  • According to Michael Lombardi, the Bengals have fielded several calls for slot receiver Alex Erickson and has turned down all offers.
  • Lombardi mentions that if the Bengals are unwilling to move Erickson, they probably won’t trade A.J. Green either. 
  • Lombardi believes Bengals QB Andy Dalton has some trade value and it’s possible Cincininat could get “significant value” for him. However, he doubts Bengals’ ownership will shake up the roster like this. 
  • Regarding TE Tyler Eifert, Lombardi thinks he could be the one player traded, likely for a low-round pick. 
  • The Bengals officially ruled out CB Darqueze Dennard (hamstring), T Cordy Glenn (concussion), WR A.J. Green (ankle), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (knee), and DE Carl Lawson (hamstring) and list G John Miller (groin) and T Andre Smith (ankle) as questionable.



  • Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic writes that it’s no secret the Ravens would like to acquire pass-rush help before the upcoming deadline. However, Zrebiec mentions that it won’t easy, considering that Baltimore has just $2 million of cap room to work with. 
  • Beyond that, the Ravens have limited mid-to-late round draft picks to trade including just two fourth rounders and one fifth. Although the Ravens could always include 2021 picks if need be. 
  • Zrebiec breaks down a number of speculative trade options for the Ravens including Shaquil Barrett, Vic Beasley, Carlos Dunlap, Terrell Suggs, Leonard Williams, and Derek Wolfe among others.
