Bengals' Andy Dalton: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dalton (thumb) has been tossing a football for the past two weeks and recently began shooting a basketball, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports.

Dalton seems to be on track in the rehab process after having surgery in late November to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb. There have been some murmurs about the Bengals trying to find a new quarterback for their new coaching staff, but director of player personnel Duke Tobin recently said Dalton will enter 2019 as the starter. With two seasons remaining on a team-friendly contract, the 31-year-old quarterback may push for some type of financial commitment to back up the supportive words. Dalton was one of the few bright spots for Cincinnati in 2018 and has been a regular presence at the team facility while rehabbing during the early portion of the offseason. NFL rules demand that he waits until April to receive the new playbook from head coach Zac Taylor and offensive coordinator Brian Callahan.

Bengals' Brad Kaaya: Claimed by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaaya was claimed off waivers by the Bengals on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Kaaya was waived by the Colts on Feb. 8 after spending the 2018 season on injured reserve due to an undisclosed injury. The 2017 sixth-round pick has yet to earn a job at the NFL level, but he showed potential during his tenure at the University of Miami. He'll attempt to compete with Tom Savage for the No. 3 QB job this offseason.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Candidate to be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals may move on from Burfict (concussion) during the offseason, ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell reports.

Burfict played just 43 games the past five seasons, limited by a mixture of suspensions (three), concussions (seven documented) and other injuries. He's only 28 years old, but his peak form hasn't been seen since 2016 and the new coaching staff doesn't have any investment. Burfict has two seasons remaining on a three-year, $33.2 million extension, with a dead cap charge of only $1.8 million if the Bengals decide to release him, per overthecap.com. He'd presumably need to accept a pay cut to have any chance at staying in Cincinnati.

Bengals' A.J. Green: Sheds walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (toe) is out of his walking boot and could be back on the practice field as soon as May or June, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Green recently spoke with Antonio Gates, who said it took four or five months to regain full range of motion after he had the same procedure done by the same surgeon in February 2008. The tight end suffered a noticeable drop-off in catches and yards that season, but he also scored eight touchdowns and didn't miss any games. With far more time to recover after Dec. 11 surgery, Green should be back to full strength before training camp, if not in time for OTAs. He said he's excited about the transition to head coach Zac Taylor, comparing Taylor's offensive principles to those of Jay Gruden. The 30-year-old wideout had his best statistical seasons under Gruden, averaging 97.5 catches for 1,388 yards and 11 touchdowns between the 2012 and 2013 campaigns. Green actually was on pace for similar numbers in 2018 until the toe injury derailed his season after Week 8.
