Bengals Bytes (6/7): Sam Hubbard is adjusting to life in the NFL More Randy Bullock Has Not Been Terrible for the Bengals Cincinnati Bengals fans have indeed been through the ringer as it relates to kickers. To start the 2016 season, longtime Bengals kicker Mike Nugent missed several crucial field goals. Before the Bengals cut him, Nugent kicked only 79%, and even worse in the 4th quarter. To fill the kicker void, the team signed veteran Randy Bullock.
Josh Malone squaring off with William Jackson at Bengals OTAs Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Josh Malone wants to emerge as a weapon for the offense in 2018.
The starting quarterback looked mobile enough at this stage moving laterally in this fun drill:
The 23-year-old pick also increased his touchdown total from six to nine in 2017, despite the fact that Chicago’s passing game ranked last in the NFL. And yet 98 running backs are making a higher average annual salary than Howard’s $647,006.
Why? Because of the collective bargaining agreement that makes no sense? Because somebody wanted to get their little win here vs. their little win over there? Get together and do what’s best for these players, and it’s about time that somebody stepped to the plate and realized that and [took] the politics out of it.
Per PFR, running back Alex Collins was the fourth-most-valuable member of the Baltimore Ravens in 2017. And it’s easy to see why, because the 23-year-old broke out and gave the Ravens offense some much-needed balance with a 4.6 yards-per-attempt average and 1,160 scrimmage yards in his first season with the team.
But Collins was handcuffed by his circumstances this offseason and was forced to return on a one-year exclusive-rights free-agent deal worth just $630,000.
That makes him the ninth-lowest-paid non-rookie on the Baltimore roster, so this is a no-brainer.
