He also wouldn’t mind if he’s reunited with his old teammate Dwayne Haskins."Bengals’ center Billy Price is going into a strange offseason. Last year he came in as a first-round pick Germaine Pratt Jersey 2019 , and was clearly one of the franchises’ biggest additions to a huge area of need. He recently shared some thoughts on the upcoming season as well as Dwayne Haskins, who he spent time with at Ohio State.Haskins’ draft stock has had what seemed to be a rough week as rumors of him potentially falling in the draft circulate. It seems that he could theoretically slide all the way out of the first round, which is something Price wouldn’t hate if it meant the Bengals had a shot at drafting him.“I think Dwayne is going to be a franchise guy later on, once he gets the offense rolling, once he gets complete control of what he’s doing in whatever program, whatever franchise, whatever type of offense he’s in,” Price told Bob Papa and Charlie Weis on The Opening Drive. “He’s going to be phenomenal. And I really look forward to watching him develop as he gets up in the NFL. Again, I’d love to see him close to home in Cincinnati with me whenever, you know, Andy (Dalton) decides to hang it up. But it’s going to be great. He’s going to be a very good player.”Price may not have shared the field that often with Haskins (he only appeared in eight games during the 2017 season without much action), but Price did see him everyday at practice. He also watched him play like we did when he put up 50 passing touchdowns last season.The Bengals could also be an ideal spot for something else that Price mentioned. They could give Haskins time to sit and gain control over the new offensive system being put into place in Cincinnati. Many analysts think Haskins could benefit greatly from having a season or two to sit and adjust to the NFL game. After all, he only started one season at Ohio State and he is only 21-years-old.Price also does a great job of trying to not make it seem like he is stepping on his current quarterback’s toes. It does seem more like he views Haskins as a quarterback of the future and not an outright replacement for Dalton.He went on to talk about the challenges this offseason brings to a player like himself. After Cincinnati ultimately ended their third straight losing season, he found himself on a team with a new head coach as well as offensive line coach than last year. “These guys weren’t the guys that drafted you,” Price said. “Coach Pollack and Coach Lewis gave me a great opportunity in Cincinnati. It’s just tremendous, tremendous expectation, especially on myself, especially coming in early. Went through preseason, went through the first two games Color Rush Germaine Pratt Jersey , (suffered a foot injury) in the second game, and then I went away had some rough stuff, issues that I had to make sure I got fixed on the field-wise.“And then coming into this year again, (new offensive line coach Jim) Turner and I have never worked together before. He’s never been able to coach me, I’ve never been under his authority, etc. So I have to prove to him, I have to show him that I am his guy, a franchise guy in the center of that line, making sure I hold things down.”It is clear that Price is bringing the correct mindset to this change in coaching. There are players who could feel anxious about their spot in the future plans of this team, but Price isn’t ready to be written off without a fight. He seems ready to prove that he was worth the pick Cincinnati used on him, and that even if Zac Taylor and Jim Turner didn’t pick him themselves, he is going to make them feel like they are glad they inherited him. ATLANTA (AP) — Watching from the Cincinnati sideline, Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick couldn't stop smiling as he watched Bengals receivers Tyler Boyd and A.J. Green shred the Atlanta Falcons‘ secondary on the game-winning drive."They went crazy," Kirkpatrick said. "Watching them do what they do puts big smiles on everybody's faces. This is what it's about."Andy Dalton threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Green with 7 seconds remaining, lifting Cincinnati to a 37-36 win over the Falcons on Sunday in a game that extends the first-place Bengals' strong start. Dalton completed four passes to Boyd, including two on fourth downs, as he moved the Bengals 75 yards on 16 plays in about four minutes.Green, the former University of Georgia star making his first return to the state of Georgia, made a diving catch in the right side of the end zone to cap the drive. He had four catches for 78 yards.Running back Joe Mixon Cheap Germaine Pratt Jersey , who missed his second straight game for Cincinnati while recovering from knee surgery, ran down the sideline to celebrate with Green in the end zone."Every time we were in the huddle we were encouraging each other and saying we've got to find a way," said tight end C.J. Uzomah. "We made it happen."Giovani Bernard ran for 69 yards and two touchdowns for Cincinnati (3-1).Kirkpatrick said the Bengals are "fighting for each other, standing up for each other, believing in each other. In previous years, we haven't had that."Matt Ryan continued his resurgence by throwing three scoring passes, including two to rookie Calvin Ridley, for the Falcons.As was the case last week, when he had his first career game with five touchdown passes in a 43-37 overtime loss to New Orleans, Ryan had too little support from a defense missing three injured starters, despite three sacks from Takk McKinley .The Falcons (1-3) topped 30 points for the third straight week. Ryan, the 2016 NFL MVP, has thrown eight touchdown passes in his past two weeks and has 10 through four games after throwing only 20 in 2017.Falcons coach Dan Quinn said his team lacks the instinct needed "to close the door" with a lead. "We're going to develop that instinct," he said. "We do not have it as we need it right now."The Bengals, protecting at least a share of the AFC North lead, have enjoyed a strong start despite playing three of their first four games on the road. They play six of their next eight at home.Atlanta's Matt Bryant, who kicked three field goals, including a 55-yard field goal in the second quarter, was good from 32 yards to give the Falcons a 36-31 lead with 4:15 remaining.That was too much time for Dalton Germaine Pratt Jersey Womens , who completed 29 of 41 passes for 336 yards and three touchdowns and one interception.Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert had four catches for 38 yards, including a 15-yard scoring catch in the first quarter, before suffering a gruesome lower right leg injury early in the third quarter.Eifert, the team's third-leading receiver entering the game, caught a 2-yard pass and was tackled by De'Vondre Campbell and Jack Crawford. Eifert brought his hands up to his helmet as he was on his back in obvious pain. His leg stabilized by the medical staff, Eifert received encouragement from teammates before he was carted off the field.INJURY REPORTBengals halfback Mark Walton did not return and was being treated for a possible concussion after a helmet-to-helmet penalty hit by Brian Poole near the end of the third. Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett had an ankle injury late in the fourth and did not return.RISING STARKirkpatrick talked during the week about winning bragging rights with fellow former Alabama star Julio Jones, who had nine catches for 173 yards. Kirkpatrick was impressed with Ridley, another former Alabama player who had four catches for 54 yards. Ridley had scoring catches of 11 and 30 yards, giving him five in his past two games and six for the season."That Ridley kid, the boy is about to take the NFL by storm," Kirkpatrick said. "That boy if not this year, if not next year, he's definitely going to be top 10 in the league."PRESIDENTIAL VISITFormer President Jimmy Carter was given a No. 39 Falcons jersey, as the 39th U.S. president. In a pregame ceremony, Carter was presented a birthday cake by team owner Arthur Blank one day before Carter's 94th birthday.Carter also rang the pregame train horn and yelled "Rise Up" to Falcons fans.MENDINGEach team was without its top running back. Devonta Freeman missed his third straight game for Atlanta with a sore right knee. Mixon was held out for the second straight week for the Bengals after having debris removed from his right knee.LONG TIMEThe Bengals lead the series 9-5 following their first win in Atlanta since a 16-10 victory on Nov. 15, 1987, at old Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.UP NEXTBengals: host Miami Dolphins next Sunday.Falcons: Visit the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in first road game since opening season at Philadelphia.
