Bengals' Lewis doesn't rule out bringing back Jermaine Gresham
by Shawn Krest |

Free agent tight end Jermaine Gresham may still return to the Bengals, coach Marvin Lewis said. 

Meeting with the media Tuesday, at the NFL Owners Meetings, Lewis said Gresham had been talking to defensive end Michael Johnson, who returned to the Bengals after spending a year in Tampa Bay. 

"I had a premonition that this would occur with Jermaine," Lewis said, per, "because Jermaine is a homebody and they all watched what happened with Michael."

"He’s a man of many, many, many, many, many, many, many moods," Lewis said. "But one he’s consistent with is, 'I’m loyal to you, coach.'"

by Shawn Krest |

AJ McCarron will be the Bengals' back-up quarterback at the start of 2015, Marvin Lewis told the media on Tuesday. 

In a media appearance at the NFL Owners Meetings, Lewis said that the team may bring back last year's number-two quarterback, Jason Campbell, but he said the job is McCarron's to lose.

"AJ McCarron has everything that you want in a quarterback, a successful quarterback in the NFL,' Lewis said, per "We’ll have some additions to the position that AJ will compete with and we just have to go forward that way."

Bengals owner Mike Brown still has confidence in Andy Dalton
by Sean d'Oliveira |

Bengals owner Mike Brown is confident the team has found a quality quarterback in Andy Dalton, reports

"Andy is a good quarterback," Brown said.

Along with the Bengals, Brown said other teams consider Dalton a quality quarterback as well and that he would benefit from good players around him.

"He is the style of guy who can function best when he has a good group around him," Brown said. "He needs that. Maybe he needs it more than some, but they all need it. There is no quarterback that goes out and has success without good players in the mix."

Bengals consider using franchise tag on A.J. Green as 'fallback' option
by Sean d'Oliveira |

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green can become a free agent after the 2015 season if no long-term deal can be worked out, but Bengals owner Mike Brown said they will consider using the franchise tag on the Pro Bowl wide receiver, reports

"It's a difficult test for us, but we do have the fallback if we need to of using the franchise tag," Brown said. "So, that's one option."

Brown added that it will be expensive to retain Green using the tag and they will have other potential free agents to lock up as well.

"We don't know yet where we are going to end up but we have tried to prepare ourselves for it some by holding back on cap expenditures this year which can be rolled over into next year," he said. "That will give us a little bit more potential to make deals."
