The Bengals will be making cuts throughout the day, and the first one appears to have been their potential starting fullback:

Conner was in a fierce battle with Orson Charles for a starting spot, but it wasn’t just a matter of a positional battle here, but a philosophical debate as well. Do you go with Conner, a true FB who will enhance a running game that has been devoid of consistent play over the past three seasons?

Or do you go with Charles and opt to use an H-back, who can offer decent run-blocking, but operates more as an added receiving that out of the backfield in an offense that has lacked pass-catching options outside of A.J. Green?

The Bengals appear to be opting for the versatility and better receiving abilities of Charles.
