Another day of training camp is in the rearview mirror for the Cincinnati Bengals and Tuesday’s practice was the first padded practice of training camp. This only upped the ante in practice and we saw how the addition of pads intensified things amongst the players.
Ahead of training camp, we had media sessions from safety Vonn Bell and rookie offensive guard Jackson Carman, both of whom gave us plenty to unpack. Both of those guys will make appearances on this list so we won’t go too much into detail there.
During practice itself, it was clear the receivers were trying to outdo each other and the cornerbacks were doing everything in their power to make sure the receivers didn’t have those jaw-dropping catches.
Let’s check out five players who stood out the most during the Bengals’ first padded practice of 2021 training camp. Whether these players did something on the practice field or made a key quote, we’re going to dive into why they’re players worth talking about after the fifth practice of camp.
Disclaimer — This doesn’t necessarily focus on the positive players from Tuesday’s camp. Players can stand out in a negative way too and we definitely had a few of those from the first padded practice of training camp.
