Bengals | Any Room For Me?

Thu, 12 Apr 2001 16:27:24 -0700

Geoff Hobson reports for Bengals.com Cincinnati Bengals DE John Copeland is wondering if there is any room for him along the team's defensive line. He figures he’s on the way out after the signing of fellow DE Kevin Henry. "Somebody has to go," said Copeland of a defensive line that has added players via free agency. The Bengals have added Henry and DT Tony Williams to a mix that already includes a group of 2000 starters in DE Vaughn Booker and DTs Oliver Gibson and Tom Barndt. Defensive coordinator Mark Duffner said it's too soon for Copeland to be thinking that way. Releasing Copeland before June 1 would save the club about $2.1 million under the salary cap.

Bengals | Team Notes

Wed, 11 Apr 2001 00:25:00 -0700

According to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, DE Kevin Henry officially signed his three-year contract with the team on Monday.

Sat, 07 Apr 2001 10:34:51 -0700

They are still in contact with DL Dana Stubblefield, who was released by the Redskins. The Bengals also are interested in free agent CBs DeRon Jenkins (San Diego), Walt Harris (Chicago) and Ronde Barber (Tampa Bay).

Bengals | More On Henry

Sat, 07 Apr 2001 02:48:06 -0700

Geoff Hobson reports for Bengals.com the appeal of working with his former defensive coordinator in Pittsburgh, Dick LeBeau, now the Bengals head coach helped bring free agent DE Kevin Henry to Cincinnati. LeBeau likes Henry’s versatility at playing both end and tackle, as can the Bengals incumbent starting DEs John Copeland and Vaughn Booker. LeBeau is looking at moving Booker to the end spot away from the tight end and putting Henry on the side of the tight end. Copeland had been ticketed to play away from the tight end. LeBeau said nothing is set in stone and there will be competition in training camp. Although no contract details were released, the deal figures to be a salary cap hit for this season of less than $1 million. That number allows the Bengals to continue to pursue free agent DT Dana Stubblefield, and it won’t cause the release of Copeland.
