The Athletic’s Paul Dehner Jr. thinks the Bengals should seriously consider pursuing a trade for Raiders G Gabe Jackson. In a hypothetical trade, Dehner Jr tosses out WR John Ross as someone that could be included in the deal.
Dehner also highlights Bears LB Nick Kwiatkoski and Cowboys LB Sean Lee as options the Bengals might find more appealing than shelling out $10-$12 million for Browns LB Joe Schobert.
ESPN’s Ben Baby confirms the Bengals are exploring the idea of signing RB Joe Mixon to an extension before the start of the regular season.
Asked about putting a significant investment in a running back, Bengals director of player personnel Duke Tobin responded: “You pay players. You pay individuals. And if they’re important to you, then they are guys you want to maintain, regardless of the position.”
