Is there any reason to be intrigued over a slightly smaller, weaker-armed version of Andy Dalton? I have no idea whether 7th rounder Logan Woodside will make the team or not, but look at how similar his game is to Dalton's. Last season after Lazor took over as OC, Dalton was getting rid of the ball pronto before before the defense tore his head off. That's exactly what Woodside had to do for Toledo.

Andy Dalton, Week 13, 2017 versus Pittspuke




Logan Woodside, September 23, 2017 versus The U




If he does make the team, it won't be like it was with AJ McCarron, as Woodside isn't projected to be a future starter. That's probably exactly what the Bungs brain trust wants. (Not that they would have ever started McCarron over Dalton barring injury, but some of the fans thought they might.)

I think he'll make the practice squad at the least but the bungs still need a reasonably good backup.   In as much as the bungs didn't fully address the OL deficiencies they are still skating on thin ice.  The excuse given was that at that point in the draft the bungs were in in the later rounds there were no OL available that they wanted so they went heavy on defense.

There's an ignominious ending for you. Woodside doesn't make the Final 53 (no surprise) and doesn't make the practice squad, either, so the Bungs can sign... Christian Hackenberg!

Christian Hackenberg joins fourth team in four months

Christian Hackenberg’s NFL-sponsored tour around the country continues.

From New York with the Jets until May 22 to Oakland to Philadelphia to Cincinnati. NFL Network reported Sunday the Bengals would add the former second-round quarterback to their practice squad. Bengals linebacker coach Jim Haslett may have vouched for him, as the former Saints head coach was a consultant for Penn State in 2015.

Philadelphia, as expected, cut Hackenberg Friday as they trimmed their roster and stuck with Carson Wentz, Nick Foles and Nate Sudfeld as their three quarterbacks. Hackenberg had signed with the Eagles in mid-August and played in their preseason finale, fittingly against the Jets, and did not perform well: 7-of-16 for 69 yards and two interceptions.

Before Philadelphia, Oakland had taken a chance on Hackenberg and cut him weeks later. The 51st-overall selection by the Jets in the 2016 draft has not panned out — never even playing in a regular-season game for the Jets — but now can try to prove himself with the Bengals.

Cute that the scribe's name is Mark Sanchez.
