting that the new Vikings stadium deal has officially becomes official.
