Cincinnati Bengals Notes, Quotes 2009-03-03
--Linebacker does not appear to be a need. With extending tenders to restricted free agents Rashad Jeanty and Brandon Johnson and coming to terms with Darryl Blackstock, the Bengals have seven signed to the roster.


--Everyone has their own way of trying to cut through the cliche questions during interviews with prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine, and Lewis is no different. One of the questions he asked them was what their typical Tuesday in school was like.

--Wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who agreed to a five-year deal with Seattle on Monday, ranks third in receptions (507), fifth in touchdown catches (37) and sixth in receiving yards (5,782).

--Lewis acknowledged that coaching the Senior Bowl did put him and his staff further ahead than at any time in evaluating draft prospects, but any advantage over the rest of the league disappears quickly. "By the time this process goes through, everybody's turned upside down 20 which ways but loose," Lewis said.

QUOTE OF NOTE: "You have to be able to provide a niche for that guy to be successful when he comes in to do something, whatever it may be. Even if it's carrying the water bottles out onto the field. I don't care what it is, he has to be able to do something he feels very comfortable doing that he was doing on his campus, and the other stuff we know is going to be learned in time." -- Lewis on having a draft pick coming in and contributing immediately.
