Zac Taylor on the release of Mark Walton: “It's hard anytime you deal with a player who's put a lot of work into their career. The unfortunate thing about these situations sometimes is that you don't really get a chance to know the player when you're a new head coach. There's a human element to this stuff, but we want things done a certain way, and we're appreciative of the players that are here in the building and doing things the right way. That's our expectation here at the Bengals.”

Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson has a busy month ahead with 22 top-30 visits scheduled, including the Bengals and Bucs this week, per a source. The NCAA's all-time sack leader had his combine invite rescinded when a background check revealed he was involved in a fight at a McDonald's his freshman year and was charged with public intoxication. He's been eager to show teams that he's grown from the incidents.

Why did the Bengals re-sign RT Bobby Hart? The move was not a popular one with fans. Bengals vice president Troy Blackburn said: "For those who say you shouldn't have signed Bobby Hart, who is going to play right tackle? Who? Oh, maybe you'll draft one in the third round and he'll come on. Really? You're going to bet your season on that? We may still draft somebody. We haven't had the draft yet. But you just can't criticize. In our business you have to solve the problem. If you're not going to play him, tell me who? Trent Brown at 17 million? Really? A seventh-round draft pick? Let go essentially by his team. Really? We can't go to WalMart and buy off the shelf. A high quality starting right tackle? That doesn't exist (in free agency). You have to deal in the universe of options you have. We ended up signing eight guys. That's probably above average. Were they perfect? You're not going to get perfect. ... There aren't perfect options out there. We asked Willie Anderson if he could go to a time machine and come back at age 25. We'd love to sign him, but you have to deal in your universe of options. I think the data would say we signed more guys than most in line with the cap that we talked about. If there are surprises out there we'll try to be flexible and aggressive, but normally there are no surprises out there."

It wasn't easy for Mike Brown and the Bengals to move on from Vontaze Burfict, but it was also time. "Burfict, when he was healthy and playing at the level he could play, was exceptional," Brown said. "All this stuff that came on detracted from his ability to play effectively and we suffered from it. It gives us a little clearer path forward. I don't expect we're going to have to defend whoever is out there this year the way we've had to defend Burfict. And some of the stuff he was accused of in my mind was overdrawn. But it was the fact he was accused and we had all the repercussions with it."

Bengals' Brown explains no vote on revised replay

Bengals owner Mike Brown told local reporters Wednesday that his lone dissenting vote against revised instant replay rules was rooted in a long-held stance that replay interrupts the flow of a game.

As A.J. Green enters the last year of his contract, it certainly seems that the Bengals are going to try to keep him despite recent injuries and the fact that he'll be 31 this year. "I think he's a proven commodity and the price range for him will be something that I think we'll be able to figure out and come together," Mike Brown said. "It's true with anyone, if they suddenly get an injury that reduces him, well that changes the equation. But I never plan on that happening and I like to think it won't happen. If A.J. is healthy, he's as good a receiver as anybody in the league."
