Marvin Lewis: 'No problem with Andy Dalton as our quarterback'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Bengals are sticking with Andy Dalton at quarterback and have no plans to bring in competition. But coach Marvin Lewis didn't exactly give Dalton a ringing endorsement.

Noting Dalton, Carson Palmer and Jon Kitna have started all but 12 of his 198 games as Cincy's coach, Lewis said he prefers the status quo.

“Fortunately, somehow I’ve got the right little thing on my shoulder that says, ‘Don’t get into a quarterback controversy,’” Lewis told the team's website. “That’s worked from Jon to Carson to Andy. It’s helped us have the success we’ve had and those guys have been good players, productive players. Even when they’ve left out of here they’ve been productive. It works.

“We have no problem with Andy Dalton as our quarterback. We don’t have time to waste time with another QB. To not continue to press forward and get Andy better and to get whoever the backup quarterbacks are better. The quarterback competition. Where has it worked? It doesn’t get you wins.”

The team hopes to re-sign Jason Campbell as Dalton's backup.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict no lock for start of season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who's had two knee surgeries since late October, might not be ready for the start of the 2015 season, reports the team's website. The plan is for Burfict to be back, but "there has been some concern" he'll start the season on the PUP list and miss the first six weeks, the report said.

“He has to work his tail off. He has to work harder now than he did to get here,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “Everyone in his inner circle has continued to reinforce that. He has to work harder now than he did to get here.”

Burfict had 29 tackles and a forced fumble in five games this season. He had 298 combined tackles and four sacks in the previous two years.

Report: Bengals blocking Vance Joseph from Broncos, 49ers
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Broncos and 49ers are eager to hire Bengals secondary coach Vance Joseph for bigger jobs, but so far Cincinnati has denied permission for Joseph to interview with those teams, reports the Denver Post.

San Fran wants Joseph to be its defensive coordinator and assistant head coach, while Denver would hire Joseph as DC, the paper said. Joseph got his first NFL coaching job with the 49ers in 2005, and he worked with new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak in Houston from 2011-13, coaching defensive backs.

Bengals owner Mike Brown told Fox Sports on Tuesday he wants to speak with Joseph before deciding whether to release the assistant coach from his contract. It wasn't clear when that conversation would take place.

DE Robert Geathers might not be back with Bengals
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bengals defensive end Robert Geathers, the team's longest-tenured player, admitted he might not be back with Cincy in 2015, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. Geathers, 31, recorded just one sack this season.

He has one year left on his deal, and the team would save more than $3 million by releasing him. Geathers, who has spent his entire 11-year career with the Bengals, has totaled 34 sacks, six forced fumbles and three interceptions.

Bengals' Vance Joseph is a top candidate to become Broncos DC
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Broncos continue to have strong interest in Bengals secondary coach Vance Joseph becoming the team's defensive coordinator. However, as of Tuesday morning, the Bengals have not granted Joseph permission to take the job, according to FOX Sports.

Bengals owner Mike Brown told FOX Sports at the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., he wanted to speak with Joseph before deciding if he will be released from his contract. Brown said he doesn’t have a definitive timetable to meet with Joseph.

Joseph interviewed to be the Broncos' coach last week before Denver opted to hire Gary Kubiak for the position. Joseph was Houston’s secondary coach from 2011-13, when Kubiak was the Texans' coach.

CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported Friday Joseph would be a top candidate to be Denver's defensive coordinator under Kubiak, who was considered the favorite to replace John Fox before officially getting the job Monday.
