In Bengals news, Ken Anderson did not advance in the Pro Football Hall of Fame voting. Also, could the Cincinnati Bengals add another running back before the regular season?

Anderson was the quarterback of the Bengals for the entirety of his 16-year career. He leads the franchise in passing yards with 32,838 and threw 197 touchdowns. In 1981, the first time the Bengals reached a Super Bowl, Anderson won the MVP award with 3,754 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.

Bringing it back to present day Bengals football, the team continues to be linked to big name running backs on the market despite still having Joe Mixon as their starter. The depth behind him isn't great so perhaps that's why, as the Bengals have Chase Brown, Chris Evans, and Trayveon Williams competing for the other spots on the RB depth chart.

Here's what's trending in Bengals news.

"On Wednesday, the HOF committee announced three senior semifinalists for the 2024 class, essentially the final step toward induction for senior nominees, but Anderson was not included.

Instead, the senior nominees were Randy Gradishar, Steve McMichael, and Art Powell."

Benjamin linked two different running backs to the Bengals in this article: Cordarrelle Patterson and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. While the run game hasn't looked great in the preseason, the Bengals offensive starters haven't taken a single snap so it's hard to really know what this group is truly capable of just yet.
