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 | Expect To Be Players

Tue, 06 Feb 2001 20:51:22 -0800

Geoff Hobson reports for Bengals.com the Bengals plan to dive deep into the free agent waters when the free agency period srarts March 2. Bengals president Mike Brown thinks he can take advantage of other teams being "cap strapped" while the Bengals are in good shape cap-wise. Team insiders say it’s the most aggressive stance Brown has taken on the eve of free agency. The team's free agent needs are just like the NFL Drafr: a pass rusher, a run stuffer to team with Oliver Gibson, and a big, speedy WR to complement Darnay Scott and Peter Warrick. Depending on their own free agents re-signing or not, a backup QB and offensive linemen could be key as well.
