Dwight Freeney one of best available

As he showed last season, the 36-year-old still has something left in the tank. The Bengals and Falcons are rightfully taking a closer look at Freeney. Best remaining FAs

How will Ogbuehi, Fisher get on the field?

Cincinnati's top two picks in 2015 -- OLs Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher -- basically redshirted as rookies. Will the Bengals find a way to get them playing time in Year 2? Upcoming decisions (Insider)

After the two Bengals rookie signings today, it appears visiting vet edge-rusher Dwight Freeney will be leaving Cincinnati without a contract. ESPN's Jim Trotter reported he's heading to Atlanta for a visit next week.

Bengals today announce they have signed fourth-round pick DT Andrew Billings (now only first-round pick William Jackson III remains unsigned). They also signed rookie free agent FB Andrew Bonnet (North Dakota State) and released K Jonathan Brown, who will revert to their IR if he clears waivers. Brown has a turf toe injury on his kicking foot.

Bengals QB McCarron, wife, welcome baby boy

Bengals quarterback AJ McCarron and his wife, Katherine, have added a new member to their family, welcoming a baby boy named Tripp on Tuesday.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

AJ McCarron and his Sports Illustrated model wife, the former Katherine Webb, have just had their first baby. According to tweets from AJ and his mother Dee Dee, Tripp McCarron was born Tuesday. AJ mentioned earlier this month that he comes from a family of bigger babies. So it was no surprise he called Tripp "long" in the tweet announcing his birth. Class of 2034 Alabama recruit?

How's this for brutal honesty? Bengals CB Adam Jones on what could help Cincy in the playoffs: "We need a f'n bye." Jones likes this year's team, and was encouraged today by the sight of something that also happened on Day 1 of OTAs last year. For the second straight May, A.J. Green burned past him for a catch. Let's see if the Bengals in 2016 can do better than 12-4 and a wild-card exit, though.

Among those missing from Day 1 of Bengals OTAs: AJ McCarron (baby due soon), Tyler Eifert, Rey Maualuga and Jeff Luc. H-back Ryan Hewitt and OT Cedric Ogbuehi are present but not practicing. James Wright (knee recovery), Brandon Thompson (ACL recovery), DyShawn Mobley all working out on the side.

Bengals CBs Dre Kirkpatrick and Darqueze Dennard are returning from shoulder injuries and are present and working out.

Correction from earlier. Vontaze Burfict is practicing for the Bengals today. Just wasn't in uniform during early walkthrough.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Vontaze Burfict is among the Bengals who are present, but isn't practicing. Actually just "ran" the ball in a walkthrough drill. Looks fine.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bengals are back to work. Day 1 of OTAs is beginning in Cincinnati.
