Bengals HC Marvin Lewis Could Make Most Roster Cuts Now
Don't expect a lot of surprises on HBO's "Hard Knocks" this season. The Cincinnati Bengals upgraded a roster wich was already of playoff caliber this offseason and most positions appear set. While every team longs for that kind of stability, it does not make for a very competitive or exciting training camp. Head coach Marvin Lewis told Paul Dehner of the Cincinnati Enquirer, "If I cut the football team right now, I could probably cut it to 56. Hopefully it’s more like 60 and those guys can start proving that next Thursday night.”
“In a lot of spots we do have competition and we’ve got some depth,” Lewis said. “Knock on wood that continues to be the opportunity we have to evaluate. We have some spots where we have that, but guys have to go prove it.” Thus far the Bengals have not been hit by the injury bug raging through the NFL. Fringe players desperately try to play their way onto rosters during preseason games but, with the Bengals' starting lineup almost completely set, guys might want to look for opportunities in places other than Cincinnati.
