Although he’s been injured here and there, his play hasn’t drop too drastically, certainly not to the level of Giants quarterback Eli Manning.In an ultra-competitive league like the NFL, you have to continue to build your own way. That said, this offseason Mark Walton Jersey , Dalton’s taking the next steps of career in his own hands by learning, watching and getting a head start on this brand new offensive system.The Bengals hired Rams quarterback coach Zac Taylor, who had a front-row seat watching Sean McVay’s offense light the NFL on fire, to be their new head coach and play-caller. All signs point towards Taylor implementing an offense similar to McVay’s, and in preparation, Dalton watched every single offensive snap of the Rams offense from last season, per Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer.“Dalton has watched every offensive snap taken last year by the Rams (Taylor was L.A.’s quarterbacks coach in 2018) John Ross Jersey , and the proficiency of the play-action game stuck out to most to the Bengals QB.”This will be a huge change for Dalton. He’s been a straight drop back quarterback in the eight years of different offenses under Marvin Lewis and his offensive coordinators. To say a noticeable change in scheme is coming may be an understatement.“That’s a product of McVay and company marrying the run game to the passing game, which creates time and opportunity for Jared Goff to strike. As Dalton says of his Rams counterpart, ‘With everything kind of looking the same, he had time back there, and he was able to get the ball down the field.’”Goff established himself as one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the league last year. After losing all seven starts in 2016 and throwing just five touchdowns with seven interceptions, McVay has developed Goff into a quarterback worth a second contract. He totaled a career-high 32 touchdowns in 2018 with Taylor as his position coach. Let’s hope Taylor can bring his success with Goff to the Queen City. Dalton’s doing his part, now Jordan Willis Jersey , we just need to see this duo’s connection on the field and winning games.

EDTShareTweetShareShareBengals re-sign Trey HopkinsAaron Doster-USA TODAY SportsThe Cincinnati Bengals have officially re-signed Trey Hopkins to a one-year contract.Hopkins, a fourth-year player in 2019, was issued a tender this offseason that made him a restricted free agent (RFA) when free agency opened. The Bengals issued Hopkins a second-round tender, all but assuring no other team would attempt to pry him from the Bengals.A restricted free agent has the right to negotiate with other teams, and an their 2018 club has the right to retain him by matching any offer he signs from another team. But because Cincinnati extended a second-round tender to Hopkins, if he signed an offer from another team and the Bengals choose to not match that offer Carl Lawson Jersey , the other team would have to compensate the Bengals with their 2019 second-round draft selection.Hopkins started at guard and center for the Bengals in 2019. He’s also capable of playing offensive tackle, so even if he doesn’t start next season, he’s a valuable backup that the Bengals were smart to re-sign this offseason.Hopkins joins Bobby Hart as starting linemen to re-sign with the Bengals this offseason.
