NFL Notes: Bengals, Colts, Saints



An NFL source tells Tom Pelissero of NFL Media that new Bengals OC Bill Lazor will likely include more zone read in the team’s offensive attack and try to get Andy Dalton rolling out more.

“He’ll run some more zone read,” the source said of Lazor. “I think he’ll get Andy out of the pocket more, which I think is smart. Andy’s a good thrower on the run, and [he has] above-average mobility for this league. It’s a little bit more what Hue (Jackson, Zampese’s predecessor and current Browns coach) did — gave him some simple reads, simple throws. And at the end of the day, they’ve got to take more shots to A.J. (Green).


Veteran RB Frank Gore said he would still do it all over again and sign with the Colts, even after things haven’t gone as many expected the past few years.

“If I had to do it again, I still would make the same decision,” Gore said, via the Indianapolis Star. “Things just didn’t go our way the last two years, starting with our leader. He got hurt. I’ve played with, what, five quarterbacks?”

As for possibly retiring after this season, Gore said he plans to take a wait-and-see approach.

I will really think about how I feel after the season and how I feel I played this year,” Gore said. “If I feel good, a team wants me and I wanna play? Then I’ll play. But if I can’t do it no more, I won’t do it no more.”


  • Nick Underhill would not be surprised to see the Saints re-sign recently released DL Kendall Langford or DE Darryl Tapp next week.
  • Underhill adds that depending on how their roster situation is for Week 4’s game against the Dolphins in England, DBs Justin Hardee and Arthur Maulet, who were promoted on Saturday, could possibly be waived and return to their practice squad.
