Bengals release CB Dre Kirkpatrick

Recommended Posts

Not sure why they are so confident they will be able to trade guys everyone assumes they are going to release.  I think at this point we'll hold onto Dalton at least through the draft and see if anyone is desperate, but I doubt we get anything for him at this point.

Expected.  They had no reason to be in a hurry about it though.  I'm sure he'll find work.  He does pretty good work as a cover corner.  He's just getting up there in years, and avoids tackling like the coronavirus.

With talk of a shortened NFL season, I would assume that means cancelled or shortened OTAs and preseason. I would assume we hold onto Andy at this point. May even start him the first half of the season.

Lol. I agree. But with Burrow having no OTAs, limited practice, and preseason, I’m not sure if throwing Burrow to the wolves is the best option.

Andy did it. I’m sure Burrow will be fine

I would be fine with Trading Dalton for a pick swap to trade back into the 3rd or 4th round...

I wouldn't make that assumption.  Not without a restructured deal.  The Brown family does not like overpaying, and 17M for a backup QB is overpaying.

His day is coming.  The Bengals are just waiting for the right opportunity.

Andy had an entire offseason to prepare. Burrow is going to have no rookie camps, limited if any OTAs and likely an abbreviated preseason. While Burrow is significantly more talented than Andy, let’s not pretend their off seasons will be anything alike.

Theoretically it’s not ideal because you’d like your QB to be prepared heading into the season, but what is the tangible downside of throwing Joe “to the wolves”? I’m not sure I believe in the sentiment that doing so stunts a QBs growth or hurts his confidence moving forward. Nor do I think there’s any evidence to support that. As long as he understands the playbook, the rest (chemistry, experiencing/learning defenses, etc.) he can learn on the fly as the season progresses. It’s not like we’re expected to make a run this season anyway. The sooner he takes his rookie lumps the better.

No he didn't, at least with the team.  The lockout was that year, and I can tell you the exact dates it started and ended....  It started my birthday (3/12) and ended on my sister's birthday (7/25).  Weird, right?

I was going to post the same thing.  Their offseasons are going to be very similar.

I also agree with this.  He needs to play to learn, so get him out there.  Throwing Andy out there just prolongs his learning experience.  FWIW, i was fine with what they did with Carson back in the day.  And i somewhat believed in it.  But seeing the rookies lately come into the league and make an impact, i've reversed course on that sentiment.  I believe it's better to just get the guy out there so he can help and learn at the same time.
