Are the Cincinnati Bengals done in free agency


The Bengals had a good week. Almost.

Prior to the final moments of the Friday news dump when Vontaze Burfict suspension news made its annual pilgrimage into the Bengals’ news cycle, the team couldn’t have drawn up a much better free agency opening.

Toss in a homecoming for the leading tackler in the NFL last season in 25-year-old Northwest High School product Preston Brown on a one-year contract, and you have a small, but effective haul.

Robinson and Davis should prove to be considerably impactful as they will replace P.J. Williams and Manti Te’o as starters, respectfully. Robinson was a premier slot corner with the Philadelphia Eagles last year, and his second stint with the Saints should go smoother than the last since he’ll be surrounded by Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley on the boundary.

Davis was the league’s 25th-best inside linebacker in 2017, per B/R NFL1000 scout Jerod Brown, finishing with great run defense and tackling grades. Te’o ranked 50th. Sometimes removing a bad starter for an average player can do wonders for a unit, and that should be the case.

His candidacy took a hit Tuesday afternoon when the makings of a good relief outing didn’t end well in an 8-3 Yankees loss to the Detroit Tigers.

Heller allowed three fourth-inning runs in a 1 2/3-inning outing that began with the 6-foot-3, 205 pounder getting the final out of the second and then working a scoreless third.

Others contending for the Yankees’ final roster spot include Got Cheap Jerseys reliever Jonathan Holder, starting pitcher Domingo German and first baseman Tyler Austin.

Heller wasn’t down after his outing.

Hill was 23 of 33 for 350 yards and did all his scoring damage in the first half when the Lions (4-0), who won their first six games in 1996, opened a 38-0 lead. The win was Columbia’s largest since beating Princeton 42-14 in 2010.

Lanning completed 2 of 3 passes for 25 yards and carried Cheap Jerseys the ball nine times for 35 yards in Iowa State’s 38-31 win. He also threw a key block that allowed David Montgomery to spring loose for a 46-yard reception off a screen play, in which Montgomery reversed field.

On defense, Lanning had eight tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.

“It was fun,” Lanning said. “Coming into an atmosphere like this, you can’t Hockey Jerseys Cheap ask for anything better, especially playing both ways. … I can’t say enough about my teammates and what they did to help me out. It was a lot of stuff going on for me. I didn’t have my best game defensively, but we got the win.”

Lanning played quarterback last season before transitioning to inside linebacker during the offseason after Park won the job.

Entering Saturday’s game, he was second in the Big 12 with 46 tackles.

As he continues to tinker with his team’s lineup — the Demers acquisition was the 17th personnel addition the Coyotes made this offseason — Chayka realizes that a GM’s job doesn’t cease once the season begins. Even on this night, a meaningless preseason game, he continued to analyze Arizona’s every move and figure out ways the players could improve.

“I think you always try to find something to work on. The reality is a lot of times the end result might work out, but the process isn’t what you’d like it to be,” Chayka said. “Sometimes that’s hockey. Sometimes guys make the wrong play, but they’re skilled enough to get away with it.”
