It's not exactly an attractive destination either, and to top it off the facilities are garbage.

Not exactly where i would want to go as a free agent, the Bengals would need to pay way over to get anyone there.

And players agents actively warn clients not to go there. Mike Brown has a negative rep around the league.

what big FAs have they attracted in recent years? i dont really follow the team and know
None. Picked up some 2nd tier players in years past the were good value, Tory James, Pac-Man, Dhani Jones and Cedric Benson were amongst the best. That’s a few years ago now though.
Cincy people hold out hope when Brown ’retires’ his daughter Katie who is CEO or whatever title they use might start to change things up but we’ll see.

Bengals selected LSU QB Joe Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Burrow
(6’3/221) is the fourth No. 1 overall pick in Bengals history, and the first since Carson Palmer in 2003. Coming off arguably the greatest quarterback season in college football history, Burrow set the FBS record for passing touchdowns (60) in his Heisman year for the Tigers. Burrow's blue chip accuracy, poise, and ability to read coverages led to the nation's second-best completion percentage (76%) since 1956. His arm strength is average for a first-round pocket passer, and he didn’t break out until he was a redshirt senior, but the rest of his profile remains unassailable. A former all-state high school basketball player, Burrow also flashed elusiveness with 24.5 rushing yards per game as an underrated scrambler, though he admittedly does most of his damage from the pocket. A 23-year-old rookie with elite mental makeup, Burrow will be a favorite for Rookie of the Year honors and should be the answer under center for years to come in Cincinnati.

I'm quietly confident the Bengals will do well next season, they lost what 6-7 games by a touchdown or less, they are getting a healthy AJ green back as well as (Fingers crossed) a generational QB and got him a decent weapon with their second pick.

Onward and upwards to hopefully a 8-10 win season and sneaking into the playoffs.

Not sure they will pass any of the others in the AFC North, maybe the Browns. But I am doubtful.

Maybe a season or 2 off IMO.

Bengals 10-6
Browns 9-7
Ravens 8-8
Steelers 6-10
I see the Ravens easily winning the AFC North.

The Steelers seem to have it over us, and lift when playing us.

yeah maybe I was to harsh on the Browns, they had a very good draft IMO.

If Lamar goes down or as i expect his play will drop (just like mahomes year after that first mvp) teams better equiped to thwart that offense too...ravens wont runaway with the div imo. Itll be tighter.

Browns should improve dramatically

And yeah ok bengals cant be imagined to compete so soon, 2021 more realistic, but i do think steelers are f’ed

GG.exe are players who miss their entire rookie campaign eligible for all rookie team selections the next year? Re; Jonah Williams?

Broken's got it. NFL sticks true to the "rookie" nature of the award, unlike the NBA or the AFL

Also, it goes without saying that an OL would never win OROY
That's why I said all rookie selection, dumbass. 😜

Was having a look at some odds on player markets and was wondering if Williams fell into the unlisted player category for all rookie team selection.
