I suppose the extra $4 million from 1st Round to 3rd Round is of no issue to him.

 

Maybe he thinks playing with Burrow is going to eventually earn him a Justin Jefferson type deal here or somewhere else. 

 

After all, the last 2 WRs to star alongside Burrow are about to be the two highest paid non QBs in NFL history back to back.

 

So on a long term basis it likely beats chasing down wounded ducks thrown by Zach Wilson with a better rookie contract.

^ Giving Browning starter reps during the week is going to give the Bengals the best QB room in the league.

 

It's a luxury in today's league to have a backup who is also capable of winning the game for you if need be and the Bengals made the right move by holding on to him.

I don’t pay for goodberry x info. I know joe wasn’t wearing his arm band he been wearing. I just hope he just chillin till week 1. Just thinking what drills can you do without throwing football. Also what’s point of practicing if you don’t throw for wr and QBs. They just worked on blocking

Thought this was interesting re: WR group. Lap does a podcast and this one is with Troy Walters. 

Just watching (he discusses each guy briefly, starting at about the 25-minute mark), he seems really high on Iosivas (i.e., he can challenge for a starting job) and seemed kinda lukewarm on Charlie Jones. Just my perception, anyway.

One hell of a statement indeed!

^ Give me 5 wide shotgun ... 4 WR bunch to the right with Tee, Burton, Yoshi, and Gesicki ... And Ja'Marr by himself on the left side. 

 

Good luck double covering Uno then. Burrow would feast all day.

Going off of the Troy Walters comments, if the season started right now the WR group would likely be ranked:

 

1) Chase - duh

2) Higgins - Since he is almost exclusively an outside WR, I don't think reporting late should affect him much at all.

3) Iosivas - Bigger/stronger/faster. Running routes better. Has improved his short area quickness, but could help much in the slot? Doubtful. If Iosivas ends up being WR3, then Chase would likely be the one in the slot. Became a productive special teams player as a rookie.

4) Burton - Still learning everything since it's so early in the summer. Hands and speed are as advertised. Guess we will see if he can make a jump in training camp. The problem is that he's better outside than in the slot. If it comes down to Iosivas/Burton for most snaps, it might come down to who provides the most value in the slot.

5) Irwin - Walters says he produces when his number gets called. But usually it takes an injury to get his number called. 

6) CJones - If he can provide value in the slot in a way that Iosivas/Burton cannot, then his snap count will increase. Has special teams value.

 

---------PRACTICE SQUAD HOPEFULS

 Shedrick Jackson - Provided some value as an UDFA rookie. 

Kendric Pryor - Back with the Bengals after some time with the Jags.

Lassiter - Walters seems to like him.

Cole Burgess - After playing at Cortland, no one thinks he's ready for a roster spot now. But he might end up on the PS as a developmental project. Talent is there.

If the Oline can hold up

 

If Trent Brown and Mims can play, and no one gets hurt, they might be OK. If both RTs are healthy and look capable I'd be ready to move Brown in at LT should OBjr stink it up again.  Unfortunately I think the team will do the Bengals thing and play him either way because he's getting paid a lot and they're still hyping him up like he's awesome.

 

An injury anywhere on the IOL and the wheels come off.
