AFC North Notes: Bengals, Browns, Ravens



Geoff Hobson of writes that they would be a “surprise” if TE Tyler Eifert (back) is able to practice when training camp opens on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Bengals executive Duke Tobin said he is hopeful Eifert can recover.

Hopefully Tyler Eifert can come back and be a factor for us,” Tobin said. “I can’t predict the future on that one, but I can testify to the fact that he made a difference when he was up and running for us. We know what he can do if he can get back to that level. I know his full intent is to get back to that level. We’ll see if he can.”

For what it’s worth, Eifert tweeted on Monday that he was “feeling great” and looking forward to training camp.


  • Mike Silver of the NFL Network mentioned that there is “trepidation” within the organization regarding WR Josh Gordon being the centerpiece of the offense due to the problems he is dealing with.
  • According to Silver, Browns’ fourth-round WR Antonio Callaway has a chance to emerge as a top target in the offense.
  • As for former first-round WR Corey Coleman, Silver says the Browns’ coaching staff has not been impressed with him up to this point.
  • On Wednesday, Browns GM John Dorsey announced that they’re actually placing Gordon on the did not report list and not the non-football injury list as previously reported.


Former Ravens first-round WR Breshad Perriman is aware of the talk that he’s entering training camp on the roster bubble, but he says he has a higher standard for himself than what he’s shown up to this point.

“I know there is some negative stuff out there, and there is always going to be some negative people that want to bring you down,” Perriman said, via “I like they have a higher standard for me. I have a higher standard for myself than they have of me. I’m more pissed at me than they are when I drop a pass.”
