The Bengals have announced that their coaching staff will work with three college coaches in the NFL’s Bill Walsh Minority Coaching Fellowship program. One is former Bengals WR Glenn Holt, who played for the team from 2006-2008 after making the team as a tryout player at the rookie minicamp, will work as a coach during next week’s mandatory minicamp. Arnold Ale. Foster, who is the assistant head coach and offensive line coach at North Carolina Central, will also help the Bengals. The third coach is Dwayne Foster, who has coached at Prairie View A&M.
Andy Dalton enjoyed his Pro Bowl experience last year and isn’t ready to see it go away:
"“It’s a reward for a successful year and Hawaii is a great place to hang out with the rest of the guys and not worry about anything else. You can go to New Orleans anytime,” Dalton said of the upcoming Super Bowl site. “But Hawaii, you have to make a trek out of it. It’s a true reward.”"
OLB Thomas Howard had some nice praise for Vontaze Burfict and Micah Johnson:
"“You can see it,” Howard said of Burfict. “Very smart. He has the natural instincts of a middle linebacker. Once he understand how offenses are trying to attack him based on what they see and what the quarterback sees out of the safeties and things like that, he’ll have a better understanding of what’s going on around him. But he has good natural ability and instincts and Micah is a big guy with a lot of talent.”"
Mike Zimmer is liking what he’s seen so far with CB Terrence Newman, whom he’s previously coached with the Dallas Cowboys.
