In Bengals news, the NFL Combine is currently underway in Indianapolis! Also, Taylor Lewan said that the Cincinnati Bengals could be a potential destination for him after he was released by the Titans.
The Combine presents draft prospects with an opportunity to show what they can do in various drills. Previously, we've been treated with some great moments, including Joe Burrow's "tiny hands" assessment where he joked that he'd be better off retiring.
As for Lewan, he announced his release on his podcast and later on named Cincinnati as a potential destination for him. He had previously said that he wouldn't rule out retirement either.
Lewan is a good starter when he's healthy but that's the problem -- He's rarely healthy these days. He hasn't played a fully healthy season since 2017 and appeared in just two games last year. The Bengals shouldn't take the risk here unless they can get him for a cheap price.
