With Nick Mangold's pending release, I believe there are only 11 players out of the 255 drafted in 2006 still with the team that drafted them: Chad Greenway (Vikings), Tamba Hali (Chiefs), Marcedes Lewis (Jaguars), Andrew Whitworth (Bengals), Jahri Evans (Saints), Stephen Gostkowski (Patriots), Domata Peko (Bengals), Kyle Williams (Bills), Kedric Golston (Redskins), Sam Koch (Ravens), Zach Strief (Saints). With many of these players about to be free agents, or even retire, that number could dwindle even more come March.

Bengals should sign Pierre-Paul

The Bengals are signing CB Bene' Benwikere to a one-year deal, according to his agent Bardia Ghahremani. He chose the Bengals over several teams after visiting yesterday. He could be a CB that plays either outside or inside and compete for a starting spot with the secondary situation in-flux. Tom Pelissero first reported the news.

Adam Jones could use a change of scenery

Cornerbacks rarely continue to play at a high level past their mid-30s, and Jones, who was recently arrested, has a history of off-the-field issues and could fall under the league's personal conduct policy, potentially resulting in a suspension this season.
