Source tells me Illinois linebacker Hardy Nickerson, Jr. is signing with the Bengals. Son of former Bucs great Hardy Nickerson. Reports of him signing with the Rams are false.
Bengals coach Marvin Lewis says it's important that Joe Mixon "understands the magnitude of what occurred, and as he moves forward in his NFL career, how he can distance himself from that one day." Says they have a plan in place and will draw on other teams' experience with players who entered the league under similar circumstances.
Like a lot of teams, the Bengals spent a great deal of time with Joe Mixon and came away believing he was a different guy than he was three years ago when he punched a female student in the face and got suspended for a year. They rated him a first-round talent and decided the risk was worth it in the middle of the second. We will have much more coverage on this as the night goes on. Obviously not an easy situation to discuss.
The Bengals get WR John Ross and his 4.22 speed. Ross can stretch the field and he has the lateral movement at the line to beat press-coverage. Think deep ball opportunities for the Bengals offense and the ability to create even more room for A.J. Green.
There are wide-ranging opinions on WR John Ross in talking to people in the NFL. The biggest concerns were with durability (knee and shoulder issues), but he's the premier big-play weapon in this draft.

It's clear Detroit sees Davis as the middle linebacker of the future, while Kenny Golladay has the build and athleticism to become a big-play threat.
Tedy Bruschi is looking forward to the Week 11 matchup between Seattle's linebackers and Atlanta's running backs.
Former Bengals star Chad Johnson, who became known for his post-TD antics, said that the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell recently sought his advice regarding the league's new rules on end zone celebrations.
