The Bengals have been the best team in the NFL when it comes to managing the salary cap, especially when re-signing players for second and third contracts.
Rummaging through the internet to bring you latest news about the Cincinnati Bengals so that you don’t have to do it – this is your Who Dey Dish for Sunday, February 28.
"It takes great management to make a team great, and the Bengals’ staff has been excellent over the years. Seattle, Denver, Green Bay and New England have all done a great job in salary cap management, but Cincinnati has been the best in football, at least when it comes to backloading contracts and mortgaging the future.Jason Fitzgerald of Over the Cap noticed the Bengals have been extremely successful when it comes to cap management, observing that while the Bengals “may [have] the shrewdest front office in the NFL, they get ignored because they lose every year in the first round and nobody pays attention to them.”Fitzgerald praised Cincinnati’s ability to sign players to reasonable long-term deals, urging NFL fans not to ignore the value the Bengals drive from their long-term contracts."
"The Bengals are getting to know many players this weekend at the NFL Combine both on- and off-the-field. Yesterday, it was reported that the team met Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman, and now, Cincy Jungle sources have indicated the team met with Southern Utah strong safety, Miles Killebrew.With Reggie Nelson and George Iloka both set to hit free agency, safety could become a need for the Bengals in the NFL Draft and the team is preparing to face that reality, if need be.Killebrew participated in the Senior Bowl where he showed up weighing 219 pounds, 11 pounds less than he did during the 2015 season to show he can match up with the fluidity needed at the safety position in the NFL. Killebrew told The Washington Post that he aspires to be like Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor. The Post also noted that it’s possible Killebrew could play safety or linebacker at the NFL level."
