Sun, 22 Apr 2001 20:43:57 -0700

Geoff Hobson reports for Bengals.com the one position the Cincinnati Bengals did not address in the NFL Draft was left tackle.

Jones, who reported last week about 30 pounds lighter than he played at last season, is expected to compete with John Jackson at left tackle.
