Joe Mixon has slimmed down to 218 pounds.

That's 12 pounds lighter than he was last season. "I feel real good," said Mixon. "I feel like I’m in really good shape." The former Oklahoma Sooner took his lumps as a rookie, averaging a mere 3.5 yards per carry. However, he fared significantly better down the stretch (5.0 yards per attempt over his final four games) and will enter the 2018 campaign as Cincinnati's clear workhorse. He's being drafted as an upside-RB2 in most formats.

Former first-round OT Cedric Ogbuehi said he feels more comfortable playing right tackle and has his confidence back heading into 2018.

The No. 21 overall pick in the 2015 draft, Ogbuehi played left tackle his first three years in the league before the Bengals made the move to acquire LT Cordy Glenn from the Bills this offseason. That puts Ogbuehi in a competition on the right side, a battle he is "excited" about after playing the right side early in his career at Texas A&M. Ogbuehi needs to rebound in a contract year.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis expects third round DE Sam Hubbard to have a role in sub packages.

Hubbard was one of Cincy's offseason standouts. He led all edge defenders in Wonderlic scores, so it's not surprising he's off to a fast start. Hubbard should see heavy rookie-year snaps in the Bengals' line rotation.

A.J. Green said he's "comfortable" with his current contract.

Green was, at one point, the highest-paid receiver in football. He's since fallen to sixth on that list behind the likes of Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins and Jarvis Landry. Green is probably due for a raise, though the 29-year-old isn't worried about his contract status. "At the end of the day I just want to play football," said the seven-time Pro Bowler. "I got my contract. I’m set for life. Now I can just go out there and play." Green's contract expires after 2019.

Bengals signed third-round LB Malik Jefferson to a four-year contract.

Experienced at both middle and weak-side linebacker, Jefferson is a height-weight-speed prospect with Jekyll & Hyde tape; he missed too many tackles, struggled in pass coverage and should have been more dominant than he was in college with 89th-percentile SPARQ athleticism and 4.52 speed. Ultimately, Jefferson profiles as a boom-bust prospect for the Bengals.

Bengals signed third-round DE Sam Hubbard to a four-year contract.

The Bengals' entire draft class is now under contract. PFF College credited Hubbard with 48 QB pressures in 2017, fifth most in this year’s class. Before becoming a star pass rusher at Ohio State, Hubbard played safety in high school and at one point committed to play lacrosse at Notre Dame. An underrated athlete despite his 4.96 forty time, Hubbard posted above-par 53rd-percentile SPARQ results in Indy and won with a relentless motor in the Big Ten. He also led all edge defenders in Wonderlic score (35). Long term, Hubbard profiles on the John Simon-Clay Matthews spectrum.

Bengals first-round C Billy Price has been cleared from his pectoral injury.

Price suffered a partially torn pectoral while participating in the bench press event at the Combine. He said he was "way ahead of schedule" after the draft, and he has been cleared with weeks to spare before training camp. Price should open the season as the Bengals' starter at center.

The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner singled out seventh-round WR Auden Tate as one of the most impressive players at Bengals OTAs and minicamp.

Tate is massive at 6'5/228 but proved to be a subpar athlete with 4.68 speed and a 31-inch vertical at the Combine, leading to him tumbling to the seventh round. However, his size and "high-pointing ability" has made him a standout this spring, according to Dehner. "He hit points in the sky where he was catching a ball where just guys can't really get there," Dehner said. The Bengals are starving for wideout production behind A.J. Green. Tate will have to do it when pads come on.

Bengals RT Jake Fisher has been cleared to practice.

Fisher had surgery in February to correct an irregular heartbeat. He'll require checkups but looks to be fully healthy. Fisher is competing with Bobby Hart and Cedric Ogbuehi for the Bengals' right tackle job.

Coach Marvin Lewis hinted Tyler Eifert (back) may not be ready for training camp.

When asked, Lewis said he simply does not know if the oft-injured Eifert will be ready. He was limited at OTAs last month but has sat out all of minicamp this week and may have suffered a setback. Anything the Bengals get from Eifert this year will have to be considered a bonus. Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah are his backups.

Bengals seventh-round QB Logan Woodside was arrested for speeding and DUI Saturday in Bellevue, Ky.

Woodside was the 249th overall pick in April's draft. He was booked by police at 3:46 AM over the weekend and blew a .112 blood-alcohol content. Woodside was speeding in a parking lot shortly before the time of his arrest. The former Toledo signal-caller is one of four QBs on the Bengals' roster.

Marvin Lewis was vague on Tyler Eifert's health after he missed Tuesday's minicamp session.

Per reporter Jim Owczarski, Lewis was "surprised" at Eifert's absence. "As time goes on when we start to play football then we will have an idea of where he is," Lewis said afterward. Eifert claimed he was back to full health in March, but he was limited in last month's OTAs sessions. One of the league's least-durable players, Eifert has appeared in 24-of-64 possible games over the past four years.
Jun 12 - 4:56 PM

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap claims his absence from voluntary OTAs, which cost him a $300,000 bonus, was not about his contract.

Dunlap said he "wanted to remain working out in Florida and it was not related to the contract." That doesn't pass the smell test, especially since Dunlap added the sides have made progress on an extension as he heads into the final year of his deal. Coming off a 7.5-sack campaign, 2018 will be Dunlap's age-29 season.

Second-year WR Josh Malone hopes to force his way into the Bengals' rotation this season.

"That’s definitely my mentality," Malone said. "Of course, I want more this year and want to have more of an impact this year than last year." The No. 128 overall pick of last year's draft, Malone made seven "starts," but played just 247 snaps on offense. He caught six passes for 63 yards and one touchdown. If he's going to carve out a 2018 role, it will be with his prodigious long speed.
Jun 5 - 6:35 PM

Tyler Eifert (back) was limited at OTAs last week.

He was reportedly moving at "half speed" and didn't participate in 11-on-11 drills. Back surgery limited Eifert to just two games last year, though the tight end plans to be a full go for training camp. "I'm on schedule," he said. "I don’t want to go out there and have any setbacks or anything, so just methodically moving forward." Eifert has always been a big red-zone presence, but his durability remains a major concern for fantasy owners.
