In Bengals news, Duke Tobin spoke to the media on Thursday. What did he have to say? Also, what might the Bengals do in the draft when it comes to the running back position?
Tobin, the team's Director of Player Personnel, addressed several different things during his media session on Thursday. He mentioned that there's no update on the Jonah Williams situation and that he and the rest of the organization views Williams as a valuable member of the team.
Tobin also touched on pending contract extensions, what the team plans to do in the draft, and plenty more. It'll be interesting to see what Tobin has up his sleeve in the draft and for the rest of the offseason.
The running back position needs to be addressed when the draft kicks off, as Joe Mixon is about to be overpaid and coming off a down year. Mixon will either be getting cut or taking less money but either way, the Bengals need a new option at running back. Who might they target in the draft?
