Former UC star QB Tony Pike trying to make Bengals

Tony Pike played his high school football at Cincinnati Reading. He continue his career in college at Cincinnati engineering Brian Kelly’s fast paced-offensive sets.

As the Bearcats quarterback, Pike threw for 5,018 yards and 49 touchdowns and was drafted in the 6th round of the 2010 draft by the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.

But things never panned out in down in Charlotte, home of the Panthers. They also drafted Notre Dame’s Jimmy Claussen and then Auburn’s Cam Newton.

So, with an overflow of quarterbacks and the fact that Pike had elbow problems, the Panthers waived him last August and gave him an injury settlement.

Last week, Pike found him back in his hometown of Cincinnati trying to earn a spot on the Bengals roster by going through the team’s rookie mini-camp.

Pike had a third operation on his throwing arm and spent last season rehabbing, he felt confident to accept the Bengals invitation for a tryout.

Bengals WR Simpson gets 15-day sentence


Jerome Simpson (file photo)

Judge Gregory Bartlett of Kenton County Circuit Court in Lexington, Kentucky, said on Thursday that he was very impressed with the testimony and letters sent to him on Jerome Simpson’s behalf. He said that the Bengals wide receiver appears to be “a good person” who had a “serious lapse in judgment.”

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was also sent a letter to Judge Bartlett in support of Simpson. He says the team is still open to offering him a new contract. Simpson currently is an unrestricted free agent.

Judge Bartlett reduced Simpson’s jail sentenced down from 30 days to 15 and also gave him three years’ probation on a drug-related charge.

Simpson pleaded guilty March 1 to the felony charge resulting from about 2 grams of marijuana shipped to his northern Kentucky home in September 2011. He was indicted on a felony charge of marijuana trafficking, but the plea seal changed the charge to a prohibited act relating to controlled substances which is also a felony.

Simpson was the Bengals second-round draft choice from Coastal Carolina in 2008, the 46th overall pick. He caught 53 passes for 758 yards and four touchdowns in 2011.

The University of Cincinnati football program’s two-year experiment of playing football games in an NFL stadium has not met the expected financial increase it was seeking.

Head football coach Butch Jones and athletic director Whit Babcock say that the players preferred playing on campus at 35,000-seat Nippert Stadium rather than traveling downtown to play in the Bengals 65,000-seat stadium.

The Bearcats played the Oklahoma game there in 2010 and two Big East games in 2011 at PBS trying to help them attract fans, recruits and profile the program better. Those games only attracted between 40,000 to 42,000 fans.
