NFL Notes: Bengals, Giants, Redskins, & Patriots



According to Bengals RB Jeremy Hill, Cincinnati will employ a “balanced attack” rushing attack next year.

“Obviously there’s going to be a balanced attack,” Hill said, via Coley Harvey of “I don’t think he’s got to wear either one of us out, so that way we can make it through all 16 games for a playoff push.


  • Dan Graziano writes that the Giants expect “big things” from TE Larry Donnell in 2015 and believe he could turn into a start this season.


  • John Keim of ESPN suggests three areas of improvement for the Redskins if they are to make the playoffs including: 1) Improved defense, 2) Establish an offensive identity, and 3) Improved quarterback play.
  • As far as players to watch out for this summer, Keim mentions LB Will Compton, DL Ricky Jean Francois, LB Trevardo Williams and possibly C Austin Reiter.
  • Keim mentions that there really aren’t many good options available at tight end if Washington wanted to boost their depth at the position.


  • Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston has gotten the sense from Patriots’ coaches that if they have to turn to QB Jimmy Garoppolo early in the season, they would still be competitive.
  • Reiss writes that CB Bradley Fletcher would probably be one of the Patriots’ starting cornerbacks if the season began today.
  • Reiss wonders if the Patriots could consider parting with OT Nate Solder if a team like the Broncos called an offered them a first-round pick.
  • According to Reiss, left guard is a “significant question mark” for the Patriots. Reiss mentions that it could be too risky for the Pats to not re-sign Dan Connolly.
