In Bengals news, newly-acquired Chris Lammons has some baggage. Also in Bengals news, Zac Taylor is committed to this organization but we already knew that, didn't we?
The Bengals claimed Lammons off waivers after the Chiefs tried to be sneaky. Lammons had led KC in special teams snaps during the regular season and Cincinnati likely claimed him so that the Chiefs couldn't re-claim him ahead of their AFC Championship Game.
Well, maybe this move wasn't that great in the grand scheme of things, as Lammons was indicted in a 2022 battery charge along with Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said that he doesn't plan to leave Cincinnati and if people want him to leave, it'd have to be in a casket. All righty then.
