Men in Stripes is a weekly Bengals podcast presented by and FanSided network.

Tyler Eifert is out for the next three months with surgery, which means Tyler Kroft will get some well needed reps with Andy Dalton. It also means Ryan Hewitt could also be looking at some reps in the tight end spot, and we can’t forget C.J. Uzomah or Jake Fisher.

The Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers Rivalry is still brewing, thanks to Le’Veon Bell‘s latest press conference. Bell is calling Vontaze Burfict‘s tackle “dirty,” which every analyst has called a clean tackle. Are the Pittsburgh Steelers a bunch of over privileged whiners?

Bengals OTA’s opened this week and a lot of people picked up where they left off, like A.J. Green and Andy Dalton. The new guys Cody Core, Tyler Boyd, Brandon LaFell, and Karlos Dansby are all starting to fit in nicely. Are OTA’s something that people should put more stock into?

Andrew Billings signed his rookie deal, which leaves William Jackson III as the lone Bengal rookie without his rookie deal in place. Dwight Freeny visited the Bengals on Wednesday. Would he be a good sign for Cincinnati? How about Brian Heartline or Anquan Boldin
