AFC North Headlines: Kevin Zeitler Adopts Bengals, and Remembering Forrest Gregg

 

 

Bengals guard Kevin Zeitler has become an adoptive parent of two Bengal tigers at the Cincinnati zoo. He’s named them Taj and Who Dey. At this rate, he’ll be a fan-favorite in Cincy before he even takes an NFL snap.

 

 

Former Bengals Head Coach and Packers great Forrest Gregg recently recalled his career in the NFL when it was plagued with a culture of accepting concussions. Gregg was a 6x-NFL champion with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys. As a coach, he led the Bengals to the Super Bowl in 1981. Gregg was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977, but now  he’s now fighting for his life as he battles Parkinson’s Disease. At age 78, his time on this Earth may now be limited, but his outstanding career both as a player and a head coach will never be forgotten.

 

With the Supplemental Draft upcoming, don’t expect the Browns to use a pick on former Baylor WR Josh Gordon.

 

Bobbie Williams has already been installed with the Ravens’ first-team offense at left guard. Either Bobbie still has plenty left in the take after recovering from a broken ankle last season, or the Ravens’ O-line is in dire trouble.

 

Jermaine Gresham helps homeless man turn 50 cents into $100.

 

RB Brandon Jackson has established himself as the Browns No. 2 back behind top draft pick Trent Richardson.
