Bengals try out several free agent players

Just like most NFL teams during their bye week, the Cincinnati Bengals have brought in several players for tryouts to see if they can pick up a valuable addition for the final 11 games of the season.

The Bengals tried out former Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas according to several sources.

Adalius Thomas (NFL)

Thomas played for Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis while he was the defensive coordinator in Baltimore under Brian Billick.

Thomas was cut during the spring by the Patriots.

Cincinnati has also worked out wide receivers Michael Clayton and James Hardy, safety Al Afalava, defensive tackle Dre Moore, center Nick Leckey and nose guard Tank Tyler.

The Bengals also received visits from Deon Anderson, a fullback and Ko Simpson a safety.

Browns trade Harrison to Eagles for Bell

All last week there were reports out of Cleveland that running back Jerome Harrison was not in head coach Eric Mangini’s doghouse. But now Harrison is not even playing in Cleveland.

In a swap of disappointing running backs, Cleveland gets Mike Bell and Philadelphia gets Jerome Harrison.

Mike Bell (NFL)

Philadelphia needs a running back who can work on the outside and catch the football. Harrison makes a lot of sense as LeSean McCoy’s backup in that regard.

Harrison has shown in the past that he can produce and be explosive when given a chance.

In Mike Bell, Cleveland is getting another power running back to play behind Peyton Hillis. But Bell is also a running back that three teams have given up since 2007 (Denver, New Orleans & Philadelphia). The Browns think he’ll fit right into their plans.

Browns fall to Falcons, 20-10; lose two QB’s in process

The Cleveland Browns lost another close game and two quarterbacks in the process.

The Browns are probably glad to see Atlanta Falcons pass rusher John Abraham leave Cleveland, Ohio.

Abraham and the Falcons defense left one Browns running back leaving the game on Sunday with a bum leg and left their Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Joe Thomas wondering if he can ever block again.

Abraham just couldn’t be blocked away from quarterbacks Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme and running back Peyton Hillis.

All told, Abraham had a solid game with two sacks, three tackles for a loss and three quarterback hurries.

The Browns running game was stopped in its tracks. Hillis gained 28 yards on 10 carries and backup Jerome Harrison had 6 yards on 6 carries.

With Wallace and Delhomme hurting, head coach Eric Mangini is reluctant to start rookie quarterback Colt McCoy against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense this Sunday.

Bengals have meltdown in final 3 minutes in loss to Tampa Bay


CINCINNATI, OHIO — Mostly everybody in the Paul Brown Stadium pressbox on Sunday afternoon, couldn’t believe their eyes.

Two interceptions of Carson Palmer passes basically gave the game away.

The result was a 24-21 loss as Tampa Bay’s placekicker Connor Barth connected on a 31-yard field goal with one second remaining to win the game.

As a result, Cincinnati is sitting in a tight spot heading to the bye week with a disappointing record of 2-3.

The loss is the sixth straight to the Buccaneers by the Bengals. Speaking of the Bucs, they are 3-1 and have equalled their win total from 2009.

Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman, eventhough he just throws the ball up for grab, looked better than Carson Palmer. He was 20 of 33 for 280 yards with a TD and an interception.

After the bye week, the schedule gets tougher for Cincinnati. At Atlanta and then its the Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts.

Head Coach Marvin Lewis in his postgame press conference said, ” We have to drop the egos and get back to work. Bring your shovel and go to work. Quit worrying about who you are.”

Seahawks acquire Marshawn Lynch to help anemic running attack

The Seattle Seahawks run game has struggled through four games, ranking 27th with 79.5 yards per game. In three games, Seattle was held below 80 yards rushing, which put pressure on quarterback Matt Hasselback to throw the ball down the field.

Without a clear-cut number 1 running back, Seattle ran by committee with Justin Forsett and Julius Jones. Forsett had a season-high 19 carries and 65 yards Sunday against St. Louis.

Jones restructured his contract and took a big cut in pay before the season to return to Seattle. He carried the ball just 12 times for 30 yards all season and was inactive Sunday against St. Louis.

RB Marshawn Lynch (NFL)

To correct the ineffectiveness, the Seahawks engineered a trade with the rebuilding Buffalo Bills and have brought in Marshawn Lynch for a pair of undisclosed draft picks.

Seattle in the meantime have released Julius Jones, its leading rusher the past two years, to open up a roster spot for Lynch.

The Seahawks haven’t had a running back obtain a 1,000 yards since Shaun Alexander in 2005 when he was the NFL MVP.

Now Forsett and Lynch, Pac-10 teammates at California, are reunited in the Pac-10 city of Seattle. Lynch was a groomsman at Forsett’s wedding earlier in 2010.

The 2-2 Seahawks have a bye week this coming Sunday. They will not play again until October 17 at Chicago. So Lynch will be able to familiarize himself with the Seattle offensive playbook for the next 12 days.
