A lot of talent being kept off the field

Tom Brady isn't the only notable player who will begin the season as a spectator due to suspension. This group of eight is set to miss 51 combined games for various violations.


Can the Bengals break through?

Cincinnati is one of only four teams to make the playoffs in each of the last five years, but a victory remains elusive. Dan Graziano explores whether that can change this year.


What to expect from the Ravens

Baltimore is usually a staple in the postseason, but the Ravens missed the playoffs last year for second time in three seasons. Could it happen again in 2016 amid a tough AFC North? Dan Graziano answers.

A.J. Green maximized his value

Carlos Dunlap is an absolute bargain

The good news: Dunlap tallied 13.5 sacks in 2015. The better news: Cincinnati has the 27-year-old under contract for three more seasons at less than $6 million per year. Friendly contracts (Insider)

Lewis excelled as a pass-rusher

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis recorded 11 sacks in two seasons from 1978-79 and was a second-team All-Big Sky player at Idaho State as a sophomore and junior. His college stats earned him the No. 15 spot on our list. Ranking all 32 coaches as players

The Bengals will return to practice July 29 for the start of several preseason practices that will be open to the public. The practices include August 10-11 joint sessions with the Minnesota Vikings in Cincinnati. Practices will generally begin at 3 p.m. ET each day, with gates to the practice fields adjacent to Paul Brown Stadium open at 2:30.


Signing RG III: Deft or desperate?

If Robert Griffin III finds his rookie form, it could shake up the AFC North a bit. But that's an awfully big if, as Dan Graziano discusses.
